this is killer stuff. If you like Hops this is as close to chewing on a fresh hop cone as you can get. Delicious and dangerously drinkable. Good stuff y’all!

This is a premium imperial india pale ale. Has all the resiney goodness of a great hop without any of the grapefruit and bitter after taste. Top notch.

Bottle pour into a pint for this brew. 2013 vintage. Simcoe comes through strong on this awesome dipa.

Pours an cloudy orange amber with a small white head, some mild lacing. Aroma of citrus pine hops, some orange peel, caramel malt, fruity and yeast notes. Taste has sweet caramel malt, bitter orange peel, yeast and fruit citrus pine hops. A full body, smooth and slight sticky mouth feel with sweet bitter notes on the tongue. Finishes with sweet caramel malt and sweet bitter orange peel pine hops on the end is quite bitter. This brew seems to be dominated by hops. Overall an imperial IPA to the end.

Obviously very well hopped, sweet, but the character is overwhelmed by the alcohol here.

Bottle. I was hoping this would live up to the "Hopslam replacement" hype I was hearing, but it doesn't even belong in the same sentence. Overly boozy, no semblance of balance. I can see why some people would like it, but this isn't my speed.

Bottle to glass. Lots of pine in the initial blast followed by hop blast. Good palate.

Very nice. Two inches of light foam. Not overly intense. Nice. Drinkable without being overwhelming.

Cask at the American beer festival 2013, White Horse, Parsons Green, London. An orange/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, pine, citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, pine, citrus/tropical fruit, bitter. Excellent DIPA.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 On tap at independent ale house in rapid city. Nice green hop aromas. Very bitter hoppy and resiny flavours. This one hits back pretty hard. Very nice.
