A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Orange amber pour with a fluffy white head. Sweet caramel malts, resiny, piney and citrus hops on the nose. Thick, sticky, resiny hops throughout the flavor with backing sweetness. Solid bitter end that lingers around for awhile. Pretty tasty.

12 oz bottler. Pours a copper color with a soapy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste is just like nose. Citrus and pine with a subtle caramel to balance. Nice Imperial. Not as bitter as the nose would lead to believe. Dry citrus rindy finish.

Pours a rusty orange with an off white head and sweet aroma of grapefruit and hops. Taste is sweet, lots of hoppy, grapefruit, citrus, and caramel flavor with a butter, dry finish. Delicious DIPA, very drinkable and well hidden alcohol at 9 abv

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2013
From bottle. Pours deep golden amber with decent head. Aroma is all pine and that typical boozy Imperial aroma. Taste follows but balanced with caramel malt and smoothed out. Finish is clean.

wmubronco1992 (603) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Pours a very murky amber. Small off white head. Mild pine aroma. Flavor is very well balance between the grapefruit bitterness and the caramel sweetness. Hops are very mutted, maybe due to the age. Thick, mildly sticky, palate. Very enjoyable, but not worth $5.50 I paid for a bottle.

cheap (3942) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
On tap at the monaca bocktwon. Big hoppy aroma. Sweet pine or spruce taste. Yes, taste is big bitter hting. No co2 at all. There is a sloght burning sensation on the tongue. Going down the hatch I think I’m getting a a little dizzy, wew. Finish is mouth coating soapy handsoap. not for the fainthearted lager lover, fer sure.
