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!

The aroma is very inciting with lots of malt and yeast and even more citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The appearance is amber gold with a huge foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but way to astringently bitter. The palate is right for the style. Overall one of those great smelling beers that just doesn’t have the taste to match.

Pours a clear amber color with a white soapy head. Aroma of lemon zest, pine, and caramel. Solid hop bitter flavor with some citrus and caramel sweetness. This one has a presence!

8oz sniffer at Urge Gastropub. 1 finger pretty off-white yellow tiny bubble head. pretty cold temp. Light orange apricote color. smelling of bitter bitterness and citrus. Bitter taste at start with a decent carmel malty base. Good strong bitter aftertaste of an DIPA. Alc is not very obvious. Overall 9 of 10.

craftycarl21 (2295) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2011
Hazy peach pour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma holds tons of ruby red grapefruit, pungent wet grass, pine, and a bit of Sculpin-like mango and other nectar fruit. Also the slightest touch of malt balance in the form of caramel and bread. Flavor is also quite nice, with lots more grass, some citrus, and some herbal presence. The malt character is slightly too much on the tongue, but still very tasty. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet with a nice bitter finish. Nice stuff.

Bottle, pours golden amber, fluffy white head. Hop aroma, taste of hop and malt. Decent.

DiarmaidBHK (3695) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2011
Pours amber with a thin white head and nice citrusy smells on the nose. Massive hop flavor on the tongue. Again then citrusy notes were well expressed. This beer lingers so long it’s as if your tongue has been placed in a vat of hops for 3 weeks. It’s not a subtle beer but then again it does come from California.

On tap at Misconduct Tavern. Orange/gold with thin white head. Aroma is grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit and caramel. Nice but unspectacular IIPA.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Snojerk321, poured into a tulip. Pours a deep amber/caramel brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is initially of piney resinous hops, pineapple, and grapefruit. As the beer warms, more of the sweet caramel malt comes to the front. Taste is bitter, with a lot of deep rich caramel sweetness - the balance is more in favor of sweet than bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation. Very nice IPA, but a little sweet and rich for me, I tend to like my IPA’s a bit more crisp and hop-forward.

Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Bottled, definitely a little bit old. However this was quite good, if it tastes this good when its old I would like to try this one fresh. It has a nice aroma, very citrusy, definitely the noticeable hop is the cascade, it is quite a nice mix of the hops and malt. Recommend a taste of this one

22 oz Bomber. Pours out an orange / yellow color. Fruity smelling with floral notes. Taste is sweet and smooth. Bitterness is there, but not overwhelming. Has some interesting tastes that I cant really pinpoint, but it makes it unique, which isnt a bad thing in this case. Decent, drinkable beer.
