COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with an abundance of hops. Once we started hopping this beer stopping was impossible. Emphasizing Amarillo, Horizon, Summit, and Glacier hops with support from 5 other American varieties. Hops were added in every conceivable part of the brewing process. Whole leaf in the mash, hop forwarded (lautered through whole cones), hop backed, first wort hopped, kettle hopped with pellets and extract, and dry hopped in the fermenter and brite tanks. No expense was spared to bring you HOPULENCE!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Wormtown has come very close to perfection with this now year-round DIPA. The aroma and flavor remind me a bit of Port’s High Tide IPA which I tend to hunt down every fall. This beer is monstrously bitter with notes of citrus dominating the hop profile. Very crisp and clean, there is no noticeable malt flavor and no harsh aftertaste. A hop bomb indeed, just the way I like it.

sulawang (984) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
4oz sampler @ VCBW 2016- Day 3. Creamy-micro smooth feel, very nice. Mellow hops, fruity toffee malt. Mango-apricot exhale, background resin. A very drinkable DIPA that isn’t too heavy or tiring on the palate.

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear golden blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out piney hops upfront, followed by crisp crackery malt. Flavour brings out lots of piney hop oils, hop resins, and dry biscuity malt. Loads of hop oils, with a lightly sweet finish. Really nice.

Draft - Sweet and malty orange notes. Clear gold with a nice white head. Syrupy and a bit of Woody bitterness. Very malty.

mathieuc (3172) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
(Mondial 2015) Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of caramel and dank hops. Taste is of caramel, fruity and moderately bitter. It is also a little boozy, sadly. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and the alcohol is a bit distracting and not hidden well-enough. Overall a fair DIPA (not sure when that bottle was opened so time might have been a factor here) but their other hoppy (and less alcoholic) offerings are better.

Baby growler into a taster. Pours a yellow oaker with yellow hay highlights. Frontal hop aroma, juicy, then bitter. orange, grass. Taste is phat juicy hops, full frontal dipa here, orange peel and hop aromatics are in full grace. Benevolent bitter and dry pleasantries engulf the plattte. Sensational dipa fresh from brewery.

22oz bottle, big thanks to AJ for sharing. Hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Ropes and bits of lace. Fantastic malt aroma on this guy, I really dig it.. Biscuity, honey, mild caramel, kinda cake-like. Good complex hop aroma too, pretty unique. Not overly assertive, bitter, or citrusy like many modern examples, this hop aroma is kind of melony, passionfruit, maybe a hint of tropical (mango/banana). I’m thinking that glacier is adding some unique layers to this, that’s a cool hop you don’t see too often.. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Super-smooth for a DIPA of this strength, very balanced. Medium to bigger body; lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. I have to respect the malt here, that was my first impression, and I respect doing a different DIPA than the thousands already out there. Really enjoyable DIPA to sip on or swig on. Looking forward to seeing what else these guys do.
