Finally scored a small glass at APEX Portland.
This beer was so amazingly aromatic that I could have written a list of the aromatics while carrying the glass two feet from my nose!
Poured a deep, burnished copper hue with some haze. Lingering head that refused to give up.
Smells slightly of alcohol (not for the faint of heart), lots of hop oils, tangerine, lemon, orange peel, honey, pine, and spice. Seriously. So much going on in this bad boy.
Taste profile is good, just not as dramatic as the nose suggests. Alcohol really kicks you here. It's like a good fino sherry in that way. More hops and some toasty notes.
The texture is about as rich and luxurious as you could want in an IPA without being obscene. Alcohol is really the only detractor and it is a minor one.
Overall one of the best IPAs I have tasted, but it's big and bold. Oh, did you see it's really 18% abv? Yeah.
Worthy! Oh so Worthy!

Pours a deep clouded amber with just a thin ring of head around the top. The aroma is interesting. The aclohol esters are strong and sweet, balancing against a floral note. The big 18% ABV comes up loud in the taste, as well, dominating initially and fading out quickly. The remainder of the flavor is hard to describe. The bad is full and thick and smooth. This is one to sip and enjoy, if for no other reason than it retails $10 or more a bottle.
