This poured dark copper with a fluffy white head.

The aromatics are amazing. Dank piney hops w/grapefruit floating about. Loads of depth & power.

This is pitch perfect DIPA. Bitter citrus & a light, crisp malt backbone.

A big beer, but crisp & drinkable. Easy to drink & easy to love. Dry finish which brings you right back to the glass. No heaviness or oily textures.

Amazing stuff. Lives on the same block as Pliny, Hop Venom, Sucks etc. Would love to drink all year long.

This is one that I NEVER thought I would have seen without a trip to PDX... Instead it was enjoyed 4-5 times tonight at the 10 Barrel IPA fight/fest.

Pours a light orangish with a tight white head.

This is one of the most hop forward beers I have ever had and still is a "bit" balanced... tons of tropical fruits and huge citrus zest... tangerine/red grapefruit.... and hints of pine on the finish.

Lighter than should be body... carbonation is nice.

For 9+% this is a teddy bear... drinkability is off the charts... super beer for sure.

Notes from 4/10/2013, on tap at the Laurelwood Pub

A: Medium golden, high clarity, 1/4" head

S: Aromas start wafting my way as soon as the beer is set down. Tons of pineapple backed up with citrus and tropical fruit. Hints of lychee.

T: Intense juicy hops balancing peach and mango. Mild notes of pine resin.

M: Good carbonation, body just on the light side of medium. Modest bitterness. Dangerous drinkability.

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

Bottle opened on 7.12.13

A - Pours a hazy medium orange with a thick tan head with good retention and lacing.

S - Lots of pine, earthy, resin, heavy ripe oranges.

T - Still some pine, pineapple, melons, grass.

D - Good carbonation with a medium body, bitter finish.

O - This drinks pretty unique for a DIPA, lots of pine, grass, and pineapple, there is lots going on here. I think people are giving this one to much credit. Solid beer.
