After you take the rapid, plung over a big one, this tropically hopped double IPA will take the edge off those sore muscles.

Think big...real big... Inspired by the big waterfalls that brave, play boaters "drop" over while creek boating on Stompin’ days, our 8-Foot Drop Double IPA is packed full of hops and smoothed out with wild flower honey. The results

a hopped up, high gravity double IPA that will take the edge off a big day on the river or a long expedition into the Smoky Mountian backcountry.

This was one of two double ipas brewed this summer. The other one...name escapes me...was out, so i got this one instead. The other beer was not dry hopped, but this one was. Orange color, plenty of hops and citrus. Grapefruit, little alcohol noted..basically noon day on steroids. Refreshing and worth trying if you go here. Really good double ipa

On draught, this pours orange-amber into the glass, with a stiff retentive head that lasts, leaving ring lace. The nose is of fresh tangerines. Well-hopped throughout, citrus and spruce mix for a nice show of the hopping. The body seems thin and too watery for an Impy IPA. Nice flavors, and some decent complexity, just not substantive enough to support everything going on here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a really nice IPA. A very clean, citrus taste with a hint of honey. Very smooth.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, herbal hops and toffee malts. The taste is melon, pine, citrus, woody hops. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness.

Draft in a flight at the brewery. Great hoppiness to this brew with a slight hint of sweetness, though not enough to completely cut the IPA. Balanced very well with the malts. Would definitely drink this one again.
