Clear deep amber color, teal head. Bitter, pith, citrus taste. Pith aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness. Hoppy, pith scent.
Draft - Sweet caramel and grapefruit. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Clear copper with a beige head. Sweet caramel and grapefruit notes, lots of bitterness but fairly balanced. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Wet Dog Cafe / Astoria Brewing, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma is strong, with notes of resinous and piney hops, and caramel malts. Flavour is extremely robust and intense, with loads of woody resinous hops and just enough malt to back. Loads of IBUs on this one showing their full colours. Almost too intense - certainly a kick in the face. Excellent, but only for extreme hopheads. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Thanks for this surprise, jonny! 12oz can. Pours a supremely chunky burnt orange with a thin, white cap. So many suspended chunks!!! They're settling into a swamp of grey matter. Aroma of maple, fruit juice, flowers. Taste is very bitter, with a tart balance. Super dry finish. Good carbonation.

Strong hop aroma a combo of floral and pine and citrus lurks. Really nice smell. Very hazy deep amber color with a white head that quickly filmed. The hop flavor is strong and mixed, at the start. Light carbonation. Full bodied. Good malt backbone. Dry, bitter finish of pine. Bold, and masks the alcohol quite well, a very great example of a beer that has fresh hops and a supremely backed up malt character. Nice! http://www.yelp.com/biz/wet-dog-cafe-astoria JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Deep amber pour. The aroma is intensely hoppy. Fresh pine resin and spruce. Aggressive resinous bitterness. Enamel-peeling really. A little bit of fruit and a lot of bitterness. Pretty solid IIPA

On tap at The Horse Brass Pub. Served in a 5 oz. taster. Appearance is dark amber, extremely hazy, with a thin, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, & subtle. Doesn’t really explode with aroma. Flavor is bitter upfront, with a sweet mid-palate; bitter, resiny aftertaste in the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, easy to drink. Overall: not my cup of tea. chris2431 (241) - Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft. Perfect name for this beer. Yeah it’s bitter....and it’s rough and rude like a bitch.Overall this is a tasty beer but probably could really excel with some refinement. Nice work Astoria. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Growler from the brewpub. Outstanding Imperial India Pale Ale. Dry and bitter. Crisp with a bite from start to finish. Citrus grapefruit, caramel and pine flavors. Strong hops throughout. Long bitter finish, a bit harsh with a touch of an alcohol burn. Tasty!
