12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear, dark gold color with a dense cap of off-white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

Nose is piney with some alcohol peeking through. malts are fairly deep with caramel and toast.

Taste is much smoother than the aroma would indicate with pine sap and toast leading the way. Alcohol more integrated and goes down smooth. Its not bad, but there are plenty of better DIPAs out there. It feels old school, with a more traditional PacNW hop schedule than many of the newer versions of this style.

Handsome amber brew with ample foam in the snifter. Sudsy and a little sharp on the tongue with hoppy acidity. Big fruity aroma of orange blossoms, lime peel, and fermenting pineapple. Some alcohol presence that gives it a mixed drink taste.

This is plenty sweet with malt. The hops are a welcome balance to all that malt. It's like orange marmalade with the bitterness finally coming across for the flavor. Mango and really sweet orange with a touch of cocktail bitters makes it even more interesting.

Another tasty Northwest DIPA. This is sweeter and fruitier, and more like a liqueur. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.
