ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 2/3/13

Aroma: The aroma of this one is clean and hoppy with pale malts, a little citrus, and some spice
Appearance: It pours a hazed dark orange color with a large, thick off-white head and plenty of lace
Flavor: The flavor is a kind of sweet, a little malty/bready, and has a medium-heavy hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a nice feel, though it has too much carbonation, and it finishes dry
Overall Impression: This is my first beer from Diamond Knot, and it makes a solid first impression. This is a fairly hoppy beer for sure. It may not have a perfect balance, and it may be too carbonated, but overall it hits the spot for a nice, hopped-up beer.

On tap at brewpub in Mukilteo, Washington. Pours clear, bright orange-yellow with no head or lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, wet pine cones. Flavor: malt-forward; brown sugar, honey, rye pepperiness, sweet hops. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied.

hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine. Pours murky orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is syrup at first, but has hints of orange, floral hops, and caramel as well. Flavor is not too syrupy. Kinda earthy undertones below some pine, oily citrus, toffee, soap, and bread crust.

3.5
bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Rating #2082- 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 184 - Bottleshare - Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild citrus sweetness, mild pine Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of piney, resinous notes, again subtle citrus sweetness. Fairly balanced in terms of hop profile, and managing the ABV, this is a solid DIPA

stevoj (5574) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle from Harvest Foods in Moses Lake. Deep amber with silky beige head. Malt dominates the aroma, nice caramelly scent. Malt also provides most of the flavor, with some hops at the end drying the whole thing out. Close to an English IPA.

3.3
slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Sweet and biscuit malts meet big citrus and pine hops. Better than the standard IPA - still just in the ok range.

3.9
teamsale (308) - Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle into glass. Pours a semi-clear amber with a two finger white head. Smells fairly standard, nothing special found in the aroma. Really, really nice flavor on this one. Strong malt balanced well with strong hops. Just the right sweetness and perfect bitterness. Scores highest where it counts the most.

Bottle shared. Rich green citrus hop bouquet with a minty edge, decent biscuit malt base, quite punchy yet smooth iipa, good stuff.

3.6
DWestrick (818) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2016
bottle. Much closer to an imperial. Powerful IPA with nice flavor. Really enjoyed it

3.5
Freaky_tiki (1357) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine in Fort Myers. If you’re expecting a heavy hitting hop bomb with this double ipa this ain’t your brew. Hops are a little one dimensional, more for bitterness than hop heavy flavour. Malts are too drenched in honey. Regardless, I like it & will drink this with joy.
