An imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down. Hops have got you coming and going. Pungent aromatics up front paired with a malt balanced backbone and a smooth bitter finish. 86 IBUs.

Yes, good, good, yes. For a South Jersey Piney, this is heaven. Just a notch below Troegs Nugget Nectar. Great pine aroma and flavor. Very bitter, clean finish. More more more. Only a four pack. I want more.

ilovedarkbeer (2389) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a golden yellow color with a small off white oily head. Nose is skunky and catty but also kind of dank and resin like. Taste is pine and citrus which turns into a good spicy hop bit. Sticky resin mouthfeel and long finish.

jrmac (331) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Pours a weak golden brown color with a very thick white foam. Smells of Hops, and grapefruit. Taste of lemon grapefruit. Pine cones and grassy. Super clean finish. All in all this beer is one hell of an IPA.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle. Body-medium yellow, very little foam, almost still looking. Nose-grassy, PNW hops without the citrus note. Taste-sweet, body odor, armpit, bitter, fruit esters. Numbs my tongue. A little bit of alcohol on the back end. Just a little to over the top to completely enjoy.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Bottle thanks ericandersnavy. Pours with a small white head over a clearish golden body. Aroma is pungent hops (I get a lot of Simcoe), some other citrus hops, toffee and marijuana. Taste is pine, earthy and mango hops. Good stuff. Light bubbles, some alcohol and a bit dry on the palate. 3.9
Bottle (bottled 3/20/12). Clear golden hue with a lasting white head. Good lace and retention. Aromas are of tangerine, tropical fruit, pine and resin. Medium dank and pungent qualities. Moderately low malt presence. Floral. Low esters. Smells very much in the vain of a West Coast hoppy beer. Flavors are moderately malty, lightly nutty, hoppy. Extremely bitter, lingering to the point of astringency. Bitter balance. Light oxidative presence (odd for something this fresh). Dry malt character, plenty of alcohol. Hop flavors are of tangerine, medium citrus, grassy. Really astringent. Moderate bubbles, dry, grassy, warming. 3.6

Bottle thyanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a murky light gold with white head. Aroma is somewhat piney. Flavor is strong, hoppy, piney, grassy, alcohol, and strong bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with medium-high carbonation. Overall, good stuff!

stoutfu (1) - USA - FEB 19, 2009 does not count
Bottle. Pours almost a hazy yellow with a mild head. Aroma was citrus and piney with a hint of orange. It has a nice hoppy flavor with a bitter taste and a nice finish. Reminded me of Three Floyds Dreadnaught.
