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.

amber pour with a white head. Aroma of grass, floral hop notes, and a bit of tropical fruit. Resiny, bitter, a touch astringent. Decent.

Indra (2616) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz. can. Aroma of sweet, floral and fruity hop, with notes of caramel, sugary frosting, pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Cloudy medium orange-amber color, with a bit of the sediment poured, and a very fine, uneven head. Flavor profile is somewhat sweet and malty to start, more caramel noted as well as a certain sweet, bready aspect, turning a bit more fruity and citric towards midpoint, and finishing with a moderate dose of resinous hop bitterness and flavor. Not able to detect the alcohol here. Very smooth and low in carbonation, even a bit watery for the style, body is medium. I wasnít too impressed with this but would try it again if I had the opportunity to sample it super-fresh on draft.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at Pony. Pours an amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is pretty muted overall, maybe some grapefruit and pine resin. Mouthfeel is medium to full with notes of sweet hop syrup, resin, lots of fruity malts - seems to be unbalanced for the most part.

Draught fro. habitat. Clear amber pour. Fruity citrus nose. Small white head. Grapwfruit more than resin. Purdy good.

UDBeernut (1712) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Can pours amber with a white head that reduces to a lacing cap that coats my sn snifter. Nose or pine, grapefruit, and that cat piss. Taste is under balanced for the style imo. There is some bitterness, but malt swwetness starts and is eventually washed over by pine, flowers, and wet onion (no, this is not a pun or some jerked off joke). Body is solid.

12oz can. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of citrusy, resiny, and floral hops with a good amount of caramel and pale malts. Flavor about the same with a good hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Location: Draft at 4th Ave Pub, 3/16/13

Aroma: This one has a pretty decent hop aroma, with some resin, citrus, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: This one pours a clearish golden-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: Tastes as expected, mid-plus bitter, not the juiciest or cleanest hop profile, but a solid one
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty solid but not amazing mouthfeel, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought this was a solid beer, but I didnít think this was a great example of the style. It certainly isnít a bad beer, but in this style itís kind of middling, and probably a little closer to the bottom than the top.

A hoppy double ipa that is really smooth. Pours light yellow. Tastes great for coming out of a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a hazy orange/amber color with a white head. The aroma was grapefruity, most likely because of the dry hopping. The taste was pretty hoppy, which dominates the flavor a little bit. Tasty.
