COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Expect your taste buds to be rudely awakened and temporarily disabled by the plethora of hops used in this IPA. Expect a brutally bitter beginning followed by a mild citrus aftertaste.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Perfume and citrus on the nose, wafting above golden amber ale with a nice white head. Slight haze and good carbonation. This is hop resin. The bitterness is the show - all the way. Very resinous, citrus and rather astringent. Normally I like my IPAs right out of the fridge, but you want this one to warm to let the body help balance the bitterness. If you want DIPA hoppiness without the gravity of a DIPA this is your beer.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a clear / hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, along with vegetal and skunky herbal hops. Flavour reveals notes of skunky vegetal herbal hops, some pine, and some modest residual sugar. Very nicely balanced, with load of hops. Very nice stuff.

Prufrockstar (1164) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Draft at uber. Clear dark amber, white head, good lacing. Aroma is all pine and litter box, but taste brings in tons of citrus. Moderately sweet with big bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: a NW classic I should have rated long ago.

Great ipa but here it lacked lacing of any sort. Slightly resiny and fruity and higher abv than most, but not in a distracting way.

umich03jm (2181) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a hazy light amber color with a small head that fades to a thin white ring. Aroma is slightly dank with some nice floral, pine, and light citrus hops. Tastes slightly juicy at first and quickly turns very bitter. Flowers, pine, and citrus hops balance each other well. Remains smooth despite the rather strong bitterness. Really enjoyable IPA.

maxwelldeux (3808) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy copper color with a fairly thick off-white head on it. Nose is definitely hop-forward, with some floral and grassy elements to it. Taste is moderately bitter, but doesn’t taste too fresh, which is unfortunate. Still a decent drink.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught at Brews Almighty, Everett, 4.8% ABV
Hazy amber color with compact head. Hoppy aroma, not extremely strong, with a light animal side. Good body strength, more than expected; the toffee malt is mostly evident, yet overwhelmed by the strong hopping; the flavor is caramelly, but also with plenty of resiny hops.
Good, but not elegant.

Lothore (556) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A - Pours a tangerine hue with a healthy , 1.5 finger head. S - Deeply malty. Caramel. Wheat. T - Starts off with a punch of bitter hops and backs off into citrus notes with hints of orange and grapefruit and slight lingering bitterness. M- Medium bodied with a slightly watery finish. D - Overall a superb beer. Absolutely wonderful example of the style.

Draft pour. Piney, floral aroma. A storm of hops in this IPA. This is everything I look for in an IPA. Loved it.
