COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who doesnt 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 dont need tiny arms and a huge head to enjoy this mammoth IPA!

Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small head that collects to a nice ring. Aroma is juicy and fruity. Fresh squeezed oranges and grapefruit, light pine, light pineapple, and light caramel. Taste sugary sweet and very juicy. Only a light bitterness. Grapefruit juice, orange peel, pineapple, and light lemon. Very dry finish with some tartness too

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, theres some huge chunks in there. I mean, the size of sunflower kernels. Theyre resting on the bottom of the glass, but theyre releasing some sort of oil, you can see it. Ordinarily, Id 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 its okay. Its bigger, heavier and more dank than I expected. I might or might not buy it again. I might or might not recommend it. Its 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

omhper (24624) - Tyres, 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 (1412) - 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.

dnstone (3016) - 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

Pours a cloudy golden with a sudsy, tall, white head. Pungent nose. Pine, orange and sweet malt. Onion, pine, citrus, sweet malt. Flavor lingers on the sides of my tongue after the finish. Refreshing. Wet but gets astringent. I enjoy this beer.

Hazy golden under a large fluffy white head. Big leafy dank and slight weedy nose. Crisp fluffy body with leafy dank hops, floral resins, weedy flavors and a medium bitterness. Interesting and marijuana-ish.

Draft at Shepherd - Pours a very cloudy orange, frothy white head. Lovely aroma, tropical notes all over, barnyard and some spice. Full and creamy on the tongue with silky sweet tropical flavors, bitter biscuit, some resin a little more funk and a slightly bitter finish. Good stuff!
