Very tough beer. One of the breweries highest in alcohol. The atypical in your face Pacific North-West IPA.

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Imazato. Orange-golden color with lace. Nose of orange, grapefruit, biscuirts. A bit syrupy, but nice citrus flavor, solid bitterness and good, crisp carbonation. A likeable big IPA.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Big fruity nose, peach and citrus, large caramel, and some grass. Orange/amber color, 2-cm head, and some reluctant, sticky lace. Big malty initial, piney hops, doesn’t really go to balance. Final moves to an overripe date note. Medium-heavy body. Pretty good, overall. Doesn’t have the aggressive rush of malt or hops of many imperial IPAs. A really good imperial should knock your hat off with the first sip; this one merely gives you a nasty glance, and then walks on by...

luttonm (2439) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2014
22oz bottle in Seattle. Darker clear orange, small foam. Mild dense hop aroma, I imagine this isn’t as fresh as we’d like it. Smooth sweet body, apple fruitiness. Some bittering.

Arayaga2 (1813) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of pineapple and guava and taste is the same, but taken down a notch by some English character. $4/22oz

liquidhedonism (187) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2014
22 oz bottle from Portland Fruit West in Beaverton, OR. Pours clear. Aroma has notes of resin, hay, and white wine, with a hint of sweet bubblegum. Mouthfeel starts crisp and dry, and somehow finishes smooth and a bit creamy, with a short, bitter aftertaste. Masks the alcohol very well. A unique and pretty great DIPA!

julesjis (151) - Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Poured from a 22oz. Pours a light amber color, doesn’t look like a strong beer at all. It drinks very easy and smooth. Initial nose is sweet like tropical fruit but gives way to a grassy aroma. Taste is very well balanced and ever so slightly bitter. This is just a very easy drinking 8.5%-er!

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
On tap at Darby's. Pours a clear straw yellow with a low lying fine bubble whit cap that doesn't change. Aroma of biscuit, brown sugar, pink grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste is pretty sweet with a pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is clean, with a slight bit of stickiness.

AmEricanbrew (6014) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Clear light amber color with ivory head. Tooty fruity tropical fruit, pine hoppy aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice tropical fruit, pine, light citrusy hoppy bitter flavors with some dry hay, dust____nicely bitter drying finish---very tasty.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2014
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a dark golden topped with a small sand head. Nose is pine citrus hops and a sweet malt. Taste is as the nose with a nice hop combo.

IndianaRed (2606) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at Bier:Thirty, Boise at the Worthy Brewing Tap Take-Over Clear deep golden with a fine smooth off-white head. Subdued hoppy aroma. Light malts. A bit underwhelmed so far. Pretty light bodied and moderate hop profile as well. Their other beers were robust, big and flavorful, but their IPA and now this DIPA, while good, are just not very aggressive. I am impressed with Worthy but they could have aimed higher with these.
