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.

22 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a medium eggshell head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of pine hops, grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, and pine resin. Flavor follows suit nicely: bitter hops, plenty of pine, a good malt backbone, balancing caramel sweetness, and a lot of grapefruit. Medium bodied, with a malty grapefruit juice mouthfeel. Bitter, citrusy finish. Alcohol is almost completely hidden. Well-balanced DIPA. Very nice.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a hazed golden body and a small white head. Aroma of pine, tangerine and orange. Taste is pine, caramel and orange. Alcohol is well hidden, and I didn’t realize this was an IIPA when drinking it, so it has a decent amount of drinkability on that part. Light carbonation.

Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

Draught @ the brew pub. Pours a clear copper color with a medium creamy beige head that is mostly lasting and leaves sporadic lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, a little spicey, fruity (oranges and some dark fruit), with the slightest of floral notes. The flavor is more caramel malt, slight toffee, nectarines, slight alcohol, and a decent bitter finish. Definetl more solid than the regular IPA.

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2008
On tap at GTMW. Poured clear, rich caramel with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit and spicy black peppery notes upfront, which formed an interesting contrast.. pale malts and grapefruit deeper down, with detectable alcohol warmth.. quite nice. The flavor had juicy grapefruit and pineapple throughout with black peppery alcohol and cloves surrounding.. warmer finish with a thick, sweet impression. Warm on the palate and heavier-bodied with OK balance.. the strength threw it off a little.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Pours a transparent orange amber with a thin, wispy lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel malts and a hint of light fruity notes with a good fresh grapefruity hoppy nose. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of caramel malty sweetness and a good hop balance before a bittersweet slightly drier finish. A pretty good malt-heavy IIPA.

drowland (7111) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Big hop aroma that strikes me as the grassy variety. The flavor is big sweet hops that are bitter but not too much and the hops are all citrus. This reminds me of my favorite DIPA - Hopslam - but just not quite as flavorful all around. Very good, though.
