This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt/bronzed orange to brown color with a quickly dissipating white foamy head that left a speckled thin white lacing. The smell started off with a bitter to sweet grassy hoppiness. Light honey, some tobacco. Delicate pine - super far underneath. The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned aromas to combine gently to a slight sweet contour rolling into the aftertaste. Quick sweet caramel finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sipping to sessionable sort of sly feel to it. Carbonation rides fairly light all around. Overall, for a DIPA, it works, mostly nothing over the top, but I could see myself coming back to if needed.

Nicely hopped ale, piney hops cover the high ABV%. Deep golden color with small creamy head. Aroma is pine and citrus, taste is soft and malty, with hops on the finish. Well done all around.

On tap in Sisters Oregon.
The body is deep amber; good clarity with a very good white head.
Piney-hoppy aroma.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
Moderately bitter; more in the aftertaste. Too bitter overall.

Not a whole lot of flavor on this ipa followed by a boozy bitter taste. Simply doesn't cut it for a imperial ipa

Poured from a 22oz bottle, 8.5% ABV 85 IBU bottle says they use 8 varieties of hops.
L: Pour a copper amber thin head some spotty lacing.
S: Some hops there not a big nose.
T: Hop bitterness is there but somewhat weak for a Imperial.
F:Good mouth feel hops and malt work.
O: Lacking the hop hit and citrus hit for me more like a British IPA in my opinion.

From a 22oz brown glass bottle purchased in Portland, OR

Pours a murky orange/copper brown color with an effusive creamy white head that dissipates slowly to a fine white lacing.

Super malty aromas of pine resin, raisin bran, orange peel, and fresh baked goods.

Thick and viscous on the palate with plenty of fruit, malt, and grain flavors that give way to a bitter hop finish. It has a relatively long finish with notes of burnt orange, pine stone fruit, and bbq'd lizard skin.

One of the weakest brews I have had from what is almost always a superb brewery. Not interesting to be frank.
