COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doug Hyndman’s latest and greatest hoppy war hammer of an IPA. Five types of hops, five pounds in the dry hop - there’s a theme here. Chinook, CTZ, Centennial, Galena and Amarillo join forces, devastating your palate with their bitter deliciousness. Pungent. Clean. Unforgiving. Wonderful!

Tap. Pours clear gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Light amber/orange pour with a mostly white head. Aroma is a nice citrus/resin bomb! Just enough malt to balance this out, but its all hops all the time!

cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2012

onceblind (10548) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Tap @ Brewery. Slightly hazy dark gold under a lush laceful foamy head. Aroma is strong of pine resin and grapefruit with a subtle toffee sweetness under it. Also smells just a bit "green". Taste is pretty resiny but not as bitter as I expected. Pretty floral/resinous/piny/citrusy taste with a bit of herbal bitterness, with just enough of a pale grain malty caramel tone to hold it up. Not bitter enough to scare your girlfriend away, but has a very hoppy taste. Like drinking non-bitter hop flowers.

3.8
arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Cascade dry-hopped firkin for firkin friday, pour was very hazy orange-yellow with thin white head, aroma brought big fruity and citrusy hops, hints of caramel and toffee and slight dank pine notes. Taste is a nice oily citrus, pine and caramel, hints of toffee and more citrus, finishing fairly bitter and dry. Really nicely done, the temp and firkin nature of it made the hop aromas really jump.
