COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads rejoice! This strong IPA takes the style to a new level. It’s a big Imperial IPA packed with Nugget, Palisade, and Amarillo hops. Previously 8.2%.

Clearly one of the best beers for the bang. Also clearly better on draught. If you must drink from the bottle, be sure to pour into a snifter or other similar large-rimmed glass to get the full-on effect. This continues to be one of the brewery’s best sellers.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Awesome grapefruit aroma, astringent and tart. Hop oils. Glorious. Medium amber clear with small off-white foamy head. Medium carb and medium watery body. Silky. Great big bitter taste, hoppy and crisp. Grapefruit, and not very sweet. Big bitter finish and persistant after. A very good strong ale.

Rated 9/15/07 - Draft sample at brewpub. Copper/amber color. Little head. Hoppy nose, citrus and flower, pretty dominant. Floor and citrus flavor, very nice hop bitterness. Excellent IIPA. A favorite of mine.

Lightly hazed orange copper color. Full head of lasting taupe bubbles. I want to say typical, but actually a touch more balanced than typical as of late aromas. Scents of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, along with the zest. Caramel and pale malts drift in and out. Full nose without getting overbearing or overdone. Light pale malt sweetness in the beginning that gives itself up to light citrus, hints of pine and a touch of alcohol. Finish is dry and slightly woody. I find this one to be quite true to form and enjoyable. For me there is something about a "true" IPA that just warms my cockles. Linger has a light nuttiness along with dried malt and oats. Not one that I would enjoy everyday, but after a long journey or day this one, to quote mj, rocks. Thanks to Ty5592 for the bottle.

Very good try for a young Brewery! Nice stong hops smell as well as taste. Maybe bananas as well, with a good walming feeling down the throat. Not light or watery holds its taste well. I believe an up and coming brewery!

Marijuana all over this one. In the aroma and it tasted like I had a super skunky nugget in my mouth. More over, the pine and resin is what dominated the aroma, giving it that herbal quality. Taste was piney, with also lots of citrus and bitterness as well.

Orange-amber body with a faint haze and a receding off-white head. Wonderful fresh hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, mango, cedar, and sweet crystal malt with a quality almost like maple. Great malt character for a DIPA; comes across like an imperial red. Nice fresh hop flavors and aggressive, scouring bitterness. Terrific beer that reminds me that very few beers beat a fresh DIPA from a high quality brewpub.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2007
Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Very dark, hazy brown brew with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with moderate spice and resiny aroma. Some fantastic fresh pineapple and other tropical fruits over a soft toast, caramel and light chocolate maltiness. Very soft wheaty texture. Low to moderate carbonation accentuates the hops brilliantly. As it warms, even more sweet tropical hops, mango, grapefruit, and pineapple come out. Moderate bitterness and a long dry hoppy finish. Awesome stuff.
