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.

HonkeyBra (3523) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours an orangish golden color with a bright white head. Aroma of big hops. Lots of pine, citrus, gum ball, and grapefruit hops. Flavor is quite bitter and delicious. Lots of hop bitterness and fruity sweetness. Quite delicious. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Lots of bitter delicious hops in the finish. Wonderful DIPA.

Draft. Hard to distinguish nuances in the nose due to fat ass next to me smoking cigars. Really. Take that shit somewhere else. Piney and resiny. Finishes with a drying slight astringency. Excellent hop flavor but somewhat muddled by a nondescript malt sweetness. Gonna kick that guy with the cigar. ---Rated via intercellular device

Jur (372) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle on the couch. Fairly light yellow-orangey pour, clear. Thick bright white head, which persists quite nicely. Nose is full of citrus (blood orange?) and HOPS! Lovely full and rich flavour; mild caramel, apricot, hoppy herbs - even a little prickly on the tongue - boozy bitter finish. Well balanced. Very good.

anderson01 (210) - Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Cloudy in appearance. Orange in color with a frothy white head. Lacing looks like snow-covered mountains. Strong hoppy aroma. There is a hint of citrus in the aroma. First thing i tasted was peaches. Smooth texture with a creamy finish. Banana in the taste. Full-bodied beer with average carbonation. This is the first beer i have ever tasted with peaches. This was an awesome beer.

Real celebration for IPA lovers. The only thing I feel sorry about - I had only one bottle :)

bob_w (327) - new york, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2013
aggressive hoppy aroma. malty flavor standing up to the hops, and a bit of a licorice note. malt sweetness and bitterness, on first take, the malt sweetness trumps the bitterness, but the hops take over in the finish.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours light orange in color mostly clear with a small white head. Aroma brings pleasant soft lemon and floral notes. Body is dry with some citrus zest flavors and a zingy citrus ending. The booze is blended in there we’ll, but noticeable.

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap at Avery. Pours a mostly clear yellow orange with very fine, white head. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, piney, floral. Flavor is hoppy, piney, strong citrus in the finish. Quite resinous, alcohol is well masked. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and crisp texture, mildly oily finish. A very good Imperial IPA.
