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.

Re-Release? thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a hazed golden orange hued body and a large white head. Great lace and retention Hoppy aroma with marmalade, citrus, pine, and lightly tropical. Medium crystal, mild esters. Alcohol evident. Flavors are citrusy, mild toasted malt, a bit sticky, floral, tropical, pretty dry. A bit malt heavy for my tastes, but not bad at all. Medium body fuller carb.

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.

Poured an orangish amber color with aromas of dank hops, light caramel, big pine and resin notes as well. Flavors were light malt then punched in the mouth with hops. Big pine and resin flavors with some light citrus and tropical fruit notes. A solid beer where the abv is hidden well.

Ridiculously good. That’s 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.

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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy golden color with a one finger white foamy head that leaves some light clingy lacing. There is some light carbonation softly moving up. The smell was sweetened pine with a nice allocated caramel lightly touching the nose together. The taste was sweet and bitter bursting through fairly harsh on the taste buds. There is a good bittersweet pine aftertaste leading into a dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium on the body. This one’s got the right amount of carbonation for a DIPA to have an ample amount of bitterness to lead to a great harshness on the tongue and mouth, ABV - what ABV, I barely notice it, what great drinkability. Overall, this is a very well done DIPA well worthy of having again and I would love to have this again especially next time right outa the can as it would make a great beer to sip on while fishing on the pier.
