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.

12oz can courtesy of Brian. Dull orange-brown with a lacy off-white head. Peach apricot aroma, some previous rater nailed it in that regard. Mellow and earthy, with some lasting sugary sweetness and strawy hops. Drinkable, quite mild for the style. Not quite a double IPA for sure. Still a pretty enjoyable offering, maybe a little overpriced.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Can shared at May Ale Alpharetta. Pours orange/brown with a light tan head. The aroma has notes of orange, earth and grass with some sweet malts. The taste is medium bitter with some sweetness and a decent citrus burst. Pretty tasty.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Murky peach with a wispy tan head and patchy lacing. Aroma of citrus, mango, pine and caramel. Taste of citrus, pine, caramel, a hint of garlic and some caramel. Aggressively hopped with high bitterness.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Draft. Hazy golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of floral pine. Taste is not over the top, but smooth and balanced pine. Nice.

weihenweizen (1622) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Refrigerated can from JoePessie. Pours deep copper with nice off-white head. Some lacing, medium body, resinous texture, medium carbonation and pine aroma. Taste is citrus, lots of pine, and bitter hop finish. Not balanced, too much pine, won’t be seeking out.

Sammy (8397) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
Very good drinking DIPA, with smooth understated carbonation, much citrus flavour. Golden colour. Hops like a 1.5 ipa than a dipa. The citrus is in the nose.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2012
Can from Pawola22 - thanks, dude! Sort of an oily, glassy dark orange pour, with less than impressive carbonation. Medium head, not too much lacing. Nose is sharp and grassy, with a dose of sweet booziness late. Taste is a bit hot and heavy on the faded malts, with thin sweetness an echo of once-fresh hops.

emeinz (220) - Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2012
Can courtesy of joepeesie. Citrus notes with a hint of pine. Golden Orange pour with moderate off white head. Long bitter finish. Not bad, but not my favorite.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
12oz can from emelius. 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.
