COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Let's call this one a creature created from a massive amount of hops. It's alive with them, the aroma comes pouring out of the glass. There is just enough malt to hold it all together. Hopheads delight! This is your beer.

On tap at brewpub. Pours copper with thin white head. Bubblegum, fruit, citrus, something else I can’t quite place. Moderately bitter and sweet. Crisp and a bit acidic. Interesting aromas.

On tap at the source. Comes to the table a deep orange amber color with a thinnish white head that dissipates quickly to a small cap on top. Smells of bitter resin, grapefruit, apricots and a hint of ethanol and bready malt. The flavor starts off with a solid shot of bitter pine and resin with some citrus fruit in the mix as well. There’s a hint of bready and caramel malt as well as a healthy shot of alcohol before a long lingering bitter resinous finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bitter resinous mouthfeel. This is a solid DIPA, it made for a really nice after dinner drink.

Draft from Martha’s. Unclear Amber in color. Nice white head with decent spider-web lace. Nose is a mix of citrus and pine. Taste is much the same, good amount of pine needles and resin bitterness. Medium body, toward the lighter side of meduim body. Slightly lingering bitterness. Well made.

Draught at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Smells of grapefruit, some floral notes. Tastes resiny and sweet with a bitter finish.

mcox90 (1545) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Growler. Pours a deep amber color with a 1/2" off white head. Massive hop aroma with a hint of background malt. Heavy, sticky palate with low carbonation. The hop bitterness practicly bites you on the tongue. Huge hop based flavor as you would expect as well as a sweet malt undertone. Also, some secondary fruit flavor. This was one enjoyable brew. The Dr is in.

on tap-pours a rich light tan head that laces and amber color. Aroma is nice citrus-grapefruit, secondary sweet medium malt. Taste is nice citrus-grapefruit/pine hops with some bitter, secondary sweet medium malt. Slightly slick.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2007
[growler] Rich amber in color, with a coarse white head. Aroma is powerful, dense hops. Resinous, hops flavors are as strong as the aroma, with more fruit (peach, mango and pineapple) showing through. The malt really seems to take the backseat, allowing the hops to really dominate. Long, piney hop finish balances perfectly with alcohol warmth.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2007
growler shared at the CL RB gathering, thanks dirtymike for this one. Relatively clear orange with some reddish highlights. Aroma has alot of citrus and pine, fresh resiny hops- citrus is slightly sweet and has alot of mango character. Taste also has a ton of hop character- sticky resiny citrus, mango, and pine. Full bodied, but not overpowering. Finishes hoppy, resinous and bitter. Carbonation was a tad low, but didn’t even make much of a difference. Excellent IIPA.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Growler supplied by hophead75 (thanks!): Amber colored beer with lots of clarity and an off white film for head. The aroma is strikingly hoppy. Oily resins shoot out at you. Piney, grapefruit, nice. The flavor is ultimate hop oils. It tastes like hop extracts with a drop of malt in the body. Has an extreme pineyness and a perfumy character. Could be a bit more balanced in my opinion. Would improve significantly with age.
