COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This DIPA is a bad ass. Straight up. Itís hopiness isnít just limited to the floral nose or lingering bitterness but a full hop flavor all the way through your palate. We bitter with a Super Alpha, and follow it up with a few flavoring additions throughout the boil. A massive dry hop of Simcoe and Amarillo create a huge aroma profile that really comes through in a big way.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a Light Amber color with a thick white head. The aroma is strong with floral, citrus & burnt malt & barley. The Taste is medium in body with a slight sweet floral taste upfront followed by a very bitter finish. Overall not bad but a little funky after taste.

From 22 oz bottle. I think my bottle said 8.2%. Pours copper. Aroma of melon and floral hops. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of burnt malts, cream of tartar, grapefruit hops, strange melon juice, alcohol. Overall big and bold but funky and bitter.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that has gold hued edges and supports a tall tan head of foam. The aroma is orange juice cut with grapefruit and lighter notes of malts, lime and faint caramel malts. The taste begins with a rush of malt sweetened citrus with grapefruit, tangelo and orange. Those notes are laced oddly with a caramel maltiness with a thin ribbon of butterscotch and this seems to distract from the overall experience by a small amount. This tastes a bit flawed but Iím still digginí this diggity.

DuffMan (6667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle, sent to me by DocJitsu-- thanks Dennis! Shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Hazy light orange, creamy off white head. Zesty grapefruit and resinous pine in tremendous concentration, backed by malts that are more crackery than caramelly, making for a "hop-juice" kind of drinking experience. Substantially less sweet than the Great Divide Hercules that we shared alongside it. Fantastic.
