3.58/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a coppery color and a slightly hazy texture. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A very underplayed aroma of hops, citrus, and a bit of malt.

T: Tasted of West Coast hops, citrus (grapefruit), and some malt in the finish. A bit on the thin side for this style of beer. Not as much bite as you'd expect.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

D: While this beer is drinkable, it isn't what I would call groundbreaking.

Darker honey gold pour with 1-finger light cream head. Good retention, with half the head still remaining at the bottom of the glass. Thick chunks of lace on the back half of the glass. Very active carbonation.

Lots of hops vying for attention here. Herbal mix, with nice orange and resiny pine on top of that. Fairly substantial malt profile, too, with caramel coming out.

Nice balance of caramel malt against the herbal hops. Still getting orange (peel) and pine resin in the taste. Not oily at all. Nice ramp up of bitters in the finish, with mostly pine covering.

Feel is right on for the style and mix of flavors.

Nice DIPA with a stand-up malt profile against a strong, but balanced, hop presence.

Bottle sports a seaweed-green label showing brewery logo and deep sea diver helmet. "Fermenting change in taste since 1994." Wow, 1994...who knew?

The lightly clouded orange/rust color screams "hop-haze" and the dirty white head is on the thin side but lasts and lasts, splashing bit of lace onto the glass as it lessens and as the liquid is moved and swirled around.

Aggressive resiny hops dominate the nose, backed up with toasty, toffee-like malt. I see green in the mind's eye with every single whiff.

Doncha know, hops absolutely dominate in the taste as well. Resin pungency without tasting or feeling oily, you have to love big hops to love this. I do, and I do. Hops are even close to bracingly bitter, but the well-considered caramel/toffee sweetness of the malt has something to say about that. Hints of peppermint and citrus peel/rind are, well, more than just hints. And here come some flowery and herbal elements too. This just avoids the saltiness that many beers of this type can have. Finishes quite bitter, and the 7.9% is just about invisible. If not complex, Industrial India Pale Ale is at least hardly one-dimensional.

Smooth and slick, yet with remarkable tingle from the carbonation, this trades in creamy for tickling bubbles, and though it feels fine, I like a creamier, chewier Double IPA.

So green and bitter that it's probably not the most drinkable in its class, but the ABV is on the friendlier side of that scale. A very enjoyable hop-forward ass- and tongue-kicker.

4.15/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear, bright copper color. The tall head has a soft orange tint and a fluffy, rocky, foamy texture. Retention is impressive, leaving a nice cap of rocky, chunky foam for a nice while. Extremely impressive lacing sticks peskily in narrow concentric bands. For what it's worth, one of the best looking beers I've ever seen.

S: Some moderate sweetness - equal parts caramel and pale, sugar cookie malt aromas. Pithy citrus (orange and grapefruit), resiny pine, and light herbal/grassy hop notes feature most notably in the nose. A light, faint bit of alcohol is detectable.

T: There's a fairly robust maltiness here - caramel bordering on light toffee and some biscuity notes. Hop flavor is two parts pine resin, two parts citrus pith, and one part floral/herbal character. Bitterness is strong, but met amply by the maltiness. While not an out-and-out hop bomb, this one definitely seems like an authentic version of the style - an amped-up, robust IPA.

M: Slightly fuller than medium bodied. Carbonation is supple and on the lighter side. The finish builds gradually into a resiny dryness.

D: This is my first beer from Diamond Knot, and I'm pretty impressed. Not in the top tier of DIPA's, but not far off and definitely enjoyable on it's own right. I'd be interested in knowing more about the hop varieties added. There's a nice balance of different flavors that adds some nice complexity.

Big-ass 22oz bomber purchased at Jim's Homebrew in Spokane for $6.25. Sadly, there was no indication of age to be found on the label. I was very interested in trying a bottle of this because this beer had very briefly appeared on-tap in a few local bars about 5 or 6 years ago, but had just as quickly disappeared. I'm guessing the distributors either had something more rewarding to push in its place, there wasn't much of a response, or DK was selling so much locally that they gave up on wider distribution. I had it on-tap at the Capone's in Post Falls and was impressed, but never saw it again.

Poured a dark amber color with a bit of a chill haze to it, and took on a brighter, orangey color when held up to the light. A small yet creamy-looking off-white head stayed around for a while, leaving a surprising amount of lace on the sides of my glass.

