Hazy amber color with medium head. The strong malty character of this beer and medium sweetness level, although both lovely, label this as an old school IIPA; the hops are strong, more resiny than else, a bit orangey too; the malts also have a mild biscuity note. The caramel still dominates the final. The alcohol is well conceived.
Excellent powerful beer, I wouldn’t drink more than a glass of it per session though.

jsnicholas (456) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle (22oz $5.50) Hazy golden with smallish white head that disappears. Somewhat sweet, malty, but turns much more bitter than I like. The bitterness is not sudden, but builds and lingers and ends up tasting metallic. Not balanced IMHO.

maxwelldeux (4271) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some floral and fruity notes, but does smell a little old and earthy. Taste has that earthy bitterness that comes up when hops are past their prime.

tcon25 (387) - Duvall, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle pour at home, thick golden pour, little head. Little spice and bitter aroma, nice flavor of hops, citrus, oranges. Hides the ABV well.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bomber. Golden amber pour topped with a sudsy layer of beige foam and bubbles. Lots of floral hops, sugary malt and orange blossom honey in the aroma. Taste is a blend of pine, orange rind and caramel malt along with some ruby red grapefruit and grassy bitterness to round things out. Definitely one of the maltier PNW style DIPA’s. Glad they finally bottled it.

50belair (3167) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Burnt orange pour with a white head. Heavy caramel malt aromas. Loads of pine and resin hop notes run head first into the huge caramel malt backbone. Eucalyptus undercurrents. Average body and mouthfeel.

Draft at Uber, Seattle. Rich golden pour. Heavy banana, malty strong DIPA. Sweet, heavy yeast. Strong coating flavor, but it isn’t adding up well for me, the flavors are strong but not tasty at all to me.

just billed as Walking Man Imperial IPA at Old Mill Brew Werks in bend. Lots of respect for this, but I suspect a combo of old kegs/dirty lines. This wasn’t anything special, especially for a double IPA. More than ample bitterness, but little else. Lacking in aroma and flavor, by a long shot. Hope to be able to give this another chance one day...
