First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!

Sampled on 4/20/2012. This double IPA pours a medium to dark orange color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet, hint of orange and citrus. A medium bodied Imperial India Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet, with a touch or orange and orange peel. The hops are citrusy and herbal with some orange. Decent carbonation. Nice malt sweetness, but the hosp seem a little off somehow. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

arondee (598) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours a clear orange color with a very small white head and decent carbonation. Aroma is hops and not much else. The taste is nice and hoppy with a decent malt backbone but it’s not very sweet, pretty well balanced. Overall a nice IPA.

Bartzilla (586) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Great name for a beer that fully illustrates the flavor. This does taste like sauce made out of hops. And, again, with the $3.99 price on the bomber. I was sad to see my shop was out of this when I recently went there. I should have bought some to stock up. And by stock up, I mean drink all of them in one night because my "Off switch" would be passing out on my couch after a bunch of 8.1% bombers.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2012
An excellent specimen with a rich golden color and a standing head. Standard aromatics, full nectar weight with a softness on the tongue and good carbonation. This brew is well balanced and sips nicely. A classic brew.
