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.

Itís a DIPA in a can? This looks fun. Thereís a whole lot of business in this dark red, bubbling concoction. The earthiness was big and there was a little of that over-the-top, hopped, bitter pine-sol thing going on. Itís medium bodied and filling. Hop Slayer is both drinkable and gut busting - youíll need an appetite to finish it off.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Can courtesy of Anthony at a tasting at Paulís. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Big citrus and dank resin on the nose, especially on a whiff right off the can. Soft musk and a touch of citrus. Bright citrus, musk, a lot of sticky malt. Chewy malt, citrus and dank resinous hops leading into a big citrous bite on the end.

Can I brought to Paulís tasting (thanks JoePeesie!). Clear dark golden pour. Nice citrus notes in the nose, notes of oranges and spruce. No hop sting but plenty of hops presence (pine and citrus). Slight cheese in the finish. Solid.

Tasty, little bit of bitterness but would never guess 8abv. This could be a dangerous one.

nuplastikk (5268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2012
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 (2129) - 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.

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.
