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.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 Bottle… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is restrained, but offers notes of biscuit, earthy hops and a touch of either toffee, caramel or praline - I can’t decide - and just a whisper of acidity. Full-bodied and very creamy with modest carbonation. Decent balance. Toffee and caramel sweetness up front; earthy, astringent bitterness and a rumor of tanginess on the backside. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. Kudos to otakuden for providing the bottle!

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear deep copper with frothy, well-retained off-white head. Nose is tropical citrus including grapefruit and pineapple, caramel malt, black peppery hops. Tastes of syrupy caramel malt, with a pretty thick, rich palate heft, and flavors of grapefruit, caramel malt, tangerine, and sticky resiny hops. Finishes somewhat sweet, fruity, and hoppy.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a near white head head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some light grassy hops with sweet grains snd a strong hay note. Flavor is similar with a light grassy hop note that is dominated by sweet grains and hay.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2012
12oz bottle. Good thin white head. Nice mildly hazy amber / orange color. Decent lace. Smooth lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice clean bitter taste. Good resin and citrus aroma, pine. Bigger body. Solid IPA, and reasonably drinkable.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle as an extra in a trade with illinismitty- thanks, Sean! Pours a clear copper color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of orange citrus, caramel, biscuity malts, earthy notes, and light piney hops. Flavor of sweet caramel malts, bread, piney hops, resin, and metallic and soapy notes. Light-bodied, with low-medium carbonation and a bitter finish. Pretty simple and light in the mouth for a DIPA, but it’s okay. Just weak for the style.

douglas88 (8400) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. A sweet fruity hop aroma. The flavor is full of fruity hops, some bitterness that lingers on your palate, caramel malts, quite dry. Enjoyable.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Floral hoppy aroma with toffee crystal malts. The flavor her boozy and had floral hops and herbal notes. Not a great IPA, but decent nonetheless.
