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

Hazy amber pour. Dank and piney hops in aroma. Taste was still more piney but slightly watery. Eh.

Rich hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a thin white head less than a centimetre tall. Aroma of pungent PNW hops, some light apricot and pear sweetness and a very strong and fragrant malt backbone, along with a decent amount of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavours at first with a great malt backbone and a very nice complexity throughout showing some sweetness from fruit as well. Aftertaste has some subdued floral and piney characteristics, but the resin,grapefruit and herbal notes of the hops really come through at the end, along with the alcohol, of course. Overall, a nice beer - definitely well worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this large pint (24 ounce+) at Platte River Bar & Grill in Littleton, Colorado for US$8.99 on 06-June-2014 a few minutes after arriving from the East Coast, with haddon90!

I enjoyed this one from the taproom. Lightly sticky sweet with floral and grassy hops, punchy, fairly clean and easy drinking with a light bite. Interesting hop combo but it works...

Plenty of big hops flavor and still goes down like a dream. Don’t believe me? Watch the review here: http://teamchug.com/dry_dock_hop_abomination/
