COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s no myth that this is Green Man’s most impressive and sought after special offering. A mammoth Double IPA that boasts 6 different hops, it’s the one hopheads wait for. Like a cool rain after a long drought, this one will quench your desire for big flavor and balance.

750 ml bottle via NC trade- thanks again, John! Pours a clear dark orange tea color with a thick off-white head that settles into an uneven film with a ring. Plenty of lace. Aroma of very herbal hops, with pine, oils, leaves, pepper, and some caramel and toasty malts. Flavor of peppery, herbal, oily hops, caramel malts, grapefruit peel, pine needles, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a dry, bitter mouthfeel that has a bitter push late but doesn’t linger too heavily. Really nice double IPA. Complex showcase of hops.

750 bottle shared. Poured orange with off white head. Huge pine nose with some citrus underlying. The flavor is somewhat malty and sweet. The hops are predominant and bitter. The sweet is weird and not working. Less malt would make this much better.

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Clean straw yellow pour with one finger of white head. Grassy nose with a slightly bready note . A touch of alcohol comes through as well. Weird flavor. Strong grapefruit rind and pith. Bitter and astringent.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewer’s Festival 2013... This beer rocks!… Deep, crystal clear, textbook amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a grapefruit bomb with a sprinkling of cat piss and other assorted, dank, earthy notes. There are also mild components of biscuit and flowers. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor features an impressive toffee, caramel and honey malt backbone, but it only serves as a pedestal for massive citrusy and earthy hop bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. World class imperial IPA!

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle shared by jmborggren. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex resin, citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bitter finish of medium to long duration. This is a standout beer.

750 ml bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours a clear bright orange amber color with a small, but lasting white head. The aroma has citrus, herbal and light pine hops with an sizable toasted malt backbone. The flavor leans more toward the malt side which isn’t bad, but I like my DIPA’s to have a bit more assertive hop bill. Toasted caramel malt with a balanced citrus, herbal, grassy hop presence. Moderate bitterness. Tasty, but I wanted more hops.

Labeled as 9.3% ABV. 750ml bottle shared with the group by jmborggren, I think. Mostly clear golden / orange color. Good thin somewhat bubbly white head. Decent lace. Awesome citrusy - orange piney nose. Smooth, light carbonation. Grapefruit in the flavor. Kind of a creamy texture. Nice and smooth. Good bitter taste, and zesty sweetness. Some kiwi. Nice bitter taste. Good sweet zest. Nice big caramel malt base. Balanced, but still assertive DIPA. I dig it.
