COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle-purchased at Whole Foods Chandler, AZ February 2014-sampled march 2014 Pours bright orange lightly hazy with a small soapy white head with some rockiness. nose is very catty-lots of tropical, cat piss, gym sock, (must be simcoe, amarillo or something)-not the best aroma for sure. Flavors exhibit the catty notes quite a bit-lots of tropical papaya notes, pink grapefruit, some lite resin. body is lush with mild carbonation (but not too lite). Long finish of lingering pink grapefruits, papaya and lite pineapple. not a bad beer but could use some better hop varieties to make it less catt-y.

Sampled in a bomber. A really hoptastic brew. Clean white head over an orange base. Super quality ale.

gyllenbock (8243) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from City Beer, February 2014. Hazy dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of hops, grapefruit, malt and some "earth". Bitter and a bit unbalanced. Not the best DIPA that I have tried.

Daytonbeer (726) - Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours orange with white head and very little lacing. Strong and pleasant aroma...well balanced between pine and citrus. Taste is the same with some spicy notes and enough malty backbone to make it more than drinkable.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bomber. No date. Unsure of age.. Pours light amber, with an orange hue. One finger head, which dissipates to a thin ring, leaving spotty soapy lacing. Ripe tropical aromas of guava, mango, OJ pulp and dried florals. Palate is full, with lower carbonation. Flavors of bitter orange citrus, mango, herbs, pine and dried florals cling to the palate, on the lingering finish. A deceivingly big beer, with a big hop nuances. Best enjoyed chilled, not straight out if fridge cold. The aromas and flavors integrated and became more expressive as the beer warmed. Overall, a good IPA for hopheads.. Let it warm. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

poured from a 22 oz bottle, it is a hazy light brown color with a sweet floral/citrus aroma. The taste is more pinecone hops with a fairly bitter finish. This is a nice bitter IIPA, but doesnt have the fruity hop flavor and aroma that I really love in an IIPA.

brybell (1) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2014 does not count
This was a great beer. Poured a rather dark golden color, and slightly cloudy. I was surprised by how dark it was for an IPA. Small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma was sweet, some citrus notes, with lots of hoppy resinous pine. It was very sweet, but not super malty, which I was surprised about. Hops were balanced by the sweetness. Overall I really enjoyed this one.
