I'll preface this by stating I'm not a DIPA/IIPA fan but I'm always willing to explore and see if I may find one that changes my mind. To be fair to the beer, I don't feel rating it anything less than 4 on taste would be appropriate considering this isn't one of my fav styles.

However, I do love the smell of a strong-hopped beer and this one didn't disappoint at all! Loved the piney, citrusy aromas that lingered until the last drop. Appearance and mouthfeel were nice as well. I'd think that if you were a DIPA connoisseur, you'd probably think this was a pretty decent option.

3.55/5  rDev -14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a two finger clingy lightly yellow-tanned head over a cloudy dark apricot liquid. Smells pink grapefruit, pine, pith, baby aspirin, and over-ripe oranges, orange sherbet. Tastes hop bitter just dominating over malt sweet, hop flavor, and fruity esters. Bitter is grassy rough edgy and mixed with mildly sharp carbonation and clean alcohol sting. Hop flavor is sharp pithy, drying grapefruit, and ends very earthy and dank. Esters are peach and guava. Md in the mouth and moderate carbonation. Over all drying and woody, not particularly enjoyable.

I've had this fine IPA a few times. The first time was on tap at the brewery. I liked it enough to get a growler the following week.

A great looking beer, white head, midas golden brown. Hoppy bitterness, with bitter sweet after. Not too heavy, like some double/triples....having seconds is no problem.

Great beer overall,

Served in a tulip, and than a Big Kahuna glass from Kona. Picked up at 99 Bottles in federal way, WA. This is a high volume IPA without sacrificing the taste. Loved the beer. Great hop coverage without being overbearing. Wonderful choice for lovers of a high ABV and IPA.

Northwest Brewing Co.- Crazy Bitch IIPA: not too bad, kinda like a nicer version of PtE.

Pours a hazy golden flax, a dutiful head of white holds on till it cannot anymore. Floral citrus aroma, crisp dry citrus palate, notes of honey and lime. Mouthfeel is crisp and unhindered, carbonation is medium-light, doesn't let the hop bitterness to linger on the back of the tongue (which is a plus for me). Overall a damn good drinking IIPA.

Smell is kind of floral but mostly dominated by citrus hops. Some grass like fresh hops too. Malt and Yeast don't really come through.

Golden and clear and poured with a nice thick white head. The head stays as a nice thin layer and leaves only a little lacing.

Super bitter. Lots and lots of Grapefruit hops. Bitter at the start, bitter on the finish, bitter citrus peel lingers in the aftertaste. In that way, its pretty one dimensional. Lots of bitterness, not much hop flavor, very little malt or yeast in there. It's a hop-bomb. It seems really clean fermentation with a ton of hops. Edit: in the last third of the glass when it warms up it's got a big pine hop flavor.

Given that the girl behind the bar said it's a dIPA but didn't know the ABV, it seem pretty thin for the style. It has the body of a regular pale or IPA. There's not noticeable alcohol strength either.

It's lacking something. Maybe more malt flavor would make it more interesting or more in the tun would bring up the body? Honestly though, it's one of their better beers.
