A big robust DIPA with a deep amber/orange body, and a white clingy head. Today, the smell is of sparkling grapefruit, some juicy fruit, and honey. The taste is a rich, magnificent tropical fruit, grapefruit, hops, and pine. The mouthfeel is just right.

Overall, this is a nice notch up from the Workhorse IPA. The Workhorse is outstanding, and this is just as good. The Workhorse IPA is cute and pretty. This is her big sister, sexy, voluptuous, and robust.

A new favorite DIPA of mine from the growing lineup of the Pacific Northwest.

22 ounce bottle poured into a large mug. Bottle date is 8-20-14. I hope that's the bottled on date, not the best by.

Pours slightly cloudy amber brown with a small paddle head and a medium amount of slow fine carbonation. Smell is quite nice, grassy and fresh, slight pine, significantly floral, slight citrus.

Taste is slight caramel or toffee, not an overpowering hop presence but certainly noticeable. Slow, moderately bitter finish. Slight citrus sweetness, stronger citrus zest bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little chewy, a little sticky. Overall, very nice beer.

Poured dark orange from a growler purchased at a local establishment. Very hop forward beer with a fair amount of malt. Still very well balanced! Two thumbs up!

Sweet and fruity in an appealing way. Handsome clear orangey color in the Affligem chalice. Modest foam but spritzy and tangy in the mouth.

Flavors of browned biscuits and orange marmalade. Mango is the big fruit flavor. Not excruciatingly bitter overall, but rather bitter aftertaste. Drier finish. On the acidic side.

A massive amount of flavor that lends itself to careful sipping. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen's Market in Burlington, Wash.
