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.

Great floral smell with a cloudy appearance. Upfront flavor is somewhat harsh. Tart and stinging. Very strange character. Not a bad dipa but not repeatable.

12oz can-thin lt tan-hazy dk amber. A-resin/herbal, med malt-cereal. T-initially not good, after being in the pint glass a bit: herbal/floral/orange hops, med malt-cereal/caramel. Enjoyable but not my style of hops.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Very cloudy amber pour. The aroma is quite hoppy and resinous but also has a lot of malt flavour/character as well. A little bit of fruitiness and some lingering resinousness as well. There is a bit of citrus and some fruit flavour as well. A touch of lingering sweetness on the back. It’s okay - but it’s not quite punchy enough.

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Pours deep amber orange. Nose is fruity cereal and booze. This didn’t taste true to style for me.....borderline barlywine. Not as much hop coming through as I anticipated....fruit, malt, and alcohol. Chewy. So-so overall.

PhilJackson80 (328) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 18, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Can. The beer pours to a cloudy deep copper color with a medium white head. The aroma had resin, caramel malt & a slight floral scent to it. The taste has a medium body an almost sweet finish. Overall an average DIPA for me.

mansquito (3449) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is piny hops and resin hops, with a substantial malt backbone. Taste is rather bitter and hoppy, but with a big chewy malt backbone. A relatively standard DIPA, but pretty good.

Crackbebe (2) - - SEP 27, 2013 does not count
Dense body, underattenuated or full of unfermentables. Good beer but not to style. The hops are there but nothing stands out. Almost a highly hopped, low alcohol barleywine.

A 12 oz pour. I liked the smooth hope bite. I drank from the can and was pleasantly suprised. Very enjoyable!
