Courtesy my Secret Santa. Thank you, sir. Meh. I was expecting a lot more from a beer calling itself a hop bomb from the west coast. Aroma was OK. Piney hops and and sticky malt. Pour was a nice burnt orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was sticky and green with the pine and grapefruit hops very muted and muddled with a weird flat ginger ale flavor. Hard to explain. Nice carbonation. Definitely drinkable but there’s a lot better out there.

Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/17/2015. The beer is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, piney hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, pine and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy bubbly white head. Tastes like alcohol, sweet citrus, caramel, cough syrup. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, citrus, hops, booze.

Dark Amber color. Clean malty mouth, slightly astringent. Big malty backbone with fairly decent hops. Not bad.

22 ounce bomber bottle at Riverside market pours a copper color with moderate off whitehead. Nice floral and Pine aromas. A lot harsh on the end owe my wife.

This beer surprised me it had an intense floral nose with a strong balanced bitterness for a clean smooth finish. On the bottle it says they used Galaxy and Summer hops which give it the tropical flavors of passion fruit and pineapple. Definitely seek out! Cheers!!

patricks110 (1812) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
One of my favorite styles, but a bit meh for me. Nice juicy citrus notes, light tropical fruit and hop notes play off bready and grainy malt notes. The middle is overly malty sweet with grainy notes and light citrus and fruit flavours. The finish has solid bitterness and mild resin notes but overly boozy. The mouthfeel is watery almost and takes away from the brew.

RCx240 (94) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber, foamy white head with good retention, lacing. Aroma is citrus, resin, nuts, bread, and grass. Taste is abundantly citrus and floral, finishing bitter and astringent. Lighter body than one would expect for a Double IPA. Average carbonation, slightly sticky texture, lingering finish. Very nice for hop lovers.
