COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our hopping regime we went with Cascade and Nuggets in the boiling addition. Centennials were added every 5 minutes for the last 30 minutes of the boil. We added Crystals into the whirlpool. Dry hopping was done in both the fermentor after primary fermentation and the bright tank. We used a mixture of Chinook, Nuggets, and Sterlings in the fermentors and whole leaf Centennials in the bright tank.

Single bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a hazy light orange color. White head fades to nothing. Strong aroma of sweet burnt rubber and spice. Flavor is sweet and malty up front with layers of muddled hop bitterness. Nothing stands out. very strong finish with some fruity bitterness.

ippopotamo36 (349) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 7, 2014
On tap at Macche in Rome. Pours yellow/orange peel color, unfiltered with a white solid foamy head. Nose: background hint (very light) of caramel, speck ham. Mouth: smoked-fried bacon, lemon grass, blast of bitter hops. One of the most peculiar Imperial IPAs I have ever drunk! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Floral hops in the nose, and aroma, deep and complex hop flavors, had great hop finish.

A very hoppy, fresh and wonderful IPA. Long, fresh, delicious aftertaste. True, but distinct IPA made but one of the Northeast best breweries.

Now being dry hopped, love it before and love it more now. A fantastic American IPA.

drsordr (1236) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Draft sample at Hopgeist 2014 pour light gold. Nose dank earthy hop with some floral character. Taste more floral, citrus, and slight grassy hop. Fairly sweet early mid palate. Lingering bitter finish. Certainly don’t get the 120 ibu.

phikus (80) - syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit, citrus, alcohol and a touch of honey. Taste of citrus pine biscuit malt, grapefruit juicyness. They keep the juiciness well balancedcwith resinous pine characteristics. Works very well. This years is great. This beer should be rated yearly not as just itself. I don’t think they have used the same recipe twice and I highly doubt more than that. Always one of my favorites. This one is very well balanced without compromising complexity.

Gold pour, small white head. aroma is quite hoppy- pot, pine. Kind of funky. Great flavor though, spicy, grassy, grapefruit.

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
wish list beer, 2 months old. Tons of hops and tons of bitterness in this one, to the point they keep this beer from being better. the slightly sweet pineapple aroma and flavor are relagated to the background by the intense bitterness. decent, but i’d like to taste the beer juuust a tad more. 2nd/3rd time around - not really aging well, even though it doesn’t have much age on it. overrated in the high 90’s...probably done with this beer after the 4-pack. the weird bitterness just a bot off putting, and i like unapologetic bitter beers."

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
65 cl bottle. Pours a hazy gold with medium, creamy head. Really nice fresh hops in aroma: pine, resin, cream, citrus and some alcohol. Same taste notes + a gentle tone of fresh ground black peppers. Long finish with lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