The scent of this beer was of sweet, tropical citrus fruit. Pineapple and grapefruit were upfront. There was the smell of a bready malt backbone as well.

Hops are the star of this beer's flavor, tending towards the fruity, citrusy end of the scale, less so the bitterness end. Like a lot of DIPAs, this seems as much dominated by malts as hops, with a big, meaty (figuratively, not literally) malt backup to the hops. The hops do stay in overall command of the proceedings however, climaxing with a bitter hop zap at the swallow that is considerably more assertive than the hoppiness that had gone before.

Medium bodied, with a sticky, oily mouthfeel that was nevertheless not as massive as the mouthfeel of some DIPAs I've had.

While not as huge-drinking as a lot of DIPAs I've had, I'm not sure that's a bad thing. This is almost a "lite DIPA,", as it's not as cloying as many of its style-mates and goes down a little easier. Make no mistake - this is clearly a big IPA, but it doesn't quite smack you over the head with a shovel the way some really malty versions of the style do, and from a drinkability aspect, I kinda like that.

22oz bottle into a CCB snifter.

A - Pours a hazy amber, with a thin half-finger of head that quickly drops to a ring around the glass. Patchy lacing on the sides of the glass. Plenty of sediment in the bottle.

S - More piney than citrusy, with an odd vegetative quality that doesn't sit well sith me. Showing some signs of oxidation too, with some cardboardiness.

T - Excessively bitter but not very flavorful. Piney hops in your face and not much else to smooth things out. Cardboard, orange pith, and vegetables. It reminds me of Hopsickle in some ways, only without as much yum.

M - Nice enough, it's just not exceptional in any way. About as you'd expect in every aspect.

D - The abv is a bit high, but so even if I actually liked the beer I probably wouldn't be drinking more than one.

O - This was a gift for the holiday, rather than something I picked up myself, and it's definitely one I won't be seeking out again. Disappointing.

Pours amber with a nice head that settles to a thin cap, but leaves some nice waves of lacing against the glass. Smells fruity and full with mango, apricots, and citrus along with some sweet, honeyed malt. Similar in the taste, but with some delayed graininess that detracts a bit, and some nice bitterness in the finish, which works to subdue the malt. The mouthfeel is firm and maybe just the slightest bit sticky. Quite a nice hop profile- a piney bitterness comes out after awhile that is quite enjoyable. Nice, and I'm pleased to see this in Atlanta bottleshops.

Reviewed on 1/23/2010. Bottle thanks to riversideAK. Pours a slightly hazy dirty orange with a small white head. Aroma of lots of citrus, graperfruit, tropical fruits, grassy hops. Flavor is equally citrusy with a nice caramel malt base and bitter finish. Very tasty with a great hop profile.

Pours a deep redish amber with a egg white head. Not much head retention but plenty of lacing.

Strong hop aroma, malts earthy notes. Mostly hops..Glorious hops!

Stinging oily hop flavor, some biscuity notes as well. Finishes a with a bit of a buttery flavor. No off flavors to be found!

Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation..Very drinkable.

Very drinkable sums this one up. Its a nice solid DIPA. Very much enjoyed.

3.5/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a sifter on 12/6/10

Ever-so-slightly murky; the color is a rusty, amber-brown. The head pours just shy of one finger, dropping quickly to a patch of bubbles. One long, drippy strand of lace.

The aroma is rather malty - somewhere between DIPA & barleywine. Toasted bread, biscuit, caramel & hints of candied malt. The hops yet hold their own; pine, over-ripe citrus & dense, floral notions. Some booze is appreciable. A touch of soapiness as it warms.

The hops are more forceful to taste with a sharp, dry, piney bitterness. The bitterness isn't quite to the point of aspirin. Undertones of juicy citrus zest. Toasted bread & caramel make up the malt foundation. Though warming, there isn't any appreciable alcohol heat.

Despite fairly dense flavors, the feel is a tad watery, so it comes across as medium bodied. There's enough carbonation to accent the bitterness. Finishes gritty & very dry. Bitterness & toastiness linger.

Industrial IPA seems caught up amid style designations: IPA, DIPA, barleywine, ASA. I'm inclined to go with the later, since it tastes pretty good but doesn't tally up as a by-the-book IPA. I hope to one day try this on tap.

22oz bottle into a Hopus glass pours a crisp dark orange with a nice frothy khaki head that diminishes to a ring and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is a nice amount of dank pine hops. The taste is a nice amount of pine hops in front of sweet caramel malts, a bit off balanced, but that's not always a bad thing. The beer is only slightly heavy with a nice dryness. This one was a bit of a surprise, better than I expected, but honestly not one I'd choose again over many of the other Double IPAs that are out there.

