What else? What else would you expect from us, a bunch of severely hop obsessed brewers, to celebrate such a glorious occasion? Anything other than a massively hopped IPA would be an affront to our rich history of loving excessive use of that beautiful flower, Humulus Lupulus.
1993-2013. 20 years of brewing excellence. To all who have played a part in creating such a vibrant and quality conscious culture, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and pint glasses!!
Availability: Bottled in May 2013. One and done.

Tmoney99 (12987) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy complex citrus and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange with a lasting slightly off white head. Smell is candied oranges, citrus, hint of dank, juicy, sweet. Taste is really smooth. Big juicy tangerine, candied, citrus, hops oil, fresh. Oily mouth with the alcohol not showing up for me. Lingering sweet and medium bitterness with a bit of dank on the finish. Very nice.

thome50 (1265) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at FWIBF. Pours an orange with small white head. Aroma is not overly there. Some mild hop, citrus, grass. Taste is orange liqueur. Done. Some mild bitterness, malt and the sweetness. Definitely feel the alcohol. Just not something I could stand to drink much of.

M82 (466) - Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
22oz bottled mid May @ 50º into 14.7oz Zwiesel cognac snifter; Off-white head with several large soapy bubbles supported by a thick, tightly structured base leaving multiple peninsulas, thin islands, and spots of lace over a vibrant clear amber body; Sticky sweet citrus, pine, and spice merging into solid background notes of floral-earthy-onion; Sticky mmh, well carbonated body leaving a drying citrus and pine mouth; rich and hoppy, but I guess I was expecting something more memorable

nocsimian (11) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle. A nice thick white head forms on the pour. Crystal clear with an orange/honey hue. Super clear. Head lasts and leaves plenty of lacing and legs. Aroma is intense hops with both pine and grapefruit coming to the forefront. Cascade and Amarillo are present. Flavor is dominated by hops so much that I even though I know there’s malt there, I have a hard time picking it up. The honey malt provides some sweetness undertones. Body is light and finish is extremely sharp and biting.

Ughsmash (7501) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bomber. Poured crystal-clear, lighter golden with a lovely cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up fresh pine, grapefruit, and peppery hoppage over biscuity notes, caramel, and a touch of vanilla.. big and very welcoming. The flavor found sweet caramel and biscuity notes again at the core, with very high black pepper, pine, and citrus bitterness laced throughout.. transitions were OK, but it was a little green and sharp at times.. finished spicy with lots of residual hops and belly warmth. Medium-plus bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. not the smoothest, most consistent flow, but it was a very solid brew overall.

Tide (2695) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Draught at bar. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, floral hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit and nuts. Smooth, flavored body with hops. Bitter finish with grapefruit and pine. Awesome imperial IPA.

wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bomber poured into a tulip; pours clear amber with a small white head. Nose is citrus, peach, grapefruit, hops. Flavor follows with a nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. Not as bold as some other DIPAs I’ve had, but overall very good.

rajendra82 (1021) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Classic DIPA look, with clear, amber colored body, two finger thick durable head, and gentle carbonation streamer. the smell was a little subdued (for the style), with hay, grapefruit, and honeydew melon in the nose, but not an assault. The taste delivered more hops than the nose hinted at, with a tropical fruit (apricot, persimmon, mango) flavor, followed by some herbs (mint, parsley, coriander) and a decent amount of sweet malt backing. Quite sticky and soft in the mouth, with not much of a carbonation zing. It’s a good, gentle DIPA, for a late night relaxing. Not a bruiser.

Draught at Porter Bar. Nice hoppy Double IPA with orange body and overall taste of pine and grapefruit. Slight malt body. Really well done.
