look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a little confused as to the bottle size as it is labeled with "1 Pint 9.4 Fluid Ounces" which is 750ml, but this looks much larger than all of the other 750ml bottles I have. I've heard this is a 1 liter, which it definitely looks like. Green wax, flip-top.

anyways, that size bottle. . . into a 12oz snifter.

Pours a clear golden orange with light rising carbonation and an off-white quarter inch head. The head fades to a thin film with a frothy ring around the edge of the glass and great spotty lacing.

The aroma is of juicy tropical fruits with a caramel malt backing. There some faint pine notes as well. Really enjoyable.

The taste is of more tropical fruits from the hops with a pleasant malt backing. There is a light astringency in the finish that almost leads me to drop the score a little more, but I don't find it too distracting. There is a pleasant warming finish from the alcohol.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with with average carbonation. As it warms it does get a bit more boozy, though not too bad.

I was really unsure what to expect with the mediocre ratings this has received thus far, but I really enjoyed this. While I will say that there are definitely less expensive choices of equal value, this was still in my opinion a very well done DIPA. To each his own I suppose!

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium orange amber with a one finger fine white head with fantastic retention and lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, orange citrus and a hint of sweet malt. Taste is somewhat subdued compared to the aroma, dominated by sweet and caramel malt, citrus and pineapple hops, finishes with a long lasting hop bitterness that is not as intense as I was expecting from the aroma and start. Medium bodied with a hint of creaminess. I liked the malt backbone on this but would hope for a bit more hop forward flavor. A pleasant, easy to drink DIPA.

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.

I just missed this one when it was first released and I never thought I would have the chance to try it. My jaw dropped when I saw a bottles of a new release sitting on the shelf at John's Market in Portland.
Bottle dated 3.27.12 enjoyed on 4.2.12

A - Pours a clear, darker orange with a two finger light tan head that is foamy. Great retention and lacing.

S - Strong hop florals, grass and green leaves.

T - Earthy grass and leaves. No citrus, but it still tastes great.

D - Slight bitterness up font with good carbonation and an average medium body true to style.

O - A solid DIPA, No citrus flavors, but still it still won me over. This might be the beer that started my obsession and led me to BA through a internet search.

On tap at Laurelwood 51st/Sandy 3/21/12 release day, $4.50 for 12 oz. pour.

One finger white head, medium dissipation with good lacing over clear deep gold body, no visible carbonation. Citrus skunky nose, big dose of crystal malt which is also forward tastewise, some citrus, light tropical. Taste mirrors nose, leading to bracing bitter finish. Medium light mouthfeel, light effervescence. To be honest, I'd rather drink Workhorse.