Pours amber clear with a fluffy head that drops fairly quickly. The aroma is a bit on the syrupy side, speaking of a cheap IPA, but the flavor is somewhat better. It is heavy, with a surprisingly high degree of caramel flavor. The hops are aggressive and quite citrusy, with a bit of pine behind them. The bitterness is distinctly piny and resiny. There is an odd woody and chocolate edge to the flavor that I find puzzling. The mouthfeel is a little clingy.

Overall, this is a servicable but largely undistinguished double IPA.

Snapped up a $4 bomber, poured into a snifter. Orange-ish red with a 3/4 inch head that dies after a few minutes, leaving a thin cap that produces some lacing. Smell is hop forward, but a fair amount of pale malt in there as well. I get a healthy dose of citrusy, floral hops, possibly cascade and simcoe, in the taste, backed up by enough malt to balance it out. The bitterness is harsh enough to make me miss Pliny and take away a lot of the drinkability in an otherwise very quaffable DIPA.

Nice to see another Pacific NW brewer here in the triad of North Carolina.Poured into an imperial pint glass a clear copper/brass color with a thin but well defined white head that left broken laayers of lace as it settled quickly.Herbal hop notes mainly in the nose with a bit of caramel,flavors are sharp and herbal up front not much citirc hop,wich kinda surprised me,a hefty caramel base holds well.A more herbal hopped IPA but its quality,I like resiny,and citric flavors but this was pretty good.

I had this at Red Bones during the NW Fest on 11/09/10

Appearance: Light orangey brown. Light lacing, not too much carbonation activity.

Aroma: Very orange and malty for the style. Not a lot of hop bitterness expected from the nose on this one.

Taste: Wow, this one does bring a citrus rind bitterness into the fold, but that is after an initial burst of orange flesh sweetness. Nice balance, but could stand to be a bit more hoppy up front to balance out the initial sweetness.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: High. Nice balanced flavors and a very light, drinkable body. Its lack of oppressive bitterness increases the drinkability of this one.

Overall: This really doesn't seem to be a double or imperial to me. Yes, it is close to 8%, but its body, flavor, and drinkability all suggest something in a regular IPA area. I liked this beer and think it would be great for almost any occasion.

I disagree with reviews that say this is not an IPA-- I'm sitting here with the aftertaste of bitter hop, and it most definitely is a double IPA in my humble opinion!

I'm visiting the Seattle area and found a bomber of this in a local grocery store. I was happy when I opened the bottle and could smell piney hops. Unfortunately I could only pour into a plastic cup (hotel room!), but it poured beautifully-- light foam and bubbles, which did dissipate somewhat as I drank. However, it even left a bit of a lace on the plastic cup!

Loved the taste of this brew. Not overly citrusy or bright; instead, malt balanced with hops, although absolutely leaning on the hop side. I would guess this beer would be around 70-80 IBUs.

I could drink another one!

3.8/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Rich nose full of hoppy grapefruit rind and orange juice (and I mean that in the best possible way) combined with some slight boozy alcohol notes in the background. There's also a follow up presence of rich bread dough and a slight detection of molasses. The molasses was not at all suspected, but I think the malt and alcohol are combing to create this effect. Something I haven't found in an Imperial IPA before. Nice aroma.

Appearance: Light amber to copper body with a thin white head that forms with a moderate pour. Slightly hazy likely from heavy hopping, or a chill haze. Moderate lacing follows the glass down.

Flavor: Alcohol seems to hit the palate first quickly followed by fresh cut grass jammed in a blender with a heavy handful of grapefruit rind hop flavor. Malt begins to back this up with some melanoidin character toward the middle. Sweet as well at the midpoint. Finish is surprisingly crisp and dry with only a mild amount of lingering malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Hops fade quickly in the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with light carbonation. Alcohol warms up the palate throughout while the hops provide a light to moderate amount of sting at the back of the throat. Not quite what you'd expect or hope for with a Double IPA, but there certainly is a hop bite at the back of the throat.

