Pint and growler purchased @ Chuck's 85th, Ballard, Seattle. Pint--$4.00. Growler--$15.00. Half Growler--$7.50. Thin mild lace wispy white head. Cloudy bright orange gold color. Aromatic floral West Coast big but not overpowering hop front. Surprisingly mellow medium textured balanced mild sweet light caramel herbal body. Balanced hop spice tasty clean bitter hint satisfying rich IPA end. Very smooth and mellow for it's 10% ABV and 80 Ibu's. Big and Tasty! (4.25 / 5.0)

12oz snifter consumed at Manito Tap House in Spokane, WA, for $5.50.

Slightly coppery amber, with a decent, off-white head and really great clarity. Streaky, spotty lace.

The nose is redolent with geapefruiy and pine sappy hops. Minimal, sweet malt aroma.

The malts are bigger in the taste than in the nose. The taste is still dominated by the hops, but there's a big, meaty-textured malt backbone as well. The fruity and piney hops don't completely meld together, either.

Big body tothis, bigger than most IPAs, regular or double. Big, coating, sappy mouthfeel.

A lot of hops in this beer, but they don't all play nice. This is a BIG beer, almost more like a barleywine. I'm not sure it's my cup of tea.

Very pleasant and drinkable at first but the sweetness builds as you drink it.

Crowler from share on 11/12. Pours out a nice, rich golden color, with small, soft, fluffy head. Hops dominate the aroma, some nice citrus, fruity sweetness. Taste continues with more of the hop forward flavors, some juicy tropical fruits. Lingering bitter bite.
