COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have set out to wilfully maim and cripple the palates of the most extreme hop head. This act of wanton destruction is in the true spirit of what festive brews are about, to create something unique and fun. It is our intention to create a violent and needless disturbance in your olfactory senses. The riotous confusion, from the unnatural quantity of dry hopping, will leave your palate satisfyingly violated after having just one taste. Only the brave can be assured to tame this hop insanity.

A - Pours a clear amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, citrus, and floral hops with some sweet caramel malts. T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and other tropical hops, some bitterness, and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some floral and piney hops come through with some more bitterness and some bready malts. The finish is a mix of pineapple, grapefruit, and pine hops with some sweet bready malts. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Good hop and malt balance with some good bitterness and body for overall balance.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2012
Pour is deep amber with big beige head. Aroma is a pleasant pine hoppiness. Flavour is initially hints of apricot and some breadiness before the hops come in and do their business coating the palate with resinous hops. Finish is quite long and enjoyable. Top stuff!!

reebtogi (4106) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber orange color with a finger of creamy white head that retains well and leaves some soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some light fruits and grains. Taste is bold pine and citrus hop bitterness up front balanced nicely with an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some good carbonation leaving a nice feeling on the tongue. A pleasing and bold india pale ale that is recommended for a tasting.

beersearcher (2315) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours a clear and bubbly orange. Nice lacing on the glass. Very sweet on the nose. Methinks some of the hop bite got lost in transport. But if you are in a non west coast hop mode this would really work. Really sticks to the palate without scraping it to death. Getting some orange taste at the very end.

flying_pig (911) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2012
500ml Bottle (from Brewdod.com):
Lots of bitterness upfront along with a sweet pine and strong hops smell. There is also a little vanilla and dark malts but the hops dominate along with a general bittersweet aroma.
Clear amber & a foamy, centimetre thick and foamy white head with good retention.
Hops and pine kick things off here, along with some piney bitterness and a good malt presence. There is a little citrus and some summer fruits along with a lingering bitterness.
Light in body and as mentioned before there is tonnes of hops in this one. The feel is a semi-smooth one with medium carbonation and a lingering bitter finish.

Very hoppy and quite like an IPA is a some nice pine hops and a few malts thrown in for good measure as well. The taste is surprisingly refreshing and nicer than I had imagined.
