COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a true West Coast-style Double IPA made with huge amounts of hops - both in the kettle for flavor and later in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this immensely drinkable hop-bomb.

Bottle @ Shady Oak. Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. Super piney and maybe some herbal notes. Kind of sticky and citrusy. A whole lot of grapefruit and resinous pine. Some nice apricot and peach. A little bit of sweet bread and maybe some caramel. Pretty nice.

high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Pours a mostly clear gold with a white head and lacing. It has a clean but strong hop aroma with lots of resin. The flavor is bitter, piney hops up front with a nice bitter finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle. Very pretty pour, golden orange with a towering top that clings to the glass. The earthy aroma is reserved but sturdy, ripe with leafy goodness. The drink is wonderful -- easy to drink, yet full-muscled with sticky hops. (#6003, 7/17/2015)

Bottle to snifter via charity raffle. Thanks to Morgan the rep for bringing this out. Nose is like forward initially. A large, billowing white head, taste is more tropical, light honeydew with a light mango flavor. Really good with the perfect bitterness and sweetness balance with no malt masking the hops. Nice stuff!

BOLTZ7555 (3127) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Golden honey pour with a small sticky white head. Bubble percolating from the bottom of the glass. Subtle aroma when compared to the flavor profile. The flavor is quite complex with a unique combination of tart and sweet. Candied citrus accompanied by floral qualities. Honey, lemon peel, freshly cut grass, evergreen, and orange rind. Pretty tasty.

Carried back from SN, 750ml bottle. Creamy and slightly sweet, musk. Grass citrus and piney notes but not over the top as the hop bomb label would suggest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pouring at EBF 2015. Pours a faintly hazed gold. Big citrus, sticky. Medium bodied, sweet and hoppy. Big and juicy, citrus and musk. Long chewy grapefruit peels.
