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

Idiosynkrasie (5852) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 6, 2016
355ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, and lacing, white head. Piney, citrusy, hoppy aroma, notes of pineapple, grapefruit, a zesty touch, hints of candied orange zest, lemon, lemon zest, somne resin, caramel malty basis. Taste is citrusy and bitter hoppy, piney, slightly resinous, notes of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, caramel and pale malty backbone with moderate sweetness and cautious almond touch, candied lemon zest throughout, a grassy and leafy, almost peppery touch as well; full body, nevertheless dangerously drinkable. Superbly balanced, clean and flawless, but not engineered up to sterility - hop flavour spectrum remains uncut and delivers enough grassy- and hop-spiciness in unadulterated naturalness. Very good.

Pours clear copper with a nice, fluffy head. Aroma is fresh, sticky pine and malt. A lovely pine hopiness and sweet malt is balanced by a nice bitterness.

McNeillR (2118) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2016
Fairly clear greasy golden, small white ringed head an a rounded daubed white lacing. Nose is very rich pine and caramel, wafery and boozy. Initial taste is lean spearminty lime, a cartwheel of bitterness early doors. Carbonation is firm and the mouthfeel is fairly cloying. Things settle out quite well on the finish, a sunny and sweet headbutt of the malt (could have done with tanning this a month ago to be fair) and lingers out a clinical orange Jelly Tot sweetness. A tad paint strippery as I adjusted, but solid boozt jooz even at this age.

davidezdonz (196) - , HONG KONG - MAR 29, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 10th May 2016, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a slightly hazy orange colour with puffy three finger off white head that had good retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing. Aromas of citrusy mandarin orange, slightly candied, piney hops and some light tropical fruit. The finish is a very nice strong floral. Taste starts lightly sweet with mango and orange. The finish is a strong lasting grapefruit pith bitterness with some light caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a very nice bitter DIPA. Great balance between the malts and hops.

Habanero (3694) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2016
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with a large, lacing off-white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, tropical fruit notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. An excellent DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

DandyWolfFloyd (977) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Aroma - big pine and pungent hops. The hops seem to be of a Pacific Northwest variety - Columbia, Cascade, Willamette, Warrior, and Tomahawk hops. The malt caramel. Appearance - body is a hazy Mikado yellow. The body is about 1" and off-white. The head is tight and fades slowly. Slight splashed lacing. Taste - is an abundant mix of Pacific West hops. There is a mix of pungent and pine. This is a classical taste, long gone; not usually seen since the original IPA varieties. The oils are strong. Palate - medium body, the texture is oily, the carbonation is average, the finish bitter, some oil, and slightly herbal.

stevoj (3531) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle from Brewers Haven. 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. Bitter snap at the end.

Finhead (1526) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Clear, deep golden pour with a white head. The aroma has floral hops with pine being most prominent. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste begins bittersweet but finishes moderately bitter.

zimbo (861) - SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Golden. Haze. Glossy modest to full head. Pretty bitter and fullish but not a lot of dimension or development. Good depth though without being penetrating or remorseless.
