COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Growler from Bierkraft. Copper with a bumpy off-white head, leaving craggy lacing. Pineapple, passionfruit, tangerine and floral aromas. Zesty hop profile at the front--grapefruit, lemon and pine. Hops dominate a relatively clean and introverted malt body. Sharp pine and citrus hop finish. Lengthy bitterness-with that nice hop oil on the tongue and teeth feeling. One of the best Cali 2IPA’s I believe I’ve had.

22 oz bomber. Pours clear gold with a big head. Aroma and flavor of striong citrus, mainly grapefruit. Sublte maltiness, but hops dominate this monster. Lively carbonation and there is a long bitter finish. Very easy to drink. Excellent IIPA.

mpersinger (347) - , California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Draft, pours tawny golden with moderate carbonation. Crisp aroma, some musty malty flavors followed by harshness due to hops bitterness. Body a bit too lean for bitterness.

I thought that this was a very good beer, but not quite excellent. Well hopped, with a piney rather than citrus profile dominating. Decent not overwhelming hop backbone, and decent mouthfeel. A very nice beer, and one that I wish I had more of in the fridge.

Thanks kp for bringing to the Sexual Chocolate release. Pours a nice copper amber with a thin offwhite head. The nose is very pungent, citrusy, fruity, grapefruit rind, very pure hop aroma. You can actually smell the hop buds. Flavor is very citrusy and resinous, mango, citrus rind, nice malt sweetness for the balance. Very very tasty DIPA.

I am having better and better double IPAs, this being one. Its well hopped, and the flavour comes through well supported by the malt backbone, without killing my palate. Very drinkable, even at lunchtime though requiring a weekend nap. Not complex, more high IBU hopping, enjoyable nevertheless. Good head and lace. Above average mouthfeel.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Cloudy orange, loose white head. Really nice aroma - hops, of course, and some odd herbal notes. Big hop flavor at first - citrusy with a bit of pine - then some subtle rustic, spicy notes in the background. Really tasty stuff.

Wow. Rush of citrus with a puckering taste very full in the mouth. Pretty to look at with copper color and tight lacing.

Draft @ Lagunitas Brewing Company. Pours an orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy pine needles aroma with some hints of grapefruit. Malty bitter hoppy piney flavor with hints of grapefruit. Has a long malty very bitter hoppy pine needles finish with a long bitter aftertaste. Nice!!
