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

SeniorZozo (1037) - 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 (877) - 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 (2864) - 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.

humpah (80) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 30, 2016
From notes: Bottle at home bought from Firmabier. Best before early May 2016, so not very fresh one. Light yellow/golden colour with a medium head. Strong citrus, fruit and pine flavor with a lot of hoppiness. Very drinkable.

tomer (2788) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 27, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small stable creamy bubbly head, slightly hazy deepish orange color, citrus and herbs aroma, some fruit and straw, orange marmalade and herbs aroma with some biscuit in the back, quite strong but mellow bitterness, light sweetness. Nice and drinkable, not too heavy for a DIPA.

FatPhil (13075) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 23, 2016
35ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Orange, brief head. Extremely soapy hop aroma, nothing else pushes past that. Taste at least has a hint of sweet malts, but the aggressive hops have again pushed themeselves to the front. Tons of citrus, lots of orange zest, and mixed peel. Quickly becomes as soapy as the aroma. Aggressive, and not particularly drinkable. OK, does hide the 8% behind the monstrous onslaught of sugar and hops. The phaal of beers - you can show off by pretending to enjoy it if you like, if that makes you big. Sub-par as a drink I’d want to drink.

Bottle shared by Mart. Slightly hazy golden beer, medium white head. Nose is resiny, hoppy, citric, pine, oranges. Flavor is piney, oranges and grapefruit, caramel, malty toastiness. Hoppy and piney finish, resin, oranges. Lots of lingering hops. Pretty smooth and very drinkable.
