Bottle served in a tulip. Pours an orange copper color with little head. The taste up front is slightly malty with a bitter finish. Nose is a little understated for a wet hop. Not sure but it could be getting stale.

500ml bottle - not sure that this is a DIPA at 7.6% ABV, especially as the label (and thus brewery) don't claim it as such.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat chunky beige head, which leaves some decent splattered snow rime lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of gritty pale and caramel malt, sugary mint, muddled citrus zest, and mixed herbal, leafy, and pine hop astringencies. The taste is more grainy, kind of bready caramel malt, orange and white grapefruit rind, a further subtle tropical fruitiness, still active herbal mint notes, and some level earthy, weedy, floral, and piney hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly understated in their generic and kind of pandering frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and mostly smooth, just a touch of burbling alcohol starting to tug away at things. It finishes off-dry, the base caramel gaining a mild meaty character, while that leafy mint thing trundles on, and the other 'fresh' hop players put 'er in neutral.

More fresh-hopped beer, more unusual taste and aroma profiles, ok, so be it. Interesting enough, I suppose, what with the herbal/mint essence pushing to the forefront, but, like with pumpkin beers this time of year, I'm starting to yen for the 'regular' version of the styles I've come to know and love. Enter, over the top holiday brews.

Purchased a growler this afternoon at the brewery. Pours a pretty orange-amber color topped by a lively white head that has some staying power and leaves a pretty white lacing on the glass. Aroma of dank, wet hops, with some specific citrus (grapefruit) and cannabis notes. I almost feel like I could get a contact high from the aroma.
Palate is very hop-forward, with grapefruit, cannabis, and pine notes throughout. On the swallow a bit of caramel malt emerges, but is quickly overshadowed by the hoppy onslaught. Finish is a lasting, citrusy bitterness. Body is full enough to withstand the intense pressure put on it by the strong flavors, but responds favorably. If you're looking for a punch in the mouth from the humulus lupus plant, this is it. Super strong, super assertive, but still approachable, this is an amazing example of a fresh hop beer that can only be made in the northwest.

on-tap, bottleworks

appearance: served in a shaker pint, clear amber-orange body, filmy white head with a sticky lace

smell: earthy green hops, grain, grassy

taste: grassy earthy hops - just not a lot of depth which seems to be consistent with the other double mountain hop-forward beers i've sampled. Grain, rustic malt, roasted vegetables. Not of the finer fresh hop brews of the season

mouthfeel: oily and slick

overall: average

Just had on tap at Bottles NW in NE PDX! Why this is labeled a double I do not know! Double hops maybe?

- Clear amber brew with a big fizzling white fluffy head.. leaves a nice thin pancake on top... clear... light copper....

- Robust grain, malt, caramel... an earthy grassy floral hop hit to the face...

- Overall very balanced... super balanced, and dangerous. Caramel malts, grain, lightly sweetened Jesus juice... nice grassy, floral, and citrus hops melt to perfect this nectar.

- Overall medium bodied... maybe a bit more light... creamy, sweet, syrupy, and robust.

- I am a fan, and could drink this until the point of just falling asleep. A very smooth sailing and balanced fresh hop brew.

Clear reddish gold with a huge long lasting white head and copious lace.
Smell is floral hops with a touch of bread malt.
Taste is fruity citrus hops with a large amount of bread crust malts making this easy drinking. The green or fresh hop aspect is very tasty but the bitterness is much less than the 96 IBU's on the bottle would suggest.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and a slightly wet and mildly bitter finish.
Overall a very tasty and interesting beer but lacks the Wow factor. This is the 2015 version which is 7.6% abv and 96 IBUs. Bottled on 9/22/15. About three weeks old.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber with a fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Nice aroma of orange family fruit, light tropical, citrus and herbal hops. Flavor is similar to aroma, with orange family citrus and rind, grassy, almost earthy hops, slightly herbal with hints of rosemary and mint. Nice long lasting minty herbal hop finish. Medium bodied. A nicely balanced IPA with the malt taking second place to the fresh hops, which have a different profile from the more standard NW 3-Cs hops. A nice change and nice blend of hop flavors. I liked this quite a bit. A consistently very good brewery.

Had on tap last night at the Double Mountain / Podnah's BBQ & Beer meatztravaganza. What an event!

Beer appears rather cloudy and on the darker side for a DIPA. Very slight amount of head, perhaps because this was poured from a pitcher.

Nose is nice and hoppy but not particularly outstanding. The keg was produced about 8 months ago which could inhibit the bouquet. Pleasant but not great.

Taste is smooth, with somewhat of a grassy aspect to it. Not unlike having a piece of dried straw in your mouth. Not unpleasant but different for a DIPA. The hops are certainly attenuated after sitting in the keg for so long.

Drinkability seems high. The beer is fairly smooth and easy drinking so I could easily see packing away a few pints without noticing.

Overall, very drinkable DIPA. Too bad it was not fresh, I bet if it was fresh the score would increase significantly.

500ml bottle bought from Lifesource in Salem OR $4.99 2014 7.5% alc. and a whopping 97 IBU Clear dark golden/orange coloured body with a great thick,rough and rocky off white head. Nice citrusy,pine like hops aromas dominate, there is a nice bit caramel malts but its hops we came for ! Taste more balanced with some toffeeish chewy malts ( almost English in style) poking up above the fresh citrus/spruce hops..its a battle all over the tongue! Nice solid mouthfeel//lovely long lasting fresh hop after taste. Lovely beer. But with the strong malts this is a Fresh Hop Imperial IPA!
