COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a BIG beer. We basically took the Hoppy Feet recipe and multiplied everything by 1.5. This created a wonderfully unique beer that has a deeper malt balance, bolder hop profile, and an extremely fresh aroma. When comparing to regular Hoppy Feet you will notice much sweeter malt notes mixed in with a more pronounced chocolate and dark fruit flavor. The malt flavors are balanced off with strong pine and citrus notes from the addition of A LOT of hops. This beer was actually dry-hopped not once but TWICE with each of the hop varieties (Columbus, Cascade, and Amarillo).

mile (2992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle (10%). Very dark brown - black, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some tropical fruitiness and roasted malt, lots of piney - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and dryish flavor, light fruitiness, roasted malt, light chocolate, lots of piney - some citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dry roasted malt, huge amounts of piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Really well hopped dry and roasted (black)IPA - no coffee/no caramel, only light alcohol (considering 10%) in the finish. I usually don’t enjoy IPAs over 8% - this one is exception.

Bottle. Black with a beige foam. Aromas are woody with burnt toast and soapy pine. Spritzy yeast with lemon and some floral notes. Coffee with dark chocolate and marzipan alcohol. Flavours are sweet cola with herbal notes and bittersweet grapefruit. Warming alcohol with good spiciness. Dark chocolate with some earthiness. Pine and lemon with a peppery finish. Very good.

MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bomber. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Aromas of chocolate, resin, and citrus-scented dish soap. Flavor is mostly resin and chocolate with a pretty boozy heat to it. It’s a little silky on the palate, which forms an odd combination with the boozy and resiny qualities.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle and served in my other NB Worthy glass: pours a very deep brown nearly opaque with a fading rocky head and very good lace. The aroma has characteristics of roast, toast, char, bittersweet chocolate, dank and piney hops (hello Columbus), and some medicinal and earthy vapours. The taste is resiny, catty, citric, roasty, burnt, and full of band-aid. If it wasn’t for the overwhelming medicinal qualities I could really dig this flavor profile. The mouth feel is brash yet chalky and ashy. A solid enough brew but seemed to be missing something.

sonnycheeba (3560) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque black with average, creamy beige head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is earthy and dank hops, figs, dates, caramel malt, faint vanilla, and light pine. Flavor is hops forward (medium bitterness) with good supporting sweet malt and dark fruit esters; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
In bottle, thanks Ben. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair light tan head. A massive hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, guava and grapefruit before dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is very well balanced. Lovely and nicely bitter.

BenH (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle. Black with a fair tan head. Massive fresh hop aroma, lots of pine, some grapefruit and guava, slightly soapy, some roast character in te background. Malt making itself a bit more present in the taste, some chocolate and coffee with lots of hops, mostly pine. Quite sweet with a long bitter finish. Delish

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 13, 2012
Botella de 650ml. Vaso de Pinta. Saboreada y compartida con Juanjo en jun´12. Brota marrón muy oscuro coronada por espuma beige con burbuja mediana. Capa bronceada, amplia y que se disipa lentamente. Maltas tostadas, trazos de chocolate y café en aromas y sabores. Aromas subyacentes de lúpulos amargos y fragancias de heno y lavanda. Amargo/dulce al primer sorbo seguido por un toque sutilmente picante y notas de fruta oscura verde. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada a alta. Leve astringencia en el intermedio. Textura de maltas tostadas en el paladar que resulta breve; surge un amargor de lúpulos resinosos y oléicos –predominando sobre las maltas- que permanece hasta el final seco. Moderado sabor tartárico afrutado en el retrogusto. Refescante y sabrosa. ABV bien enmascarado mientras se bebe pero, sin duda, presente en la cabeza. Buena cerveza. 22floz. bottle. Pint glass. Enjoyed on jun´12 (Shared with Juanjo). Pours very dark brown in color headed by beige, medium bubbled froth. Tan in color, thick, slowly dissipated, crown. Toasted malts, chocolate & coffee hues both in flavors & aromas. Underliying high-α hop aromas,hay & lavender fragancies too. Sweet/bitter ar fist sip followed by subtle spicy touch & green dark fruit notes. Medium body, moderate to high carbonation. Slightly astringent in the middle. Toasted malt texture to the palate. Just a brief illusion since resiny & oily hop bitterness –overwhelms malts- lingers into a dry bitter finish. Moderate fruit tartar on the aftertaste. Refreshing. ABV well masked while drinking but definitely present to your head. Nice beer.
