COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doug Hyndmanís latest and greatest hoppy war hammer of an IPA. Five types of hops, five pounds in the dry hop - thereís a theme here. Chinook, CTZ, Centennial, Galena and Amarillo join forces, devastating your palate with their bitter deliciousness. Pungent. Clean. Unforgiving. Wonderful!

Chunky...can we get the grass clippings out of this beer? A bit malty with some definite hop character but absolutely forgettable. Just sort of muddled and blah...jousting is still a competitive sport...yeah I know...

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Iím pouring chunks out the of this can. Old? Canít tell. Lots of hop aroma, too much onion for me. Nice balance between the intense bitters and carmel malts. A little disappointing overall.

Pours out a beautiful amber with floral aroma and citrus grapefruit taste. Good beer could use more body

Tight tan head quickly falls. Cloudy amber in colour. Resin and citrus on the nose - a little floral in the end notes. Not detecting any malt in the nose. Round bittering with lifting carbonation. Earthy finish, nice lingering bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iíve had this beer from a can when itís been pretty good. Yet other times its variable. This one today is pretty poor. Cloudy orange-brown with debris (yeast?) from a can. Faint to no aroma. Bland taste. Not terrible, but not good either.

UncleKorm (746) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Can poured a muddy orange w/ a small quickly diminishing white fizzy head and minimal lacing. Average aroma orange and pungent hop. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a harsh bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are resin, flowers, dandelion, bitter melon, grass, and lemon. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and an astringent finish.

Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Can. Pours a murky orange copper with thin, light khaki head. Decent retention and some thin rings of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, floral, bitter, oily, mild citrus. Flavor is mildly hoppy, bitter, with citrus, juicy hops tones. Not as bitter as I had expected given the aroma, quite drinkable. Light to moderate carbonation, medium body, somewhat juicy, with a mildly crisp finish. A juicy, mild IPA.
