COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew is for hop huggers. We’ve added over 2-1/2 times the hops of our Hop Wrangler IPA with four varieties of hops in six massive hop additions. With over 1-1/2 times the barley of our normal beers, our grist hopper was nearly overflowing. Fermentation with the same Belgian yeast as our Hop Wrangler IPA rounds out this bold beer.

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy dark amber with a generous, long-lasting 2" rocky off-white head, fluffy blobs of lace. Taste is bold malt that exposes a definite burst of milk chocolate as it moves to a strong hoppy ending that drifts through a long finish without losing any of the stuff it started with. A big brew, original, balanced, and great tasting. High recommendations.

Shared bottle. Very good DIPA! Interesting blend of citrusy American hops and peppery Belgian yeast. Aroma is of oranges with a peppery background. Very drinkable DIPA that I will continue to seek out while in Iowa.

Pours amber with small white head. Aroma is some citrus and tropical fruit with a bit of spruce mixed in. Taste was bitter with grapefruit shining through, but this tasted more like a Belgian than a double IPA.

Deep orange/amber color out of the stubby bottle with a lasting sticky off white head. The initial nose was a pine tree forest that settled into a sweet mix of citrus candy and pine. Big syrupy mouth feel. Tons of malt under even more candied grapefruit rind and orange peel. Nicely balanced big hop beer.

Tap at Peace Tree brewery. Clear copper with a white head. Nose is a lot of citrus hops and a little malt. Also orange and banana. Like it.

It was okay. Middle of the road IPA. Good nose and balanced hops but had an overly dry bitter finish.

Pours a nice burnt orange. Aromas are very dank. Resinous and meaty. Spicy too. Flavors are resinous and hoppy. Flavor dies a tad too quickly for me. Otherwise really good.
