COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It just wasn’t enough to use a blend of 5 varieties of hops in our India Pale Ale. We needed more. We needed to go wholehog! So, we added a sixth hop and created a more pronounced hop nose and a massive hop flavor for our American twist to this legendary style.

Lubiere (12572) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A murky hazed dark amber IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice earthy biscuitty malt with resinous floral hops, with some catnip notes and light spruce notes. In mouth, a smooth herbaceous biscuit malt, with grassy and floral hops, attenuated with age, but still very solid. Bottle more than a year old.

crossovert (10892) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Got it well after its original release, odd hop choices, dominating malt, this is about as low as DIPA quality goes, but it was drinkable at least, moreso than say a GUBNA.
