4.09/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a murky orange under a thin off-white head that fades to a thin ring fairly quick, legs cling to the sides all over, light spattering of lace.

Peach nectar jumps out of the snifter first. Then honey, hints of melon, a touch of pine, followed by mango, passionfruit, grapefruit pith, and hop candy. Sweet malt and bread in the background. As it warms there are berries and a touch of cat pee.

Mango and citrus pith hit the tongue first, followed by melons, pear, and honey. Passionfruit sneaks in too with a touch of floral hoppiness. Light maltiness under the hops giving way to a lingering bitter finish and spicy alcohol.

Medium to full body is slightly creamy and chewy. Finish is semi-sweet with a bitter finish cleansing the palate. Warming alcohol and mild carbonation.

This is a complex hop monster. Decent malt backbone for the hops to play on, but a tad chewy, might want to replace some of the malt with sugar to thin the body down a little. Beer is clean, no off flavors, no high alcohols, lots of hop goodness.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Slight chill haze on an otherwise clear beer. A honeyed golden-orange with a creamy off-white head. Decent retention leaves a small creamy cap with some nice streaks and notches of lacing.

Smell: Chewy cereal grains. A solid caramelized malt sweetness. A hint of some darker sugars, but it sticks close to caramel. Nice bready element hits some crust and a big biscuity component. Hops are a bit earthy and herbal with a solid sticky pine and some citrus. Grapefruit rind and pith. A touch of lingering bitterness. Definitely malty. A bit of pine needle bitterness through the back. Everything is well balanced. Some pineapple and soft peach.

Taste: A solid lingering bitter pine needle. Pithy bitterness. Layers of citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, pine, mango, with the grapefruit and pine dominating. Pineapple ramps up as it warms, as does a dirty earthy characteristic. Slightly herbal and floral on the back of each sip. Malts run big and sweet as a nice counterbalance to the hops. Deeply caramelized malts coupled with a slightly sweet biscuit dough and some brown bread. Floral element ups a bit with each sip. Alcohol runs through the back adding a bit of heat and some alcohol spicy esters.

Mouthfeel: Medium creamy body. A moderate carbonation and a clean finish. A bit thick for the style and could easily be syrupy with a bit more.

Overall: Significantly better than Tampax.

A decent D(T?)IPA. A bit heavy on the booze and just a bit too sweet. Definitely worth trying, but it won't be inregular rotation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The label calls this ΩTEX and it's a Double IPA. Current version is 9.9 percent. Brewer says it's made with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Summit Hops.

Attractive glazed amber color in the Gulpener tulip. Sudsy and mouth filling with a tangy edge.

Crazy sweet but a deep spicy and aromatic flavor. Lightly roasted malt is warm and friendly as the hoppy intensity spools up. Moderately bitter but exceptionally drinkable. Deep aroma of gardenias and mango. Hot with alcohol, but you came for the party, right?

This is really a sweet, sexy brew. I'm lovin' it. A real hop honeymoon. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a one finger ivory head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, particularly pineapple, citrus hops, a bit of caramel. Flavor dominated by citrus and tropical fruit flavored hops. I always knew that the pineapple flavors were coming from the hop bill in IPAs, but this is the first time I could detect the integration of the hop bitterness with the flavor, interesting. Caramel malt and citrus. Long, lingering, complex hop finish. Medium bodied with some creaminess, enhanced by a long lasting, creamy head. A very hop forward IIPA that has substantial malt support. Hop blend covers the territory with tropical, citrus, mild piney and some dank elements. Nice, but it's going to kill my taste buds for hops for a few days.
