damn this ipa is hoppy! the rye malt adds the extra impact along with the combination of their ’obscene amount of hops.’ there’s much caramel and almost a chocolate flavour on the tail of the palate. the ’brew remains true to the ipa style, and i would be comfortable comparing it to the j.w.dundee ipa, another (though less ABV) high octane experience. Schmaltz hit the nail on the head with this one, and now i’m off to sample the rest of the line. hope this helps.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Poured a rusty red with a light cloudy head. Warmy hoppy nose; big and citric with a hardy malty undertow. Rich nutty sweetness tops it off. Excellent.

This offering from He’Brew pours a dark plum delicious and tasty that leaves a thick tan head. The aroma is fantastic rye, caramel, pitted fruit, this is a very complex and enjoyable nose. The taste starts malty upfront, caramel, maybe brown sugar, it then moves to a spicy bitter grapefruit feel on the palate finishing with a plum, date, sweetness rounded out with a bready, nutty feel that I love, the alcohal being at 10% is warming and not overwhelming. This is a great brew and although Mendocino brews their beers great job Shmaltz and keep them coming!

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear, electric garnet color with a frothy ivory colored head. Sweet wort aroma. Very bitter and malty with a zingy rye kick. The aroma hops seem underdone but the rest of this beer kicks ass. Somewhat sweet, bitter finish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle purchase at Party Town in Florence., KY. Pours thick, and a very deep copper brown with off white head, decent lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and toasted grains. Lots of maltiness in the flavor of toasted grains, tea, rye, caramel. Semi-dry and very peppery bitter hop finish, with some alcohol coming out in the end. More barleywine/strong ale territory than DIPA. But I don’t rate to style. As a beer, this did not wow me, and seemed at bit messy. Not really flaws, just a personal observation.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Noticeably astringent, with high its high alcohol content. The rye makes it highly dry and crisp - of course, as well as the hefty dose of strong hops. This beer has a dark, copper-hued body, with a light tan, almost frothy head. Full mouthfeel, especially with sweet malts and high carbonation. Bitingly bitter aorma and really pretty darn good overall.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Had on tap at Falling Rock during the GABF. Excellent Rye double IPA, the rye adds something new and different. A bit roasty, a bit grainy, and wonderfully hoppy.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Bottle drank at Max’s in Baltimore Amber gold color, nice head and lacing. Nose of earthy, citrusy, melonny and piney hops. Columbus and amarilloish. The flavor is sweet, very caramelly and balanced, nice snappy rye flavor and a spicy finish that compliments the hops, very rich and tasty mouthfeel.

Gorgeous deep dark fiery copper color with an immensely thick stack of soft off-yellowed foam. Tons of lacing coats the glass like frosting. Aroma of alcoholic vapors waver over a thick dark malt sweetness and dry rye breadyness. Highly pine soaked oilyness ensues as it sits. This is where the 10% really makes itself present. Taste is big and malty with lots of chewy breadyness laced with a few dark fruit skins and pits. Thicker yet, burntness of brown sugar arrives along with the rye, which in tune sets up the dryness over the super high pine hoppyness that nearly burns the throat out with an oil drenching thickness of orange, grapefruit, and pine sweetened bitterness. Ripe Barleywine-esk in nature and character. Huge mouthfeel. Every corpuscle is soaked and coated with bitter sweet thickness. Big malt, big hops, (as stated on the label "an obscene amount") and that rye adds a nice extra cap of clever dryness to its bready fruit bread base. Oily smooth and warming with a complexing fun finish of hop oil warmth and malt residue. Another keeper of a brew by He’Brew. A nice tribute to Lenny.
