3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice sunset orange color with a finger white head. Dissipates slowly and leaves a soapy lacing. Smells of dank pine, some grass, grapefruit, pineapple, a little mango, lemon. Some sweetness from the malt. Taste starts with a nice dose of pineapple, grapefruit, and other fruits. Some bitterness. Very creamy mouthfeel from the start. Then get the carmel malt in the middle along with more astringent bitterness and citrus fruits. Finishes very bitter, but still get some sweetness and the creaminess of the beer somewhat relieves the bitterness. Not the most balanced, but this is meant to be a west coast style ipa. Pretty full body with no alcohol detection on the nose or the taste, but does go down somewhat warm. As it warms, it gets much better. Gets much more complex with more citrus fruit and pine flavors from the hops. Nicely done.
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 (6298) - 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 (1174) - 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 (1195) - 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 (11436) - 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 (2422) - 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 (6403) - 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.
