Tap @ Toronado. A slightly hazed golden amber color with a white head. Very smooth while still packing a huge bitter hop punch. Pine and citrus (grapefruit) with some sweet malts.

the title of most dangerous beer suits exponential just right. the alcohol taste is hidden in the hops and orange, pine and honey tastes that permiate the entire pint. Delicious beer with a smooth delicious taste and look.

Clearish straw yellow, huge fluffy sticky, rocky head leaves an impression on the glass and is truly spectacular. Fluffy nose, yeasty and minty, highly aromatic and spicy hops. Baby powder feel through the most original ingredient blending, sweet, resinous and cedary, which is an element I truly dig in IPAs. Very perfumey. The taste is not quite as impressive. We’re facing chewy hops that are well-flavored and still cedary/flowery, but more dominant, sappy and like an hopstick rather than a poem. Medium-full bodied, soft to moderate expanding carbonation. Possibly my favorite I2PA. Props to cquiroga once again!

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Very appealing aroma of cedar and grapefruit. Very good flavor of grapefruit, sap and yeast. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture. Excellent !

The Lure:
A lump of wood still oozes some perfumy sap. Grapefruit orchards scent the air, as does Grandpa’s secret flask.

The Festivities:
Well-attenuated, the grapefruit and dry hop bitterness aren’t much more dangerous than their Pure Hoppiness. Pillow-y smoothness, fragile and very drinkable body, dry in the end for better quaffing. That wood is beautifully essential, yet not exponential.

Transcendence:
A painted forest still inspires over the mantle.

Huge Kudos to cquiroga for this.Pure and simple,this is the reality of the situation: I am hovering over this glass and all I can think is that I am in a Florida citrus grove.That DFH Baton brew is so far below this it is insane.Strong grapefruit.I am in love.The oak,and is very subtle,adds just enough to take a little bitterness off this.Heaven.

This was way better than the Pure Hoppiness even, and I really liked it. On tap at Liar’s. Definite taste of a dry hopped brew, nice citrus flavors compliment the pine, oak and strong hoppy flavors. And I thought I would be able to taste the alcohol more, but I was surprised that there was no burn... bitter finish.

egajdzis (5409) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2005
Poured a hazy, deep copper color with a small, thin, off white head that left a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, tangerine, apricots, floral and grassy hops, really nice. Well balanced taste, loads of piney and citrusy hops, nice bitterness, sweet chewy malts. Damn, I really liked this, thanks cquiroga!!

On tap at Liar’s Club in San Diego. Very aromatic hoppy pine-citrus aroma. A delight to sniff. Transparent copper/honey color with frothy white head and nice lacing. Very easy-drinking. Smooth with just enough piney hoppiness to finish. Well-made, with a nice body. Extremely drinkable!
