COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

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.

Serapac (145) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 24, 2014
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 (207) - 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.

Tselloufc88 (174) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
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.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours amber with a light haze. Aromas are cream cheese and chive, resin, pine. Taste is bitter, more citrus-like notes coming through, pithy. Oily texture, bitter finish. Nice.

sirsledz (16) - POLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Very cloudy like water in a puddle. In aroma a lot of herbs and tropical fruits, especially grapefruit, herbs. Nice lacing on glass, head is white, fine bubbles. In taste also very hoppy, more herbal that citrusy. Beer is heavy, not very drinkable. High bitterness, maybe little note of alcohol.

Bottle (gift from friend). So sedimenty it looks like brown soup! Flavour & aroma of candied orange peel, mango & grapefruit.

Cask at La Bona Pinta BCN. Pours amber with lasting healthy head. Begins sweet with citrus and malt touches. Hops in abundance, a great ale.

Buczer (272) - Pabianice, POLAND - SEP 15, 2014
bottle, pours very hazy, amber with off-white, stable head. Not intense fruity, sweet aroma. Tastes more like imperial ipa, medium sweetness with moderate bitterness and little bit of alcohol. Some hoppy, fruity notes. Short bitter aftertaste, thick feel, soft carbonation, alcohol is bit warming in throat.
