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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Tap at RNH. Pours a hazed light gold with a thin head lasting with good lace. Aroma is mango, pine citrus loaded with fresh hops all around, dragonfruit, guava, and pear. Flavor is dank stinky weed smoke with green fresh piny and citrus hops, then more tropical notes from amarillo, simcoe, etc, peach, mango, resin, min and alight biscuit malt in the back. Finish is nice sticky tacky hop bitterness. Very nice.

On tap at Oliver Twist. Hazy amber with a small head. Delicious citrussy hop nose nose followed by intense grapefruity and exotic fruity hop flavours. A wonderful IPA.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2010
On tap at Rattle n Hum during their Sierra Nevada event. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Spicy pineapple and citrus on the nose. Big stick malt, toast and a big earthy character. A tiny bit of cat pee aromas show up as it warms, but it was tasty enough that I doubt a lot of people let it warm much at all. Long grapefruit finish.

Poured a medium golden ale. Piny, grassy hop nose. Flavor is big hops piny, and sticky. It sneaks up on you flavor wise. Finish is bitter and lingers on.  Nice

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
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.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2010
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.
