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.

cmonster (972) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Growler served in a tulip. Pours crystal clear orange-amber with a medium sized off-white head. Good retention, excellent lace. Big, citrusy hop aroma. Backdrop of more hops, grassy green variety. Flavor is malty sweet with a little oak showing. Medium+ body, very creamy-sticky texture, with a sweet, then bitter finish. Very green bitterness at the death. This drinks very smooth for having such monster abv. I certainly wouldn’t turn away a pint, but there seems to be a missing element.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack this beer poured an orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and produced decent lacing. The aroma was strong pine, grapefruit and pineapple. The flavor was very sweet with strong caramel and strong notes of grapefruit, pineapple and pine. The beer was quite bitter and rather harsh with notes of grain alcohol - very boozy. The finish was long, bitter, fruity and floral with a harsh bitterness that does not want to leave. Full bodied. Distractingly boozy. There are some nice elements but the whole does not satisfy. Interesting.

Pours an ever so slightly hazed bright yellow with a thin whisp of a white head. Sticky legs on its way down. Smell is a tad bit muted--especially compared to the taste. Initial impression is quite hoppy with some citrus rind. Not too much depth, but excellent bitterness level. Mouthfeel is fantastic...light, dry, well carbonated, and quite bitter. Superb drinkability. Glad this made its way out to DC. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-22-2010

Nice aroma of citrus hops, caramel. The appearance is a somewhat clear amber color, white head. The flavor is caramel, bread, citrus. the finish is where citrus and pine hop bitterness both come into play. Medium in body. Nothing unusual, just a solid beer.

Draft at Spinoza’s. Nice bright amber beer with a thin head. Subdued aroma but drinks with a nice solid hop character without being overbearing Excellent. (#4022, 11/29/2010)

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Golden amber with a little bit of white head. Lots of hop and citrus aroma with a bit of bready malt. Medium to light bodied with a bit of bitterness. You definitely notice the dry hopping in the aroma and with the lack of bitterness, and the oak aging definitely mellows it out a bit. A very well balanced and enjoyable IPA.

A golden amber IPA with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, nice pungeant floral c-hops, resinous, light peppery notes. In mouth, an intense hoppy ale with loads of c-hops, citrus pulp. lightly sweet, subdued alcohol, overall, quite nice. On tap at ChurchKey DC, Sept. 18 2010.

Draft @ rnh. Golden pour with some light head. Sweet caramel and pine and citrus hop notes. Different because of the sweetness, but that does cover the high abv, hops do dominate flavor though.
