COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who doesn’t love a great IPA? The secret of this brew is that we used actual dinosaur bones.

Okay, that was a lie. But we did throw in enough hops to bury a Brontosaurus. Inspired by some of our favorite West Coast IPAs, the bold pine, citrus, peach, and tangerine hop flavors, along with a clean bitterness are balanced by a velvety malt backbone. This beautiful blend of flavor and drinkability showcases the truly unique experimental hop 05256 which we find to be delightfully juicy and dank. You don’t need tiny arms and a huge head to enjoy this mammoth IPA!

Cloudy orange with a white head. Powerful sweet malt over tangerine, pine, light citrus, and caramel. A bit of resin. Full bodied. Enjoyable.

For the ABV, this is a great IPA. You do get the dank even at 6 percent. Impressive. Full balance of all citrus hops. This beer doesn’t beat around the bush.

Bottle purchased at Specs. Prominent dank hop aroma, pours hazy golden yellow with good frothy head. In addition to dank hops there are also citrusy and piney hops in there too. Finishes crisp. Not the dankiest of dank beers so I find the name a little misleading. I also feel the moderate dankness ends up giving a slightly dirty flavor to the beer, which is why my overall rating probably doesn’t come out as high.

Pours a very cloudy, very golden color. Lots and lots of very thick white head. Huge, thick, rocky. Wow! Good lacing. Great retention, wow! Whoa nelly, there’s some huge chunks in there. I mean, the size of sunflower kernels. They’re resting on the bottom of the glass, but they’re releasing some sort of oil, you can see it. Ordinarily, I’d give a super high score, but those are some huge! chunks.

Aroma is dank, alcohol. Peach, tangerine. Grassy hops.

Taste is much of the same. Dank, very dank. Alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium full. Quite bitter, lots of resin. Alcohol. It could pass for a DIPA.

Overall it’s okay. It’s bigger, heavier and more dank than I expected. I might or might not buy it again. I might or might not recommend it. It’s not bad.

12 oz can. Thanks to Vastactiv and Timo A for this! Hazy orange golden color with a tiny white head. Fruity hops, dank, dryness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is sweet fruitiness, sugary sweetness, fruit juice and malt. Low carbonation. No bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and juicy fruity, pine, some faint malts, pineapple and mango sweetness. Flavor is sweet and juicy fruity with orange, mango and pineapple, resinous hoppy, dank, some malty bitterness. Okay.

omhper (24980) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2017
Keg at Ginger Man, Plano. Cloudy pale amber, mid sized head. Dank aroma with grapefruit, figs and pine. Mid sweet with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Dates, citrus and notes of rubber and black currant. Loaded with hops, but rather sterile and somewhat edgy. Resiny bitter finish. Come on guys, those Brachiosaur bones need also malt to remain buried.

ttoadee (1488) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Cloudy gold pour, small but compact white head. Nose is herbal and resiny. Bitter. Middle really opens up to a bouquet of citrus and soft peach pit, surrounded by a blanket of medium bodied malt. Finish is bitter and fruity. Nice.

VastActiv (6945) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2017 Can at hotel room n Greensboro. Enjoyed straight from the can. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, grape, hops and malts. Some vegetables in flavor. Not good.

dnstone (3386) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Lightly hazed golden color with a light sudsy white head. Lightly fruity hop aroma. Lightly fruity, juicy; great flavor but a bit thin in the end...still a great single IPA. Notes: can from the Whip In
