A: A beautiful golden body but even with a rough pour there was a very small/nearly nonexistent head.

S: Very interesting. It has a blended caramel bitterness to it. There is sweet caramel with pine and grapefruit.

T: Hop on the front and back ends of this beer. There is grapefruit in the beginning followed by a rich caramel sweetness. The finish is a very piny hop.

M: Nice heavy body but it is lacking in carbonation.

O: A good IPA. Not worth seeking out but worth a try if you see it on a shelf.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a two finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of pine and slightly skunky hops, light caramel malt and citrus, somewhat subdued. Flavor follows, but more assertive, fresh tasting pine and citrus hops well melded to a caramel malt body, pleasant citrus notes. Finishes with citrus and long lasting pine and herbal hops bitterness. Medium bodied with some creaminess. A classic, well made Northwest style IPA, great balance and complexity to the hops. Really glad to have finally snagged a bottle of this, which usually doesn't get too far from its home in Bellingham.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a clear amber w/ a big fluffy off-white head, some thin film of lace. Lazy carbonation.

Aroma is big pine and citrus, some earthy tropical notes. Dank.

Taste follows nose. Heavy on the grapefruit and pine, with some heavier tropical flavors in the background. Malt bill is a blend of caramel and pale malts. Alcohol is not entirely masked, but in no way dominant. Just a little boozy heat comes with the swallow. Powerfully bitter on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, almost heavy. Oily, slightly chewy.

Overall a big, agressive DIPA that manages to pull off a pretty good balance.

A: Poured a slightly hazy orange/ruby color with a small off-white head on top. Decent retention with thin lacing down the sides.

S: Nice citrus aroma, with some deeper tropical fruit as it warms. A bit of pineapple and grapefruit. Slightly sweet with a bit of caramel.

T: Similar to the aroma, some tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, a bit of orange mixed with some malty sweetness, a surprising amount.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A nice DIPA, was hoping for just a bit more out of it, but would certainly drink it again.
