Big time citrus hop aromas and a bit of resin. Taste is a big pine/sweet bitterness that fades well.

Tap at town hall as "15 year IPA". Listed as 9.4% abc. Server assured me it was their 15th anniversary beer. Amazing hop aroma. Slightly hazy body with nice white lace. Wonderful double ipa. Rich, hoppy. piscator34 (2577) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft sample. Pale amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of cut grass, pine sap, navel orange, and a blend of pale and caramel malt. Flavors are of fruity caramel, spicy and classic citrusy hops, and more pine. A leafy/herbal chunky bitterness balances out the heft provided by the malts. Not as lean as I would like from this style, but still satisfying overall. BVery (10716) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Tap at the brewpub - called "15 Year IPA" on the menu, and weighs in at 9.4% ABV. Clear orange pour with a foamy white head. Rich complex hop aroma, sharp hop bite in this. Quite good. bytemesis (8805) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head and awesome lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit, and resin. Flavor is about the same - hope forward with a light sweetness. Very bitter in the body and through the finish. Medium body. Quite nice.

Potent. Pine sol finish. A robust amber colored ipa. Very nice. Good ipa brewery. Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Amber with short head. Fairly dry DIPA with a great hop profile, fruity but quite bitter. Aroma is fruity and a bit dank. Very nice beer.
