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.

Cloudy golden color with a foamy white head. The aroma is a little hoppy with a hint of pine. The body is malty and the flavor is relatively sweet. The flavor has hints of citrus and hops.

Pours a clean orange with a big white fizzy head. Nose and taste a a well balanced blend of piney, earthy, floral hops. Soild malt backbone very easy drinking for the style.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Poured out of can into a sniffer. Aroma: Crisp, clean citrus. Much more of a mild hoppy smell than I expected. Appearance: Small head when poured into a very clean glass. Golden in color with light lacing left behind. Taste: Medium level of hops that are well pronounced after you take a drink. Hops start with floral and citrus but finish with resin and earth tones. Almost no alcohol bite. Palate: Very smooth no bite to the alcohol, slightly viscous (in a good way). Overall: Very nice beer with a clean crisp taste. Nice to drink and great smell to boot! It stands up to Hopslam and other DIPA’s I have had! Great job Wild Onion!

12 oz can from Blue Dog Lansdale. Poured a super muddy amber brown body under a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is pretty solid with lots of citrus hops, grapefruit rinds, troical fruits, mangos, bread crusts. The body is solid with stronger carbonation and a lingering bitter bite over a fuller mouthfeel, nice. Flavor of older oranges, light citrus rinds, bread, crusts and cereal. Good stuff.

MadIndian (2350) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
A mild IPA. Reminded me of Dog fish 60 min. On draft at Dog and Bull. Some nice floral, caramel malt and citrus notes. A tad thin in the body, but not a bad brew. Very easy to drink.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Can from Tokyo Pub. Pours hazy dark orange with white head. Aromas of citrusy hops and caramel malts. Flavor of citrus, some hop bitterness, light spice, and caramel malts. Hops some hop bitterness, but lacks flavor and a malt bomb. Not really worth revisiting.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Medium sized off white head with fair retention and nice lacing. Gentle nose is spicey, citrusy with some pencil shavings. Medium bodied, lil oily, somewhat spritzy carbonation, hint metallic. Fairly dry malts with some melony notes, citrus and cedar notes, maybe some slight off notes, bandaid, phenols, something growing but still young, hmph. Dry finish with a not big enough bite. Can from ughsmash. Thanks man!

Voodoo (294) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap......very oily in an unpleasant way, off balance finishing with loads of citrus taste. A beer which has too much of a lot of great ingredients but no direction. It has potential but needs refinement.

Hoppy aroma. Slight citrus flavor with a bit of spice leading to a bitter and hoppy finish. Not bad from a can.
