4.3/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Apearance - Pours a hazy amber orange with a one and a half finger head fades rather quickly to a cap.

Nose- Slightly sweet grapefruit and pine hops.

Palate- Grapefruit comes through strong just for an instant, then sweet tropical fruits emerge to set the stage for the hops. The same citrus and pine hops grow steadily, but do not try to accomplish too much. Nice balance.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation.

Drinkability- I could drink this all night and be happy about it.

Overall- After being unimpressed with the DIPA, my hopes weren't too high for this one, but I can see why it is their flagship. Diamond Knot, you have redeemed yourselves.

One of the few cases I will take a light but nice aroma and give it a positive review that overtakes an also light ipa flavor that underwhelms. Color and clarity is nice, but I cant rank this overall positive with how pilsner-y with a slight hop bite beer any better than ive already given it credit for...

This Beer can grow a bit on you. Taste better as you drink it. Better then a Ranger IPA but close in taste, just a little bit better. The Ranger never got better after the first taste. Another IPA good for a Hot day in Texas but doesn't fit the PNW weather at all. Not for Sailors.

Thick, thick head. Slightly more pale than most IPA'S that I am used to. Smells delicious. The way I believe an IPA should smell. The taste is a wonderfull balance of hops and malts . Neither of which are TOO dominant. Enough hops to make it interesting and bitterly intriguing, and enough malts to make it incredibly drinkable. I normally dont drink bombers very fast but I downed this wonderful craft from the beautiful Mukilteo, WA.
I have been wanting to try this beer for some time now and I am glad I finally did. What an excellent NW style IPA. I cannot wait to experience more from Diamond Knot.
