COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Imperial IPA shows no mercy! Made with five different Northwest hops and 50 pounds of honey, this beer comes at you from every angle. Citrus aroma, sweet honey, balanced with a hoppy finish.

Roasty, smoke mixture of citrus flavors forward that lingers on the soft palate cascading down the palatine pillers with a slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Excellent I IPA.

On tap at Pine Box. West coast hops dominate aroma - earthy bitterness dominates the palate. A little unbalanced, but big on flavour (and booze).

Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Sample at Über Tavern. Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrusy with hops and malt notes. Full-bodied with a moderately bitter hops and grapefruit character, with some grainy malt in the background. The finish briefly hoppy then ends sweet with honey and malt. Decent overall.

Tap at Backwoods, Carson, 24/05/13. Clear dark amber with a thin beige head. Nose carries hop notes, caramel, sugars, orange, many of the right notes but a little on the thin side for a 10% DIPA. Taste comprises caramel malts, sugars, hops, orange pith, bitter grapefruit. Full bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable DIPA but a little dumbed down, no real depth or punch to this one, alchocol was well hidden if indeed it was 10.1% as per the beer list! As I found with most of the Backwoods beers, it was drinkable but some way short of being top draw, glorified good level home brewing to be blunt!
