COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This monster of an IPA is loaded with Simcoe, Citra, and Ahtanum hops, giving it huge citrus and pine aromas that pack as much punch as Sam Elliottís mustache. The beer is light amber in color, and features a strong caramel and Vienna malt backbone to complement those intense hops.

Pours a hazy copper from the can with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is strong resinous hop funk, cat piss and grass, a hint of caramel malt. Taste follows, resinous hoppy awesomeness with a bitter finish. Medium carbonation, a bit of a burn on the way down. Wow, this is pretty darn good.

Ridiculously good. Thatís all you need to know. Too delicious to believe. Floral hop aroma with a punch to tickle the nose hinting at the medium-full body. Flavor is a hopsickle. Perfect. Smooth, awesome, delicious, flavorful. Best DIPA I can remember since the Conductor.

The smell of Citra is throughout. It starts off sweet with caramel and intense hoppiness but mellows out after. Itís a very smooth drinking DIPA and itís worth finding and drinking it again.

In 16oz can courtesy my son's Austin trading partner. Pours clear a golden slightly orange with an off white head and medium lacing. Moderate carbonation with a crisp and slick mouthfeel. The aroma is of citrus and pine with a touch of orange peel. The taste starts with crisp hop bitterness quickly balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Finish is of moderate hop bitterness and lingering notes of carmel. Outstanding beer. Frighteningly drinkable with little alcohol heat to bely it's relatively strong ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Austin gotz hops aplenty in this monster can. Damn, wish I still drove a forklift so I could take the challenge. Think I may have switched my rating for #1 with this, but as I am a terrible rater and NOBODY should read mine, whatís the dif, eh? I look forward to ALL in this series.

Can thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with small creamy white head leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus. Thick mouthfeel with strong pine, resin, dank and light pineapple. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well. Very impressive IIPA.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Grapefruit and lots of pineapple aroma. Some orange, bread, caramel, mango, and pine. A hint of apricot, too. Not much bitterness to the flavor. Some pine, grapefruit, and a lot of fruit. Pineapple, orange, and sweet caramel malt. Light mango and apricot.
