Poured from the bottle, pours unfiltered orange with solid white lacing head. Head doesn't dissipate and stays throughout tasting.

Smell isn't too unfamiliar with the style. Citrus and pine.

Excellent taste, reminds me of Bigfoot 2009. Large Hop taste Cascade maybe . Upfront the taste is simply Hops. You get the malt with a solid taste of hops in the background. This makes me give it a five on the mouthfeel.

This is a good beer excellent for the style and packs a punch which makes me think this is a DIPA.

Received as an extra in a trade from Bobsliquors.

Quick review. Solid IPA. Glad to have tried it, but nothing overwhelming about it. Fresh hop, mild citrus aroma and taste. Very nice mouthfeel. Good carbonation. Solid effort from old,schoolhouse.

Picked this up at Bottleworks over the weekend... Shared with reinheitsgematt tonight...

The nice fella at Bottleworks suggested this and his bigger brother as the cool hopcentric beers they had in stock at the time.

Pours a dark golden... great head and lacing.

The nose is fantastic... tropical fruity hoppiness and a very light pale malt backbone... The aromas are great.

Flavor mirrors the nose with a surprisingly mild bitter bite that is only balanced by the onslaught of hop flavors... again, this is pretty special.

Body and carbonation are very nice.

This brew is a damn near perfect example of a balanced PNW IPA... loving it.

4/4.5/4.5/4/4.5

Bottled: unk

Pours a golden raisin ale with a solid quilt of cream foam. Smells of malt, biscuit, some faint hops, some caramel - unimpressive. Flavor is just malt, sweet and roasted malt. A touch of bitterness. Poor flavor as well. Medium bodied with low carb and a semidry finish. I wish I knew the bottling date of this beer, I've many good things, but I'm uncertain of the date, which gives me every reason to believe this beer could have come from the Huck's cellar easily a year old.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

eyes...
1 white finger of head, lacing is sticky and even, golden orange hue with organized columns of bubbly filtering to the surface, standard looking with good highlights

nose...
nice toasted malt mixed with just slightly citric hop, the malt feels like it is holding this up, nothing spectacular but a really fine and consistent balance (and there is something to be said for that my friends)

taste etc...
as expected the malt is really there, and it has a nice toasty tinge to it (not roasted), the initial hop blast is a bit... hmmm... kind of acerbic (slightly) and in the front of the mouth which then fades into the malt and then bitterness in the back of the mouth, this is not your over alpha hopped IPA (some of which I love but it can be the most over done thing since that bread slicing thing), there is almost a medicinal/spearmint thing going on with the hops that is keeping me from enjoying this more (as the malt profile is just superb)

survey says?
a little off for my personal taste... but man the malt flavor here is great and worth a try, it may be your thing. I enjoyed it but I won't go searching out another (although I would not kick her out of bed, or as brian says "I wouldn't mind if she ate crackers"... whatever the hell that means...)
