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…

Bottle at home. Pours hazy reddish amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet fruity and sweet berries with notes of malt and spicy hops. The flavour is sweet malty with spicy hoppy notes. Berries and spicy jam. Long fruity finish. Great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Treated as an American Strong Ale, this was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a thin white head that dissipated at a nice pace. Messy lacing ran around the glass nicely. The smell started off with some big smooth toffee to caramel sweet malts. Ruddy leafy tobacco flavors come in and dry out the aroma. The flavor copies the smell nicely. Definitely, dry tobacco, toffee and caramel over top of some citrus and piney hops. Dried tobacco/citra aftertaste and smooth dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice smooth sipping quality about it. Overall, this was a good American Strong ale that I think I could come back to.

hotstuff (4839) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Rated on 7-15-2015 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small smooth beige head that mostly diminished, hazy amber body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is piney hops, caramel malt and fruity. The flavor is moderate bitterness, piney hops, fruity, caramel malt. This beer is medium bodied. This beer is not too hoppy tasting for the style and is a sipping beer. This beer is worth trying and definitely a beer that I would drink again.

AirForceHops (5971) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2015
650 ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Amber like color with some lasting head. Aroma is caramel toffee note, pine and citrus like hops.

The body of this beer is thick, sticky and sweet texture. Just a huge amount of caramel, toffee and sugar. The hops are here without question, pine and grapefruit with lasting bitterness after the sip. Honestly this brew feels dated, like in 2005 or 2006 this was a big killer brew, now it just seems like a overly sweet, sticky, massively hopped malt bomb. I’m leaning away from any IPA with a caramel malt base, I prefer a lighter clean grain bill.

thedm (5551) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated opaque except at the edges dark red brown colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The sharp mild citrus vinous crisp mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of bitter mild citrus vinous crisp hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

monk191 (1707) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2015
A nice imperial red. Pours a muddy red with a disappearing white head. Smells of fruit, vanilla and hops Taste is similar, a good amount of vanilla with a well balanced bitter finish. Pairs well with rogue creamery smokey blue. Had in the bottle.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2015
On tap at the brewery after EBF 2015. Pours a hazed tawny brown with a thin beige head. Malt, earthy hops. Medium bodied, sweet and boozy. The alcohol and the overly sweet malt are intrusive and dominating. Long bitter finish carrying over some of the sweetness from the malt. Too sweet for me to enjoy overmuch.
