2012 22oz bottling. Bottled 3/27/2012.
A - Pours an inch of creamy white head. The head has nice retention and leaves copious lacing. The beer is clear with a golden-orange hue.
S - The aroma is full of hops. Floral aromas stand out the most, but there is also a little cit of grapefruit, and citrus present. There is also a very subtle sweetness.
M - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. The beer has a creamy finish and the hops oils coat the inside of your mouth.
T - The taste has a strong floral hop component up front. It then imparts a grapefruit flavor and bitterness along with a tiny notes of citrus. There is a little alcohol burn, but overall it's nicely hidden. No real malt character to speak of. There is a medium bitterness in the finish.
Quite a good beer, and much different than your typical citrusy imperial IPAs. I applaud Laurelwood for this beer, but wish they would bring back their Work Horse IPA.

Fabulous aroma of big flowery hops with a spicy scent and a touch of honeysuckle. Attractive appearance with orangey amber color and a lively head in the Pilsner glass. Lots of foam and lacing, and sudsy mouthfeel.
Lots of sweet malt but more thin and sharp. This is plenty bitter to start, and it increases to a crescendo. Serious mango tang with the burnt pineapple note. Big blast of hops. This gets pretty acidic after some sipping. Starts out sweet, but has a harsh aftertaste.
This batch is pegged at 9 percent. Sippable for the intense hop flavor, but not one to merrily gulp. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Malt & Vine in Redmond.
