3.2/5 rDev -20.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
22oz bottle, unknown date. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours lightly hazy orange/amber with a good off-white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing and maintains a small cap.
Aroma is some orange citrus, apricot, good bit of floral hops, a touch of pine, decent bit of caramel malt. Good strength.
Flavor is apricot, orange/grapefruit citrus, some resin, noticeable caramel malt backbone, decent bit of sweetness in the middle, moderate bitterness on the finish and just a little mild alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, creamy, oily, moderate carbonation.
Apricot and caramel would be the best way for me to sum this one up, and unfortunately those are not my two favorite flavors in an IPA/DIPA. I could see fans of something like Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute really diggin’ this one though...

3.71/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours an amber/hazy orange color with a white head roughly one finger in height.
Aroma: The abundance of hops in the beer give off strong earthy and floral aromas. Some subtle grapefruit aromas are present as well.
Taste: Similar to the aroma with some strong hop flavors. The citrus is more present in the taste but the earthy and floral notes are still fully there. Almost no malt in the flavor so the freshness of the hops can be appreciated.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer with a smooth mouthfeel that makes it very drinkable. For a beer with 8% ABV, it is very smooth and pretty refreshing.
Overall: A very good NW IPA. The freshness of the hops is wonderful and not overpowering in the bitterness aspect. Very drinkable and a good beer to drink on a summer evening. It also has one of my favorite names of any beer.
Serving type: on-tap
