Thin and a little harsh. I still think this is an imperial PALE ALE, and not an IPA. Dark amber, plenty of spritz, and just a wisp of head.

Some faint malt. Tastes the way straw smells. Flat and one-dimensional. Not all that bitter, but the aftertaste is definitely bitter. A little of the biscuit taste, but more herbal tea.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at New Seasons Market in Portland.

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.