Overall: The aroma of this beer is excellent, maybe even outstanding. Rich hop character is all over the map for the Northwest IPA style and that molasses is quite unexpected. I shouldn't say it's an overpowering molasses aroma, it's not, but if you take just a moment to think about what you're smelling, you'll pick up on aroma's found in some Baltic Porter's or Oatmeal Stout's. The flavor doesn't quite follow through however. It seems the hops fight with the alcohol for dominance, and the alcohol probably wins by a nose. The bitterness falls a little flat in the end. I would like to see it carry through with a little more "Industrial" punch.

Poured from a growler I just picked up at the brewpub into my Diamond Knot pint glass.

Appearance: rich, crystal-clear orange color with two fingers of ivory head atop. Looks good to me.

Smell: hops have a little citrus and a ton of earthiness. I like a good earthy IPA, so this appeals to me.

Taste: quite sweet, actually. The malt is a little sweet and toasty and hops are floral, earthy and citrusy with a bit of emphasis on floral characteristics. In fact, I'm reminded a bit of an over-brewed jasmine tea. None of this is bad, though, and the overall effect is pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a medium-low level of carbonation. Feel is OK, but not spectacular.

Drinkability: it's quite tasty and quaffable for a brew with a relatively high ABV. I could probably get myself into trouble with these.

22 oz. gem located at By the Bottle, Vancouver, WA, poured into Piraat tulip 4.17.10. Thanks to the BtB owners for bringing this down from Seattle to greater Beervana area.

One finger semi-rocky white head, medium-slow dissipation with nice lacing. Copper read cloudy body (unfiltered?), nice trail of carbonation rising from bottom of glass. Huge hop hit in the nose, citrus, grapefruit, some caramel malt for balance, finish is hop forward certainly bitter on the backend but not overly bitter, a fine tasting DIPA. Mouthfeel is medium, good effervescence. Extremely drinkable. One of the PNW best DIPAs, glad to see this in bottles. IMO this is the closest I've seen anyone come to replicating flavor profile of Alesmith IPA, which is certainly high praise. Well worth seeking out, certainly worth a trip across the river for Beervana-based hopheads.

Many thanks to Beertunes (Terry) for the opportunity to try this one again.

The beer pours a fairly dark amber color with pretty decent head retention and good lacing. At the outset, the first thing one notices is that this is pretty dark for an IPA. On the nose, there is a fairly pronounced citrus and pepper aroma, coupled with some noticeable malty sweetness. That malty sweetness comes on strong on the palate, though it's cut pretty nicely by a considerable hop bite in the finish. The combination of sweet malt and hoppy bitterness imparts some interesting flavors, consisting of cherry, orange, brown sugar and light chocolate. The bitterness really takes over in this medium bodied IPA, and drinkability is pretty decent. However, there's a bit of an alchol bite in the finish, which detracts just a bit from the beer's drinkability.

All and all, this is a nice enough beer, though it's not very IPA-like (in my book). Also, I've had this beer on draft a number of times at the 74th Street Alehouse in Seattle, and my impression is that this beer is considerable better on tap. Cheers!

So they used to have an Industrial ESB, eh? That's interesting, 'cos I could have mistaken this for an Imperial ESB in the PNW vein if I was tasting this blind. Thanks, John!

The pour is deep ruby red with decent clarity and a thin, spotty white head with OK retention and lacing. This is way to dark for an IPA (and don't get me started on black IPAs).
The nose has plenty of hops with citrus and a definite pine/ fir like character, not unlike what I expect mountain forests to smell like. Perfumey with a touch of earthy, leafy and minty character, the malt is moderately noticeable with a caramel and toffee character wit some honey. Not really an IPA, this is more like an overly hopped ESB. Mildly fruity, this smells great!
The palate opens with plenty of hop bitterness and moderate hop flavor as well, with citrus (grapefruit and grapefruit zest and orange). Malt flavors are present with caramel, an almost toffee like character with a touch of nuttiness, but the sweetness is low (and thankfully). Drying on the finish with a prominent bitterness with a mildly earthy character, this beer is medium light in body with a medium level of carbonation. With a solid finish, this is enjoyable stuff, one I would drink more if it were local.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a deep golden amber with a slight reddish tint. A very thick and full head was just off-white and had very good retention and lacing.

The smell is very hop forward, with pine notes most noticeable. There is just a hint of malt sweetness on the nose to provide some balance. The flavors follow the template made by the aromas, with some citrus hop flavors combining nicely with the pine.

The body is very good, solid and full without being heavy. Drinkability is well above average for a strong, hoppy brew. Overall, a very good brew by one of the PNW's lesser known gems. Worth some effort to try.
