COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a slightly hazy like orange color with a bubbly white head. Wow I smell the hops! There are 8 types of hops in this and I can smell all 8. Aroma of spice, citrus, pine sap and flowers. Flavor is very sappy with lots of hops and pine needles. Finishes dry and bitter.

Aurelius (4229) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2011
A sweet, orange-vanilla aroma with pineapple and hop resin. Misty, apricot colored beer with an oatmeal head. Good label on a standard US longneck. Woody, briny, good hop kick, a creamy presence in the top of the palate, a little sulphur. Alcohol sting in the finish, substantial mouthfeel. Complex, intense, but not over the top. Creamy mouthfeel. New Leaf Market.

Bottle. Pours copper with small off-white head. Cool sweet hoppy aroma with lots of pineapple and citrus...one of the most inviting aromas I have ever experienced. Taste is less sweet than anticipated from aroma, still quite hoppy but more of an earthy hop. Nice full mouthfeel. Slight lingering bitter finish.

On tap at Proof, poured as a sample, a great grapefruit hopped up pine aroma, Im getting a bit of a metallic flavor out of it, almost gritty and overdone, nice, but not my cup of tea.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2011
2/13/11. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazed burnt orange pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces a little. Huge grapefruit and tropical fruit aroma with a solid bite of bitterness. Sweet grapefruit and tropical flavor with a big bitter kick in the finish. Really quite tasty... reminds me of Hopslam in many ways.

PorterPounder (5591) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Fresh sprucey aroma with hints of fruit salad. Medium sparkling orange pour with a sticky off-white head that leaves a nice thin coat of lacing. Juicy flavor with some caramel sweetness, some honeydew melon fruitiness, just a hint of grapefruit bitterness. Back end of juicy fruit gum. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Very impressed.

Tap at Redlight. Pours a dark gold with a thin white head. Huge resiny, citrus hop aroma, really nice. Taste is smooth malt that balances really well against the citrus hop bitterness. This is a really nice IPA.

22 oz. bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! This one was a gusher upon opening and took a while to settle down. Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold color with a massive eggshell white head. Aroma of caramel malts, herbal hops, tea, lemon citrus, and sugar. The flavor is pretty much spot on with the aroma. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Drinks more like an IPA with some body than a DIPA, as the bitterness factor is pretty low here. Im glad this was nice and not showing infection despite gushing so much.

Bottle; Pour is dark copper - the head is basically white in color and it has an average retention in this tulip. Floral bouquet of hops is present, but this brew has a heavy caramel malt feel, as well. The caramel malt character is slightly heavier on the nose , than on the tastebuds. Anyway - Thank you to the guy at wallys for the recommendation.
