COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship IPA is a well-disciplined balance of Simcoe and other Northwestern hops that carry the seeker into vibrant flavors of passion and citrus fruit with impressions of earthy aromas. This interplay of hops has a malty backbone to balance its rich mouth feel. Guru IPA, your path to hoppy enlightenment.

StefanSD (2188) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Growler courtesy of jbruner. Thanks. Pours a light brown color with a big fluffy off-white head that has very good retention. The aroma is big and bold with fresh grapefruit, mangoes, peaches and some pine. The taste does not exactly follow the nose, there is a bitter grapefruit presence, but its really the malts that drive this bus. There is big rich malty character with loads of toffee, caramel, bread dough and some biscuit. Plenty of complex hops compliment the big malt character--I can pick out pineapple, grapefruit, melons and pine resins. The palate is full, smooth and viscous; but also a bit greasy. The carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and a bit bitter-sweet. Overall: Very nice take on the DIPA, very tasty. Just wanna add that this paired most excellently with Reggiano parma cheese, unsalted almonds and Castelvetrano olives as nibble food.

A straight solid IPA. Amber colored with good lacing. Lots of grapefruit and floral notes in the nose. Solid body with nice bitter finish. Drinkable and smooth.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden amber color with a white head. Floral citrusy grapefruit pops in the aroma. Wet smooth mouthfeel. Tons of grapefruit a bit of tar and toasted mall flavors.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Proof Railroad Square ][ $2 ][ Flared Taster ][ 8.28.14 ]
>> Great off-white to tan lacing above a clear amber pour. Would prefer a lighter SRM for hoppy pale beers. Nose is salty, black tea, dried leaves. Taste is malty, piney, tea leaves. Mild acidic balance finish, mild oil, sweeter. More on the amber ale side than IPA.

burg326 (3863) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Poured a dark orange amber from the growler with aromas of pine, citrus, light resin aromas and some biscuit. Flavors match the aromas dramas hoppy up front with some nice biscuit and followed by some light bitterness. Thanks to the in laws for grabbing me this one.

Just a damn fine Imperial IPA. Proof Brewing of Tallahassee continues to break new ground and is rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with. Keep an eye on these guys!

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Dark, chestnut colored beer - appeared to be clear, with a good fluffy head. Nice hoppy aroma - resinous, lotsa Galaxy. Chewy mouth. The beer itself has a dense bread/biscuit flavor, with hops and dry caramel. Medium-heavy mouthfeel. Warming and chummy. As good as this was, it lost in a back-to-back with the Warpath IPA. On tap, Proof, W Tennessee.

Pour from a growler at RBWG. Pours a clear amber with some off-white bubbles. Notes of caramel, tea and other leafy notes, and pine resin. Medium-bodied, with low-to-moderate carbonation and a sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Simple DIPA.

I miss this beer. Smelled of earthy/piney hops and had a great addition of slightly citrusy hops in the taste. This sure packed a punch at 9% ABV too.
