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.

Dirty and hazy amber, Nice aroma of resin hops but a little sharp, citrus undertone with a strong malt backbone. Moderate body and carbonation, little bit of initial sweetness but becomes bitter and grows more so. Leaves a nice blend of resin hops and malt. Good.

Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma has a nice hop influence- a little fruity. Taste is hop dominant- light fruit. 8% alc. is well hidden. Hops are not over powering. Nice lacing.

I got a bad 4 pack at a local grocery store not known for it’s craft beer. I need to listen to my buddies advice "don’t buy craft beer at a store that doesn’t turn lots of it over". OK, my bad, and wow was this bad. Not a HINT of IPA in this. Malty sweet, very very little bitterness. Blech. If I see this at a different, more reliable store, I’ll try it again, since I’m a fan of citrus and floral hops.

Draught at Drop Off, N.Y., June 1. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, citrus and tropical fruit. Big hoppy flavour, quite fruity, along with a bit of alcohol and a finish that is only slightly harsh. Medium bodied. I quite liked this.

12oz can poured into a goblet. Cloudy amber-orange with a small off white head. Piney hops aroma with some peach candy, onion, grass and cookies. Juicy hop flavor (though a bit stale) with sweet malts, caramel and canned fruit (apricots). Full body, highly bitter, soft carbonation and could be cool when fresh.

Pours a murky orange copper color with a head that fails to get to a finger but retains a collar and has good lacing. Aroma is citrusy with a good amount of caramel sweetness and a bit of pine. Taste is surprisingly malty sweet at first with caramel and and toasted malt, then the hops fight back with citrus and a fair amount of bitterness and a grassy note. Finishes slightly bitter but builds somewhat as you drink. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Finishes semi dry and a little sticky. I was surprised how malty this was for a double IPA. More balanced and less bitter than expected but not very complex. Not bad but nothing special.
