UPDATED: MAR 9, 2011 Appearance: Pours a bright yellow with a white swirl of head atop.
Aroma: Big dank citrus and a touch of grain.
Taste: Big bitter and citrus hops, dry malt with a twangy finish.
Mouthfeel: Moderate Carbonation, full bodied.
Overall: A tasty, fresh double IPA like beverage. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 1, 2011
A: The pour is quite hazy and turbid, just like many of the Bruery’s other beers. The head is about a finger tall and white in color without great retention.
S: Smells like hops more than anything. Lots of fresh grapefruit and some definite grass and straw qualities. There’s a touch of cooked corn in there and a mild sweetness. A big vegetal at points.
T: A mild sweetness: nowhere near what I’m accustomed to with beers of the malt liquor variety. Decently citrusy with some of that grapefruit character. Grass and hints of light fruits. A mild bitterness from the hops.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation to it.
D: This was actually not bad. Sort of like a sweeter and less awesome batch of Humulus lager (of one of the other humulus beers, perhaps). thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On draft at the Bruery Tasting Room. Pours a bright golden color with decent head. Very pronounced danky hop aroma. More so than any beer I can remember trying from the Bruery. Taste had a strong hop forward finish and then came some very pronounced malt flavor that reminded me of some of that malt liquor we all tried in college to save a few bucks. The finish was bitter but didn’t leave as clean a taste as I would like in a DIPA. Having it from a growler the second night gets a little old. Not sure I could handle too much of this upon the second tasting. JoeTheYounger (1195) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On draft at The Bruery. This was one of the hoppiest beers I think I’ve had from The Bruery. Had some grain taste to it and tons of hop onslaught. Easy to drink for 9.5%. Really enjoyed this one. Drank almost a whole growler later and felt like cornballing. kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Tap at The Bruery. Lots of hops present. Mango and citrus with some pine. Finishes creamy with not much bitterness. Very drinkable for the high APV.

Draft at the Bruery. slightly cloudy yellow pour, white head. Fruit, citrus, bready malt, and kind of grainy. Really easy to drink for the high abv. I wish I could get this for $2 a 40oz I would drink it a lot. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden body with a huge white head. Aromas are super dank, pine, citrus, pineapple and papaya. Flavors are slightly earthy and grainy, pine, fruity and crisp. Lively bubbles and dry. Pretty much a double IPA skipping the normal yeast.
