COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Can you say Palate Wrecker? This double IPA comes in at 108 IBUs. As hoppy as it gets with a mouthful of citrus flavors. Grab one today and illuminate your tastebuds.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Pours a very hazy lemon amber with frothy white head. Aroma is very hoppy, notes of grapefruit and spruce. Flavor is a mix of grapefruit and bread with medium carbonation.

rabba9 (115) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle pours yellow orange with a light white head. Aroma is very citrus dominated with hints of peach and lemon. Some caramel malts but very muted. Very much a hop bomb with a lingering bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Will easily wreck your palate but excellent in moderation.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Hazed peach with a medium tan head that quickly dissipates leaving some splotchy lacing behind. Aroma of honey, apricot, bread and a verifiable plethora of hops with citrus and piney/woodsy/resinous faire. Taste is strongly hopped with citrus and resinous hops along with some crystal malt, but not enough to completely balance it out. Finishes up hop strong and bitter. Perhaps a bit too aggressive and abrasive but I’d rather error on the hop side and go along for the hoppy ride.

sunevdj (3479) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle at home from Kimber - Thanks!!! Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Smells of hops with a hint of resin. Tastes sweet and bitter with a fresh hopsprofile. Also has a sweet backbone of mildl caramel and tiny hints of spruce. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied. Bitter finish with more spruce. Nice!

I moved on from IPA’s a year ago, or so. Still, I enjoy them, but would never be my first choice.

JoeTheYounger (1166) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle, Clear golden pour with beige head. Aroma was citrus and pineapple. Taste was tropical fruits and was very bitter. Overall it was pretty good but a little too bitter for me.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle. Amber pour with a moderate white head. Aroma is pretty subdued, some sweet aromas and tangerine. Has a moderately heavy body with sweet and biscuity malt, more tangerine, general citrus. More malty and syrupy than I like my IIPAs.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
BillKismet (3501) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Copper body with decent head. Smells like this one has been aged. Nose like an American barleywine--candi hop and fruit. Nice candied hop sweetness and sticky malt flavors. Still, it doesn’t strike me as unbalanced. A big beer and enjoyable, just does not stand-out.

IndianaRed (2865) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle pours a clear light orange/amber. full dense pillowy white head. Huge pine/junniper/ grapefruit aroma. Flavors are a strong bitter piney hop front with a woody papery malt backbone. Bitter and plain and a lingering bite that says "108 IBUs"

pinkzambia (1682) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle: Clear copper color with a small white head. Aroma abounding with pine forest and juniper shrubs, egg farts, and citrus. Extreme hops, extreme bitterness - there isn’t as much as much sweetness that you expect from a 2IPA. It’s definitely much more of an in-your-face 2IPA. Nice bitter aftertaste that sticks around for a bit. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing!
