COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more, At 98 IBU’s and 5.2 pounds of hops to the barrel it is an all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog Started as a labor of love but quickly took on a life of its own, leaving us drooling like Pavlov’s dogs at the mere mention of its name. Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on. Hops: Columbus, Northern Brewer, Ahtanum, Cascade and Simcoe Malt: Pale, Carmel and Munich

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Clear amber with a billowing head. Reasonably good aroma but vegetal/grassy notes predominate before the bitterness starts to build through the finish. Fine but below average in the Imperial IPA world, which has some really outstanding beers. Bottle.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
hazy amber/brownish pour with a medium head. aroma is strong caramel, bready maltiness and piney hop. Flavour is interesting mix of sweet bready malt. Slightly syrupy alc presence, floral and piney bitterness towards the finish.

Iphonephan (3018) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours cloudy dark gold with a thick frothy head and lots of lacing. Citrus and bread dough aroma carrying over to the flavor. Bitter finish.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Pretty dark orange color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy but nothing special. Tastes sweet and piney with notes of citrus. Pretty good beer overall but not an elite imperial ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - OCT 22, 2012
Tap at Rattle & Hum. Clear dark amber. Thin white head, nice lace. Slightly citrusy and grassy hop character dominates the nose. Mouth is hop with pineyness. Slightly sweet alcohol at the mid-mouth, then the back is rough bitterness of hops that continues to bite. Lasting hoppy oiliness, drying long after the swallow. For the most part exactly what you want from a IIPA. ---via BeerBuddy

cbfobes (2269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bomber picked up for $3 in the sale cart, already a good start, pours a bright clear golden orange with a thick white head and nice lacing, aroma has a good amount of hops on the front end but also has some sweetness of malt, the flavor has a bit of an alcohol touch on the front end with a dry finish, not a lot of fruit or hoppiness to speak of, more sweet malt, thick and sticky, meh.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Tap. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head and no lacing. Faint aroma of pine resin, citrus, caramel, and peach. Flavor is the same, caramel is stronger in the taste. Medium sweet and quit strongly bitter. Full bodied and creamy, but very low carbonation. I have to believe that this keg was getting a little long in the tooth, but its the only sample I have to rate.

Second IPA of the night. Nice dry floral flavor. Smooth creamy mouth feel. Clean, hoppy finish. Lingers on the palate just enough.

freeofthoughts (646) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours light amber golden with white suds. Rich aromatics, fruity green hops with soothing grain. The taste is grainy and filling, lightly warming and nice crisp fruity hops. Strong bitter but not overwhelming, kind of a light herbal green bitter with the fruits running with the grain midway and a nice drying grainy finish. There is a light tartness to compliment the sweet ish grain. Nice brew, I’ve tried an awesome variety of iipa’s from laughing dog.

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Dark amber color with a hint of murkiness and a very large aggressive white head w/ sticky soapy lacing. Fruity hop aroma hints of grapefruit, pine, passion fruit, some candied sugars - my one complaint is the aroma is a touch lighter than I’d like. Palate is full well bodied and lightly creamy. Flavor follows the aroma but with more intensity. Finishes lightly warm and sweet. I could have called this a barely wine more than an IIPA, but delicious either way.
