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.

Beautiful orange color. Great citrus and pine aroma, and very clean bitter finish. You can’t even taste the alcohol. Excellent DIPA.

My rate is definitely skewed on this as it was a nitro pour so it added a lightness and fuller mouth-feel. That being said it was god damn creamy fabulousness. Hoppy and dry cascading bubbles let the flavor resonate perfectly. MMMMMMMMM.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Full and malty with a wicked huge off-white head and more lacing than a wedding dress. Redolent with resiny hops and a long bitter finish. If you could call an imperial IPA balanced, this is it. Huge amount of malt; huge amount of hops. All of it pleasing to the eye, nose and mouth. I could live on this stuff. Aroma is somewhere between pine, grapefruit and bong water (but in a good way). Git cho Mojo on!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Pours golden w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth. Full ring residual lacing. Aroma of bright grapefruit citrus rind. Medium full nectar w/ soft and creamy residual effers. Huge hopsy citrus trees form the general disposition here w/ a moderate malt backbone. Theres a citrus tree in every bottle. A mild sweetness factor is not abused but makes it very tastey indeed. Suculent and addictive. This mild sweetness is like a candy necklace kind of flavor, not thick and cloying. Very interesting. Cramel, leather, vanilla bean, only slight grapefruit (more rind), candy necklace. The finish is well bittered w/ asprin that digs in and lingers. Very rich but not overdone. Well balanced and the alcohol is well hidden. Highly recommended.

A fully-hopped, and surprisingly pale for the strength double IPA. Plenty of hops are added to balance the disinctly sweet malt in this extreme beer. I concur with the brewer that the hops have contributed a citrus flavor most similar to grapefruit. I also concur with Cletus with respect to the touch-of-honey finish. A unique offering in the ever-expanding high-gravity market.

Very well done DBL IPA. Hops are there but a lot of sweetness from the malt/residual sugars. Head about 1 finger wide, deep amber color, not hazy. For a 10%er I didnt rely notice the alcohol in the taste or nose. But it was definitely there, Ahhhhhhh.
