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

nielsedd (82) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy light orange wiht a good amount of beige head that reduces to a thin later. Nice lacing. Smells of very aromatic hops: orange peel, grapefruit, berry, pine, and floral notes. Tastes of orange peel, grapefruit, light resin, and caramel malt. Good balance, and a very good beer.

Marstonlad (976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Guest tap at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours hazy amber with a little white head. The aroma features sweet maltiness and piney hoppiness; very hoppy, but displays also maltiness. Taste starts light to medium sweet but is on the whole predominantly bitter; very fresh and crisp hoppy bite. Pine, resin and caramel with a touch fruitiness appear. The palate is medium to full bodied, average in carbonation. Very good.

Tap (RBESG2017 Lindaliners advance party, Kitty's, Helsinki) (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Peachy resiny hoppy aroma, piney. Big bold fruity piney resiny taste. Covers the ABV wilth all that hopping, but it's still remarkably drinkable for a DIPA. Finish is piney and perfumey.

Tide (4566) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Draught at Kitty's. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, resin, hops, caramel, a bit of pine and mango. Bitter finish wuth citrus, hops, caramel, resin, pine, mango and grass. Hood imperial IPA.

kajser27 (2087) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 29, 2017
Hazy, amber colored, small+ off white frothy head, floating cone is a nice touch. Aroma is of caramel, medium+ citrus, floral and pine, some resin. Taste is very sweet malt with caramel, citrus, orange and some hard candy, floral pine and some fruity, medium+ hoppiness, bit toasty, medium+ bitterness, dryish. Medium to full, soft carbonation, oily to resiny. Some Atlantic voyage noticeable, other than that, a fine DIPA! (bottle, Beermoth, Manchester)

Villyzzz (463) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Tap at pub. Pours hazy amber colored with medium sized off-white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Taste has strong hops and malts with citrus. Okay.

tiong (7754) - 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 (2278) - 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.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Keg at Whole Foods Wauwatosa, 9/8/16. Clear copper, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tropical, piney, sticky hops, pale malt. The taste is herbal hops, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.
