4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bombers from World Beers and Pint Defiance from July to November ’12. Clear, light gold pour with a medium, off-white, lathery head leaving moderate lace. Nose is tropical fruit, grass and weed. A lot of weed. Medium-heavy body and moderate, fine carbonation. Mango, ganja, caramel, pine, cocoa and resin. Finish is a bit drier, with grapes, chocolate and of course more ganja, resin and citrus zest. Elements of Alpine’s IIPA and Ranger - unsurprisingly. I like the balance and complex hop profile of this one a great deal and the addition of Simcoe pushes it even higher in my opinion. Fresh out of the keg it must be phenomenal, but even several months down the road it holds up very well.
22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 from backlog. Pours a clear dark golden/amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, juicy citrus, herbal and light resiny hops, sticky, flavor is nice, moderate bitterness, solid DIPA. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Clear golden colored with a small white head. Sweet and floral. Liked it better as time went by. 5/12

Tap at Sidedoor. Filtered orange-tan body. Nice broad hop depth. Cleanish hop depth. Foamy, glass-lacing white head. I get a lot of dry straw tones that make me think Amarillo, with a hintof new school citrus, the Simcoe, amont the classic NW piny grapefruit tones. Comes across quite strong, I don’t think I’d want anymore than the 10oz pour I had. A respectable enough IIPA, but a touch antiquated and not so exciting. Resinous hops. Alcohol notes. Clean, well made. Pastorchris (1) - Plainview, Alabama, USA - AUG 18, 2015 does not count
I really liked it when it was cold but as it set it became less and less appealing to me. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 2 Sep 2012 -- Didn’t have many notes other than I drank this at Flying Saucer and I really liked it.

Draught at Apex, Portland, as Alpine Super IPAsturmthis (1149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
Hazy golden color. Some manure aroma. Good pale malt backbone, lean, only lightly sweet, with strong resiny hopping and some citrus fruit.
Excellent, easy to drink in the category, yet bold and hop-forward.
On draft. Orange golden color with one finger head. Tropical fruit and slight pine aroma. Flavor is similar. Can get a taste of the alcohol. Pretty good. hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Growler... Pours clear and amber with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features a medley of tropical fruits and a note of orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and bright, with a moderate measure of hoppy bitterness and a lesser ration of honey and biscuit sweetness. The mouth-watering finish is fruity and a touch sweet. Bottle courtesy of ctipping and/or landhoney! VertBaconStrips (2397) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - FEB 8, 2015
Revo. Spicy, peach, pungent, sweet grapefruit, pine, chewy, tropics, just a massive avalanche of potent everything. Awesome. Just let it warm up! reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
12oz tulip glass on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with some grapefruit and light grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a high quality DIPA that is well balanced and tasty and definitely worth tasting.
