This beer is a work of fiction. Any similarities to any other beer, living or dead, are purely coincidental. This is a gentle giant of a double IPA. Sure, the malt bill is rather large. Sure, itís a little boozy. Sure, the hop bill is completely unreasonable. But thatís no reason to get so aggressive. Letís all just relax and soak in the complex blend of German and American malts. Letís kick back and bask in the heightened IBUs holding up the earthy, fruity, grapefuity, lemony, piney, myrcene-heavy flavors provided by late hopping with Sorachi Ace, Simcoe, and Falconerís Flight hops and dry hopping with Centennial and Citra hops. Just chill out and throw one back in the hot, hot sun.

Tap at 2013 GTMW, pours a hazy amber orange with a good white head and lacing through out the glass, the aroma was pretty fresh, nice amount of grapefruit and citrus, not overwhelming but a nice break from all the huge impy stouts at this tent, the flavor is light for it being over 10% and has a good amount of pine and fruit through out, nice clean mouthfeel, enjoyed this one.

Thought it was a godo dipa, citrusy, lemony, tropical, covers a lot of the bases, not too too malty though it is htere.

ContemplateBeer (1996) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Aroma: (9- world class) Huge resinous pine, grapefruit hops with solid caramel, cereal malts. A touch of white pepper as well. Appearance: (4- high quality) Dark copper, very still, sticky bone head. Flavor: (8- very high quality) Semi sweet, semi bitter attack followed by a crescendo to piney, resiny, grapefruit hop intensity. Caramel and cereal present through the massive hop pyrotechnics, but appropriately muted. Palate: (3- average) Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A superior DIPA with an interesting hop shape; reminds me of Jaipur in that respect.

Draft. Tangerine/pineapple and orange peel aroma. Hazy amber with moderate head. Very sweet orange-pineapple and moderately bitter citrus peel flavor. Lingering bitterness. Tasty.
