Dark copper and pellucid. White, frothy head that is almost creamy. Nose of citrus and pine. There’s almost a hint of cedar there. I have no idea why. Fruity with notes of oranges and a little of the pine comes through with the flavor. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of toasted malts. Finshes smooth and easy. I could drink this a lot.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Big citrus on the nose, soft sticky oxidized fruity malt on the nose. Medium bodied, earthy citrus, a bunch of malt, getting a bit of fruit. Slow malt into the finish, malt, sticky and big. Comes across flabby and very malt. mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Great taste! Great head. Love the taste. Nice Amber malt. I like this. Delicious. andrewje41 (4021) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Draft pour pint at the West Seattle location. Listed as an organic IPA. First visit to this location, the site of this beer’s origin. Pours a dark copper color with a thick foam head. Soft grain aroma. Flavor is a little nutty, caramel malt, and a heavy bitter hop bill. Malt heavy linger. They call it an IPA, but the malt presence is dominating here. Not a slammer here, less my liking for an IPA. Or strong ale. Whatever is. Was alright. gnoff (10711) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
On June 23, 2015. At Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub in Seattle, Washington.

As "Demolition Imperial IPA".
Clear amber color, yellow head. Hoppy, fruity taste. Bitter aftertaste, also some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, medium high to high bitterness. Hoppy, fruity scent.
Billed as the hoppier DIPA on at the time, this is actually pretty similar, maybe with more citrusy character but still old school crystal malt forward. Ferris (15906) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Draft - Sweet caramel east coast style. Hazy copper with a decent head. Lots of caramel and bitterness. Resinous finish. Odd for something not an IPA. kathouse (1914) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Deep golden/orange color with a foam that clings well to the glass. Earthy hops along with tangerine and grapefruits. Moderate bitterness but pleasant to drink. Toffee malts try to keep up. Finish drags on with hop flavor and light alcohol. jsnicholas (635) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2014
