COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wrath is the manifestation of rage to get revenge or cause harm.
Wrath Belgian-style Double IPA is fiercely bitter, spicy and earthy. Its fury slowly and deliberately unfurls on the tongue, relentlessly bringing on more and more layers of flavor with each sip.
100 IBU’s. Summit, Columbus, Simcoe and Crystal Hops for the boil along with Simcoe and Crystal dry hop.

Past notes. Colour...golden-orange with a thick ecru head. Nose...lightly Belgian-y with loads of piney hops and notes of honeysuckle. Palate...massively frothy with the simcoes shining through, more than any other hops. The pine tar is as big as a doctored up baseball bat, with sugar syrup and macerated pineapple core. There’s tons of tropical fruit to go with the pine and star fruit is the standout. The finish is long and semi cloying.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Backlog rating 12-13-2008 (Bottle shared by jsquire) When poured, this beer has a small white fizzy head, very little lacing, hazy body, and visible carbonation. The aroma consists of hops, grapefruit and citrus. The taste is very hoppy, grapefruit and bitter. The palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. I am not a hoppy beer drinker, but I did like this beer with the way the flavors came together. This beer is definitely worthy of a try!

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 15, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #48. Light gold pour with a light white head. Really unique aroma, someone mentioned pear, maybe but hard to pin. Hippy flavor, cannot get much else, but good stuff. (1413)

A: The pour is a hazy golden orange color with a nice white head and nice lacing. S: The hops are quite grapefruity with only a mild pine. The Belgian yeast does contribute some of the usual fruity esters and aromas that you would expect. T: The hops are up-front and fruity with just a bit of citrus. The pine comes through a fair amount, which might be a bit surprising. There is also a faint alcohol flavor at times. M: Medium in body with a low to moderate carbonation. And some alcohol warmth at times. D: A pretty nice beer, especially for a Belgian IPA which isn’t really my favorite style. I wish the booze was not quite as noticeable, but such is life.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 19, 2010
From last year, bottle thanks to Ira. Clear golden color/ white head. mild piney hop, earthy yeast, pale malt aromas. frothy light mouthfeel. Good spicy, citrus, mild pine hop, pale malt bitter sweet flavors with mild belgian yeast spiciness. Still pretty tasty after two plus years in a bottle.

Tmoney99 (11069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle shared at local gathering. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Complex good brew.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 29, 2009
This bottled brew from a rating party at JSquires poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy yellow colored body and thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild malt and mild hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider having again.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 20, 2009
22oz bottle. First off let me say this beer was over 2 years old when sampled, not the best for an IIPA. Golden pour with a whitish head. Aroma of cereal, spicy Belgian yeast, and some grassy, citrus hops. The flavor is a blend of sweet malt, sour and bitter, there is a slight harshness at the end probably due to the age. The flavor and aroma of the hops are pretty much dead but the bitterness is still there. I think the Belgian yeast has helped to preserve this one. Wish I could have rated this one fresh.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Light golden with some floaties and a nice fluffy head. The aroma is very grassy and herbal with a nice spicy note too. Sweet grainy malt initially with a pleasant spicy. grassy hop bitterness. Some spices as well come in giving it a distinctly Belgian feel. Long earthy bitterness in the finish. Nice.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Tasted 3/1/09. 22oz bomber. Hazy with a honey golden hue. Moldy layer of off-white head. Lotta citrus in the nose. Orange notes with a faint wisp of pepper. Medium bodied and much more hop oriented. The yeast character takes a back seat. Faint, trace malts. Then all bitter. Resinous, piney and grapefruity. Good effervescence. Not too much pepper nor coriander. Good brew.
