COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our biggest brew by far. This hop head delight is loaded with seven hop additions! The tongue tingling bitterness comes from Amarillo, Chinook and Ahtanum hops. A great malt background balances the bitterness for a complex flavor.

If you can get your hands on this gem I suggest you do. Very hop forward beer. Very balanced. Great for any hophead. A must try. Also, if you are at the brewpub you need to try the food. Good all around place.

Draft at Walldorff's. Clear copper with a beige head. Sweet, light citrus and pine aromas. Sweet with a dry, resiny finish.

Sampled my wife’s draft at brewpub. Super-sized hoppy aroma that I could smell across the table when the server brought our beers. Bright, amber-orange. with medium head. Sweet grapefruit. Not as bitter as I expected.

On tap at Walldorff brewpub. Copper with a thin white crown. Aroma is very fruity with citrus and tropical flare to go with caramel and some floral notes. Grapefruit, citrus, caramel and floral notes on the palette with caramel and a hint of alcohol. Bitterness around average.

Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a dense, creamy eggshell head.. looked very good. The aroma picked up spicy pine, pineapple, and peppery hoppage over sweet caramel.. dank floral notes on the back of the nose.. came across very resiny. The flavor found sweet caramel and biscuity malts with bright alcohol-fueled bitterness around (mostly citrus and floral notes).. finished spicy with resiny bitterness, but not quite enough carbonation. Medium-bodied with not enough carbonation on the palate.. otherwise tasty and well-balanced.

Like the hop bill, but maybe the additions vould be better. It is definitely bitter but it isn’t round, it is rather blunt. Slightly spicy, dank, a decent malt backbone, the hops dont sing.

On tap at Walldorff. This beer is very likable, but the alcohol really sneaks up on you, as the huge hop bill disguises it quite well. In fact, I had no idea until logging on here that the ABV is this high; I just assumed I had a low tolerance... I love the nose on this beer; my wife thinks I have issues because I hold the glass to my face for inordinate amounts of time simply enjoying the aroma.

On tap at the brewpub. This was not a very good beer. Very thin and somewhat watery. Maybe I just had a bad one seeing the other reviews, but this is a very, very weak IPA.
