The name is a tribute to the hop shortage a few years ago. A imperial IPA aged on oak using Columbus, Centennial and cascades as the bittering hops and dry hopping with Simcoe, Ahtanum, Amarillo, and Cascades.

Imagine licking a bitter flame in a glass. Burning from the merciless fusion of insane hop acid and a powerful, albeit well hidden, amount of alcohol. Itís like a well controlled blow torch full of inanity and over the top hops. I can barely drink it, but I love every sip.

I had this from my dad, in front of my mom, so it was drank out of a red solo cup. So I couldnít see the color great because they donít appreciate good beer. Itís pretty hoppy, good IPA. I canít really smell an aroma or see the color. Good IPA mouthfeel.

Can. Light clear gold with a thick white head. Aroma is melon and oak. Taste follows and adds some spicy and citrusy hops with substantial booze. Nice vanilla note on the finish from the oak. Rich mouthfeel and long finish. A little too sweet but pretty nice.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-clear yellow color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Thereís some light foamy lacing just kinda clinging all over the place. The smell had a fine sweet grapefruit with some cherishing citrus characteristics running all over in and out but in a good way. The taste was pretty much the same with a leading sticky edge of citrus freshness to be in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. ABV? What ABV, haha, I felt or tasted none of it. Overall, DIPA, well done one. Sheís dangerously sessionable. Iím pretty sure Iíd have this again.

Great white head, smooth pour. Aroma is mild, lingering bitter taste at back. Enjoyed while on rainy Seward Alaska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lizardking3 (104) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2014
I couldnít get into this one very much. Pours a surprisingly clear light gold, almost lagerish. Aroma is nice, ripe mango and resins. The taste wasnít on par for me, a little too heavy on the malt backbone and a strange medicinal overtone. Just didnít do it for me
