Shared by someone at Woodshop Classix. Thanks?

A: Cloudy orange with no head.

S: Oxidized bread with heavy caramel and a touch of cardboard. Feeble orange and grapefruit. Sad.

T: So much malt. Cardboard, bread, and caramel. Almost no hop profile. Alcohol is strong. Good lord.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Another hoppy failure from the Northwest. Washington consumers should demand more from their breweries.

Bottled: unk

Update: this is not a limited release, it's brewed year around as far I can tell.

Pours a rather dark amber with a solid sheet of light yellow foam. Ruddy. Smells like grass, grapefruit, resin, mint and sweet crystal malts. Flavor is very balanced, more so than I would prefer in a DIPA. Malts up front with dry bitterness and some grapefruit rind. A bit of oxidation on the malts. Medium on full bodied with moderately hi carb to boot. This is a below average beer. I've got a couple friends to I recall really digging this beer, but I can't really subscribe. Not likely to reinvest here.

Pours hazy bright orange with a few fingers of foamy head. Good moderate lacing down the glass.

Aroma is a little malt forward for the style. A lot of sweet bread aroma along with a pine forest of hops. Maybe a touch of citrus, but the aroma is pretty one note hop wise.

A little more citrus in the flavor, but still drowned out by a lot of pine. Not a bad flavor, but not complexity either. The malt sweetness cuts through and it creates a somewhat metallic finish. A little awkward on the back of the tongue.

Finishes pretty dry with the resiny hops lingering and unfortunately the off flavor lingering on the tongue.

Mediocre IPA. Some good things here, but a few flaws too and the flavor profile is a bit too one note for me.

In a word, meh. Pretty average IPA with a fairly weak hop profile. ABV at 7% had me expecting a bolder profile. Probably will look elsewhere for my future hop fix.

It has a smooth bitter taste. This is more of a hop head beer. It is a double IPA but did not taste like it it only tasted like a regular IPA. Smells like a normal beer did not tatse the alcohol . it had a average apperance on pour. overall good beer but not great i say try it at least once

would not buy again

Thanks for sharing, Gil.

A: The beer pours golden amber in color with a finger of white head and some sticky lacing.

S: Sweet and malty. Lots of bread and caramel notes with a bit of toffee character. Lightly piney with some citrus peel along with a little bit of grass. Very minimal floral hop aromas. Slightly oxidized: a touch of cardboard.

T: The flavor is just more of the same. Stale hops giving off light citrus notes. Grass and pine with a little floral character to it. Pretty minimal bitterness and in fact, it's fairly sweet and malty.

M: Medium in both body and carbonation.

O: Disappointing. Not at all what I like in DIPAs.
