Poured from tap at brewery.

A - deep, burnished copper hue, good head, very nice.

S - It's like a super IPA! Lot's of hops, a little dry-ish, a little green-ish; come citrus, toast, and pine

T - Great flavor, very elegant yet rich with a harmony between all of those C-hops.

M - Balanced yet could have used a touch more alcohol or body, tannins and acids are well in check.

D - Very good and very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at Jake’s Famous Crawfish, Portland

Deep amber with film of white.
Candied orange and resin nose.
Peach and toffee backbone with firm lemon, herbal, resin, and spruce hop notes.
Flowery comeback and gently bitter linger.
Medium, round, silky.

Two cuts above. Super smooth, incredibly balanced, both IBUs and aroma are there but with a measured touch.
Is it really a DIPA? Is it 100 IBUs? Do I care? Lovely beer.

Poured fro a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant, slightly hazed, caramel coloring with a thin, filmy, clingy, bright white surface coat of head. Aromas of roasted caramel, tangy sweet mango, passion fruit, and pineapple, and resiny, floral hops. Smells like a sweet, tangy explosion. Flavors of tangy sweet tropical fruits initially, with a blending of mango and pineapple most apparent. Roasted undertone, with a hoppy blend of pepper and oregano cleaning things up a bit. Malty, with a robust blast from every aspect on the palate. No pulled punches in this brew. I would love to see what this beer would be like fresh-hopped. The aftertaste is tangy sweet and smooth, with a slick, smooth, clean finish. The palate becomes very balanced with rich sweetness and light, citrus tart at the end of the brew. Great beer, very easy to drink.

A friend sent this 22oz from SoCal.
Poured in a St Bernardus chalice.
Small brown head ... some lace.
Aroma of citrus hops and herbal spice.
Flavors of citrusy hops, white pepper, burnt malts, funky tropical fruit rind, grapefruit rind. Flavorful and bold in the hops but many flavors that are not as inviting, such as astringency and funky water flavors.
