COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They say an elephant never forgets. When it comes to this double IPA, you wont either. This gentle giant certainly certainly has mad hops, but ferments out dry (,) so its not too malty on the finish. Clocking in at 10.8 percent ABV, its definitely not for the timid mice amongst you. Put on your trunks and dive in.

Pours a hazy, orange-copper with a off white head. Piney aroma with a little bit of citrus. Taste is not too good - a little mediciny. Many other better IPAs or DIPAs out there. Will not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is citrus, light pine, floral and strong fruit. The flavor is sweetish malts, grapefruit, mild pine needles and an alcoholic/spicy/increasingly bitter finish.

Light amber color with a diminishing khaki colored head. Sweet aromas, with ripe fruit, grapefruit, apricots, hints of sorghum and grainy bread. Heavier feel. Flavors much too much like the aromas, with sweet fruit and hints of alcohol. Fine call me a timid mouse.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2016 pours a hazy copper gold with a thick frothy persistent off white head. Earthy aroma with some light lemon citrus and pine. Oily thick mouth feel. Some spicy bite right from the get go. Definitely hop bitter, but with some additional vague spice notes. Different, but good. Leaves a floral linger in the sinuses. This is really an odd IIPA, but I like it.

Surprised to find two new ones while on the golf course a couple weeks ago. This and the nitro coffee stout from sam Adams. This worked well enough for me. A decent hop bite. The only real problem I had was that the strength of a couple of these all hit me at the same time, just as we were finishing up. Got a little too drunk.

Oh man, stupid error. Quick recap of review that was lost.

Pours hazy orange color. Three finger rocky tan head. Good retention, good lacing.

Aroma is malty sweet. Honey, pineapple, light tropical fruit.

Taste is shockingly resin at first. After that, nutty, bread mold. Some citrus and tropical fruit. Not a lot of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. Finishes somewhat sticky. Not real dry finish. No alcohol detected, even after warming.

Overall, its pretty good. Dont understand the low scores. Its a little different, but by no means less tasty. I would recommend it, and I would drink it again.

Weird IIPA. Despite the triple IPA strength it drinks smaller and less hoppy than most in the 8-9% range. Grapefruit and apple(?) forward nose and flavor. Just weird.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2016
Can. Shiny amber pour, super still, yet with a big ol head. The aroma is largely of tropical fruit salad. This also drinks with a distinct fruity character, super sweet and syrupy. This is pretty unique for a DIPA IMHO, and not what I expected. (#6163, 4/3/2016)

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light summer fruit flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. decent bitterness. Grapefruit and light summer fruit lingers with light sweet malt.

16oz can pours with a crystal clear copper body that has gold hues and supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up an odd earthy soapy sort of sensation as well as thin notes of citrus like gummy bears and floral hops and faint gravel. The taste starts with a blend of citrusy juicy hops, fussel like boozy pear and apple sweetness and then some sweet malts. To midway a thin resiny pine hop note comes to the surface to help pull this back toward being an IPA but fails in the end. For a drinking experience this does the trick but this is an odd IIPA.
