An Our mission for this Imperial or Double India Pale Ale is to overload the beer with hops for an intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma while still being balanced by a big malt profile, resulting in a hoppy beer with more dimension. This beer is light copper in color with some hop haze from overloading with dry hops as well. World Beer Championships Award: Bronze Medal 2011

12oz can from Weilands. Clear copper pour with light tan head and foamy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, herbal, grass. Tastes are fairly malty up front then spruce, sugary dough, floral, grass, spices, pine wood, citrus. Oily resiny hops on the medium palate. Fairly bitter in the finish, but the sweet malt wins out overall. Decent dipa sippa.

A very big ipa. It was to much malt. It did balance out but to bug on the malt profile. Very cloying. Had a weird bitter taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12iz can shared. Poured a medium copper color with off white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is mslts DNS lots of citrus hops followed by pine. The flavor is an excessive malt base for some reason. Nice hops flavor of citrus and pine. Overall I undestsnd the low score for style but it has a good flavor to it.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2015
12 oz. can. This is not good. Pours a golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, resin, and pine, with some malt presence. Flavor is hops and chunky malt flavor. Sticky mouthfeel, kind of gross after one can. This is a below average double IPA.

Clear amber with a foamy light beige head. Deep sticky earthy hop resin on the nose with a touch of lemon and malt sweetness. Deep yet rich flavor with lots of grapefruit and earthy pine resin and a deep resounding caramalt malt backbone. Its nuanced but sternly bitter with lots of semisweet grapefruit rind. A bit much on that front but still very tasty.

12 oz can poured. This thing exploded when I opened it for a reason that is still under investigation. Huge foamy head for days. There are two things that never get old to me, and that would be hoppy beers, and beers that have super clever pun names. 2 in 1! I love that. Though Mitch Hedberg once said, two in one makes no sense, because it would be overflowing, and the bottle would be all sticky and shit. This may explain why the can exploded with foam. Ah, it all makes sense now. Now on to the less important details. Beer pours a dark copper color. Super pine aroma. Flavor has a super sweet caramely side to it, which I wouldnt always enjoy, but this one makes it work. High Abv, but drinks nice. Really good for cracking after 12 hours of work. Piney hops flavor will stick around forever. Not your ordinary in the style. The word overload in the name is a good word to describe this if you are only using one word. Now, Im going to continue enjoying this beer, and listen to some Mitch. Overall, its pretty good.

Pours clear honey color with gigantic head that keeps lasting. Nose is grass, fruit, grapefruit. Body is oily, with grass, slightly bitter, good amount of caramel sweetness. Good, but balance just doesnt seem to be there, some metallic harshness.

Pour out of 12 oz can, hazy dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of veggie, rotten fruits, some slight orange peel and caramel, jammy notes into a bit of pine, slight spice. Taste is rotten fruits, veggie, butter, some caramel, toffee into a bit of orange, slight pine and resinous notes into a bit of yeast, finishing buttery. Yikes.

12 oz can. Pours clear copper amber with a medium frothy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - sweet caramel malt with some alcoholic hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts with a pretty big piney resiny hop finish and quite a bit of alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent DIPA. I liked this much better on tap. It was very hazy with more fruit and less alcohol. This tastes a bit like Arrogant Bastard.
