COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, it’s a little boozy. Sure, the hop bill is completely unreasonable. But that’s no reason to get so aggressive. Let’s all just relax and soak in the complex blend of German and American malts. Let’s 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 Falconer’s Flight hops and dry hopping with Centennial and Citra hops. Just chill out and throw one back in the hot, hot sun.

fiulijn (14740) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade
Cloudy dull amber color with brown hue and small head. Strong fruity hop aroma, caramel, with a moderate spicy impression, citrus fruits, hint of cedar wood and animal; quite seducing. Strong body; caramel and toffee flavor, powerful, quite sweet but not syrupy, strong bitterness, the hop qualities are quite evident (mix of mild fruits and stronger resins; bitter oranges).
Just your typical American IIPA, but well brewed.

crossovert (7441) - Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thought it was a godo dipa, citrusy, lemony, tropical, covers a lot of the bases, not too too malty though it is htere.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2014
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangé/ambré assez trouble, col beige. Arôme est malté, caramel avec qcq pointe toffee et franchement très peu au niveau tropical. Ce dernier reste en retrait avec qcq pointes agrumes. Palais est agréablement fruité avec des notes rappelant de suite le Sorachi et le Citra qui prennent un peu le dessus sur le reste de la bière. Légèrement résineux en fin de bouche avec un profil tropical qui finit pas s’estomper au fur et à mesure que la bière se réchauffe. Léger fini levure avec un résiduel sucre brun, malté cara. Pas mauvais mais le profil trop centré sur les malts grillé/cara joue un peu en défaveur de la bière.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at Beer Temple. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of resin and grapefruit with some bitter pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has resin, bitter pine and grapefruit throughout with an earthy bread backbone.

olio (6231) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Tap @ Fermentoren.
Pours hazy copper color with a small lasting head. Aroma of exotic fruits, intense hops, pine, resin and caramel malts. Flavour of fruits, resinous hops, pine and caramel malts. Somewhat stuffy, probably the most intense hops have dissappeared, not too sweet though, which is surprising. Decepively easy to drink.
