Can picked up at Dutchs from notes (I wasnt sure where to put this originally). Pours a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, toasted bread, citrus and resiny hops, moderate bitterness but on the light side for an imperial Ipa, ok.

Can. Poured clear dark golden color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2016
12oz can, from Dutchs. Spelled "Schloppy Monster". This one is labeled 8.2%. Coded 10262327. Nothing about the can says anything about wet hops, I doubt thats the case this year. Half hazy orange color. Pours with a bigger white head, drops to a half finger, with good retention. Leaves great ridges and webs of lace. Nice bigger citrusy, kind of piney hop. Bit of a bigger malt to it too, but its not bothersome. Caramel, some biscuit. Makes for a nice balance. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium to bigger body. Mild slick texture. Lighter, smooth carbonation. A balanced DIPA.

Dogbrick (11880) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of sweet malt and grapefruit. The finish is hoppy up front and leaves an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Draught at Monroeville: Aroma of hops, hop oil, and caramel malts. Poured amber/copper in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, caramel malts, and some citrus. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Soft carbonation. Sweet, slightly bitter, hop finish. 9.2%ABV is totally hidden.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the Pour House. A deep clear amber red color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma has a lot of brown sugar and bitter grapefruit. My first impression is that the alcohol in this is pretty subdued for how high the ABV is. At first taste, it isnt that bitter, but it grows on the tongue. A juicy grapefruit sweetness with some caramel that attempts to balance it out. However, the bitter just keeps getting stronger, and becomes a little bit overpowering. There are some peach and floral notes in there as well. The body feels heavy, but is sort of watery without much carb.

Nate (4247) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2007
On tap at the Pour House. Has a very mild nose to it, contrary to expectations. Subtle grapefruit, citrus rinds, bitter. Coppery amber clear with a bit of chill haze, lacing off-white foamy head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with good malty sweetness, caramel, then the hops hit. Bitter throughout the rest, coating the entire palate. Starts with mild floral-fruity notes, then descends to a visceral chalky citrus-rind eye-squinching bitterness that takes care of any sweetness lingering about. Mild alcohol warming. Subtle apricot flavors, too.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a murky bronze-brown with a large creamy khaki head. The aroma was moderately sweet and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, tangy and malty with an intense floral and fruity presence that was a bit harsh. The finish was long, bitter and dry.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2007
On tap at the Pour House. Hazy caramel, off white head. Aroma is hops, caramel, peat. Flavor is hops, peat, malt, wheat, vanilla. The alcohol is well hidden and even though I can detect the peat flavor, its not too wet dog or wet barn.
