anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Tap. Pours clear dark amber. Aroma is actually rather malty instead of hoppy. Some grass and pine. Body is heavy, rather bitter but still sweet, with a lively but low carbonation. Okay. monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2016
A nice boozy IPA from Sasquatch. Pours a beautiful bright orange-red with a white head. Smells of berries, citrus, pineapple. Taste starts sweet, with berries and citrus, then some grapefruit and a nice balancing bitterness in the finish. Had on tap at the Brewery. mcberko (17339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
On tap at Saraveza’s 6th IIPA Fest, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out stinky feet, caramel and zesty hops. Flavour is sweet, with zesty hops, caramel, and stinky feet. What a strange beer. A little off but not a total disaster. Meh. AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2014
Malt and hop aroma. Hazy amber with very little head. Some sweetness, malt, caramel and bitterness flavor. Nice beer Theydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at Bailey’s Taproom, PDX, 26/05/13.
Hazed dark amber with a thin off white head which clears to the edge and leaves a thin film.
Nose is caramel malt forward, bitter tropical notes, faintest of hop aromas due to malt domination.
Taste comprises a big malt hit, caramel, bitter grapefruit, sugars, booze.
Full bodied, moderate carbonation, warming booze in the finish.
A sub par example of the style, all malt and booze.

On tap at the brewpub. Bitterness throughout with a big malty background. Balance is a bit off. Solid IPA finish. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. On Tap at the brewery. Light Hops flavor rich and thick malt. This was a malt bomb. Big beer needed more hops. douglas88 (9059) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma is big green and fresh hops, light tangerine. The is a big IBU beer and is bitter throughout, again green hops, almost metallic big bitterness. This is decent, but it really lacks balance. More late boil additions would help and some balance from the malt. Just comes across as almost all bitterness.
