UPDATED: NOV 13, 2005 Update: Had again when dry-hopped with amarillo and it makes it even better. This is an outstanding DIPA. jason (1836) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2006
My first beer at HBF, so I can remember it pretty well. The brewers said that it is made mostly with centennial cascade and chinook, which give it an excellent american citrus/piney flavor and aroma. The alcohol was very well hidden. Great IIPA.
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Draft. Smooth Imperial! Great aroma, perfect color. Flavor is fantastic but lite. Same great taste almost each sip and a nice head to it. The alcohol level is well hidden. One of Otto’s best. Cheers! goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Update: Same great grapefruit tones. Very smooth IPA with alcohol still well hidden.
Growler from JasonMech77 (that I had to drink myself...sweet) Poured a hazy amber color with a meidum sized off-white head. Big dry hop aroma of citrus, pine, tangerines, and some earthy notes. The hops pretty much covers up the malt. There was even a light hint of chocolate. The flavor was hop foward with citrus and pine. Some caramel maltiness showed itself at the finish. Nice amount of bittness back bone that gives this beer a great balance. Some warmth from the beer but the alcohol is hidden very well. Other than the fact that it is starting to kick my ass. Very nicely done and very drinkable. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Tap @ Hop Devil Grill - Dark hazy orange, creamy light tan head. Front loaded fresh hop nose of pine, peach, and hints of grapefruit and apricot. As it warms, wafts of brown sugar are well noted too. Flavor is supper hopped without major bitterness. Sweet caramel notes work their way in to actually bring this close to balance. Not quite, but very close. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. A very well made D-IPA in my book...

Had this beer on tap @ Hopdevil. Great appearance, luscious balanced of sweetness/hops. Very drinkable, the low carbonation helped extremely. The beer had the head and volume of a Nitro beer. One of the best Imp. IPA’s you are going to find. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2007
Big piney hops in the aroma.Pours a medium copper with a medium white head.Lots of malt with a good mix of piney hops in the flavor.Medium to full mouthfeel with a piney hop/malt finish. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Double D pours a delicious looking amber bronze with a big fluffy white head with thick, blanketing lacing. Fruity hop aroma chock full of citrus and pine with a strong caramel and biscuit malt scent to back up the hops. Very adventurous for a strong hoppy beer as the malts are incredibly thick and help carry the heavy hops. Full bodied, bitter and soapy this one drinks real well. Sweet malts with lots of bread and caramel flavor along with a solid nuttiness. Wonderful fresh citrus hops and some mild mixed berry flavor as well. mcberko (19227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits (peach, mango, orange), caramel, and citrus. Flavour of spicy hops, tropical fruits (as above), caramel and citrus. Most excellent. beern (222) - Alabama, USA - NOV 5, 2017
Pours hazy green-golden with a one-finger white head. Tastes of bitter hops almost like a hopped hefe. It’s full bodied and the alcohol adds to the bitterness. It’s creamy and frothy. The bitter hops and alcohol are an attack on the taste buds. Wow!
