Whatever this beer is lacking in taste is made up for in the punch packed. Potent stuff.

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Great IPA! Poured slightly cold with a giant, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream-colored head that lasts a long time and plenty of lace. Color is a hazy, medium amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is an aromatic blend of hop, caramel, malt, fruit. Flavor’s like nose has hop bitter up front, followed smartly with caramel, toffee, malt, fruit sweetness and a little carbonation. Body is good with carbonation a tad light. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and very drinkable.

22 oz. from Chuck’s. Great IPA and different from the citrus ones I usually go for. Smells great, like fresh pine and resin. Super sticky lacing. This beer tastes so good and full. Another commenter hinted that the beer includes rye. If so, I’m a total convert. Another dastardly drink from Dick.

Mix of hops and malt in the aroma. Hazy red orange color with a small white head. Sweet beginning with a sharp bitter middle that fades in the finish.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 3, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #203. Dark amber/copper pour with a thin off-white head. Light pine and some decent citrus aromas going on here, although the are fading just a bit. A little sweet and medium bitterness that sticks to the tongue pretty good, nice IPA. (1705)

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight brown hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is a combination of strong pine with a strong sweet grain and biscuit backbone. Flavor begins with sweet grains but has a growing pine backbone as well as a hint of grapefruit.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bomber. Hazy orange-amber pour with an off-white head leaving a coarse lace. Chocolate cake nose with a sweet start and bitter, cheese finish. Middle is cocoa with some pine hops. Medium-heavy body with light carbonation. Not a great IIPA, but this bottle may be past its prime
