UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours slightly cloudy medium pale orange with minimal head. Aroma is minimal - mild pale malt and lighly fruity spicy hops. Taste is big, abrasive juicy caramel malt with assertive earthy piney hops on the finish. Sizable abv is evident. Maybe think of this as an imperial Big Eye? Wish they’d had this on tap at the brewery in SD when I visited earlier this year; I bet this would be better fresh.

Orangey smell and taste. Medium body and medium bitter finish. Pretty strong malt presence in the taste. Definitely not hop forward but above average ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle to snifter pours a clear medium amber orange color with white head and some decent lacing. the aroma yea you guessed it hops. mild to medium malt base which is nice lots of piney hops up front on the nose. the flavor holds true. lots of resinous and pine hops, medium bitterness start to finish. I get a mild alcohol burn on the very end. meaning it is well hidden. overall very good ipa with lots of flavor.

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and resin. Taste is bitter, of hops, resin, pine, and caramel notes leading to a dry, bitter finish.

On Draught
Pours a gold color with a good head and beautiful lacing on the glass

The aroma is floral and citrusy... hoop forward and inviting but surprisingly faint in some ways. It’s got a little dankness, maybe a little booze, but nothing to identify it in the double digits.

The flavor is a medium bitter with some light sweetness and a bigger than I normally dig on booze character. It’s got an odd mix of hop flavors and sensations herbal & floral for the most part, lightly fruity... sort of spicy...
All tighter just sort of all over the place.

I can see how this is an enjoyable beer for many people, I just don’t think that this is my kind of double IPA.

Big Piney IPA. Amber colored. Real resinous, caramel, sticky and boozy. A little much, but what else do you want in a big IPA.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with decent off white head. Nose is pine and maple. Lots of bitterness and alcohol in the taste. You can taste the 10%.
