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!

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) just trying for the first time. They don’t call it hop stoopid for no reason. The hoppiness is almost overwhelming for a first beer of the night. great beer if you’re 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.

This is a true Hop Bomb, one of the great double IPA’s that i enjoy at least once a week.

Tropical fruits and citrus mixed with creamy caramel, a little dank, and big resinous pine with some hop spice in the finish. ABV is almost completely hidden. Awesome malt backbone. Good balance. I have no choice but to call this one of my favorite IPAs. It is incredibly balanced, and the parts combine to create amazing flavors. I will be drinking this many more times to come.

Great flavor. Very sweet and malty and smooth. Yes I know I didn’t use an oxford comma, what of it. The beer is well balanced leaning more towards the malt but plenty of hoppiness.

ismith87 (70) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2014
Appearance - 4.5 - nice clear golden amber color with a fluffy white head that leAves nice lacing. Smell/Aroma - 9/10 - pine, orange, garlic, onion. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste - 9/10 - garlic, onion, grapefruit, pine, orange, brown sugar, overly ripe fruit. Palate/ mouth feel - 4/5 - light to medium, alcohol covered, after taste is pine, grapefruit, and bitter. Overall - 18/20 - great I PA. Affordable compared to other Ipas. this doesn’t taste like Pliny the Elder to me but I’ve heard it described as such. This has more "additional sugar" taste in it That some beers seem to get from corn sugar or other forms of sugar.

Does not smell as hoppy as the name would suggest. Aroma also contains pine, grapefruit and malt sweetness, but it is all subdued. Golden color, lighter than most other DIPA’s I have seen. Giant ivory colored stubborn head that leaves a ton of lacing and stays thick for a long time. The taste is hop bitterness and malt sweetness alternating between one another brilliantly. The citrus that is faintly present in the aroma comes through in a huge way in the flavor. Very refreshing. Great slick palate, long lasting slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite possibly the best palate I have experienced in an IPA. Glad I tried this one; as an added bonus, it was one of the cheapest 22 oz. bottles as the Wine and Cheese Place.
