Part of the MEPS series. An American Double India Pale Ale that packs a punch when it comes to hops. The aroma and flavors will give you citrus and pine with a slight malt sweetness that finishes dry.
Malts – a blend of Canadian, German, Chile and United Kingdom malts
Hops – Cascade, Citra, Columbus, Magnum and Hersbrucker

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
22oz bottle from Cask n’Flask, San Jose. Deep bronze crowned with a huge, heavily cratered cream foam. Floral, mandarin, blackcurrant, lychee, caramel and honey notes in a fragrant and hop-dominated aroma. Fine flavour with peppery, trifle-bottom booze and honeyed, husk-accented malt overpowered by aromatic tangerine and floral hops. Pine and soapy lavender. Not a sniff of the considerable ABV. Rounded and aromatic IPA.

22. Pours a brilliantly clear medium gold with a loose white head. Bright piney nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with lots of dry pine. Long dry finish.

dresden (1134) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a clear light golden amber with a nice foamy head. Aroma is pungent hop - grassy, oranges, pine and floral. Taste is lots of cascade, but a nice citra sweet fruit taste as well. Body is medium, but alcohol is well hidden in this one. Nice and sticky resinous finish. Nice!

stefannilssons (1534) - SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2013
Den här ölen verkligen växte på mig, den var bra vid första klunken men galet bra vid den sista slurken. Smaken var balanserad med toner av grapefrukt, persika, äpple och ananas.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2013
Bäst balanserad Imperial IPA på väldigt länge. Kraftig i aromen och smaken. Men den kraftiga humlen fångas upp av en fin fyllighet. Tydliga inslag av tropisk frukt.

MacBoost (1488) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with an initially large white head that faded to a ring and lasted, in ring form, throughout the glass which took me about 2 minutes. Aromas of pine and citrus fruit. Taste is bracingly bitter, some sweetness in the middle and finishes with a long bitter aftertaste. A fucken palate shredder, for sure. But with exquisite fruit. Pretty damn tasty.

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours copper with light-yellow highlights, inch head and lasting lace, big piney, citrusy hoppy nose, hides its 9% ABV with a beautifully balanced malt and hop middle palate, finishes clean and crisp. A benchmark high-gravity beer without the heavy alcoholic taste.
