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.

Diabobale (429) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 2, 2016
Dal colore dorato abbastanza opalescente con un cappello di schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente, questa imperial ipa presenta degli ottimi sentori agrumati e fruttati al naso (pompelmo, arancia, mandarino e frutta gialla matura). E’ troppo carbonata e con un corpo nella media e al palato predominano di nuovo i sentori citrici, con un bell’amaro resinoso sul finale. Sorso secco e bocca molto asciutta.

superspak (4229) - Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; best before 3/14/2016, listed at 8.2% on the bottle. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Nice moderate dryness as well from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is gret. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

SDalkoholic (2314) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle from SBL: Poured a hazy and dusty off colored yellow liquid and was accompanied with a frothy foam cap head that leaves behind sticky lacing. Aroma smells sweet with caramelized malts while a faint nose of hops bring about the smell of citrus fruit and onion. The flavor is bitter with hops that taste like eating a orange peel and a sweet onion which makes my mouth pucker in sensory to the strong flavoring. Beer taste boozy as if it has been spiked with vodka or silver tequila. Solid beer that delivers and was actually an affordable four-pack that delivered on the ABV.

Cybercat (4637) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Pours clear golden with a thin eggshell head, but the latter is an artifact of the pour. Aroma has a hoppy note, not much else. Hops really come out in the flavor, along with citrus and subtle malty tones. Mouthfeel presents firm body and strong fizz. Starts weak, finishes strong - and has a punch.

SinH4 (2080) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2015
Hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is tropical, pine needles, grapefruit, some caramel. Taste is heavy, juicy, similar to the aroma. Quite an extreme unbalanced bitterness. Smooth carbonartion. Alright but not top.
