This was brilliant. Malty front end with a dry finish. Loads of apricot, grasses, citrus. right in my wheelhouse. Sludge that needed shaken up at the bottom... mmmm... sludge.

I had this at HotD. Allenís OBF Friday get together. Holy Sh*t! Hop Monster. Great hop bitterness. If you are one of these Belguim wussies... donít go here. Golden in color. Bought a whole case to bring back to Atl.

650ml bottle. Pale gold pour. This is practically near pnw ipa perfection. Citrus, pine, herbal, rye. It is super dry, medium to high bitterness. Godly.

A great DIPA: my girlfriend hates bitterness in beers but loved this. Itís a cloudy, dark pour on draft- likely due to the high SG and could benefit from some finings. However, is reminiscent of real ale, and smells hoppy, malty, and amazing. Flavor is big, sweet, and hoppy with a smooth, even finish. Well balanced and full-flavored.

Bottle, fall 2007. Aroma of delectable grapefruit and the freshest green melon scent I’ve ever smelled, from beer or fruit. Huge rich rye and caramel malt there in perfect balance, and by balance I mean that both the hoppy and malty aspects shine in bursting glory without subduing each other. Flavor is the same, and that is a very good thing. Not a hint of astringency, mouthfeel both incredibly rich from the malt and airy and juicy from the hops. Fantastic.

Tasted this one over 20 times at the Alvinne festival !!! soo good ! Thanks Alan for bringing this one !!
Head: white, creamy
Colour: opaque orangy/yellowish
Smell: floral, citric/lemongrass, lychee, fruity , reminds me of a fresh thaÔ salad :p
Taste: floral with bitter hopy start, fruits, yeast, bitter undernote fresh fruity end , aftertaste is lime and freshmown grass, very nice

This is good because itís so well balance , right amount of hops , right amount of bitterness , and really fresh in flavour , also the alcohol volume is amazing , and proves that not all double ipaís have to be +10% in alcohol with only hops in the flavour , superb !!!

Local for me, and available seasonally on the shelves, this is one of my favorite DIPAs hands down. Intensely aromatic with citrus, grapefruit, pine, hop resin and just straight up juiciness. Lots of malt flavor with a bit of spice and hop bitterness. This is deliciously mouth watering and quenching. Drinks very easily. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste. Canít stop drinking this!
