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

Benzai (9548) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle @ WWT IV. Clear a bit pale golden color, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts and hops but less hoppy than I had expected. Taste malts, hops, bitter. I miss fruity hops in this. I wouldn’t say this is a double IPA in a blind tasting. Medium body and carbonation. Too bad, but I’m a little disappointed by thus.

Kroney (186) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bomber into pint glass. Aroma is dank, grass, minimal malt and hints of citrus. Flavor is intense but balanced dank and citrus bitter hop, but amazingly easy to drink.

umich03jm (2452) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a nice ring. Awesome aroma of juicy oranges, flowers, pine, dank grass, and light cheese. Tastes like very oily fresh hop leaves. Moderately dank, big floral and pine hop bite, grapefruit peel, and loaded with hop oils. Moderately bitter. Medium body. Love the aroma but the taste is a tad harsh from being so oily. Still pretty great overall though.

conway (1863) - - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is floral, grassy and lightly fruity. Taste follows with a burst of perfume and blueberry. Medium mouthfeel and somewhat strong carb. Really awesome and a nice departure from the typical tropical fruit bomb.

Bule (1064) - California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
22oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Mixture of hop flavors that don't quite come together. A little alcohol harshness.
