A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

AdolfoCC (146) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 9, 2016
Servida en un Spiegelau IPA. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar, con destellos naranjas y ligeros marrones a contraluz, se observa cristalina y una alta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco de buena retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. AROMA: se alcanzan a percibir los lúpulos de características cítricas y herbales sin embargo no es tan intenso, se percibe el dulzor de maltas con ligeras notas a caramelo. SABOR: las notas cítricas como cáscara de toronja y ligeramente herbal de los lúpulos se percibe, además de notas a caramelo de las maltas, se alcanza a sentir el alcohol en boca pero no es agresivo; en el retrogusto queda un amargor medio-ligero, con sensación cálida en garganta por el alcohol. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio, sensación oleosa y algo así como de sirope, carbonatación media. RESUMEN: IPA de la vieja escuela, no muy de mi agrado.

Bottle. Dark color for an IPA. Nice hoppy balance with a smooth finish. I've had 70 minute IPA. I guess that extra 30 minutes was well worth the wait. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

akoeninger (653) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2016
A beautiful beer, this is all about the dance between hops and malt, bitter with a large amount of caramel, herbal, boozy notes. Smooth, we’ll balanced, and hides the alcohol well

danielst (319) - AUSTRIA - APR 18, 2016
12 oz bottle. This is a decent double IPA, although it could be hoppier (wish I could find a bottling date). It is fairly malty for the style, although not cloyingly caramel sweet and you definitely can’t tell it is 9%.

One of my favorite DIPA’s so far, beautiful glass of beer, nice color great head retention, aroma gets better as it warms as do the individual flavor notes. This beer is still tasty at room temperature! Great malt choices blend with the hops to produce a very smooth, high bitter nutty flavor finish that keeps you asking for another round. Have to check myself with this beer as it can put a decent buzz on you fast.
