We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

leebotton (284) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Very blueberry fruity aroma with apricot, pures hazy amber with a very small white head. Looks like cloudy apple juice. Mouthfeel is strikingly thick and sudden bitter and bright orange like flavours soon give way to a lingering bitter graininess and dirty hay with the juice of some yellow fruit spilt unevenly upon’t. The flavour is complex and later leads to a more marmitey essence. There could almost be said to be a bit too much different stuff going on but of course this would be purely down to personal opinon and preference. To me, the flavours seem to clash a bit within itself but what is certain is that this beer is subtantial on many levels. The texture of the liquid itself is reassuringly wholesome and at 7% it doesn’t slip through your brain-veins without effect. More of a pleasant kineasthetic and psychological experience than a straight up flavour sensation but still a winner.

Fashawn (353) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAR 10, 2015
Flavour had plenty more fruits, with the pineapple and the grapefruits to the fore, balancing with caramalt, and dry at the finish.

gasparino (3) - valmontone, ITALY - MAR 5, 2015 does not count
Bevuta freschissima alla spina, ben spillata con un cappello di schiuma pannosa e persistente color avorio, colore dorato carico leggermente velato al naso č esplosiva, l’aroma di luppolo si sente ad un metro di distanza, note sia erbacee che fruttate ed agrumate, al palato le note maltate fanno capolino ad inizio corsa per poi essere sommerse dai sapori decisi dati dalla imponente luppolatura, ideale per gli Hop addicts! L’amaro del finale č deciso e persistente senza mai essere fastidioso. Grande IPA in stile Yankee!

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 No aromat niesamowity, cytrusy, białe owoce, lekko żywiczny, owocowy, słodowy z lekkim alkoholowym finiszem. . Barwa ciemnej pomarańczy, zmętnione konkretnie. Piana bardzo ładna, utrzymuje się cały czas niewielką warstwą i pozostawia ładny lacing. W smaku jest tak jak w aromacie, to co ma urywać zostało już urwane przy pierwszym niuchu. Jest owocowo, goryczkowo, słodowo, potem znowu goryczka która jest dość długa. Gdzieś na początku czuć przez chwilkę alkohol, ale w przyjemny sposób. Wysycenie średnie, półpełne. Bardzo dobre.

On tap, Luppol 12, Rome. Very cloudy light brown, off-white head. Aroma fresh bread, perhaps some honey. Quite full body, taste bread again and hops. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

koshack (438) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Piękna drobna, biała piana. Trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemnozłoty, mocno zmętnione. W aromacie amerykański chmiel. Bardziej żywiczny, niż cytrusowy, lekkie słodkie pomarańcze. Aromat "mocny" zapowiada alkohol. W smaku średnia goryczka, miło złamana słodową kontrą. Pozostawia posmak goryczkowy, ale jest przyjemny, miesza się ze słodkością. Wyczuwalny alkohol, ale nie nachalnie. Bardzo dobre piwo degustacyjne, pije się powoli.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Very cloudy, almost muddy appearance. Off white head. Aroma of pine, tropical fruits, grapefruit. Taste is fruits, a bit of malt background and a surprisingly low bitter finish for the strength. The smoothness is a plus. Good, but a touch soupy. Would drink again.
