UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Anyother very well made IPA, this is more bitter than an average double IPA, especially on the finish, the front hop flavors are piney adn citrusy. The citrus carries throughout. Delicious!

On tap at The Brickskeller during its "Whet" Hop Ales event with Tomme Arthur. Pours a light golden color with not too much head, but almost all the initial foams stays on the sides of the glass. The nose brings some strong notes of pine and floral hops. The taste adds in some citric character along with the pine and floral elements of the nose. The finish is really bitter and quite dry. Quite good, but for me the Get Wet IPA out of Ocean Beach was the clear hop winner of the evening. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-29-2010

A DIPA worth trying. Orange amarillo fragrant hops. Smooth drinker, this is balanced, no question its well malted, and well hopped. Not especially drinkable, its still a good DIPA.Orange body, lacey full press 2" white foamy head.Bottles from both Michael- P. and Ryan August.

22 oz. bottle from Chuck’s 85th. This has a hazy orange appearance with a tinge of brown throughout. The fluffy head is rather nice, and this provides the perfect appearance, in my eyes. This has a fresh orange, citrus aroma. Fairly pungent, considering it’s still rather cold. Some malt sweetness comes through, but it’s not enough to get in the way, or anything. Not many dimensions on the nose, but this one is all taste. Fresh grapefruit, orange, and plenty of citrus blasting my taste buds. Wow, this is damn near exceptional. Slight alcohol flavor coming through, but it’s really nothing terribly intrusive. This is some solid stuff, and I’m glad to FINALLY see it on the shelves around these parts. This beer is quite nice, when talking about its texture. Solid, solid, solid stuff here.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a sticky white head. Aroma is tropical hops, pineapple, citrus, caramel, malt. Flavor is bitter piney hops, with a lightly sweet but not too sweet citrus finish. Of note the bottle has a freakish amount of sediment which detracts from the appearance of the pour, but in no way effects anything else.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle: Amber-orange color. Super cloudy, with huge chunks of god knows what ... tons of sediment. Big, bold hops right off the bat. Cake-like malt sweetness. Very citrusy. Great hop aromas -- floral and piney. Grapefruit sharpness in the finish and aftertaste. Good.

Courtesy of markwise. Pours gold to copper with off white head. The aroma is firm yumminess with grapefruit, tangelo, apricot and tree sap all coming together to create a wonderful odor. The taste is robustly bitter with grapefruit, orange peel, tangelo and loads of pine resin. It amazingly gets more and more bitter to midway and into the finish. It leaves a dry bitter goodness behind for a while.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2011
22 oz bottle from Binnys (Naperville, IL). Happy to see this, the apparent heir to Hop 15 (A great beer on tap, but a less than stellar bottle release). Pours a nice deep orange amber hue, well hazed, with a huge frothy tannish beige head, keeps very big and laces wel. Aromas are a big blast of citrusy hops, grapefruit and lemons intertwine with oranges, toffe, caramel, bread and biscuity malts. Touches of florals, melon, grass, and lively hopping of moderate bitterness killing out a more substantial malt body. Initial is fuller end of medium bodied, a pronounced hop bitterness up front lightens it up. Strong lemon, florals, grass, and grapefruit juice. Touches of sweeter malts thicken it up but give us some sweeter breads, toffee, and biscuits overall. A nice full bitterness, not deadened by age, instead still fairly fresh. Aromas is quite nice, hops are a bit harsh and lack the complexity to make it a true top tier DIPA on the palate, but overall it’s solid, a great strong bitterness and no age to tell. Hop strength is key. Strong solid bitterness, no age. lacks a bit from complexity of said hops, but maybe that’s just because there is a ton. Sweetness is kept at bay properly. Solid DIPA.

Thanks to drunkenpolak for sharing! Pours cat pee yellow with a large fluffy head. Cat grass aromas and floral like a fresh litter box. Flavors of fresh cat grass and pineapple, tangerine and mango. Purrfectly done. RIP Mongo
