It just wasnt enough to use a blend of 5 varieties of hops in our India Pale Ale. We needed more. We needed to go wholehog! So, we added a sixth hop and created a more pronounced hop nose and a massive hop flavor for our American twist to this legendary style.

Ahh... well, the ABV hints that this is a DIPA, but there is nothing else in here that suggests that it is. Lightly hopped, not a very big malt backbone. To me, this would be a decent session beer if the ABV wasnt so high. Sort of like a higher octane Newcastle Brown Ale, with a little addition of hops. Average. Paid $7.99/4 pack.

Pours reddish orange. Thick off white head. Thick, syrupy aroma. A blend of resin and citrus, almost chemically character.

Has a deep floral hop aroma combined with notes of baked citrus. Has six varieties of hops and creates a solid mouthfeel. Has a lingering finish of supple hop bitterness, tangy citrus fruit and robust malt.

burg326 (5389) - Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Poured an amber copper color from the tap with aromas of malt, caramel, feint hops and a touch of bitterness. Flavors were malt forward with light citrus hops, lit orange peel Inge the aftertaste, not over the top bitterness but some is there with a light over cloying sweetness.

Better than was expecting. Very much a "grapefruit, pine, hoppy" beer. Not too special but, like I said, better than was expecting. The taste was there, probably one of the better stevens point brewery beers.

Bottle. Pour is copper in color with a thin off white head. Strangely ALCOHOLIC in aroma but not so in taste. Some bitter hops, some tropical fruits and some sweet malt. As far as this being a DIPA... the alcohol is definitely there; but sadly, the hop-punch is missing.

Foggy amber beer pours with a sticky white head that laces incredibly well amd lasts longer than the pint. The aroma is complex with a variety of grains including rye. Right away you cqn tell its strong from the palate. Its so dang smooth though its a pleasure to drink. This is definitely re-orderable, whereas so many of these are not because I just want to try them one time. It reminds me of two hearted but a little maltier. Please dont kill me for that, I know it can sound blaphemous. The flavor is complex, floral, sweet, malty, and smooth. Thin viscosity hop resin dominates the flavor.dominates

Aroma is like opening a new bottle of cough medicine. Taste is OK, but this is not an imperial IPA; at least not in my world.

Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with lots of sediment and good lacing. Aroma is malty with a hint of butterscotch. Taste is a sharp and moderately offensive, with a stinging tang of aspirin bitterness. Any good nuances are short-lived and youre left with the boozy pill powder bitterness in the aftertaste. Barely salvageable retronasal, but its not even remotely worth it.

Lemke10 (974) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2014
This pours a mostly clear, dark amber color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is fairly sweet and yeast for being an India Pale Ale. The taste is smooth, sweet, and fairly malty. In the finish there is a bit of a bitter taste but not anything you would expect from an IPA. Not bad by any means but certainly not very true to the style.

Hardly any aroma at all...faint hops...thats about it. Nice deep orange color. White head fades fast. Sweet malt at first...but a little off. Quickly followed by deep bitterness that is harsh. Finishes with the same bitterness and lingers with off tasting notes. You can feel the alcohol...nice warm glow, but besides that...not much going on here.
