Very popular. A complex hopping method where each hop addition is double the previous amount. More hops in the hopback and then two dry-hop sessions. The second dry-hop session is with whole hops and oak chips. 1.093 OG 10.75%ABV

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2005
On tap at Liars Club: Beer pours golden amber shot with orange and a moderate off white head. Aroma is of strong hoppy goodness, reminiscent of a pine forest after it rains. The flavor is industrial strength hop juice. Very juicy, fresh fruit, grapefruit, and orange juice. A shocking hop experience even for a dedicated hopophile like myself. Wonderful juicy mouthfeel. Lovely hop juice. Give me more please!!!!!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Sampled at Falling rock during GABF (Me so Hoppy). Foamy medium head, great carbonation in this copper colored brew. As you would expect, a great hoppy aroma. Fresh leaves, spicy and grapefruit. Light sweetness. Big hoppy taste! A bit soapy at the beginning and the end but in-between there is spruce and pine as well as some orangish hops. Malt is adequate to hold it up but not quite enough to really balance everything out. Bitter finish. Body was medium, a bit soapy. A little disappointed with this one but still very good.

On tap at the Liars Club on 7/30/05: Very clear pale copper bronze with a thin, lightly-lacing white head. Aroma is very fresh, hoppy and grassy with lots of sweet caramel maltiness. Body starts with a nice sticky sweetness turning more herbal and grassy toward the bittersweet finish. A different and unique beer that uses a different kind of hop than I am used to in imperial IPAs.

Strong, thick, caramel malts supporting earthy, resinous, pine, orange, perfumey, floral hops in the nose. Hazy, golden-copper coloured body with pillowy, fine-bubbled, white head that recedes to lasting cover with some lace. Green, woody, fresh, orange hops over thick caramel malts. Very dry and fully attenuated body. Bottle sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Tap @ Toronado. A slightly hazed golden amber color with a white head. Very smooth while still packing a huge bitter hop punch. Pine and citrus (grapefruit) with some sweet malts.

the title of most dangerous beer suits exponential just right. the alcohol taste is hidden in the hops and orange, pine and honey tastes that permiate the entire pint. Delicious beer with a smooth delicious taste and look.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Clearish straw yellow, huge fluffy sticky, rocky head leaves an impression on the glass and is truly spectacular. Fluffy nose, yeasty and minty, highly aromatic and spicy hops. Baby powder feel through the most original ingredient blending, sweet, resinous and cedary, which is an element I truly dig in IPAs. Very perfumey. The taste is not quite as impressive. Were facing chewy hops that are well-flavored and still cedary/flowery, but more dominant, sappy and like an hopstick rather than a poem. Medium-full bodied, soft to moderate expanding carbonation. Possibly my favorite I2PA. Props to cquiroga once again!

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Very appealing aroma of cedar and grapefruit. Very good flavor of grapefruit, sap and yeast. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture. Excellent !

The Lure:
A lump of wood still oozes some perfumy sap. Grapefruit orchards scent the air, as does Grandpas secret flask.

The Festivities:
Well-attenuated, the grapefruit and dry hop bitterness arent much more dangerous than their Pure Hoppiness. Pillow-y smoothness, fragile and very drinkable body, dry in the end for better quaffing. That wood is beautifully essential, yet not exponential.

A painted forest still inspires over the mantle.
