With 78 IBUs. Our version of a West Coast IPA- brewed in the San Diego style. This massively hoppy beer gets its flavor and attitude from no less than five hop varieties including Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit.

Sampled at a gathering of TN Ratebeerians a couple months ago; thanks to Beer Hawk (via trade with Vac). West Coast hops bite the nose at first, giving way to grapefruit, grass and toast (nice conglomeration of aromas). Thin looking in the glass; head diminishes to a dusting. Sub-surface "racing" explodes toward the surface, showing very active carbonation. Piny herbal hops linger long after the swallow. Grassy notes shoot all the way through, integrating well with unfermented malt sugars. The bitterness has a metal character. The high IBU count dries out the finish nicely. Very solid IPA.

Draught. Dark orange-copper with a small white head and lacing. The aroma has a lot of fresh oranges and tangerine-style hops with a surprising level of sweetness. Dark, bready flavour along with chewy biscuit and ridiculously long and piney hops. Superb, you can’t even sense that this is anywhere near 7%.
Pint at Pizza Port Carlsbad on March 25, 2007.

Last beer of the night as the Flames are knocked out of the playoffs in double OT. Good clean higher ABV IPA. Delicious hoppy beer. Juicy. More hop than malt. Delicious deep hoppy aroma.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours orange/amber with a huge off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, pine, perhaps a little hint of fruit. The flavor is sweet, citrusy, floral, pine, caramel, spices, and a hoppy bitter finish.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 bottle-pours bright orange with a small frothy white head. floral notes, but you can tell this one has had some age on it. definately not a pungent attack of hops-very subdued and somewhat dusty in a sense. Wish this was fresh. for what it was, it was definately not bad. lots of floral hop flavor which would be a citric bomb when fresh i bet. carbonation is sharp, showing its oxidization again. definately need to revisit this one! re-rate at the brewery-finally a fresh sample-fresh citrus on the nose-tangerines, oranges and pineapple-passionfruit. the flavors exhibit these flavors and even though this was fresh, the old versions have that citrus in the flavors as well. a very good ipa!

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2007
Off-white fluffy head. Clear copper body. Nice Simcoe-like hop aroma with good amounts of citrus and pine and sweetened black pepper. Flavor is a bit sweeter, but nice nonetheless. Start with basic sweet caramelly malt, then dries out a little bit more with hop resins. Some dull grasses too. Pretty good overall, perhaps would get better if it was fresher.

Bomber at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured hazy orange with chunks of white head that left splotchy lacing. Piney, citrus flavor. Very bitter finish. A rare treat for the east coast.

Bottle. Sampled at Tria Fermentation School Lost Abbey class 4/16/07. Amber color with a moderately large white head. Aroma is all hops, with a bit of grapefruit. Hop resins coat the mouth and stick around for a long, hoppy finish.
