A: Pours out a very turgid raw honey body, dense in appearance. Slim ¾ head of eggshell white rises and then fades quickly leaving patchy froth along the edges.
S: Heavy on the malts, fresh baked molasses and ginger cookies, Graham crackers, baking bread. There is an undercurrent of medicinal hops, earthy, and tea-like.
T: Tea with milk and honey, lemon, pie crust, wheat crackers, dried pine needles, grapefruit jam.
M: Starts off moderately syrups, moves to chewey, fades with a slight slickness. Overall medium bodied.
O: A DIPA much more in the English fashion, which I wasn’t expecting from a brewery out west. Heavy handed on the malts, which makes it out of balance in a different direction. While the malt profile is distinct, I wish there had been more of a distinct hop presence and even and bit more direct bitterness to even everything out. But, certainly worth giving a shot.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
