COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale ale hopped to the extreme! This beer starts out as a nice pale ale until it reaches the kettle. Throughout the course of the 90 minute boil four massive hop additions are made which transform this beer into a hop-head's dream come true. Both Chinook and Tomahawk hops from the Yakima valley are added in extreme quantities for the maximum bitterness, flavor and aroma.

Chalsk (1017) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2011
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours an amber orange color with an off-white foam head. An aroma of grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Sweet caramel taste with a smooth hop hit. Resiny bite on backend.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Tap at Pacific Standard. The pour is a hazy, poo orange with no head and no lace. Probably the ugliest IPA Iíve ever seen. The aroma is all stale hoppy with cheese and rotting berries. Taste is dry, soapy, muddy, just on the grasping edge of IPA. Sucked dick.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle served in a tulip. Excellent pour. Dark orange-brown with a light beige head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is not great. Soy sauce with some grassy hop bitterness, and a little skunk. Salty, bitter flavor. Medium body, soy again on the sticky middle, and an astringent finish. This is either a bad bottle or a bad IPA. Canít recommend.

355 ml bottle. 5.5%. From Seattle, WA, USA.
Hazy light brown colour with tiny to small off-white head. Sweet caramel malty aroma with dark bitter hops. Dark bitter hops, grapefruit and some malt sweetness in rather balanced flavour.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Orange amber, creamy compact head. Aroma of citrus fruit, light pine, and a little plastic. Sweet toffee malts, citrus rind, resin, and a little band-aid plastic note. Finishes with astringent green-stick bitterness. I think this is on the verge of being past its prime, with the plasticcy phenols lurking in here.
