COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. Weve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge hop bite. Once youve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

superspak (5003) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/4/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold/light amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon, orange zest, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is an incredible DIPA! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

scarletfire65 (1371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Draft at Kaseys Tavern in Chicago. This is a huge, sticky, piney West Coast IPA. This is how they made them about 5 years ago. Bold and bitter. Notes of apricot, pineapple, spruce, resin, with an abrasive, dry hopped, no holds barred finish. Beautiful. Its how I remember IPAs.

IndianaRed (4024) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 27, 2016
On Tap at Growler Guys, Meridian Slightly hazy dull light amber with a thin fine white head. Light pale malts for a big IPA, clean and well attenuated. The hop flavors are woody grassy and piney. A little of the bitter grapefruit pith. Harsh and bitter. Not my favorite type of hop flavors.
