COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Our bottle Robust Series gives all beer lovers an opportunity to try our most rare beers, previously available only on draft at select tap houses. Enjoy! Get the Point!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy gold amber, with a small white head. Smells of big grapefruit hops, very floral, with citrus fruits in the background. The hops were fairly bitter, alot of that grapefruit, but nicely balanced here for a double IPA. The finish is pretty sweet, I get some brown sugar left on the palate and on the lips. The hops are definitely big, but there are other flavors as well, which made this beer quite enjoyable.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Thanks to Weeheavy for the bottle. Amber/orange color. Smell of hops, pine cones, grass, grapefruit, apricots, kiwi, minor caramel, malt and spice. Taste of lucious hops, malt, grapefruit, apricots, caramel, pine, earth, alcohol and a nice bitterness. Its a great Double IPA but a little light for me.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2007
22 oz bottle traded with drewbeerme. Pours an orange yellow tall white head. Nose is really nice. Grapefruit/pine/carmel characteristics of a great IIPA. Medium bodied smooth carmelly and a little sticky. More of those PNW hops sweet carmel balanced well with a strong pine bitterness. Refreshing brew.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2007
A slightly hazed light orange pour with a nice white head. An aroma and flavor that are dominated by the hops. The flavor has some malt but the hops carry this big muther through. A very good mouthfeel that compliments the hops and malt of this beer. very damn good.

tever (15) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium off white head. Very pleasant aroma of fresh grapefruit and pineapple. More grapefruit in the flavor, grass, pine, some malty sweetness, and a nice mild bitterness to the finish. Really don’t notice the alcohol in this. Very crisp on the palate with light carbonation. Very good iipa.
