COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blessed be! Our ridiculously big, hoppy I.P.A. returns to the rapturous exaltations of worshippers far and near. Featuring Simcoe, Amarillo, and Columbus hops at an unheard of rate of over three pounds per barrel, with American pale and Belgian caramel malts providing a malty but dry pedestal upon which this hop fest rides until its long, lingering,hop-bittered finish. Beware this vengeful, Old-Testament God. Say your prayers…

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), - OCT 14, 2012
Hopfiger, schwer würziger Start. Dunkle, etwas klebrige Malznoten, Kräuter, der Hopfen gleibt konstant. Vollmundig, wenig süffig. Süß karamellig, konstant wie flüssiger Hopfen. Schokoladiges Finish. Ein gutes und intensives Bier, das durch seine Harmonie besticht. 9/11/9/12/11/13

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
’Imperial red ale’ so a kind of hybrid between Irish red and imperial IPA. Pale beige, creamy head quickly dissipating under influence of the alcohol, deep copper red colour, hazy. Powerful aroma of figues, cooked rhubarb, gin, cloves, leafy hops, tonic water, cognac, amaretto, grapefruit peel. Fruity sweetness, slick and resinous, medium carbo, citrus freshness, caramel malt base, ever more hoppy towards the end, soft and herbal at first but sharp and tonic water-like in the tail, lots of booze too, alcohol not well hidden, even a bit wry.

Aroma of malts, caramel, sweet fruits, raisins, hops. Flavour is sweet malty caramel and fruity, leading to a moderate bitter dry finish. Very much on the sweet malty side of DIPA.

Bomber. Pours a dark muddy brown amber color with no head. Nose is deep citrus with some pine and resin as well. Taste is bitter with strong alcohol up front and citrus, resin and pine in the background. Finish is bitter and moderately long, and ends on the same tasting notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a clear ruby red amber sort of body that supports a full tan head of foam. Nice looking beer. The aroma offers up resiny hops, floral hops, plum flavored gummy bears and some orange notes. The resiny hop aroma just keeps going despite the sweetness and this leads to resiny hoppy booze at the end of the draw. This taste is hoppy bitter and rich with sweetness. This is nice where there’s a pleasing mix of sweet malts, a dash of roasted malts, some fruity esters and then near robust levels of resiny pine like hops blended with bitter floral hops and some citrus hoppiness. Resiny hops and a sliver of roasted malts usher this to closure. This is coming together beautifully. Yum!

onceblind (4066) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Hazy dark auburn amber under a fluffy foamy light beige head. The nose smells like a sweet hoppy dream, with some caramel-covered grapefruit, some strong yet soft floral tones, gentle leafy resins, and a wee bit of tropical mango. The taste has a very forward bitterness with a lovely amount of pine and floral hop notes, tasty grampefruit, earthy citrus rind, a bit of earthy leafy hop resins, and a boozy caramel and amber malt body. Sweet flavor with a dry mouthfeel, and loads of hop bitterness.

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours ruddy copper with a beige head. Aroma of fruit hop and a touch of chocolate. Med body. Flavor is hoppy with fruit and citrus. Mild not-quite-roasty malt with a hint of chocolate. Finishes towards dry.
