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

Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours deep golden with thick two-finger head that dissipates rapidly. Good lacing. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, grass and a slight whiff of soap. Sweet malt hits the palate first, followed by earthy, citrusy hops. Soapy and astringent finish (and aftertaste). Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, a decent imperial IPA, balanced and well crafted but the astringent finish and soapy aftertaste diminish its drinkability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scarletfire65 (1347) - 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.

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Pours a orange copper with a moderate white head and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma has pine and some tropical fruits. The pine is more intense in the flavor with a light malt backbone and light notes of tropical fruit. Thin/medium body. Sticky texture. Intense dry bitter finish.

IndianaRed (3983) - 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.

A superb beer. Perfect balance with a bit - but not too much - mango and a bit citrus for good measure.

swesson (384) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
On tap at Hot Shots in Pismo Beach. Poured a medium gold and made a beautiful white head. Aroma is of pine and caramel. Tastes of grapefruit and pine resin and a mouthful of hops. A tremendous fresh hop bite that just makes this beer special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
