[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 brewery...is 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.
