pours a bright copper-orange into a bold amber with a subtle gold tint in the glass. one finger head that frothy, lightly coated lacing, both which stick around a while. slight haze.
smells like somebody dropped me in hops and pine cones. some evergreen shit here. overtones of a a sweet bread, almost like raisin. can slightly smell the higher alcohol content.
tastes hella piney and citrus-y. your basic american IPA with its own kick. just of a different nature, can't really place it. but this was compared to Stone IPA and Lazy Boy IPA on tap when i first had it, it kicked both the others teeth in and i never looked back. just a superior brew.
frothy on the mouthfeel. dry finish leaves a moist feel that cries for more.
my go-to bar beer anywhere in seattle that has it, namely my old neighborhood pub: a terrible beauty in west seattle.
taste holds up surprisingly well in a 24 oz. bottle compared to its god-tier on tap counterpart.

3.49/5 rDev -8.2%

Very attractive sudsy pour in the tall Maredsous goblet. Golden, orange tinted brew with a spritzy mouthfeel. Aroma is a little piney with a gardenia hint in the nose.
Big hops from start to finish. Plenty of bitterness. Toasty malt, a biscuity taste. The hops go through a shuffle of flavors, with the grilled mango and sweet tangerine being followed by the grapefruit peel. Very bitter finish. Not a bad IPA for sipping, but the pain versus pleasure ratio is somewhat lower than many.
From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington. On this newer packaging the label says 7.0 percent.

Very hazy orange with a two fingers of cream colored head that recedes rather soon leaving nice rings of lace.
Smell is mostly sweet malts. I can't pick out any hops aromas.
Taste is big time sweet malts with a light amount of hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation. Lightly bitter somewhat dry finish.
overall a middle of the road DIPA. Nothing bad about it just too many big competitors.
About 10 to 20% more hops would do it. With no date on the can I can't tell if the beer might be a bit old. If I see it on tap I will give it another try.
