Growler from ABV. Pouring a clear copper with a dense, off white head with excellent retention and very nice lacing, this looks great! The nose opens with a big blast of Cascade hops, citrus, chalky and moderately juicy. Candied grapefruit and citrus are present along with an intense pine oil aroma. Malt is moderate, caramel and bready in nature. The palate opens with an intense, pungent pinesol bitterness and flavor, massively resiny, immensely dank and hilariously over the top. Alcohol and sweetness are noticeable and add an intensity to the palate. Simple syrup, bread, caramel and a little burnt toast are noticeable. The mid palate has some of the citrus and fruit flavors with candied grapefruit, honeydew melon and orange peel. Mildly sweet and quite bitter on the finish, this beer is medium-full in body and softly carbonated. The booze, the bitterness and the sweetness make this a little difficult to drink a ton of. Decent stuff.

On tap at Walking Man in Stevenson, WA. Resinous and strong hop flavor, but still smooth and balanced with with an ample malt profile. Masks alcohol very well. Finishes bitter through a long aftertaste. Perfect beer!

Had this at the brewpub. Nice caramel color! Very easy drinking, hides the alcohol very well. A bit sweet in the front and a very well balanced finish! Great beer!

Growler thanks to Brian! Pours clear deep reddish brown with a medium brown head, creamy with good lacing. Aroma is malty caramel, pine, a bit of citrus. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Too malty for my personal taste.

On tap @ the brewpub in Stevenson. Pours dull golden amber with thick fluffy head. Aroma is earthy sweet grassy hops. Taste is syrupy sweet caramel malt, followed by big grapefruit bitterness. Lingers bitter on the finish. Hits all the right DIPA notes, a actually kind of mild for the style.
