COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an interesting ale. First, we put in a bunch of hops--enough to take this beer to over 100 IBUs. That is whack in anyone’s book. How we got the hops in there is another story.

We add hops at every stage of the brewing process. A quick primer on the process:

THE MASH: That’s where we take the malt and convert the grain starches into sugar, using our mash tun.

THE GRANT: We run the resulting sweet liquid, wort, through the grant on the way to the brew kettle.

THE BREW KETTLE: This is where we add the hops and water to the wort. Think of it as the stock pot you’d make soup in.

THE HEAT EXCHANGER: After we’ve brewed, we send the hot liquid through a heat eachanger on its way to the fermenter.

THE FERMENTER: This is where we add yeast and let it do its thing which results in alcohol and carbon dioxide. The beer is done!

THE FILTER: After fermentation, we may run the beer through a filter to clarify it before it goes to the serving tank.

THE SERVING TANK: The finished beer is ready to serve to the taps at the bar.

You tell us if it was worth it. This unique IPA was named after our General Manager, because he’s involved in every aspect of our operations, just like the hops in this brew. Cheers!

bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - APR 23, 2011
Draft at Smokehouse. Hazy copper small head. Nose is a bit skunky with some piney notes. Taste of strong hop profile and sound maltiness. Balanced but a bit "old" tasting. Full body and just this side of a true imperial IPA. I would have given it higher marks but this beer seemed a bit dated and not fresh.

a cloudy golden color with a decent hoppy flavor. However I expected something much more. Nothing special as far as an IPA is concerned. draft at brewpub

Growler. Poured a hazy gold color with an off-white head.Sweaty hop aroma that covers most of the malt other than some sweetness. Malty start to the flavor that leads quickly to piny hops. Long hop finish. Semi-dry finish with a medium body.

Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
PPRBSG 09. Pours a hazy golden with a nice dense head. Aroma is zesty funky hops- some citrus and light dank ok light malt backbone. Flavor is green pine and citrus hops gets a slight bit resinous and tacky with high beta, light crackery and toasted malts light sweetness and a mostly dry bitter finish. pretty good.

shigadeyo (3856) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2009

5/20/2009: Bitter Dan Extreme IPA has an inviting citrusy/orange hopped aroma with some lightly toasted toffee malt. This beer has BIG HOPS! The flavor is floral and sugary with a good level of bitterness and chewy toffee malt. It has a good body that is medium to medium-full in weight and goes down smooth. This is a tasty IPA! Double IPA though? No, not quite...

Draught (pint) at Barley’s Smokehouse in Columbus, Ohio. Rating #20 for this beer.

JoeMcPhee (10187) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Growler at PilsnerPeter’s Ratebeer Spring Gathering. Deep golden beer. Lightly hazy appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy. Soft resinous character, fruity grapefruit and rich earthy bitterness. Lots of chewy pine resin behind a soft sweet maltiness. Not cloying at all. Rich and bright with a bit of lingering fruity/piny hop bitterness. Really tasty.

3.9
LilBeerDoctor (4277) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Growler at PPRBSG09. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, and piney hops. Very inviting! Flavor of citrus, pale malts, and a bitter finish. Nice malt backbone. Some harshness in the palate, but this subsides a little as the beer warms. Pretty solid. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

3.6
PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Growler: Hazy orange with an off white head. Nice citrusy cascade aroma- a touch resiny with a light pale malt background. Creamy on the palate. Light nutty notes in the flavor with a balancing citrusy and resiny bitterness. A balanced and well executed IIPA.
