COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a super hazy copper color. Thick white head. Smells like a mixture of a damp basement and malt. The most pronounced the thing in the flavor is the alcohol. Almost a sour bitterness.

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a medium foamy head. Aroma of bitter citrus, pine, grass, floral, and earth. Taste was very bitter, grapefruit, pine, and floral notes. A little malt sweetness in the background, but the bitter hops dominate this beer mostly. Medium body, nicely carbed, dry finish. Solid double IPA.

jeremyh70 (1098) - Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Hazy orange copper color, with a thin layer of sticky foam. Aroma was very grassy, more of an herbal bittering hop nose than any pine or citrus. Flavor was earthy with an aspirin bitterness. Some pale malts in the aftertaste, but steamrolled by the hop content. Finishes dry with a lingering bitter herbal aftertaste. It had a good amount of carbonation and body.

Destihl Hoperation Overload has an extremely thick and lively cream colored head, a fairly opaque gold-orange appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is predominately of hop resin with a white bread crust background. Taste is also strong on hop oil and pronounced bitterness, but the sweetness from the malts does balance it out. Mouth-feel is heavy and slick, and Destihl Hoperation Overload finishes puckering, not the least bit alcohilic, and nicely drinkable. RJT

jahshuwuh (567) - USA - AUG 12, 2014
Medium copper color, half finger of cream colored head. Smell is an phenolic caramel, almost reminiscent of a barley wine, pine, vanilla, slight soured fruit, some tropical fruit. Taste is a caramel malt sweetness with some earthy hops that aren't overwhelming in bitterness, some citrus flavors, pine hop. Smooth finish with little bitterness, some cracker, bread. The malt sweetness almost over shadows the hops, which isn't typical for the style. It isn't a bad beer, but maybe not a great representation of the style, but an interesting take. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Looks ok, does not smell like an ipa, bad taste of Band-aids, rubbing alcohol, weird funky belgian ipa flavor. Maybe we got a bad keg in Seattle but this beer sucks ass

can - This brew pours up a thick, half inch, off-white head and has a strong grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor is full of hops bitterness and citrus with a big load of malt sweetness too. Its full bodied with a long, pleasantly bitter finish. Very well done. I see the malt is too heavy for some, but for me overloading both the malt and the hops works great here.
