If you want a double IPA with bite, you’ve found your beer. The perfect blend of 6 hops come together making this double IPA a hop head’s dream. The entry is big enough to fit the Titanic in it, overloading your taste buds with flavor. Your taste buds can only recognize 99 IBUs, but we are bringing 154 to this beer. Why waste the 55 IBUs if you can’t recognize them? We say, “Why not?” Take a bite of the beer that bites you back!

Draft at Sanctuary. Poured a clear light orange color with a white head. Citrusy hop and biscuity malt in the nose. Simple but pleasant. Medium bodied and somewhat sweet with less bitterness than I had expected, possibly attenuated a bit by the sugars. Pine, citrus, and fresh biscuity malt flavors. Nice.

Yum, yum, yum, yummmmm! Served at a good temperature with a nice sized, foamy, frothy, cream colored head that lasts a while and plenty of lace. Color is slightly hazy, brown amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is hops, resin, malt. Flavor is very similar, massively hop bitter, yet somehow now so overdone as so many hop bombs are. This beer works very well. Body is spot on - the combination of fullness without the highpoints of conflicting acid and bitter. Finish is like flavor, average length, and very good. Solid effort.

Tap at Joe’s. Aroma is packed with resiny hops, pine sap, somewhat dank, bready malts, really somewhat subtle for what I was expecting. Pours golden, fairly hazy, white head with average retention, good lacing. Flavor is mostly pine and resin on the hops end of things, very bitter as expected but not overly astringent or puckering in the finish. Pronounced bready/grainy malt character. Medium body and carbonation. Nice brew, could use a bit of help in the flavor/aroma hops department, was hoping for a big floral/citrusy nose and more fresh hop flavor, but still a good effort.
