A monstrously big and hoppy Double IPA. The recipe for this beer was developed by Brewer Shane Cummings. F**kin’ A!

neongolden (644) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
(Bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 12 2014) Pours a hazy medium orange with a moderate foamy white head. Aroma of citrus peel, resiny, a bit of pine, some faint tropical fruit notes, caramel malt sweetness and a fair amount of grain, exposed by hop fade I think, On the palate, sweet and fairly fruity at first, grapefruit, orange peel, a little tropical, pine resin builds in the middle. Becomes reasonably bitter later on with fairly robust caramel/pale malt core giving way to resin and, again, a fair amount of grain. Hop bitterness moderately high toward the finish with a bit of alcohol heat and that grain lingering on the tongue. Medium bodied and slightly oily with average carb. This was still a pretty decent IPA even though the bottle was clearly not fresh. The exposed grain bothered me but it would have been much better with that covered and the stronger hop flavour that did it. Will happily rerate fresh cause I think this is a pretty good one.

Torrefacto (741) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2014
Cobrizo muy tupido con espuma marfil bastante uniforme. aromas de miel, azúcar moreno, melocotón y pińa. Cuerpo denso con inicio dulce y afrutado de melocotón y miel con un final de amargor amable, cítrico y seco, duradero y bien equilibrado.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Crept into the glass a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Nose was generous with the citrus/tropical fruits and piney hop. Sweet hoppy flavour with notes of caramel, resin and pineapple. Decent ABV smother and bitterness on point. Medium to fullish body. Would love to try a super fresh bottle. This was a very tasty DIPA and I’m feeling the star hopping connotations.

TheJvd (938) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014
Small sample from bottle at Camping Ratebeer ’14. Pours hazy yellow with a small to medium beige head. Aroma of yellow fruits, lots of hops, some maltiness and pine, quite nice. Taste is fruity with tropical fruits, hops, hay, some maltiness and an over medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice.

Koelschtrinker (11465) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Vollmundig hopfiger Antrunk und weiterer Verlauf, blumig und fruchtig. Im Mittelteil eher noch intensiver, der Hopfen drängt zudem die Bitterkeit ab. Hell würzig, intensiver, nicht nachlassender Hopfen. Geringe Süße, kaum schmeckbarer Alkohol. 12/13/11/13/11/12
