COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our limited release Imperial IPA is all about excess.

From the initial aroma, through the balanced finish and the lingering hop flavors that coat your palette, 10-10-10 is truly fertilizer for the hop lover’s soul!

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2010
A clear golden amber IPA with a thin white head. Another meaty and floral hops aroma, with some nice muskey notes, almost sexual. In mouth, an intense malt with nicely balanced floral hops, oily resins, quite nice and classic, warming alcohol, just right. On tap at Cigar City, May 22 2010.

hopscotch (9153) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Draft... Mildly hazed, light amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy – yet fat-bubbled – white head. Fantastic retention. The aromatics are heavy with peppery hops, grapefruit, peach, pine and resin. Full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is nothing but hop and alcohol bitterness and astringency. Assertive, aggressive and nearly offensive. Where’s the malt? Finishes liquor-like, harsh and bone dry.

GT2 (8427) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
On tap at Kickbacks. Pours a clear light amber with a decent white head. Okay retention and little to no lace. Aroma on this is very funky- almost like unblended lambic (I shit you not). There are some geuze notes in here of horse, sour fruits. Taste is just full on hop bitterness, wheat, herbal medicines, some sickly sweet malt. And then background geuze notes. Maybe an infection in this batch? Could be the beginnings of something very good- an IPA lambic (!!).

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2010
On tap on cask at the ‘010 FL Brewer’s Ball. Pours up copper with slight haze and off white head. The aroma is pretty robust with hop spiciness, some sweet malts, floral, a touch of soap and hop resin. The taste is sweet malts moving to pine hop resin, hop spiciness, a touch of grapefruit and staying hop resiny into the finish. It has lingering hops resin supported by echoes of malty sweetness heading deep into the after taste. Full of flavor. Nice!

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
draft. pours amber, tan head. aroma of caramel, strong citrus, grapefruit nose. flavors, lots of citrus goodness, boozy mouthfeel, nice bitter finish with notes of caramel malts. beer got a lot nicer as it warmed up, allowed for the warming abv to be present, and mesh with the hop profile and the malt balance. Tasty.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a hazy amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and caramel with a thick sappy pine hop note. Flavor starts with more bitter pine has some sappiness and a bit of caramel in the finish to balance the bitterness.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2010
Very nice ipa. Pours a copper and honey shaded body with a mild white head. Citrus and tangerines give way to a green grassy hop tone, a mild tea note. A bit brash with a strong hop oily finish, very nice.

On draft at the Hunahpu release. Pours an orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is a citrus burst with lots of orange, grapefruit, apricot, peach, and malt. Flavor is similar with well-hidden alcohol and lots of citrus. Medium-bodied and nice outside drinking beer. Dangerously drinkable at 10% ABV.
