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!

This is a fantastic beer. Huge aroma of citric hops and sweet malt with no noticeable alcohol. I would ask for a little more complexity from the hops. It is beautiful, but its head ran away too quickly. Itís thicker on the palate but extremely drinkable, with a sweet start and dry, balanced finish.

Have to admit, itís a damn good beer. Nice, strong hop flavor with a clean mouthfeel.

The aroma has a sweetness to it that many IPAís donít have. There are citrus grapefruit, apricot, and piney smells along with other hops. It is golden clear with a little lacing and a white head. The taste has grapefruit, a bit of caramel, piney hops, and apricot.

From the 650 ml bottle. It pours an orange-copper color with a decent off-white head that fades and laces. Excellent clarity. Grassy and floral hops are on the nose with a muted but present toasted malt character. Medium body. Nicely balanced hop and malt character although the hops lead. Bitter finish that lingers.

screigh (445) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours a clear dark gold color. Thick white head that lasts and lasts. Lots of soapy lacing. Hoppy pine aroma. Huge resin hop flavor. Nicely balanced malt followed by a lingering bitterness that tastes like a fresh grapefruit.

CacheManyHose (168) - HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2014
Clear amber with small fine bubbly head. Smells so yeasty it's almost a bit food/fish-like though not unpleasant, just a bit musty and strange. Some spice and malt too. Taste is very, very, very hoppy, loads of deep bitter pine that ends on a more malty slightly sour note. Body is foamy but slick. Huge and pretty drinkable for a beer that's this hoppy but kind of coarse/rough, almost like a really ambitious big homebrew.

HKdIPA (214) - HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from QClub at home. Very deep amber clear pour. Thin foamy head. Very unusual aroma - very sharp hoppy fruity aroma with a peppery spiciness. Taste is huge resinous hops, a bit sour fruit in its hoppiness too. Malty and rich enough to stand up to it. A bit thick/syrupy. Ends with booze and bitterness. Very big, heavy, extremely hoppy. Too extreme to buy frequently.

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) just trying for the first time. They donít call it hop stoopid for no reason. The hoppiness is almost overwhelming for a first beer of the night. great beer if youíre into Hops will be your death if you are not. but definitely worth the price and worth trying once; hell, maybe even twice ;)

Bottle from MSM. Pours a golden amber. Thin white head. Scent is a crisp hoppy and piney one. Taste is the same. Smooth hop flavor lingers. Tasty beer.
