COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he choose. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A provocative 85 IBUs reverberates cleanly through this Double IPA. True hop saturation from kettle boil to dry hop cellaring dominates this elegant and lustful sensory enchantment. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 19.2 Plato, now 9% ABV following the always 100% natural bottle fermentation. Luscious English Maris Otter malt is the essential heart of this voluptuous double IPA. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy now.

What a great beer, everything you would look for in a well balanced double IPA. a great west coast style IPA from the heart of America. this should be a year round beer. I would by it (if it was available in PA) by the keg. reminds me of a fuller bodied sculpin.

Bottle enjoyed last night from Mr. Ed. WILBUUURRR! Pours gold with a big foam off white head that leaves a layer of lacing. Nose of pine and grapefruit. Taste is plenty bitter, adds a layer of mango and mellon midway. Body is full. How much weed does on have to do to make a sitcom around the concept of a talking horse?

Dragonfly1 (495) - Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle ftom Mars Cheese Castle. Pours much clearer and lighter thsn expected, a light orange with minimal foam. Aroms is musty, earthy, with orange peel and alcohol. This is thick and syrupy. Very prickly carbonation, taste is still musty, hops are very bitter, although the bitterness isnít defined... not citrus or floral, i guess maybe more on the piney side of things. This is a good beer, but overall pretty straightforward. Expecting more for $14.00 a 4-pack.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Aroma is pine, citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit//berries, mild sweetness, hop resin, malts and a grassy/bitter finish. Well crafted IIPAs this good are not a dime a dozen.

Bottle to snifter. Light kumquat flesh color with a thin but clingy white head. Decent lace. Aroma is a delightfully dank tropical fragrance. Citra "fuel" up front but lots of tropical fruit smells. Taste is pretty nice. Same tropical fruit flavor but distributed in a layered and complex way throughout the taste. A sip of this followed by a sip of water makes me think of Juicy Fruit gum,. Light bodied with a dry finish. Again, pretty freaking nice.
