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

wbfudge (5) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2016 does not count
From a 12 oz bottle. Poured an orange amber color with a solid frothy head like water over a Wisconsin River dam. Smells like hops,hops, & hops. Citrusy grapefruit/lime. Has a medium/full mouth feel and I think I detect an ever so slight malt presense at the finish.The hop cone in bottle is kinda cool and I like this beer

Decent nose and pretty enough, this potentially potent beer hidez its alcohol well. Structurally its a bit flacid but its not bad and that hop cone gimick is hard to resist for any hophead.

Rated ti 22.12.2015.

bottle. Amber clear. Boozy caramelly bit barleywiney nose. Hoppy citrus, some grapefruits. Nuts. Full med bodied. Sweetness, lots of bitters for balance tho, drinks quite well. Bitter piney overcooked caramels, some yeasty dirt dough. A bit,messy, but flavourful, iipa bordering on a barley wine.

olio (10548) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2015
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. BBE 31.10.2016.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Intense hops on the nose as expected, resin and lots of pine, sweet tropical fruits too. Caramel malt flavor, mango, orange and pine, resinous and a bit oily hops. Full-bodied, bitter and oily palate. Intense and tasty, maybe a bit too sweet. Good nonetheless.

bytemesis (9231) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber, medium beige head, dissipates fairly quickly, some lacing. Aroma is perfume, caramel malts, and pine cones. Flavor is medium sweet and hugely bitter, caramel perfume and pine cones again. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. M.E.H.

BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle, thanks to Matt, poured hazy copper with a thin white head and lacing with a beer-logged hop cone floating in top. Aromas of floral hop, resin, lemon, and caramel malt. Flavor is mild bitter and a little boozy.

ThirstyBird (2997) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Pours a hazy reddish amber with an off white head. The taste is caramel rich fruit, christmas spice. The taste is dense caramel, rich fruit, somewhat dry ending. Medium body with average carbonation.

3.2
Erzengel (9497) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Many thanks to Rian for sharing. Nice idea of putting a hop cone into a bottle. The beer has a sweetish body with a subtle layer of hops, that could be a bit more intense. Floral hints with malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Nice bitterness, but way too less hop profile. Still nice.

3.2
bookman10 (1208) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a cloudy copper with small head. Aroma has some floral and some fruit. Flavor is bitter, with some underlying biscuity sweetness. Some citrus flavor, but kind of cloying and almost syrupy. Not my favorite.
