Sampled at the Rogue Public House in SF.
Pours a pretty looking orange color with a little bit of haze. White head is sticky as hell, leaving all kinds of lace.
Smell...whoa!!!! Incredible - powerful malty sweetness with matched by equally powerful citric hop bitterness. Alcohol is there too.
This one will whip your taste buds butt, so save it for last in a tasting session. Tastes brilliant - so thick, and rich - in-your-face and complex at the same time. A delicious, delicious DIPA.
HIGHLY recommended. Seek this one out on tap because at $13/750ml it is on the pricey side.
Serving type: on-tap

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
Serving type: growler
