COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial India Pale Ale is excessively hopped and for serious hop heads only. Generous usage of Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook, and Crystal hops will surely have you scraping them off your teeth.

20061209 Party at Capt Lawrence. Growler. Dark amber color, hazed. Aromas are massive with woodsy, spruce, grapefruit, orange-citrus hops, and aromatic bitters. Resinous yet unctuous, harsh bitter to finish but lastingly coating. Strong and hefty malt background is at once sturdy, yet not so bready, doughy, or flavorful as to overtake the big hops. Really nice.

hazy orange, frothy off white head, big hop aroma on a sweet malt base with a hint of grassy character (crystal dry hop), lots of hop flavor leading to a long bitter finish, plenty of candy sweetness comes as a second wave to add complexity rather than balance, quite tasty and dangerously drinkable,

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
Cask at Boston EBF 2007. Slightly cloudy golden body with almost no head. With a name like that I got what I expected, an avalanche of hops. This one was all about the juicy citrusy hops that lacked a bit in intensity but made up for it in quantity. Alcohol was surprisingly well hidden despite the light body and timid carbonation (even by cask standards). Hops juice. What happens when you mix hops and obnoxious together? A nice beer... or me on week-ends.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
EBF 2007: Hazy copper color with a loose white head. Aroma, caramel malts, some earthy hops. Flavor, lots of caramel and pale malts up front with some earthy and herbal notes on the back end. Decent bitterness, but this just didnít do it for me.

Man is this one ever obnoxiously hoppy and I love it! Nice deep golden color with a large white head. Aroma is full of fresh cut flowers,fruit,citrus and spice. Flavor is of oranges,grapefruit,lemons, very bitter with a good mouthfeel.This could have more malt character, but Iíd still love it either way. Becareful, this beer is very deceptive I didnít realize it was 9.5% until it was too late.Good times, hop times, enough said.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Poured a hazy golden with a white head. Strong citrus and pine hop aroma. Flavor is strong pine with a bit of grapefruit hops, leading to a very dry finish. Not a whole lot of sweetness, and the dry bitterness lacks a bit of hop complexity. Overall comes off a bit unbalanced, but still a good hoppy drink. Glistens like the sweat on a manís testicles (sorry, couldnít bring myself to complete the entire description...)

Big thanks to Hophead75 for bringing a growler to share at the captain lawrence open house. This was one of my favorites of the night. 9.5% ! Pours a deep orange with a nice sticky lasting head and some nice lacing on my glass. Very hoppy overall- lots of citrus, pine, orange peel, and even a hint of harsh smokiness from the chinook/? Nice full flavor and body with tons of hops, a bit of crystal matl backbone, and an extrememly harsh pleasant bitterness in the end which was nice. Damn tasty DIPA.

growler courtesy of dirtymike shared at the CL RB gathering, thanks Mike! This yearís version is 9.5 %. Deep golden/light amber in color. Lots of citrus, light pine, and malts blend nicely in the aroma. The taste is huge ctrrus, with a nice piney bitterness, oily/slick mouthfeel, full bodied. Lingering bitterness in the finish. really enjoyed this, and looking forward to more!

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2006
[many pints] Pours a bright gold color, with a tall, off white head. Strong citrus aroma. A real hop assault, in terms of flavors. Piney and resinous, but as it warms and the palate adjusts, some real fruity, melon-ish elements come through. Slick, dense mouthfeel. A really well done example of a pretty common style. Fantastic.

November 2005 - I had this outrageously hoppy IPA on tap at home. Quite intense for me, but great nonetheless. Superbitterfragilistickexpealadotious with a hint of citrus. The "strongest" IPA I have had to date. Nice job, Mike!
