COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have set out to wilfully maim and cripple the palates of the most extreme hop head. This act of wanton destruction is in the true spirit of what festive brews are about, to create something unique and fun. It is our intention to create a violent and needless disturbance in your olfactory senses. The riotous confusion, from the unnatural quantity of dry hopping, will leave your palate satisfyingly violated after having just one taste. Only the brave can be assured to tame this hop insanity.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Very Fruity; tropical fruits, apricot, peach, pineapple, grapefruit citrus. Very Hoppy; piney oily resinous and earthy hops. Malty; sweet biscuity malts. Bittersweet very fruity hoppy throughout. Lingering bitter finish. More IPA than ASA. Very drinkable. Nice Beer! (2011-11-23)

500ml bottle picked up to share with my work buddies. We got a guy who we all mayhem so fitting in find this beer to share. Pours out copper topped with a small head. nose is sweet malts toffee caramel and faded hops. Taste is more of the sweet malts toffee notes and a little fruit. Overall dissatisfied just like the guy we work with.
