I love this beer. This is one of my favorite DIPA's. The beer goes down very smooth, but you get a strong hop flavor as well. It is like melding the best of both worlds. An easy to drink, hop heavy beer. Whenever bombers of this beer come in to my local beer store, I am down there buying it ASAP. I just prefer to drink this beer whenever I can. This is everything a west coast DIPA should be.

Vibrant cloudy coppery-orange with a dense white head. Sweet, citrus fruit smell with some sugary malts. Very pleasant and aromatic, almost floral. Grapefruit, orange, brown sugar and raisins in the taste. A really good blend of sweet and acidic, almost like a fruit cocktail. Very smooth with no hint of alcohol even though it is 9.5%. Drinkability is limited only by ABV and bottle size.

On a tour of HUB we got to try a glass of this awesome DIPA directly from the source, fresh as it gets.
A - Slightly cloudy orange tinted, fair head.
S - strong bouquet of citrusy hops, slight malt sweetness to the smell as well.
T - One of the best imperial IPA's I have had. Well balanced, complex, very hoppy as expected, smooth.
M - Well carbonated, medium/heavy bodied.
I will seek this beer out anytime I am in Oregon. Bonus that its organic.

Review from 3/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a rich medium red orange amber. Nice color. Light head and lacing. Intense hop aroma with light fruit and malt. Pleasant medium body with sweet malt, grapefruit, light and dark fruit, a hint of caramel and like the aroma, intense floral hops. The base approaches a barley wine. Nice intense bitter aromatic hop finish. Well made and enjoyable. An absolute must buy each year.

This ale appears light orange with a two inch off colored white head that dissipates quickly.
It smells like a big bag of dank bud. There is a potent tropical fruit/ pineapple smell. It smells dank and slightly skunky but not in a bad way. There is a subdued caramel sweetness. I could sit here and smell this beer all day and night.
It tastes very fruity: there are hints of orange, pineapple, and other tropical fruit. There is a pleasant mild sweetness that comes with the fruity flavor. There is also a bud like dankness to the beer as well. All of these unique flavors lead to a palate wrecking bitterness. The bitterness however is not one dimensional. Traces of the citrus fruity flavor linger with the bitterness quite well. I am really digging this IIPA. The bitter citrusy dank flavor lingers for awhile on the palate. It is quite complex ale.
The carbonation is moderate low. It has a really nice mouthfeel that adds smoothness to the beer.
Though the alcohol is quite high this is very drinkable though it is very much so a sipper. It is one of the most complex IIPAs I have had for a while.
Though I have like most of the stuff I have had from HUB this beer gave me a new respect for HUB.
