Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grass and pine notes from the hops, as well as some biscuit and a bit of tea. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of bitter grass notes, as well as some pine and toffee. There is a decent amount of biscuit and toffee malt to keep the beer from being too bitter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bomber served cold in pint glass. Beer pours orange with a slight haze and a small off white head. Really nice aroma of pine and citrus C-hops that promises an flavorful but not overpowering IPA.
Flavor is a little bit more aggressive: Cascade is up front, but plays well with other hops. Finish is dry without suffering from hop burnout much. Well balanced with the grain bill. I wholeheartedly concur with the label: this is an unashamed NW IPA.
Overall I am really impressed with this second offering in this year's Manic IPA series.

Received from Lordkrystic , along with a ton of others in a monster box, many thanks!
A - a very inviting orange and gold with a two finger slightly off white head that hangs for a bit but then dies down to a ring of lace that will follow the liquid down the glass
S - some citrus hop, but nothing too powerful, a good bit of the biscuit malt with some more floral hops as well
T - a very subdued hop bite , maybe just a nibble, followed by a bit of sweetness that quickly makes its way back to a fairly mild orangey bitterness
O - Really tasty but a bit too subdued, nothing went pop or pow! Overall it was a very balanced and easy to drink IPA with some real potential that its just not quite reaching. Good beer but not great beer.

A: Poured from the bomber into a pint glass. Body is ever-so-slightly hazed honey-amber with a small whitish head. Leaves solid lacing behind.
S: Nice nose - mainly juicy citrus but with a touch of sweet malt underneath.
T: Surprised by the malt bill on this one - lots of caramel malt/toffee sweetness. Finishes with juicy citrusy hops - think orange & grapefruit - some apricot as well. Lingering bitterness is cut by the juicy hops and sweeter malt. Nice balance, though this one "feels" more like a DIPA (reminds me of DFH 90 Minute somewhat) than a straight IPA.
M: Medium in heft, maybe a little heavier than that. Carbonation is modest, giving it a bit of an oily or slick feel.
O: Good stuff. Like I said, feels bigger than your average IPA, I believe due to the generous amount of malt used here (or at least the impression thereof).

Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Clear, dark orange color. Two fingers of off-white, creamy/frothy head. Retention is about average and plenty of lacint is left.
4.0 S: Citrusy and earthy hoppiness. Lots of orange and papaya with pineapple and some grapefuit underneath. Caramel from the malts with a light, clean breadiness and moderate neutral malt sweetness. Great balance between the hops and malts. Very nice.
4.5 T: Like the nose, this is a well balanced, sophisticated IPA. The hops don't slap you silly and they don't need to. Mild bitterness. Orange and papaya are strongest. Pineapple, apple, grapefuit, and earthiness secondary. Again a solid caramel backbone with a light breadiness and some balancing neutral sweetness. Clean and refreshing.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A little low on creaminess, but it's not a big deal.
4.0 D: Tasty brew that will appeal to those who like a little malt in their IPAs.
