They say an elephant never forgets. When it comes to this double IPA, you wonít either. This gentle giant certainly certainly has mad hops, but ferments out dry (,) so itís not too malty on the finish. Clocking in at 10.8 percent ABV, itís 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

Pours cloudy amber with a small off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel and pine. Flavor of sweet malts, caramel, grassy and resin
Too sweet and malty for me

From a can with around 3 months aging, and poured into a Het Kapittel chalice. Amber gold color with big head of clouds. Subtle aroma of robust hops and grains. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malt, straw hops, grapefruit rind, pine sap, slight toothpaste, grains, minerals, and pixie dust. Overall bright, robust, flavorful, hoppy in a happy way...sweet. I could do another.

SHIG (4956) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Can: Poured orange with off white head. Aroma is huge hops with malts. Taste is juicy hops with backbone maltiness.

wlajwl (6751) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2017
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.

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 17, 2016
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.

473ml can. This brewery all of the sudden popped up and htis isnít west-coast sytle. Shitty sweet double ipa, meh.

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, itís pretty good. Donít understand the low scores. Itís 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.
