COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our special 10th anniversary beer is the biggest IPA we have had the nerve to make. Almost all Pale malt, with less than one percent each of Carastan and Wheat makes a beer quite pale for its size at 19 plato OG. We added Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops just about every place and every way we could think of - giving it lots of hop flavor and aroma and enough bitterness to compliment the telltale sweetness of the malt. One patron says "It makes you smile so your mouth's big enough for the beer". 6.25% alcohol by weight 7.8% by volume. This beer is also known as the Ten Year Imperial IPA.

Ungstrup (35019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is very powerfully sweet with lots of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of both caramel and hops, and a very thick body.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with a tiny head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Medium body with some rather sweet caramel notes and then some extremely fruity, pleasant citrus notes. Very American - very lovely. 130806

mcberko (15011) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
On tap at Bottleworks, split with Matts_Property, pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of piney / resinous hops, caramel and tropical fruits. Flavour is very fruity - mango and peach, with a piney hop blast and a perfect malt balance. Superb.

argo0 (13439) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Hazy golden body with off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, floral, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, floral, big malt underbelly. Alcohol noticeable, especially in the finish. Medium-full body, some stickiness. Nicely done I2PA -- maintained balance with big malts underneath the big hops.

3fourths (9211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Sampled @ brewery. Just a little murky orange haze. Big scorching bitterness, syrupy orange and sugar... strong alcohol burn, biting hops, but, thankfully, not too bad. Finish is dry and sticky, big hops everywhere, but unbalanced and still disorganized, though not to the extent of some IIPAs. Nose is minerally and musty hops.

AmEricanbrew (6754) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Cloudy amber with a thin head. Mild smell of piney hops and caramel. Full bodied and smooth. decent taste is first a sweetbread maltiness then a mostly bitter alcohol taste to finish. Their Bagwhan ipa is much better than this. 06/08/2007

Bottle. Light hazy orange colour with a white head. Caramel malty, light citric, hoppy aroma and taste, sweet. Medium to full body with a light sweet, light alcoholic finish.

The best beer on tap when I was there. The initial hop flavor is quite tasty, with the strength only coming through at the end. Pretty good stuff.
