Growler from ABV. Pouring a clear copper with a dense, off white head with excellent retention and very nice lacing, this looks great! The nose opens with a big blast of Cascade hops, citrus, chalky and moderately juicy. Candied grapefruit and citrus are present along with an intense pine oil aroma. Malt is moderate, caramel and bready in nature. The palate opens with an intense, pungent pinesol bitterness and flavor, massively resiny, immensely dank and hilariously over the top. Alcohol and sweetness are noticeable and add an intensity to the palate. Simple syrup, bread, caramel and a little burnt toast are noticeable. The mid palate has some of the citrus and fruit flavors with candied grapefruit, honeydew melon and orange peel. Mildly sweet and quite bitter on the finish, this beer is medium-full in body and softly carbonated. The booze, the bitterness and the sweetness make this a little difficult to drink a ton of. Decent stuff.

32oz growler, filled earlier today @ The Growler Run.
into a SN IPA Glass.

Pours a burnt orange with a foamy, off white head and spotty lacing.

Citrusy, resiny hops, light boozy notes from the alcohol in the taste.

A decent DIPA. Well done, but lacking anything particularly memorable about it.

Had this on tap at Uber Tavern Seattle. Funny thing...this a wallop of a beer. Big, bright, huge aroma and flavor...but it was enjoyed as a session beer Yep...that's right. A real quaffer.
It started with the mouth feel. There was a huge flavor profile, but the very smooth drinkable carbonation melded with a full malt backbone...well, let's say it was a rich, satisfying drink. Granted, sitting in Uber with the fire pit and a cool, rainy night outside...it was a nice for contemplation and sipping. But in fact I was on Beer Safari with 3 bros, and everything was upbeat and let's do more, more, more...
the appearance is a rich yellow/amber with a smooth head, followed by righteous lacing. Aroma is full hoppy-ness, fresh and bright. Flavor rolls with citrus, slight mellow caramel, maybe a touch of banana. The mouth feel is sinful. Sinful! Soft, luxuriant...inviting....
Damn, I'm poppin down a full octane beer, but it seems like I'm sippin on a perfectly poured Brit Pale Ale.
Let's face it... there are many, many excellent IPAs...but not unlike PTY, this one stands out for the drinkability above and beyond the great flavor.
Hope you're lucky enough to have one poured on tap for you>
