COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle.My first from this brewery. Orange and clear with a small head. Hoppy and floral with a medium body. Doesn’t taste as strong as it possibly should. Very pleasant but left me thinking why is it so highly rated?

stantheman (855) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
Small bottle from Bottle Jockey in Burnaby. An orange amber beer with generous beige head and bitter-sweet fruity hop nose. Bitter citrus piney hops are up front, but closely mellowed by malted grains. Nicely balanced. Lingering bitter aftertaste. 4.1

Saeglopur (1597) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 15, 2016
355 ml bottle, bb 10 May 16, from Firma Bier. Thanks to Werckmeister!
Dark amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, slightly yellowish head.
Aroma with lots of citrus and pine, also grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, biscuit, some vanilla.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes perfectly smooth, medium bitter, quite dry, piney, citric, zesty, a bit malty.

Very tasty! Really surprising, even shortly past the best by date still crisp and hoppy, with wonderful citric and piney notes. Also perfectly balanced, with a lovely, smooth malt backbone and really easy for the ABV. World class DIPA, I’m really curious how much better this is fresh!

SeniorZozo (897) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2016
Hazy amber with fluffy off-white head. As expected, hops rule the day in both aroma and taste. Even with the hop variety listed, flavors lean toward the resinous, piney end of the spectrum. great

fkoolen (826) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle at home, best by 16.05.2016. Beautiful cloudy golden colour, firm offwhite creamy head. Rich nose with caramel sweet malts battling with resinous, piney, sprucy hops, grassy and light citrus and mango tones too. Big but rounded bitter punch in the finish. Aftertaste keeps building with sprucy, resinous, sweet bitterness. Big body, medium carbonation, sticky mouthfeel.

gegwilson (2791) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from the Hop Hideout in Sheffield. Pours hazy golden with a fairly thin off white head. Nice pineapple aroma. The taste has lots of bitter pine and caramel. Big and bitter. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Lovely.
