COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, full-bodied and powerful... hmmmmm? Maybe I should've called this "Yuppy Shake!" Huge hoppy rates help balance the malty alcohol flavor of this high-octane brew – a flashback in a glass.

Dark amber color with a big tan head. Moderate bitterness, with an oily film of hop flavor throughout... pine and bubble gum hop sting with a similar aroma... sweet hops all around, I’m digging this one. Semi-dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Hazy dark red color, looks much like the imperial ipa I made. Lots of color, head and lacing. Aroma is very floral and sweet with a touch of strawberry, caramel and chocolate. Large hop profile in the flavor, clean and fresh. I really like this IPA, it devoured the spiciness of the soup I was having. Dry and bitter finish as expected. Medium-large body due to the large amount of specialty malts that went into this one. Overall this is one of the better offerings from this place.

IndianaRed (2959) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2005
Tap Dark redish brown with medium off white head. Aroma was sweet hops and deep fairly dark malts. Flavor was quite robust for the stlye. dark malts and sweet spicy notes as well. Smokey, roasted grains, spicy. Interesting profile. Palate was also quite heavy and full bodied. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter but not offensive. I liked this one as well.
