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.

Big can in a stem glass a while ago. Pours hazy golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of resinous and piney and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, dough/bread, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. A solid IPA, but could be more refined and have a nicer hop balance.

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.

Cybercat (4032) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours clear honey golden with a nice pale buff head. Aroma is strongly evergreen, like getting a good whiff of some fresh pine needles. Flavor is tres hoppy, evergreen and just a tad bitter, with citrus and malt hints. Firm body has good fizz and leaves an evergreen hop finish. Available only in Austin - or wherever a nice Austinite is sharing brewskis,

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.
