A full-bodied double IPA, Forester is an expansion of our ever-popular Evo IPA. Its Simcoe, Centennial and Super Galena hop profile brings soft floral aroma while citrus plays on the tongue. Finishing with a fresh bitterness, it leaves you wanting another sip…and another.

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orangey amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of rich caramel malts, resinous hops, and some residual sugars. Flavour is very malt-heavy for a IIPA, with loads of caramel malts, some honey, resinous hops and some residual sugars. Much too malty for my liking for a IIPA, but admittedly well-made and not cloying. Good stuff.

pours a cloudy amber-red with a small light tan head, a slight amount of sediment, and good lacing. smell is of caramel, roasted malt, and few hops. taste is strong, almost like a barley-wine, caramel, malt, hops, a slight sweetness, and wood. ends malty with a lingering bitterness.

Darker than most DIPA’s. Aroma is lemony and overly sweet. Taste follows suit. A little cloying and honestly hard to drink.

Aubrey (3502) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Big, malt-forward double IPA. Lots of caramel and sweet bread. Honey-like sweetness as well. Hops are balanced. Sugar-coated pine, sweet grass and honey-dipped flower petals. Tasty beer, though it drinks more like a barleywine than a double IPA.

riversideAK (5831) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Lots of caramel and biscuit on the nose, light lime and citrus notes, a little iced tea. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of biscuit, caramel, lime iced tea, a little danky citrus notes as well. Biscuity finish. Not my favorite. Way too much biscuit and crystal malt. Jesus.

Draft at uber. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose white head. Funky earthy nose, almost a little barnyardy. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, oranges, and herbs on the mid palate. Mild finish.

ACHops (1031) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2013
On tap @ Noble Fir. Pours bright orange amber with thick even white head. Aroma is big caramel malt and just a hint of grassy hops. Taste is sweet rich malt with smooth bitter hops. Hops are fresh and piney, with a little citrus evident before the strong bitter finish. Nice step up from the Evo IPA, maintains the solid hop balance that has. Excellent hops here, would like to see a little more out of them than heavy bitterness.
