COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just can’t get enough of those hops. IPA’s seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear coppery orange with a medium foamy beige head with good retention. Aroma of toasted bread, biscuity malts, and mild piney and resinous hops, though rather mild on the hop character. Flavour of faded, muted piney hops, lots of caramel malt, toasted bread, and some wood. For a fresh bottle, this is surprisingly muted on the hops and features a much heavier caramel malt backbone without the often-accompanying sweetness from more malt-heavy IIPAs. Rather lively carbonation for the style, more so than I’d desire from an IPA. All in all, solid but with obvious flaws.

Drake (11791) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Paramus. Pours a hazy orange color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of resin, pine and floral hops with faint pale malts. The taste is big citrus, herbal and resin hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, average carbonation. Definitely on the dry and hoppy side, but a solid DIPA.

ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Strong aroma of citrus and pine hop scents and grass odors. Tastes follows suite with hop notes of grapefruit, orange rinds and pine. Not much malt flavor. A strong bitter  flavor which doesn’t quite follow into the aftertaste.  Palate is relatively thin, but doesn’t take away from the ale. Alcohol is noticeable on the palate, but not when not held. Overall, a very hoppy beer with little to no malt flavor and a strong bitterness.

jkwood04 (5281) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2012
22oz bottle in a solo cup. Pours amber. Aroma of citrusy hops plus some caramel malts. Flavor mainly of hops. Average texture. A decent beer.

Beerdedone (3228) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Big hoppy aroma of pine, citrus & caramel. Flavor was toasted malts, citrus, piney resin, caramel and a hint of grapefruit with a dry finish.

r464 (2269) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Hazy amber color with a foamy tan head. Very full with a floral, but sweet, hoppiness that is not out of balance. Very nice and punchy finish.

1more4dessert (334) - Upstate, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2012
clear copper with foamy white head and excellent lacing, light pine and cascade floral nose. Medium to light medium mouthfeel with no discernible ethanol even at 8%. Well balanced and drinkable though not to be construed as a DIPA. Really reminds me of SNPA

As said on the label: This ain’t for no mamma’s boys or daddy’s girl. This beer is truly extreme, the bitterness is something I have rarely experienced really before I got to this beer. Not only the bitterness is amazing, but the hops tastes and aromas are in my mouth and take their place a LOT. For any lover of true beer and true hop taste.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a clear golden/amber with a medium tan head. Very carameley aroma...where’s the hops!? Flavor is also pretty malty but adds some earthy/spicy hoppiness towards the finish, mouthfeel is lively and the finish is earthy and dry.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. Poured orange with a frothy off-white head that had a thin layer lasting and left good lace. Aroma of citrus and pine with a light malt packing. The flavor found orange citrus with a malt balance. Medium body, dry, and a medium bitterness.
