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.

12 oz. bottle, sent from ekoerper (thanks a lot, Ed), pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Highly aromatic on the nose with tropical fruits, citrus and resinous hops, a bit of Belgian yeast and some caramel malt backing. Flavour is every bit as lovely, with juicy tropical fruits (grapefruit, mango especially), citrus fruits, loads of citrus and resinous hops, and a perfect amount of caramel malt for support. Really wonderful flavours, all working in harmony. Drinks so easily - could drink litres of this stuff. A splendid IIPA that I think deserves higher ratings (even at 96).

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.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy copper with an off white head. Citrus hop nose. Flavors of pine resin, grapefruit and a caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied. Slightly sweet finish.

Bottle from Johns Grocery. Rich golden amber pour with a white spotty head. Really nice citrus hop aroma. Taste is citrus plus something like mint leaves. Really nice brew!

Bonus bottle from CanIHaveFourBeers. Thanks! strong danky aroma reminiscent of citra. hazy red pout into glass. bottle looked like it was going to gush, but looked funny. Wow, obnoxiously hoppy bitterness and flavor. a bit thin on the mouthfeel with a lingering hop presence that is almost peppermint like. I think the hops are making my eyes water. wow. intensely hoppy.
