COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cuso (4278) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2014
Can, courtesy of coldbrewky, big thank you Steve. Orange golden color with thick white head. Strong citrus hoppy aroma with malt in background. Taste, solid malty base, followed with nice hoppy kick, grapefruits, tangerines, orange zest, tropical fruits, pines, wood. Long mellow hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is very dangerously hidden. Very nice.

beerfest5 (1140) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 24, 2014
Another nice one from 21st Amendment. Big hop notes in the aroma, grapefruit, some resin, some burnt flavors possibly due to the can being on the shelf a little too long. Still delicious IIPA

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy deeper yellow with active carbonation and a slick thick head. Oily head leaves behind a dense layer of foam that does not separate e to lacing, but slowly drools back into the beer. Lighter side of medium body. Nose of condensed malts with a light bread yeast tone. Bod y is sturdy malts with a bit of grassy hop as a high lofty tone. Body is short and does not linger.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Can. Awesome, explosive citrus aroma with resiny characteristics as well. Medium mouthfeel, and although resiny and high ABV, drinks surprisingly well. I really like this. (from notes)

Poured from can. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Taste is bitter on front end, malty on backend with aging of oak also coming through. Very diffetent ipa from most. A liitle alcohol kick too.

mcclainc50 (164) - New York, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Pours a light golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit and hops. Barrel aging is up front with a lot of hoppy notes, had some maltiness that softens the pallet a bit. Reminds me of Ghandi Bot with a little more malt. Very good.
