Pours a typical IPA colour. The smell was pretty hop-potent, had me ready for a hop bomb. Alas, it was not to be. The hop flavour is mild, dominated by fruit of the tropical variety, mostly mango. A little pineapple-melon-grapefruit melange as well, but very soft and mild. The thing that I found the most disappointing was the finish. It didn't linger at all, it wasn't dry, it wasn't anything: there was just nothing there. For an Imperial/Double IPA that is just unacceptable in my opinion. The impression I was left with was that it sacrificed flavour for drinkability, which is fine, except that they scaled it back too far. At some point when you scale it back it ceases to be an IPA (never mind an 2xIPA), and unfortunately thats what I believe happened here. I want to clarify that there isn't any particular flavour I disliked, I just didn't think it stayed even remotely close to the style, which is why it will get a poor score from me.

22 oz bottle, no date.

appears a dark golden color, clear. big tall rocky off-white head. great retention. sort off-putting aroma - very lemon, like dish soap.
nice balance of biscuit malt and earthy lemony hops. but the nose overpowers the taste. medium thickness and medium carbonation.

overall - the bad aroma takes over the positives of this beer. I wouldn't try again

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Something of a distinctive Double India Pale Ale, this actually pours a yellowish-brown colour. Not a typical NW hop bomb as far as the nose goes. There's more in the way of sweet malt notes, but you can still find a touch of fruity hop scents in there as well. Similar on the palate--a lot of sweetness balanced with grassy, herbal hops and a massive finishing bitterness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Large fruity flavor mixed with the hop cone extravaganza. Flavors all muddled up and xxx. Lots of grapefruit but with a sweet mango taste. Quite bitter and it keeps stabbing the back of the tongue. Some of the biscuit taste, well browned and more bitterness. Aromatic with fruit and flowers.

More of a golden amber than the usual DIPA orange. Modest mustache of foam. Fairly thick bodied and seems tro be oilier than most. Resins, aromatic hops, and quinine. Hot and spicy on the lips. Not my idea of drinkable, but those seeking the dominatrix may find her here.

From the 22 oz bottle bought in Orange County somewhere. I'm not quite sure about this brewery but they seem to be putting out a lot of stuff.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a deep burnt amber with a medium white head, no lace.

S: Lots of pine, cedar and white grapefruit, classic NW hops.

T: Pine heavy with grapefruit and orange. Lots of hop character with some nice crystal malt flavour.

M: Medium to full-bodied. Oily and very resiny, intense.

O: A very good, but very northwest DIPA. I liked it quite a bit.
