on draft @ iron hill Lancaster. Poured clear amber color with a one finger white head. Aroma is of very floral a piney hops. I was in love even before I tasted it. Taste is the same with hints of grapefruit and orange. Balanced well, at least for me.

Draft @ Iron Hill North Wales. Pours a brilliant, orangish-yellow color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Dense, resiny aroma; orange and dry citrus hops. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: dense citrus and orange hops; pleasant balancing candy sugar malt character; dense, but soft and sugary starting at mid-palate. Lengthy, dry citrus finish.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Iíve now had 4/5 "Hopzillas" listed on Ratebeer. I just need the Wild Duck to be complete, but itís retired and not made anymore. Had this on draft at North Wales. Very sharp c-note hops in the nose, dank even, with some olive oil and grapefruit hop resin in the nose. Fluffy yeast on the tongue, maybe a sourdough quality as well, with some muddiness in the hop flavors as well. Sharp and oily, but light on the tongue over the middle, mostly just sharp up front. Oily rather than crisp I would say, with some fruity bitterness and some moderately strong grassiness in the finish. I like.

I thought this was just a re-lable of their IPA or IIPA, but seeing as itís an entry, here goes... On tap. Medium copper in color with a very small off white head. Aromas of citrus, floral and light caramel. Tastes follow with a grapefruit bitter finish.

This one is great, with a medium copper pour and fluffy, two-finger off-white head. The aroma is intense and hoppy, with a solid caramel malt and some tropical fruit notes. The flavor and palate are complex, well balanced, hoppy, fruity, with a solid caramel malty backbone. I growlered this one, and enjoyed every ounce.

Pours a clear copper color with a soapy white head. Nice aroma of hops and citrus and maybe some malts. Taste is citrusy up front with a bitter but enjoyable aftertaste. Hints of pine abound. Great beer!

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2007
On tap at the Phoenixville location. Pours a translucent golden amber with a foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of orange, lots of caramel malt, very hoppy with some floral as well. Flavor of chewy hops, pine, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, toasted malts, fruity esters and lots of hop bitterness.

Gen Lafayette strong ale fest. Pretty decent DIPA overall, but didnt really impress me. Medium amber with a lasting sticky off white head. Aroma is typical piney and citrus hops, light orange peel, some grapefruit and a good malt backbone. Flavor is similar hop character, but it doesnt have that bite or resiny hopiness that I look for in a DIPA. Too much malt and not enough hops.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2007
On draft at the North Wales location. Pours amber with a compact one inch thick fluffy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and caramel malts. The flavor is mildly bitter, citrus, and lightly sweet caramel. Good brew, i prefered the IPA over Hopzilla.
