COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Pours dark copper with 1 and 1/2 inch off-white head. Loads of lacing. Aroma is mostly yeast. Little bit of hops and malt. Not a typical IIPA aroma. Flavor is also very yeasty but the resiny hop flavor is also well pronounced. Complex flavor with dark fruit, spices, and caramel, Heavy body which is a big plus for this beer. Chewy mouthfeel. Boozy on the finish. Astringency in the aftertaste. Very good beer, however, I think it would be better suited in the american strong ale category due to the lack of hop aroma and bitterness associated with IIPAs. Great beer, just mis-categorized.

DuffMan (7991) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Guest tap at Fat Head’s in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold, dense creamy head (looks like a nitro head). Sweetly malty, lightly toasty, with stonefruit hops, a bit of citrus. I don’t mind the maltiness, but it’s too sweet for my liking, even despite the bitterness.
