Tap. Pours a dark gold with white head. Floral and citrus hops as well as sweet malts in the aroma. Smooth malts and bitter hops in the taste. Delicious!

Bottle thanks to Mike!! Nice sample pour of deep golden almost amber with a smaller white head. Nose is hops and some resin, plenty of citrus. Flavor is mostly hops with a mild malt backing. Plenty of citrus without being overdone. Medium to light body with faint lacing. Well done and enjoyable!

Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a mostly clear burnt orange color with a small head that fades normally. Aroma is musty fresh hops, mostly floral, piney, and citrus with a bit of malt too. Taste has a strong bitterness and lots of hops. Very dry too. Hard to describe but the taste falls a little flat. A little too dry and bitter with nothing to balance it. Mouthfeel is creamy and a bit foamy. Overall its still pretty solid.

Murky golden pour, average head, aroma of pine and resin. Flavor is moderately bitter with low hop complexity, and a simple malt background. Finishes with a linger resiny finish that work pretty well for me.Decent and easy to drink but nothing special. Fits my preference for DIPAs that arenít real bitter, so this is one I could come back to again.

One of the better west coast non CA IPAís I have tasted. Pretty nice balance of hops and malt without the alcohol standing out.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. I think the bottle is bad because there is a lot more tin and alcohol than hops. Aroma and flavor the same. Average texture. Maybe itís good, but my bottle wasnít.

From a 22 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear light amber with a thin white head. Light hop aroma. Grassy flavors with subtle notes of orange peel and grapefruit zest. Bitter finish. Decent DIPA.

Drank from bomber pored into pilsner glass at home. Aroma- nothing substantial. Floral notes but nothing stands out. Appearance- golden orange color with light carbonation and head. Taste- light hoppiness with a bit of sweetness. Not great but not bad. Palate- this is the first bit of hops i have noticed. Good dry hop finish. Overall- good beer but not what i expect from a dipa. Pleasant throughout.

Draught at dog and pony Renton, Wa. Huge tropical pine and resin blast. Flavor is heavy pine, grapefruit, and soft malt. MF is sticky and resiny with a very astringent note. Cherishing it as a NW experience. A hop fix.
