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.

12oz can. Feels odd pouring a can into a tulip glass. Nice big foamy white head. Perfectly clear orange color. Some lacing. Really great taste. Sweet for sure, then bitter. Hoppy, mild warmth through the aftertaste, but not itís appropriate for the ABV. Complex aroma. I think Iím detecting the oak, and liking it, but who knows. Very soft, smooth, pretty drinkable for what it is. Diverse aftertaste, with good sweet notes (maybe the oak?). Satisfying and unusual. A good beer. Next time friends/family invite me to go boating, Iím picking up a pack of this stuff (cans only on the lake, typically)

From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.

4 pack of cans from Perfect Pour. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange with a beautiful fluffy head. Aroma holds big notes of pineapple, mango, grass, evergreen, and orange peel. Flavor is marked by wonderful nectar fruit presence along with tangerine and some clover honey. Not too bitter, incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Very very nice.

can thanks to Crusian...bright dark gold with a wonderful light tan head, great retention and lacing... as soon as pop the tab pineapple yummyness is bursting out, a touch of sugar cookie not really any hops, but this smells great... the taste loses a lot of the quality of the nose and comes across a mix mash of sweet malt notes, again not a ton of hops except on the finish which is a bit bitter and alcoholic, sweet and easy to drink, canít believe this is 9.7% an in a can... a super sweet dipa thatís easy to drink and get you messed up, Iíd gladly have again

12 ounce can into tulip, interesting can design with inscriptions haha. Pours crystal clear light orange amber color with a dense 2 finger off white head with great retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap. Thick lacing sticks to the glass as well. Aromas of big grapefruit, pine, caramel, pineapple, and pine. Big sweetness in the aromas, with little spiciness from hops. Taste of tons of orange, pine, orange zest, caramel, oak, and a bit of spiciness. Big sweetness up front with a decent amount of bitterness on the finish, but not as much as I was expecting. Some lingering bitterness on the finish with citrus and pine notes. Much more malt forward DIPA here. Low-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied with a bit of a sticky and slick mouthfeel. No alcohol noticed at all surprisingly. Overall, a damn nice DIPA, with easy drinkability and all around good flavor.

Tin. Orange poor with thin white head. Moderate lacing. Citrusy aroma, not as full as one would expect in a DIPA, but pleasant. Full flavoured, floral notes, Blood orange notes in the finish. Doesnít tast as strong as it is.

Can from 16 Tons. Deep amber pour with a long lasting huge and frothy white head. Initial whiff of caramel mixes with citrus and light oak for a nice nose. Much more oak in the flavor, which to me is not as well melded as Burton Baton or Oak Aged Unearthly. A little sweet as well.

Bottle thanks to crusianbeer. Poured gold with a white creamy head. Aroma was wonderful at first with peach, mango, and a fruity bouquet; then I got some sour milk. Flavor was lots of citrus, pine, and some caramel malt on the finish. Body was medium with soft carbonation.

This is a very tasty IPA. Lots of complex hop flavor, fairly well balanced with malts. Pours a gorgeous light orange with a huge white head. Plenty of aroma. He oak adds a little roundness to the flavor that I like. Very good IIPA.
