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!

A largely hoppy beer! Citrusy hops, karate kicking your nose. The huge bitterness is immediately apparent when ingested. I could stand with a bit more malt sweetness, but still very good when in the mood for something less sweet when on your hop quest. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Started as a 3 oz taster, progressed to a pint, then ended up a growler. I canít believe this is rated a 78 on the site. You people bitch about IPAs not being hoppy enough then you score a hop monster like this low. This is a crystal-clear, straight up hop bomb. Everything from grapefruit, pine, mint, just whole-hearted real hop character saturates this beer. Malts donít get in the way. This is one of the most blatant overusage of hops Iíve tasted in Colorado and it is glorious. Very clean, very unbalanced, but sure to satisfy a hophead.
Okay, I just wanted to note that my initial tastings of this were from draft. I have since purchased a few six packs of cans, and I have to say that itís not nearly as good. I canít put my finger on it, but the hop character isnít as clearly defined and thereís a hugely bitter finish without the full depth I get when I have this from tap. I have never before experienced such a consistent discrepancy between tap and can. I still drink Modus Hoperandi and Hop Notch all the time, but Hop Abomination just isnít the same. So I retract my calling out of all you who rated this poorly, but I am leaving my initial score to reflect the draft servings.

Can from Davidsonís liquor. Pouts orange with a very thin khaki head. Has some solid pine notes on the nose. A couple of solid grapefruit notes on the nose. Solid!

This is how an IPA should taste if it has the word "hops" in the title. It should have punch-you-in-the-face level hops. This beer does just that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange color, nose of bright citrus with a little sweetness. Taste is malt forward with some hop bite. Finish is a bit dry for an IPA. Not my cup of tea.

A good hoppy IPA.

This has become a favorite. Bought their Booty Box sampler and this has stayed a staple in my fridge. Nice grassy color. Citrus and pine aromas. Flavor is full and well rounded with citrus finish.
