This beer kicks my ass. 11%. Thick and wet, with extremely high bitterness tempered by a citrus kick. Surprisingly, the sharpness of the alcohol is mellowed by the IBU’s (which I find odd) and the flowery citrus, which makes this beer really easy to drink despite being so strong. A couple of these and you’re well on your way to being inebriated. Darker color; amber in the sunlight. I only tried a taster, but I immediately wanted a peppered steak to go with it. Not a party beer. Drink it slowly and converse.

Draft at source. Pale golden pour. Heavy aroma of pine, garlic, onion, and to a lesser extent some mango/fruit. Some sweet, biscuity malt. Full flavor that follows suit with initial malt sweetness that gives way to pungent pine/onion/garlic. Full, juicy, and flavorful. Reminds me a bit of Founders Double Trouble. Excellent, excellent brew.

This thing is dank. I don't use the word dank, either. Renegade is by W 6th, which is dispensary central. Very fitting. I love G'Knight, this is like it on steroids. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery May 11th, although I usually have a taster of this whenever I’m at the brewery. Pours gold. Aroma of grassy & floral hops. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of floral and grassy hops, pink grapefruit, bold malts, light spice. Overall very rich, tasty and easy to drink relative to the ABV.

Tap. Big and citrusy. Extremely bitter throughout with a wet mouthful. A bit muddled with a sweet mouthfeel and finish. Dangerously drinkable.

Snifter at the brewery. This guy is pretty malty, but definitely not too much so. The sweetness provides a little balance and takes away a little of the bite, but doesn’t interfere with the rich hop aroma and flavor. The aroma has plenty of piney, garlicky character with a grapefruit backdrop. This translates well into the flavor. Plenty of clear, crisp hop bouquet. It has a sharp, dank herbal finish. Lots of lingering garlic and evergreen. Really clean, well made and "balanced".

Draft at the Publik House. Pours a hazy orange color with no head. Strong, grapefruit aroma with a ton of hops. Amazing brew.

Can with "offensively delicious" printed around the top. Hmmm. Cloudy peach colored pour with fluffy tan head. Piney, citrusy spicy aroma: hints of nutmeg. Bitter with tobacco and some nice smooth backbone. Nice long bitter linger. Good and maybe even better on a long hike.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Poured a hazy, golden orange with a one-finger, fluffy white head an great lacing. Smell is huge pine, grass, resin, and weed. Just smells super dank. Taste is super piney, grassy, and dank; big notes of resin, grapefruit, and biscuit with a huge bitter finish and light alcoholic burn. Not too bad though as this beer is thoroughly enjoyable for 11%+ ABV. Stick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Literally tastes like weed in a liquid form; damn tasty DIPA.

On tap at Renegade. I mostly ordered this just to see how it stacks up to Alpine Exponential Hoppiness even though I knew it wouldn’t hold a candle. I must say that while Alpine has nothing to worry about this was surprisingly good. I thought I was tasting Columbus hops and was surprised to learn it was Summit which I normally find disgusting. This was extremely hoppy and thick so I was glad I only had a 3oz taster. Still, worthwhile and recommended for all hopheads. Serving type: on-tap
