On tap PP Carlsbad. Wow, Hops, hops, and more hops. This one came close to knocking me off my feet, thank goodness I was sitting down. A delicious DIPA. Worth the trip to Carlsbad.

Poor Vato in Carlsbad location. 9% poured in full pint on Nitro??? Very creamy head, smooth with solid lacing. Canít get over this. Aroma of freshly cut lawn, slightly piney. Taste goes with mouthfeel, back to nitro presentation. Smooth dank and pleasing, peppery in the end.

Great hoppy beer. Thick oily hop residue in flavor.....a good thing. Similar to the Russian river IPAs. Hops trickled down tongue and lasted and lasted. Awesome to say least.

Pours clear amber with a nice white top that stays. Aroma is fruity but some rougher hops are also there. Earthy and down-to-earth IPA. Taste is very strong and powerful, hope overdose in a second, lots of very bitter stuff, rough and probably intentionally unbalanced. Reminds me mud, autumn and some frozen apples swinging on a tree. I forgot to mention - its also pretty good!

On tap at Harryís Hofbrau. Explosion if tropical fruit and citrus with a moderate woody aspect. Slight hazy dark orange with full white head. Taste is strong citrus, orange with forest floor and pine. Bread and slight caramel in moderate amounts balance the beer well. Wonderful.

On tap at Beer Baron. It pours a golden orange color with an off white head. The aroma is dank and bready with some orange and a little cookie-like malt. The flavor is spicy/floral hops with some cookie, light caramel, dank, citrus and pine. Pretty enjoyable and great hop character, but a little too heavy on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 11/12/11 on draft at the Three Floyds Anniversary party. Pours clear bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is hoppy resin with a ton of citrus and some caramel malt. The flavor is tropical fruit, dank resin hops, citrus peel, and caramel. The body is medium and oily with tons of resin bitterness and tropical fruit hops.

"a bigger body than their regular ipa and black ipa...otherwise both of those beers are better. maybe a different hop profile, or maybe the hops in this beer had to battle the malt too much. quite good, but not quite great!"

After reading some of these comments I found a surprising amount of disparities. Poor Manís has been a great double IPA for years. However; the English will find it hoppy and the east side of the US will not like the malt character. This is a legitimate west coast 2x IPA, honey color, high gravity, light body and grape-fruity! Itís as bitter as someone that you left at prom and just as amazing. Get a few
