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!

22 oz. bottle shared with alexanderj and kleyland at the 4th of July Celebration. Gold color. Thin, white head. Citrus hop aroma. Nice balance between the malt backbone and citrus hops. Long, bitter finish.

Arayaga2 (1902) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Amber with thin, dimpled tan head. Aroma is resinous with sweet citrus and malt. Taste is dry and and cleanly bitter with good malt backbone, but it simply is not bitter enough to meet my expectations for 100IBU+. Carbonation is rather vigorous, which may compete with its hoppiness. $5/22oz

BMan1113VR (7903) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Pours with a foamy off-white head covering a clear amber body. Aroma of floral, pine like, and spicey hops with ripe melon and toffee. Tastes like a good clean DIPA. Although it doesn’t knock my socks off like some Port DIPAs, this stuff is good, with plenty of hop bite and a nice balance from the toffee malts. Creamy mouthfeel, slightly overcarbonated. At $3.99 for a bomber, I could get use to this. One of the best beer buys since their Gnarly wine!

paiste2002 (185) - Saugus, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
22oz Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a white head falling off to a delicate lace. Aroma is citrus, pine, fresh hops very in your face hops, awesome! Flavor is super hoppy up front pine citrus with a nice balance of malty sweetness and a huge hoppy bitter finish. Awesome brew, I’ll have to grab more before it’s gone.

m4rest88 (387) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Pours with a dark, golden hue with almost no head. Aroma is hoppy, very hoppy, with some dark fruits, caramel, toffee, pine needles. There is a slight alcohol note in the nose. The beer has a sweet beginning flavor, with a heavy bitter ending with lots of hops. The nose that is full of hoppiness stays constant in the taste. Medium mouthfeel, with light carbonation.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 9, 2008
on tap at Toronado mid September. Golden pour with orange highlites, good smelling brew - fresh pine. Taste- medium bodied with full malt presence to go along with hop assault. Hops not overwhelming but still have a nice kick. Pretty balanced for a hefty dipa

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Served on draft at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham, NC. Gold color with a 1-finger fine, snow-white head. Citrus and resin hop aroma with a subtle maltiness. Taste is a similar hop profile, but with a brown sugary maltiness. Full bodied.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle shared by Springslicker. Poured orange with a white head that left light lacing. Nice hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. The flavor found lots of pine and hoppy citrus with a good caramel backing. Medium body, crisp, moderate bitterness throughout. Very nice!

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham, had a somewhat hazy orange hue, aroma of strong floral hops, pine resins. Flavour was full bodied, both hoppy and malty, and pine resins abound, extremely sticky with tropical fruit sweetness. Very quaffable, hard to believe its a double. A tremendous IPA beer.
