This colossal India Pale Ale will surprise you with a complex malt character backing an enormous hopping rate! We aged this beer on "wet hops" delivering a spicy overtone to this already complex pint of deliciousness!

Dogbrick (10038) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of sweet malt and grapefruit. The finish is hoppy up front and leaves an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draught at Monroeville: Aroma of hops, hop oil, and caramel malts. Poured amber/copper in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, caramel malts, and some citrus. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Soft carbonation. Sweet, slightly bitter, hop finish. 9.2%ABV is totally hidden.

Naka (717) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the Pour House. A deep clear amber red color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma has a lot of brown sugar and bitter grapefruit. My first impression is that the alcohol in this is pretty subdued for how high the ABV is. At first taste, it isnít that bitter, but it grows on the tongue. A juicy grapefruit sweetness with some caramel that attempts to balance it out. However, the bitter just keeps getting stronger, and becomes a little bit overpowering. There are some peach and floral notes in there as well. The body feels heavy, but is sort of watery without much carb.

Nate (3824) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2007
On tap at the Pour House. Has a very mild nose to it, contrary to expectations. Subtle grapefruit, citrus rinds, bitter. Coppery amber clear with a bit of chill haze, lacing off-white foamy head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with good malty sweetness, caramel, then the hops hit. Bitter throughout the rest, coating the entire palate. Starts with mild floral-fruity notes, then descends to a visceral chalky citrus-rind eye-squinching bitterness that takes care of any sweetness lingering about. Mild alcohol warming. Subtle apricot flavors, too.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5787) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a murky bronze-brown with a large creamy khaki head. The aroma was moderately sweet and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, tangy and malty with an intense floral and fruity presence that was a bit harsh. The finish was long, bitter and dry.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2007
On tap at the Pour House. Hazy caramel, off white head. Aroma is hops, caramel, peat. Flavor is hops, peat, malt, wheat, vanilla. The alcohol is well hidden and even though I can detect the peat flavor, itís not too wet dog or wet barn.
