COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A freakin’ hop bomb. Bright, multilayered citrus hop aromas and flavors blow up your face, with just the right amount of hop bitterness to back it all up.

Bottle from brewery. Pours gold with nice frothy off-white foam. Smells sweet, piney with hints of alcohol and caramel/lupulin. Tastes grapefruity with hints of lemon, pine and plenty of sweet lupulin and a nice bitter kick at the end.

tp at Gigantic brewpub, PDX, 22/05/13. Lightly hazed golden with a decent sized white head. Nose is hops, grass, pine, light grapefruit, citrus notes. Taste carries a decent hop bite, bitter grapefruit, pine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish, Decent enough DIPA.

mcberko (6300) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours cloudy golden orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, pine and caramel malts - great nose. Flavour is pungent, with strong notes of piney citrusy hops, some grapefruit and other light tropical fruits, and a thin caramel biscuity malt backing. Very hoppy, with very little malt backing but just enough to balance the body - leaves a medium astringency. Excellent stuff.

umich03jm (1933) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bomber ordered on LetsPour. Pours a cloudy darkish orange color with a nice 1 finger head that fades quickly. Aroma is somewhat faint for an Imperial IPA. Oranges mostly with some light tropical fruit and flowers. Taste is a definite hop bomb. Very light sweetness at the start but a very strong bitterness citrus taste takes over. Not a big fan of this, tastes like I’m chewing on a bitter orange peel. Very dry and a little tart in the finish too.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle:   Orange hued golden, pale haze, thin to moderate off-white head, nice lacing.   Musty hop aroma.   Faint alcohol, slight tropical fruit, candied citrus peel, and pith.   Aroma has all the aspects that I like, but its not too bright or seemingly that sweet.   Musty hop bitterness on the tongue.   Similar to the aroma, faint alcohol and tropical fruit, along with pith and citrus peel (not so candied at this point).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finishes musty, citrusy, but without as much sweetness to balance it out.   If you like hopsided IIPAs, this is for you.   If you want something balanced with malt sweetness, look elsewhere.   As is, decent.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. The beer pours a clear amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and roast malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character and notes of malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Sarlacc83 (710) - Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2013
22oz bottle from Belmont Station. A: Good semi-translucent copper with a thin ring of white head. Good legs, and it looks pretty calm sitting here in front of me. N: Lots of wholesome, healthy hops. Pineapple, pine, mango, and earth. Biscuit and rising dough. Grapefruit is rounding this one out. It’s very well balanced and it’s a very pleasing scent. T: A sweeter, tropical hop bomb, which is just the way I prefer it. There’s a roundness of the sugars mixed with a touch of bitterness from the hops. Can spike parts of the mouth with the hop sting. M: Heavier body with some noticeable alcohol. Has an appropriate level of carbonation in that the bubbles are lively, but they’re not pop-rocks all over my mouth. O: This is an excellent representation of the style if you’re looking for something which hits all around the bases instead of focusing on one single aspect of a DIPA. These are my favorite types of the style.
