I was expecting a NW hop explosion from this, instead, I got a serious introduction to the malt backbone. Not sorry I bought this, but not quite what I expected. In any case, if you like malt, this one’s for you.
Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok.

Tap at brewery. Crisp filtered dark copper color, minimal head. I definitely get the "malt backbone", orange, banana, lime, and some sweet sugary hops. Interesting bitterness, but not the hop kind, there’s something there that lingers around and is slightly un-tasty. Somewhat hot wet mouthfeel. O.K...But I wouldn’t go as far as calling it an Imperial though. Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
A well made, nicely balanced beer. Because of the balance, the hopheads rate it far lower than it should be, but I pay no attention to them anyhow. stantheman (1050) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
A 4 oz taster at Brewers by the Bay festival in Bellingham WA. A medium amber, medium hop, big malt. 3.3 mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2015
No real nose on this one, but tastes great. This is an IpA? Tastes more like a hoppy Amber. Nice lingering sweetness to it.

7 Seas Ballz Deep Double IPA 8.4%
On tap at Garage 39’s 2nd Anniversary Event. An orange gold pour with a thick beige head. The nose is big juicy citrus.mefium bodied with a raspy mouthfeel. The taste is sweet malts, fruity citrus, mint & pine. Tasty easy drinking stuff. Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Light bronze, touch of haze. Thin head. Light rambutan aromas and a subtle toasty crystal chewiness. Quite sweet, smooth but very caramel, and a dash of toffee. Poolieo (46) - Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2015
A hoppy flavor with sort of a sea salt after taste. Strong aroma but lite on mouth feel. Beware 8.4% alcohol.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tumbler on 11.13.14.
A: Citrusy. It smells a lot like Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s. Tropical fruit with a big brown sugar malt base.
A: 2 finger head. See through red/amber body.
T: Pineapple and brown sugar dominate. Pine is subtle and on the back end.
O: It really does smell and taste a lot like Deviant Dale’s, but it’s a bit rougher around the edges. Setting that aside, it’s not in the West Coast style because it has a big malt presence. This does have a nice bittersweet piney sting on the back end. andrewje41 (3879) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2014
16 Oz can pour. Pours a copper color. Bitter hops and caramel malt flavors, and a little boozy. Decent flavor here. You can tell it’s strong by the taste. Overall a pretty good IIPA. Will drink again.
