This whale of a brew begins with a huge grain bill, consisting of American two-row malted barley. Plenty of the finest American-grown hops are then introduced at every stage of the brewing process. Massive additions of hops in the boil kettle produce a smooth yet assertive finish.

After pouring this dark golden IPA into my merlot glass to observe its interesting features, I noted the strong aroma of a grapefruit type of hops and swirling unique malt characters I noted later in the taste. The first taste was a vocabulary lesson in hops and as I slowly tasted more of it, the spicy taste seemed to change its personality to illicit more fruity esters which I would usually attribute to heavier double IPA names. Like a circus bear riding a small bicycle, the Massive IPA packed a large taste that did various tricks as its slowly warmed up in my glass. I was impressed with its volume and weight as I thought it paired well with sharp cheddar cheese and would make a good beer to tailgate with in the company of good friends.

Meh. Medium to light body. I want so much to support my local brewery but I’m just not crazy about it. Malty and bitter but not in a way that’s pleasing to me. Lacks flavor. Drinkable but not a go-to for me.

A very unique IPA. Pours a clear copper. Has a mix of a barley wine and IPA with dark fruits and hops. Taste starts with citrus hops, turns to dark fruit, caramel, and malt, and finishes with an average bitter hop aftertaste.
