COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and dangerously drinkable, this double IPA is just what the bitter drinker needs in his life. You’re not looking for anything malty. You’re not looking for the aromatic, floral character of hops. When you’re looking for IBUs, ask for it by name.

22oz bottle I picked up at Superstar Beverage. Pours a hazy orange with some foamy, slightly off white head. Nose has an old school take, lots of C hops, lemon, grapefruit, lots of sticky pine, some sticky honey lurking. Flavor follows right along, lots of pine, lots of lemon, some grapefruit, some soap, a little candy. Full bodied, bitter finish. Old school DIPA.

This beer is absolutely delicious! It has a burnt butterscotch aroma that is fantastic. No hoppy smell at all. It tastes great without the typical real hoppy IPA grapefruity flavor. It's a rich full bodied dark flavor. I love it!

Multiple samples at the NY Winter Beerfest. Poured a hazed orange/amber with an average foamy light beige head. Aroma of marmalade topped bread, rotting oranges, resiny hops. Medium to fuller body, syrupy, lighter carbonation with a lingering aftertaste. Aroma is actually a bit better then the aroma, rotting citrus, lots of grapefruit rind, breads, dough. Solid beer.

Growler filled at Ronkonkoma Beverage. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of resinous pine, grapefruit and orange along with some caramel. The flavor begins with malt and caramel and is followed by a solid dose of resinous pine along with some grapefruit and orange. I love the combination of pine and caramel, and this beer nails it. The mild sweetness endures through the hops, supported by the resinous pine. Excellent DIPA.
