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!

callmemickey (3566) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Cloudy amber-orange body. Large offwhite head. Decent retention and lacing. S: Grapefruit bitterness is dominant. Some floral and pine notes complement it well. Slight malt backbone shines through. Slight alcohol presence as well. T: Massive grapefruit taste. Larger than expected out of a standard IPA. Plenty of pine bitterness. Balanced some by a nice malt backbone that knows its job is to not get in the way of the hops. Nice bitter finish. M: Smooth, medium body. Crisp, dry finish. O: Solid, large IPA. I was impressed and was glad my friends and I were able to grab the last three bottles before they ran out at the unveiling in Philly.

Tangerine, pineapple, rosehip, and grapefruit bouquet. Clear amber, medium yellow lacing head. Full bodied and somewhat resinous. Overripe orange and grapefruit peel. Finishes with crackers and grapefruit peel. Hyper-hopped, but the maltiness is big as well. The multiple varieties of hops really come through more in the aroma than the flavor. Good job.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2011
35,5 cl bottle @ Golden Garden, Hiroshima. BBE 01.10.2011 (02/2012 on the sticker). Rated on 13.09.2011
Sweet and sugary aroma with exotic fruits and some resin. Flavour is sweet with fruits and some resin. Lots of hops. Once again too sweet DIPA, but the fruity hops are nice though.

mezr (59) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Poured from a 22 oz bottle, it has a fresh pine scent. The medium head dissipates slowly and leaves light lacing on the glass. Not quite golden and not quite amber ... itís color is somewhere in between, and very clear. Taste is medium bitter, and its texture is a bit more thick than I would expect from a DIPA. The finish is long and complex. Overall its not a "great" beer, but itís certainly an enjoyable one.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours orange with a big fluffy head which paints the inside white with lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a zest of orange peel. Flavor taste like orange marmalade. There is a slight delay and then BAM the bitterness hits. Just like when you take a bite out of a red chili pepper and you wait those few seconds before the burn hits. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Good DIPA.

evergreen0199 (2331) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Keg at Euston Tap, London. A golden/amber coloured pour with a decent off white head on top. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Tastes malty, tropical fruit, hoppy, grapefruit and some bitterness. It was served too warm IMO and was certainly not what I expected. Need to have this again.

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour. The nose has sultanas with an earthy, malty background, The taste has initially some grapes going into apricots, then earthiness and spice - parsnip and beetroot come to mind. The palate is medium in structure, which continues through the texture and an extremely bitter finish. Overall, great for the hop-heads, but slightly too bitter for me to want more than one. Itís got a lot of taste going on, but that doesnít mean itís very tasty.
