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.

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.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 1, 2013
Can. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of citric and piney hops, grassy hints and a bit of malt. Flavor has some sweet malt, caramelly and a bit biscuity, piney and resinous hops and a bitter and slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied, a bit heavy. Quite alright. Also, I like the drawing on the can.

Nice foamy head over hazy honey-color body. Aroma of piney, flowery and citrusy hops, and heavy malt. Taste of firm bitterness increasing in mid palate. Some lemon notes, good balance towards the bitter side, long bitter finish but not nearly as bitter as I would have expected for the style.

12oz can-Dark amber, slight haze, head disappeared quickly after pouring it into a glass. Aroma had some sweet malt with mild hop. Very strong butterscotch flavor thoughout and I didn’t get a big hop burst as I was expecting.

Had it on tap at Loafers in Chicago, poured a nice hazy amber hue with a light head and no lacing, and a pleasant hop aroma. The taste is a smooth bitter hop caramel flavor.

Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured a cloudy amber with a copper hue and white head that disapated quickly. Nice hop aroma with a bold hop taste and a bitter finish.

Malty, plenty of hops, yet it severely lacks refinement. Ends with some bite. Disappointing.
