COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally Beer Camp #29 from 06/2010. Brewed by Chris and Joe DeCicco, in conjunction with Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp, an American Double IPA that is as formidable as its Sci-Fi monster namesake. Ghidorah is golden-amber in color, with a pronounced hop-forward presence. Grassy, resinous, and citrus peel dominate the aroma. It has significant malt body, which adds balance to the beer, but the malt quickly subsides toward a firm bitter finish.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Yellow/gold and hazy with some white head. Aroma is surprisingly light, with some grassy hops and citrus. Full bodied and very bitter, citrus and herb comes out more on the palate. Long, bitter finish. Not a huge fan.

Tap at RnH. Bright citrus nose, excellent fresh hop, very green. A good bit of malt sweetness in the flavor, with a slightly muddy finish. Kind of sloppily presented.

Hazed yellowish, white lacey head. Fruity nose, mango and lemon to be exact with nice sweetness making the fruitiness more vivid. Clean, bitter flavors...citrus rind and lemon hop characteristics are nice, clean and strong. Quite nice actually since I haven’t really liked much of sierra’s ipas...but hey, this works.

Nephilium (1259) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Picked up a growler of this at Heinen’s for the kick off of Cleveland Beer Week. Strong hop presence to start off with, strong citrus notes. Pours a clear, light amber, with a full white head. Nice hop forward bite, with a touch of malt sweetness in the back end. Alcohol bite is there, but subtle. A nice solid IIPA.

On tap at alpine brewing. Clear golden pour small white head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops. Taste nice balanced bitterness with a nice malt backbone. Good carb. Very enjoyable.
