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

From tap at Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Pours almost clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Light peachy and grapefruity hops aroma. Flavour is dense malty and solid hoppy fruity. Utterly wellbalanced and smooth. Medium dry hoppy finish with a nice bitterness.

Ungstrup (29476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is lovely grassy and hoppy - like sticking your head in a hop plant. The flavor is sweet and extremely hoppy and grassy combined with notes of oil, caramel, and citrus.

(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fresh, hoppy and somewhat perfumy citrus aroma. The body is medium with sweet, malty accents and some caramel thrown in. But otherwise this is completely dominated by extremely perfumy aroma hops. Not overly bitter though - in spite of the name. Courtesy of sk8viking. 150207

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottled@vPBF2012. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy and floral hops mostly. Flavour is grassy bitter hops with some slight floral notes. This is just shite overhopped effing shit. No balance whatsoever. This is the kind of hops I feel is just so yesterdays (=overhopped) news. I need more balance into what I like with just more than doing the hops.

Bottled. Deep golden, creamy head. Big grapefruity hop aroma. Clean, rounded, rich, solid maltiness. Very hoppy with extremely bitter finish that turns to ink.

Tasting at Jack’s RAH Annexe! Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Airy malts, trace of caramel. Hops are lovely light pine, mild skunk, spicy tropical fruits. Light airy finish. Delicious!

Bottle at home ... Crisp clear amber ... sweet resiny pin hop nose... sweet resins ... quiet intense pine ... very juicy ... hides its 8% well ... light bitter linger ... but its sweet juicyness goes down a treat.

Bottle @ Brugsmania/Fonefan US Tasting, April 2010. Pours hazy yellow with floaties and a small creamy lasting head and lacings. Nose is various fruity and tropical US hops. Kiwi and pine and a bit of yeast. Sticky, dry and very refreshing and bitter. Full bodied. Really a rare and different hop combination/profile. Nice
