COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just like a gambler doubling down in Vegas so is this beer on the hops. The heavy handed additions of Magnum, Simcoe, and Chinook drives the hop charge over the top. Malt, being the counterpart in this beer, is built upon Pale, Crystal, Carapils, and Munich. All this combined creates a royal flush of a brew. If you donít LOVE hops, then donít even bother!

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a nice off-white head and a slightly sour citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a slightly hatsh bitter finish.

Salmoniform (1192) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, orange, mango, papaya, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet with a nice hop bitterness and slight ethanol finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

Pours a slightly hazed golden... nice white head with great lacing. Jesus... That is hoppy!! Tons of mango... melon... tangerine... pineapple? A freaking tropical fruit bowl... Seriously, it smells like it will cake your nose hairs with lupulin glands... a very tiny bit of residual pale maltiness makes all the different fruity hoppy notes mesh. WOW.... Caking hop flavors, but surprisingly not as bitter as I would have guessed... Again... a massive tropical fruity presence... just enough malt to deliver the hop whollup.. oily and clinging.. body is spot on, but the carbonation seems at touch light... amazing how FRESH this tastes.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy apricot gold with whiteish head. Aroma is rather clean pine. Full bodied. Itís pine and light stone fruits. Finishes not quite dry, and very hoppy fruity.

IndianaRed (2726) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2014
On tap at the Boise BP In a snifter, slight hazy orange/light amber with a small sandy head. Easy muted deep hoppy aroma, as if the fresh sharp brightness had faded a bit. Decent bitterness but not a bomb, Full hoppy flavors and moderate malt back end. Pretty big bite at the end. Ive had plent of DIPAs that were bigger hop monsters but this is balanced and easy...even at over 9%

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Orange golden color with an off white head. Wonderful floral/citrus aroma. Nice smooth flavor with no tinge of bitterness. You would never guess 100 ibuís. This beer also hides the alcohol well. Great DIPA!!!

Ferris (6780) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Draft - grapefruit and pith. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Cloying pithy and malt sweetness. Rich, but a little cloying.

Right from the get go, I like this. Hits all the right notes, from aroma to taste. Copper color, citrus/pine aroma, sharp hop bitterness. Lovely.

Mrrr... Sweet like liquor body, big, overwhelms the hops which are bitter but no specific hope profile, somewhat resinous.
