COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second you open this bottle there is no mistaking that this is not your average IPA. Massive hop additions of the most obnoxious breeds put this taste bud burner in a league all it’s own. Our bet is that you will think it is O’so Freakishly good! Caution! This brew is 9% and may contain a hop cone in every bottle (2009 to present vintages) ! We want to make sure to repeat this reminder that we put a hop cone in the bottle. Always pour into a glass to release the essence from the bottle.

2008 Edition: 22-oz bottle
2009 Edition: 12-oz bottles w/hop cone in bottle
2010 - 2013 Editions: 12-oz bottles w/Hop Warning label

tiong (6845) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2017 Draught @ William K Kurvi. Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of caramely malts, pine, citrus, grass and herbal notes. Taste is sweetish, caramely malty and grassy with some fruits, pine, citrus and resin. Finish is sweet, malty and caramely with some pine, resin, fruits and citrus. Sweet and caramely malty DIPA, doesn’t feel very fresh.

JorgeLee (1978) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Slightly hazy a ber, thick white foam. The hop cone is an unusual gimmick. Quite a big IPA, very hoppy in the sense of grassy, oily texture, dank, rather than citrus or pine or whatever. Long bitter finish. I quite liked it, even if it didn’t display huge nuances of flavour.

[email protected]’Haras, Tampere, Finland. Light/medium aroma with bit waxy, sweetish fruits. Deep orange color with small/minimal white head and hazy liquid. Medium/strong, averagely balanced taste with overaged fruits. Some wax and minerals dampen the sour nuances. A hint of malts. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, bit light taste for DIPA. Still has the distinctive nuances.

muzzlehatch (4921) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a Maudite glass. Moderate white soupy head decays to a lasting ring above the cloudy, near-opaque amber-copper body - no hop cone in this one...big expressive nose is dominated by sweeter, fruitier aromatics - mango, peach - and a bit of caramel-vanilla sugary spiciness, though there are touches of more pungent resinous tones as well...body is pretty sweet to begin with, lightly peppery/alcoholic throughout, lightly yeasty, growing more bitter towards the finish though the hops never really overtake the sweet malts until the very end which is just a bit drier and nicely sharp...body is full, somewhat syrupy, carbonation slightly low. This is solid enough though somewhat of a disappointment for me after the masterpiece that is their "regular" IPA, Hop Whoopin’. I think it definitely needs to be drunk a little warmer than what I started it out at - I tend to like IPAs fairly cold but in this and some other cases it doesn’t bring out the flavor as much as something closer to 55-60 degrees (F) does.

gaudinosmotors (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Thick, cloudy golden and almost gooey goodness. It’s a little thick on the nose. Almost dirty look to it. 2 bug hop buds swimming around the bottle caused a fairly bitty drink but the creamy and caramely orange taste offset that happily. It’s a now and again bottle tho. I couldn’t drink many.

Beerheart65 (1501) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Murky mahogany, thin off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity, tropical, bit pine, caramel malt, vanilla, mango, tangerine, fresh and inviting. Medium body, soft, velvety, low carbonation, mild bitterness, dries bit to finish, malt more evident here, caramel, toasted notes. Good balanced, tasty. Taste has darker tones than aroma which is more lively..first fruity then much more malty tones join. Long finish is malty and medium bitter with woody nites in finish.
