COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An intense Double IPA brewed for the "hopheads" of the world. This robust ale is so full of malt and hops that you can almost chew on it. Served in a snifter to bring out all of the nuances of malt, hop, and alcohol.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 Hazy oragish brown with a two finger head creamy and lacing.Good hop aroma pine spice some floral and fruit with malt.Taste is smooth malty creamy,orange like sweetness with a bittering finish that is not all that bitter but enough to finish it off with a lingering bitterness and hop presence,hop flavor is somewhat orangish pine, resiony/grassy-mildly with a bit of that roasted malt kind of bitterness.Solid very good well made double ipa,delicious and kind of refreshing with the mellow citrusness of the hops.One of the best or the best local ipa ive had.

Pours cloudy with a white head. A sweetness that hit me right off the bat and that was so unexpected! Loved this double IPA. Had never heard of this brewery and will visit soon!

wxman (1414) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Pours a hazy orange/amber color with a pretty big off white head. Lots of rising bubbles. Aroma is grapefruity due to the dry hopping. Taste is pretty hoppy, dominates the flavor a bit much. Theres also a caramely sweet roasted malt character along with a butteriness.

crossovert (7215) - Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 12 oz can. It is a middle of the road double ipa. It doesn’t rape you with hops but it also doesn’t excite you with malt. But it still isn’t too bad.

Pours a great looming orange opaque with a perfect head. Aroma is great, light and soft. Flavor is sour, like a grapefruit. A little strong, but tasty. I appreciate the beer in this style not being so heavy with the malted hops.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 15, 2011
can-pours turbid orange with a small fizzy white head. nose is candy hops, sugar, lite oxidization, floral, but not very puncy in terms of freshness. some woody notes come out as well. flavors are very citric/sweet with not much bitterness at all. alcohol is well hidden i must say. mid palate, there is a decent woody note followed by a lite resin. finish is short but mostly citric, with little bitterness. kind of a wierd IIPA. I wonder if its different on tap? dunno. regardless, average at best.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pours hazy amber orange with a rocky tan head. The aroma has lots of caramel malts along with tropical fruit and floral hoppy traits. Medium / full body that’s on the slick side with semi-soft carb. Starts with sweet caramel malt and some syrup traits, cotton candy and hoppiness like the aroma. The finish continues the sweetness and there is a lingering hoppiness. Okay IIPA, but a bit sweet for my tastes.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2011
12 oz can. Pours a deep golden orange with a small white head. Aroma has some fruitiness from the hops, mostly citrusy with some hop resin notes and some sweet caramel notes as well. Flavor has some muddled character, overly sweet especially in the finish, almost candyish with some of the piney hops coming through, though providing very little bitterness. Medium almost light medium body which is weak for the style and a soft carbonation. Definitely not up to par for the style but not wholly unpleasant.

From a 4 pack. A bit $ for a local beer in a can. $9. Don’t know what it looked like since it was drained out of said can. Brought to a party where a couple other guys also enjoyed. Medium pin resin/hops all around. Went down easy. Maybe the malt likka of IIPA’s. Solid enough , just drop the damn price.
