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.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Aroma of citrus, and perhaps floral, hop. Amber color with an off-white head that laced a bit. Starts with medium body, mild carbonation, and floral hop to die for. The finish is nicely bitter. Forgot to notice the malt, but on reflection it was there. The effect is to make the mouth want to stand up and dance. It is drinkable liquid hop. More so than some so-called DIPAs. As the label says, refreshingly bitter.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Amber/gold pour. Aroma is a mix of honey, floral and citrus hops. Flavor switches back and forth between a bit of sweetness and the prick of the hops. Pretty ok IPA. RIP Dick.
