22 Oz bottle. No bottling info

Pours a not quite clear gold/orange body with an off white head. Minimal retention and lacing

Smell is mostly hop forward and somewhat astringent. Mostly pine, but there is a definite malt presence here too.

Taste follows with the astringent quality up front. I normally appreciate a bitter finish bit the bitterness lingers in the aftertaste a little too much.

Thin to medium feel

Overall; Meh...

Got this on close out at my local wine store. Knew nothing about it. Frankly wasn’t expecting much. Upon opening the bottle, I could smell very little to discern it from other brews. But on the first taste, I was pleasantly surprised by the full bodied feel. The dark amber hue of it’s appearance reminded me of the amber ales that I so enjoy. Having never tried this ale, I expected a hops explosion (which I don’t particularly like). However, Industrial IPA’s hops were well tempered. To me, it was like a well-bodied lager with a light hops undertone. Oddly enough, it finished in a bitter way that made me want to keep on drinking.

Overall, it was a lucky find. I will be back at the store tomorrow to hopefully clear them out of their close out inventory.

L) Pours a thick, dark, amber with a creamy off-white head. Good retention and lacing.

S) Nose is heavy on resinous hop notes, with a bit of yeast funk and sweet malt.

T) Very hop forward, strong on the sap and resin. Has a strong malt backbone to back up the sappy bitterness.

F) Well carbonated, and has a creamy mouthfeel.

O) Not bad for the price at all. Would recommend to dank sap lovers.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, some hints of citrus. Taste is malts, some caramel, light citrus, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, isn't a bad beer, but lacks the punch and flavor I expect from this style.

[Bottle from Harvest Foods in Moses Lake. Deep amber with silky beige head. Malt dominates the aroma, nice caramelly scent. Malt also provides most of the flavor, with some hops at the end drying the whole thing out. Close to an English IPA.

Orange pour with a thin off white head in the range of 1/3". Aroma has the usual c hop grapefruit thing going for it.

Thankfully isn't a simple bitter bomb c hop double ipa, the bitterness is restrained for style. The abv is a smidge under 8% so its not a gigantic double. Enjoyable, hardly unique but serviceable. Wouldn't repeat the purchase though, its a bomber and only a 'good' one at best.

First example I've sampled from this Diamond Knot up to the West Coast labeling? A 22oz bomber was $7 here in NOVA.

Appearance: pours a beautiful burnt orange/caramel color. Minimal head.

Aroma: yeasty bread with a hint of spice.

Taste: lots of malty sweetness. Tea, wheat bread, and a touch of citrus are first impressions. There is an inkling of spicy hops, buts it's (unfortunately) dominated by the sweetness

Mouthfeel: very little carbonation. Surprisingly medium-to-light for a double.

Drinkability: if you lean to the sweet side for DIPA, then this is your beer. If you expect a spicy hop wallop, then search elsewhere. Although I wonder how it would taste on tap...Do I have a Washington trip coming up?

(On tap) Clear orange pour with a smallish head that laced the glass surprisingly well for it's small size. Aroma was very low key, faint and musty. Taste was heavily roasted malt followed by borderline unpleasant bitterness that seemed to clash with the beer's other flavors. Not terrible by any stretch, but not nearly as good as some of the other reviewers seem to have experienced. Maybe it was just the dregs of the keg...

Hoppy with nice lacing. My favorite from Diamond Knot Brewing. Better
when enjoyed at the brewpub.

A really nice IPA. Even better draft.
Light head, pleasant unfiltered golden brown color.
Rich mouthfeel for only 8% ABV.
Beautifully balanced bitter flavor.
In the same neighborhood as Dogfish Head 90 minute, but not as sweet, not as hot.
Excellent finish, good length, not super intense, but really nice nonetheless.
