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

keanex (1655) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle - Best by June 10, 2016.
Appearance: Mostly clear amber with some fine sediment floating in suspension. Moderately large head that dissipates to a soft coating but a huge ring.
Aroma: Caramel malts with mildly malty sweetness, orange pushes through from the hops.
Taste: Caramel and malty, mild hop bitterness, mostly some bitter orange and grapefruit. Yawn. Tastes old, but it’s fresh.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Super mediocre. If this is what people hyped up then local favoritism is shown at it’s finest. Not sure if Green Flash fucked this up, but the three beers that came here from Alpine are super mediocre and trounced by most local brewery’s IPAs.

Bebum (608) - - JAN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Orange/amber, clear, tall, orange head. Full body, strong flavor, hot mouthfeel, well carbonated, long palate tasty but clean finish. Very bitter but well balanced by malty and crisp background. Caramel, cinammon, orange, hoppy, woody, vanilla. Quite delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

euniceradio (339) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Tap to tulip. Pours clear copper red, tan sticky head. Aroma of peppercorn, grapefruit, pine, bread, resin. Taste is super dank, HOP PUNCH TO THE FACE! Still a good caramel malt backbone. Finish is lasting dank bitterness with some trop fruit. Damn that’s good!

Pleasant resin aroma, also bread, golden haze appearance, minimal white foam, coppery finish. Super hopped but not too bitter. I really enjoyed this.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle (but also on tap as guest tap at Green Flash). Medium orange, clingy white head. Pungent earthy resinous hop character, spicy undertones, oily body, long bitter finish. Complex, excellent.

WillRunForBeer (1814) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Draft at Ale House. Pours orange golden brown with a big white head. Aroma is floral, grapefruit, pine. Flavor is caramel, grapefruit, a touch of pine, but honestly, this falls very short of the expected hop wallop. Drinkable, but the flavor in a beer called Pure Hoppiness should be dominated by hops. It’s not. Maybe the keg took 6 months to get here from CA?

yourilevesque (901) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
Dégustée ne fût avec Lussier et Mademoiselle Irina. Bière parfaitement filtrée et de couleur dorée, la bière semble lourde et sucrée. Des arômes où le malt relayent les houblons au rôle de faire-valoir. Beaucoup trop de grains, la texture de la bière est huileuse et lourde. Buvabilité zéro lorsque tu t’attends à une bière houblonnée et légère, je sens un alcool déplaisant dans un verre rempli de céréales caramélisées et maladroitement houblonné. Très décevante cette IIPA dont je n’ai pas eu envie de terminer le verre.

dwyerpg (5087) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 8, 2016
This is got some big time hops. Only bittering hops in the aroma, both the body and the finish are incredibly bitter. Even as a hop head this beer could give you the bitter beer face from those old Keystone Light commercials

12oz bottle. Great beer. One of my new favorites. Goes great with dinner tonight, washing down the pot roast. This is one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Unfortunately it is not available where I live. My pops brings this down from D.C. when he comes to visit. Always good times, always hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arnold931 (1108) - Iowa, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Draft at Bricks. Pours cloudy gold with thin white head. Nose is mild citrus. Taste is sweetness up front followed by bitter aftertaste. Tastes like an imperial IPA.
