COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Überhoppy Imperial IPA: Hops, hops glorious hops! There is no mistaking what this beer is; soft and delicate it is not. Überhoppy is meant to completely overwhelm you with resinous, floral, citrus and herbal hops barely balanced by a huge amount of malt that keeps the Lupulin onslaught from resulting in complete palate destruction. If you do not like hops, Überhoppy is NOT the beer for you, do us all a favor and either give this beer to someone with the intestinal fortitude to appreciate it or put it down and walk away. Überhoppy is brewed with 10 different hop varieties and a complete and utter disregard for common logic or sanity. Please consume this beer as soon as possible to ensure maximum hop freshness. Approximately 9.5% ABV.

Liquid Sweetness! This double IPA was a tad on the sweet side. It had the bouquet of Port’s HOP-15, but but not the crisp hoppy flavor. A little on the sweet side for my liking. Not bad, but not the best DIPA

( 22oz bomber thanks to Bman1113vr) Pours a pale yellow with no head. Nose is grapefruit. Taste is pretty bitter, nice oily body and only lightly sweet. Not sure on the hype surrounding this one. Didn’t feel it is as well balanced as other top examples in the style.

Strong nice aroma, with something a little unpleasant I can’t quite put a finger on. Start is great, but the finish is a little off. It’s a good beer, but in my opinion not up to the hype.

From bottle, courtesy of dpjuart. Had a red licorice sweetness to the nose, and some odd aroma that I can’t describe. Malty, mild rubber. Orange amber with light haze, with off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Big alcohol warming. Syrupy malt sweetness and ton of huge hop bittering. Big bitter after.

22oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. No freshness info. Pours a clear, deep reddish orange with almost no foam or carbonation and very little lacing. Nose is quite rich with malt, more roaster than sweet. Hops take a back seat here, barely showing at all. Mouthfeel is syrupy and heavy with no carbonation, almost like a barley wine style. Rich, caramel malt with a good amount of resiny texture on the finish, enough to cut the heaviness of the malt and remind you that this is classified as a DIPA. Hops are quite citrus-y but don’t show well enough to make up for the over-abundance of malt. I am really not feeling this one. It has almost nothing I look for in a DIPA.
