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 Elliott’s mustache. The beer is light amber in color, and features a strong caramel and Vienna malt backbone to complement those intense hops.

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.

Pour from a 16z can. Nice amber color with a solid head and nice lacing. Clean hop aroma that eludes to the piney hops that lay ahead. Well balanced with a clean malt backbone. Citrus and pine hops are the star here, and star they do. Beer would be better with a bit more carbonation. I think the hops would pop a bit more and reduce the hot alcohol. Great brew, ABW. Keep em coming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bold, cloudy orange in color with a yellowish/off-white colored head. Bold, with a strong, sweet, hoppy aroma that’s fruity and almost tropical. It smells thick and fresh. Very earthy in the mouth, light but still bold enough with hop stickiness and resinousness prevailing. Good god, it’s good. Intense with hops, but so soft that it’s sessionable beyond belief. Me gusta!

(16oz can thanks Trey) cloudy bright rustic gold, soapy tan bubbles that last. Nose is very tropical, pineapple, candied citrus Peel, lightly oniony, dank. Taste of pineapple, onion more prominent as it warms, quite dank, creamy body, lasting dank finish.

bbcd (214) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
hazy golden amber with a small (almost pathetic, really) fizzy white head. poor retention and no lacing. mango, pineapple, apricot, papaya, tangerine, resin, caramel, honey, flowers. very bitter, very sweet, slightly spicy. full body, thick and oily feel that coats your tongue, light carbonation, long bitter finish. i sort of feel like there’s more going on in the aroma than there needs to be, but it reminds me a lot of maharaja which is my #1 double ipa that i just ran out of, so im a happy camper. of what i’ve had, this is austin beerworks’s strongest offering.
