This beer is brewed by Maritime Pacific exclusivley for the Dog and Pony Alehouse in Renton, it is their "house" beer.

This beer pours a slighly hazy orange color, with a foamy off white head. Smell is of intense piney hops, the aroma fills the whole room. This beer has a sharp bitterness and piney hop flavor. It is balanced with some sweet malt but is definatley towards the hops. Aftertaste is endless hops. This beer is medium bodied and quite a refreshing drink. It's alcohol content is well buried in the other flavors.

Pint at the Dog & Pony

Big citrus hop aroma right off and a grape nuts like grainy malt underneath.

Golden colored and totally clear. Pours with a half inch thick solid white layer of foam that fades to a small ring and broken island of wispy whit bubbles. Leaves good lacing. There is just a little line of rising bubbles from the bottom of the glass.

Tons of citrus hop flavor and really high bitterness. Lemon and Grapefruit. That dominates the flavor profile. There is some malty sweetness there but you have to be looking for it. The aftertaste is more citrus hops. So there's no yeast character that gets through the hops.

Medium bodied and kind of light on the carbonation.

Drinkability....if you like hop bombs, yeah.

Served in a shaker pint at the Dog & Pony, their Double Dry-hopped Imperial IPA is a hazy gold with a fluffy white head that leaves scattered lace. I prefer a paler IPA, so that's a plus, and the head is pretty good for draught.

Smell is malty, some iced tea like crystal, accentuated by the citrusy hops, which aren't too strong.

Taste is similar, decent maltiness, citrus hops that aren't quite fresh. Being the house beer for a beer bar with a big selection of taps in constant turn-over, and with a well educated local crowd, I'll bet this doesn't get ordered a ton, and is probably a few weeks old. Still, not bad for a bready, malty, citrusy DIPA. Lacking pungency, but smooth at least.

Mouthfeel is softly carbonated, smooth, and medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good. I like my IPAs, let alone DIPAs, to be really in your face with the hop flavor, which this one isn't, but it's not to bitter, malty or boozy either. So maybe was when fresher, and lacks the other attributes I normally find overdone in the style. As it is, is a tasty, smooth, easy drinking, if a bit strong IPA. Washed down there tasty nacho's quite well!

This one was available, cask conditioned, at the Elk Public House. Pours a nice amber copper color and is cloudy. Loose bubbly had forms and is resilient. The head produces nice lacing.

The smell is pleasant and not overpowering. It;s fruity, citrusy, with a bit of a dill aroma.

The taste is of sweeter citrus fruits upfront, oranges and lemons, with some sweet malts. The aftertaste is bitter citrus like grapefruit.

The mouthfeel is very smooth and buttery.

This is a very drinkable beer, but for the higher ABV. Although not particularly sessionable, a very good brew in moderation.
