Tasted on tap at Walking Man. A great imperial IPA. Not overpowering in the hops or alcohol taste. Just a splendid mix of bittering and flavoring hops.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13. Clear dark amber with a thin off white head which retains well. Nose is hops, bitter orange, light pine, caramel notes. Taste comprises a caramel malt backbone, hops, pine resin, bitter grapefruit, orange pith, light tropicals. Full bodied with fine carbonation, good hop bite in the finish. Decent enough DIPA.

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.

zizzybalubba (1315) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap at Walking Man Brewing & Public House in Stevenson, WA. Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Clean floral hop aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Well-balanced blend of assertive, bitter grapefruit and sweet malt. Some lingering bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol somewhat detected from the dryness. Very good overall.

BK7 (693) - Turner, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
On tap at Venti’s South. Big malty caramel base with a mild dry hoppy bitterness throughout. Balance seems a bit off. Weaker than expected finish.

douglas88 (5553) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2012

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Cask @ Red Hot. Hazy burnt orange pour with a short off-white head leaving heavy lace and having good retention. Nose is tropical fruit and pine, with some roasty malt. Medium-heavy body and light carbonation Medium-roast malt, pine and tropical fruit, and a bit of ethanol bitterness. Finish is medium, sweet and bitter. I think this might be hotter and more bitter out of a keg based on my previous tastings - seek it out on cask

Growler served in a tulip. Deep amber-brown in color, syrupy dense looking body, with a large, fluffy orange-white head. Great retention and lacing. Bomb. Aroma is fruity orange citrus, pine, toffee, earth, and caramel. Full-medium body. Sweet attack, followed by a hit of carbonation, a creamy texture, rolling layers of robust hops with heavy malt undertones, and a piney bitter finish. Excellent brew.
