Molten is the most aggressive IPA in our little family, yet it somehow manages a great balance while still achieving full hop overdrive. This years offering is stronger than the last and features a more complex hop bill, with citrus notes dominating. Dry-hopped with enormous bagfuls of whole hop flowers, which provide added aroma and flavor without harsh bitterness. Watch out, this brew is deadly!

anders37 (23793) - Malm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2008
Draft at the taproom. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small longlasting white head. Has a malty hoppy bitter pine aroma with resiny hints and hints of grapefruit. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter piny resiny flavor with hints of grapefruit. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter piny finish with a long bitter hoppy resiny aftertaste with some hints of grapefruit. Lovely stuff.

Draught at The Beer Junction, Seattle
Blond color with creamy head. Manure aroma, earthy hops, initially; some yeasty dough and feet later. Smooth and lean mouthfeel, with light pleasant sweetness; drinkable malts, followed by resiny hops.
Good beer, but with some flaw.

Theydon_Bois (17647) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Keg at the taproom. Hood River, 24/05/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Nose carries hops, bitter orange, light fart, grapefruit. Taste comprises bitter hops, sugars, bitter grapefruit, light pine, caramel malt. Full bodied with fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Respectable enough DIPA but no world beater for this genre!

mcberko (15013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Bottleworks, pours a hazy golden with a medium beige head. Aroma of cat piss, moldy socks and skunky, herbal hops WTF? Flavour is thankfully quite a bit better, with citrus and piney hops, dank earthy notes, and dry, slightly sweet biscuity malts. Actually a gorgeous beer, despite the off-putting aroma. Highly enjoyable stuff.

Bottle from LetsPour.com. Pours very hazy golden amber with a slight white head. Aroma is fruit/citrus. Med + body. Flavor is mild stone fruit, caramel moving on to citrus. Lots of hop, but not harsh. Finishes towards dry and very hoppy.

Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits beer tasting on 06/14/2013: Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, hops and sweet malt. Medium to full body with flavors of resiny hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

jercraigs (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-01. Very lightly hazy orange body, creamy white head and great lace. Modest citrus aroma is quite pleasant, oranges, leafy touches, hints at cat pee - citra hops maybe? Flavour is similar, pleasant citrus, modest bitterness throughout, bitterness and citrus linger long into the finish and aftertaste. Alcohol is quite mild considering how strong it is. Smooth average palate. Exceptionally drinkable. On tap at Uber Tavern, Seattle

3fourths (9213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2012 8oz pour at Green Dragon in Portland is cloudy but bright and soft golden orange with a finely bubbled, creamy but short white head. Intense nose of citric acid, pineapple, lemons, lime, mango, oranges, everything. It smells acidic and intensely bitter, and to test this theory I drink this beer, and believe it or not its acidic and intensely bitter. Hugely pungent, creamy citrus hop cones. Big and bold but not stupidly corrosive and unpalatable. Very nice overall, a definite hop bomb.
