A thick foamy head fills my snifter, leaving intricate lacing above a ruby body. Clean yet dense body.

Strong fruity west coast IPA hops with a good bready caramel malt. The malt is a bit stronger a bit more bready and thick than some of the other 7% ipa's from out west.

The flavors are just the mirror of the beer. Perfect citrus forward hops juice full of grape fruit, passion fruit, tangerines. the back is as i expected just a hair above what some of the other west coast IPAs do, still far far far from the likes of an east coast malt bomb and unquestionably west coast great!

Drinks like a 7% ipa that tastes amazing.

I highly recommend this one. It's a bit expensive coming in at 6 bucks for a bomber (cheap by bomber standards but who buys non imperial IPAs in bombers?). I can't see getting this often due to the price and I haven't looked too hard as this just appeared here, but I can't find a bottled on date so this might be a once and done.

Om the dark side of amber. Good white head very good amount of lacing. Smell is floral hops some biscuit malts.
Taste is floral hops some pine resin and some caramel malts.
Mouthfeel is just right with good carbonation and a medium dry finish.
Overall a nice to excellent IPA. Leans slightly toward the malt side for the style but very tasty indeed.

Pours a darker than normal copper, clear, with a thin white head. Not much lacing to speak of. Slightly off style. Lots of pine with grapefruit and a hint of tropical fruit round out the hop aroma. I also get some well baked biscuit and thick caramel behind the hops. The malt profile really sticks out with this IPA. Lemon and some grapefruit accompany white bread crust flavors, fading to overcooked bread/biscuit and crispy cracker. There's a hint of caramel, or at least caramelized sugar. The bitterness is piney and biting. It reminds me of sap or pitch. Read: it's strong. But it kinda goes with the malt. It is reminiscent of the outdoors if you feel romantic about this brew. The feel is viscous, but only slightly so, and the finish is dry.

I like the idea behind this. It's like the Estate Ale by Sierra Nevada, but it's more hop forward. I'd like this again, but not often. It's an interesting IPA.

I had this one on tap on the Brooklyn Oyster house in Seattle.

Served in a shaker, the beer is a dark copper with a slight chill haze. It has a big dense beige head. It has really nice lacing.

Citrus and pine on the nose. Big and inviting.

Taste is bitter but balanced by lots of caramel malts. Citrus, pine and a hint of fruit. Slight mineral taste in the finish.

The mouth is slightly oily and coating.

It was an easy drinker, glad to see it on tap.

The PNW knows how to do IPA's. Sometimes it can be a bit overdone and I think this one is. Their website states a "lingering hop finish" I agree but I would insert Strong before hop. Up front it is a good beer but I am just not accustomed to chewing a hop at the end. I can understand how one could get addicted to this taste though. I will buy it again and give it a second drive around the block.

A: Pours a lightly hazy deep copper in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the surface and a hint of dark golden yellow + orange highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy sudsy light tan head which slowly reduces to a couple of medium thick patches, a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pine, herbal, and citrus/grapefruit pith hops over a light amount of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with a fair amount of sweetness which is quickly overtaken by strong flavors of the hops - pine stands out with slightly lesser amounts of herbal and citrus/grapefruit pith. Moderate to heavy amounts of bitterness which lingers for a long time.

M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of lingering dryness in the finish.

O: For me, this is just on the border of a IPA and a DIPA - probably would be more highly rated if it was a more well known brewery. I find this one to be really enjoyable and pairs quite nicely with spicy foods.
