Brewed with 8 different hops and dry hopped with whole cone Cascades. Its more powerful than our Islander IPA and even the most intelligent have become "idiot" after a few pints of this super hopped up beer!

12 oz. bottle from Berkeley Bowl. It pours a pretty rich orange/gold color with a creamy off white head. The aroma jumps out with a lot of Cascade character. Florals, grapefruit, orange, a little pine and hints of caramel. The flavor is potent with floral and fruity hops that move into more of a piney bitterness. Caramel is fairly apparent, but subdued enough to not be a major distraction. Alcohol is pretty strong as is the bitterness in the finish. Florals and orange are the major hop flavors here and it strikes me as kind of over simplified. Not bad. Maybe a touch estery, which isn’t so nice. Decent, but a bit over rated IMO.

AirForceHops (3427) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle without any bottling code. Purchased at Julio’s. Orange / amber color with soapy lacing. Aroma is mostly pine with light notes of floral and grapefruit type hops.

The flavor is herbal pine, caramel malt, very weak traces of citrus. The texture is on the chewy, bready character with a solid pine bitterness. No ABV noticeable and has a lengthy bitter bite. Pretty classic West Coast DIPA. For not knowing the age of the bottle, this is solid.

Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Bright golden color, thick white head. Massive hops aroma and massive bitterness, too much for my taste. Unbalanced.
