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!

From a 12 oz. can. Pours a hazy copper with an off white head. Aroma of grass and pine. Flavors are moderate to heavy bitter hops. Fairly full bodied with lively carbonation.

Can. Grapefruit hop aroma with notes of floral and tropical fruit hops with bit of toasted malt. Pours clear golden colored with about one finger of off white head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with tropical fruit and grapefruit hop citrus as well as a bit of toasted malt. Finishes dry with bitter floral hop flavors that coats the palate. Pretty good IPA.

Can - pours a mostly clear golden yellow with a tinge of orange and a med soapy off white head. Mostly citrus aroma with orange zest, grapefruit and mild malty sweetness. Lighter body than I expected makes it somewhat thin. Bitter without a substantial hop bouquet. Minimal malt contribution. Meh

12 oz. can. 6.5% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with light lacing, over a mildly hazy light amber (SRM 7) body.......nose is heavy hops, with grapefruit, light pine, mild toasted malts with light biscuit, balance to the hops.......taste is lightly sweet with floral honey notes, mild cereal from the malts, pine, grapefruit, tangerine tones from the hops, finishing with heavy, lingering bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with mild acid. This is a very hop dominated beer in aroma, flavor and big bitterness. The malt backbone is minimally present as is frequently found in newer style IPAs. The result is a rather too simple a beer. A rework of the malts, with more caramel/crystal notes, would improve both the malt contribution and the body which is much too light for the style. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Can in Denver on a recent trip to Colorado. Nothing to really write home about. Drinkable, but ok.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 Can sample. Hard to fully evaluate but a good middle of the road IPA. Quite drinkable and one that I would come back to.
