snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2009

bvc (1158) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Draft at Uber. Pours a light cloudy straw yellow with white head that leaves a nice lace on the glass as this one goes down. Nose is floral, grassy hops with some light citrus notes and a hint of malt notes. Taste is piney hops in the front and then hits a light lemon citrus in the middle and then finishes of with some biscuit maltiness. Seems a little watery for a DIPA for me. Decent, but just not my desired flavor profile.

Hand bottle (in a mason jar) thanks to riversideak (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, ’husky’, citrus, and very light malts. Tastes of floral green hops, lighter citrus, and lighter malts. Overall very floral and ’fresh’ hoppiness.

theisti (3237) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Shaker pint on tap at the Brewpub in Port Townsend, Washington. This was 3 dollars at happy hour. Pour is hazy orange copper with a one inch off white head. Hop in nose is resiny and very full. Nice pine, citrus and a good blast of sweet biscuit maltiness as well. Nice nose. The taste starts out big with the hops, then drifts more towards the sweetness of the malt, and towards the end is edging on cloying. and start. Very grainy, almost woody. The taste is not as pronounced as I would have expected from the nose, but tasty. Decent medium palate. $3 is quite a value for a pint of IIPA!
