Sweet at the beginning. Dry and hopped at the end. The bitter is a good bitter. Not long lasting or sour. Full bodied and creamy even. Rounded. A good drinkable IPA that cleans the palate while you eat.

Dark copper with a thick hazy cloudiness. Small light tan head. Slight booziness on the nose with a hefty dry straw and grass aroma. The taste is very hop forward with a big dry earthy and herbaceous taste. Rich straw and dry autumn leaves abound in the taste. A malty maple syrup sweetness peaks through the hoppiness on the end. The hoppines builds to a medium heavy dryness building continually. The malt helps to balance the big hop character. The hops bring a great orange pithe and grapefruit juice tanginess to the picture. Pretty good imperial ipa. 7.0 qualifies as imperial right? It was a little on the dry side for my preference, but still pretty good.

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Clear hotel snifter glass
From: Whole Foods Market in Honolulu, Hawaii
Price: $6.99
Purchased: Dec. 20, 2015

Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark honey, brown, murky color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white, frothy head. Excellent foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled cascade hops, herbal hops, menthol, rye hops, spicy chinook hops, caramel, toffee and veggies. (Smell - 3.25)

Taste follows the nose, seeming more like a strong ale than an IPA (even an English IPA). Got caramel, toffee, herbal hops, menthol, cascade hops, tobacco and dates. Very malty. (Taste - 3.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture Average carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This should really be an American Strong Ale, but I reviwed this according to an IPA. Would have been around a 3.75 I would guess if reviewed this as an ASA. (Overall - 3.25)

Pours cloudy and deep amber, with a moderate amount of off-white head. The head hangs on and settles down to a thin disc. It still leaves a respectable amount of sticky small head. The smell is milder but still has some nice hoppy qualities (floral and pine) with some sweetness. The taste is about the same but a little more robust and is pretty good. The body is a little lighter and slightly thin, but not bad.

Drank straight out of the 22oz bomber. Solid hop flavor and aroma. Citrus and Pine with stiff bitterness that hangs in from start to finish and leaves a malty film in the mouth and a buzz on the tongue. Definitely a true IPA and might require some big pants for some to palate. I like it and it's recommend you try it.

Bough from Bev Mart $2.59 12 ounce. Poured into a glass. Hazy copper color, taste of chocolate, smooth and easy drinking. I've never had an IPA that had a taste of chocolate so it was an interesting beer to try.

L: Copper in colour, clear, one inch of which white head when poured into an IPA glass
S: Melon, papaya, wet earth, citrusy, a bit resinous, touch of bread crusts
T: Citrus, pine, resin, earthy, bread crust, some malt sweetness, aggressive bitterness
F: Medium-full bodied, well carbonated, great bitterness from start to finish and then lingers on the palate
O: Solid, delicious IPA, all that NW hop goodness with a big enough malt body to keep it all balanced. Not for the faint of heart, a true IPA for hop lovers.

Bomber poured into pint glass. Pours a lovely haze copper-orange with decent head.
Aroma is pleasant. Taste is what you expect, citrus with pine, very delicious (chinook and cascade). Hint of mint. This beer drinks like a DIPA, it feels bigger than its stats. Loving it. The finish is very smooth, you will want more. Overall this is a high quality PNW IPA at a bargain price.
