Poured from a longneck into a shaker. The chunky, billowy head slowly descends, leaving sticky remnants along the sides of the glass. The beer is a pale amber color with medium carbonation.

Nothing overpowering in the aroma, with mainly light pine and floral notes. The flavor brings out the citrus a bit more, and results in an addition of lemony-grassy notes to mesh with some pine and grapefruit pith. The malt backbone is substantial and includes some molasses and dark bread notes with a hint of chewing tobacco now and then- especially at first. As the beer progresses, some distinctly melon-like notes present themselves. The ABV seems well hidden, but probably enhances the other flavors and adds a spicy bite.

In my opinion, the bitterness (115 IBUs) balances the substantial malt base quite well, and it has all the characteristics of a big beer with very well-meshed and unique flavors. Borderline excellent, in my humble opinion, but may not satisfy the more extreme hopheads out there.

just a run-of-the-mill IPA. I don't have much going on in the smell department. It looks nice enough a fairly dark amber. Really does not leave me very happy. It's not very hoppy, kind of flat, it tastes a bit like straw and mild hops obscured by a little malt in a little bit of nothing. I'm not very excited by this. I expect my Imperial IPA to be huge and bold. Just leaves me wishing I had a different IPA. it's nice enough to drink it feels good on the tongue a little sparkly little bubbly but it's just not enough hops for me. big alcohol does not equal a good beer and I believe that is what these people are going for here, just big alcohol. Perhaps the Spokane desert is frying their brains. I would much rather take a lagunitas any day at two thirds the price.
