I am considering these for an IPA as a huge late addition blast. What are everyone's experience with this blend?

A few more suggestions in my area (Yakima Valley) would be Ice Harbor in TriCities has two places both with good food and great beer. I like the old location on Benton Street, while my wife prefers the newer place on Clover Island. A few miles west in Prosser in Horse Heaven Hills Brewery. A small brew pub owned by a couple great guys. I often use Gary, the brewer to critique by lastest brew. In Ellensburg is Iron Horse Brewery. I haven't been to there "Micropub", I've only been to the Brewery/Tasting Room. It was a small place with good beer. Their Irish Death and IPA are worth the stop.
Have a great journey!
I grew up in Ellensburg and am loving that after Burt Grant there is actually something in eastern washington to find. I have been happy with Iron Horse. They have exploded over the last few years into doing some great beer. The imperial IPA is hard to find but it is amazing.
Desert Edge Brewery and Pub in Salt Lake City is a sentimental favorite of mine. I used to go there when you could get Coors or Bud, and now it's a full brew pub. They only brew 4% ABV beers, though, so they may not appeal to your Northwest palate. I've had some pretty tasty beers there, though.
I haven't been, but I've heard good things about the Bayou in SLC. You can enjoy paying Utah's marked up price for bottled beers, as they don't allow draft over 4% ABV. Utah brewers are doing some good things at that limit, give some a try.
It's easier if I just stick with my favorite local places (alphabetically).
I take this list and add
13 you say?
A Baker's dozen of awesome.
About 4oz. of cacao nibs in the secondary for a stout or a porter give a very clean chocolate flavor. This is usually my go to for a "chocolate" beer. Maybe 2oz. for a brown or dubbel?
