Bottle share from Toby. Nice blend of big hops, dank, musty, in your face. Almost heading into triple IPA territory. Three great brewers get together and make an excellent beer.

This pours a clear clean golden tan. Classic dipa with a smiley hint on the finish. Yeah, that's what I'm picking up. Full body, some guava notes, and that touch of Laphroaig whisky. Yum.

Bright amber in color, mostly clear. Thin head that diminished quickly. Moderate streak lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit, stone and tropical. Flavor is similar, dank and ripe. Sweet and juicy. Hints of grapefruit and tangerine in the finish. Caramel malt smooths it all out. A hint of alcohol vapor, to be expected. A great collab from 3 top notch breweries.

Growler from Belmont Station.

A clear copper with a thin, white head that falls off to a ring rapidly, this looks solid. The nose is pungently pine-heavy, promising a potent bitterness. Citrus peel and pine sap, along with orange and some grapefruit, the flavor profile calls to mind the highly sought out DIPAs from the late 2000s. The palate opens bitter, creamy and with a touch of sweetness. Pine, orange peel, grapefruit zest along with a grapefruit pith bitterness are present. Sweetness is minimal, there's just a touch of caramel and toffee present. Very faintly soapy as well. Drying, dank, bitter and resiny on the finish, this is a pretty excellent DIPA - just what I was craving.

Pineapple chunks up front, pithy grapefruit on the finish. I heard a lot of grapefruit rinds were peeled and added, and I was surprised to find the grapefruit taste without the astringent rind bitterness. Excellent dipa!

On tap @ The Pine Box in Seattle

Clear golden, orange with a thin foamy white head.

Resiny, citrusy hop bomb highlighted by some fruity, tropical notes in both the aroma and taste.

Medium body, slightly oily hop feel, medium carbonation, a wonderful DIPA overall.

On tap at the bier stein. To no great surprise, this was absolutely outstanding. The nose is all skunky hops, pine, light tropical fruit and dry citrus, and the flavor profile is just more of the same, but with a long, dry, bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is exceptional.

Tried this side by side with IPA's from Almanac and Cascade, and this blew them both out of the water (though the Almanac was actually quite good). Another excellent IPA from Barley Brown.

Draft at Bier Thirty... Pours a almost perfectly clear deep golden/light orange with a nice meringue white head... Nice lacing. Pithy citrus and juicy tropical fruit.. Not hugely bitter with dangerous drinkability... Top tier DIPA without a doubt. Finishes a little dry... Nearly perfect.
