22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a deep burnt amber with a medium white head, no lace.

S: Lots of pine, cedar and white grapefruit, classic NW hops.

T: Pine heavy with grapefruit and orange. Lots of hop character with some nice crystal malt flavour.

M: Medium to full-bodied. Oily and very resiny, intense.

O: A very good, but very northwest DIPA. I liked it quite a bit.

Ordered from LetsPour and poured into a Pike pint glass.

Appearance - The bottle art of this double turned me on, but I was disappointed as soon as the liquid hit the glass. A watery sewer/caramel appearance. Light carbonation with decent lacing. The head disappears quickly and is extremely white.

Smell - Extremely faint. Does not smell fresh at all - I wish the bottle had a date on it. Very faint toffee.

Taste - Fairly rotten. It gets a little better as my palate adjusts. Rye is the most prominent flavor, while dying grass and a bit of beets and alcohol kick in later. Faint caramel and toffee that does combine well with the sad excuse for hops

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Light-bodied with a sewery alcohol taste that is unbalanced. It's hard to get through this glass honestly. The whole thing tastes extremely rotten, like I am drinking very dirty well water. This beer was a HUGE letdown for me. The taste is just bland. It is not sweet, nor is it bitter. It isn't thick like honey, nor is it terribly watery. I don't know what this is.

22oz into a pint - funny I had to go to Florida to get a beer from Washington.

A - Pours a clear, golden brown color. Head is strong, pearly white, about 2mm thick, sticks around for a while.

S - Leads with a strong malt nose, of nuts, and perhaps a little bit of chocolate. May be a decent rye base here.

T - Starts off malty, a bit edgy, again demonstrating some rye characteristics. Some chocolate malts. Mid-stream brings on a hefty citrus hop note, very thick - almost oily. Finishes with a strong bitter bite.

M - Moderate beer body, moderate carbonation. Comes off a bit thick, sometimes creamy. The alcohol doesn't come through much. A sticky finish.

O/D - A solid IPA, almost more of a rye IPA I would wager. A little on the sweeter side, perhaps unattenuated. Rather enjoyable balance of flavors. Worth a shot.

Picked up in Ponderay, Idaho. From a 22 oz. brown bomber. Pours out a clear copper hue, with a short loose creamy off-white head.

Dry biscuity malt with a bit of toastiness, sweet orange and peach esters, dry citrus hops.

Tastes to me like some Amarillo hops are doing some legwork in the flavour, right off the top. Dry toasty, biscuity malt officially steps in up front, followed by floral and herbal hops, and finishing with sweet orange citrus hops, and a surprising appearance of some bready, caramel malt. Big win for balance throughout. Aftertaste is dry citrus pith, astringent but clean.

Medium-light mouthfeel, smooth and clean texture, with moderate texture.

Not amazing but still really good, not to downplay its merits, this still delivers the goods. Balanced and rounded, it nearly flies under the radar of the style, but in a tasteful way, a great gateway beer for the style, I know I want more.

22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a hazy dark amber color. Very little head, hardly a lacing on the glass.

S - Honey, fresh flowers, sourdough bread, pine hops, and spices. I like this interesting blend of aromas.

T - Starts with sweet tangerine and toffee. Some sticky pine hops follow. Leaves a bittersweet aftertaste.

M - Carbonation is smooth and the finish is dry. Medium thickness.

O - I snagged this randomly off a the shelf at Total Wine. It is pretty good, not great, but the low price ($5/bomber) makes it worthy.

One Pint 6 FL OZs...Poured into a Tulip glass.

A: Clear brassy hue…Leaves behind some fluffy rings of lacing.

S: Strong hops, Mint, marmalade, faint caramel, ripe pear, Orange citrus, lemon juice, light florals and grass.

T: Very smooth, deep crispness, hop bitterness… Upfront there is pineapple… lemon juice followed by leafy, dried grass, lightly toasted bread, clean caramel notes mid-palate. Finishes with pine and grassy floral…drying finishes…with lingering alcohol due to the close to 8%...

M: Pretty much a full bodied, 'BIG' beer, juicy, crisp and bitter.

O: Very clean, Very drinkable.Just an outstanding Double American IPA all around… pretty much nailed it with this one! Although...take the 'very drinkable' comments with warning... if you have more than 2-3 of these, you 'could-be' in TROUBLE...Drink with care as after just one bomber, it gets you in the 'woo-woo!!'...Chasin'-Cheers :~)
