Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JohnGalt1 on 11-11-2012

Kelso unloaded the hop cooler on this beer. It comes in at a little over 10.5 pounds of hops per barrel, and is off the IBU charts. This beer is NOT balanced, and was NOT intended to be, and will never be balanced. Seriously, if you don't like hops, this beer might possibly ruin your day.

Tasty and well balanced at 9.5%. Beautiful golden-amber hue. Lovely pine and tropical fruit notes followed up by a nice hop backbone to round things out. I am continually impressed by 10 Barrel's 'small tank productions'. I will definitely seek this out again. (260 characters)

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a medium creamy off white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is fruity, resiny, dank hops with a little caramel / crystal malt.

The flavor is a little sweet bready malt with a little fruit and a lot of piney resiny hops that have a bit of a harsh tarry alcoholic aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice hop bomb of a DIPA. (450 characters)

22oz bomber, hilliards can-pint

Bright glowing orange body - aromatic hop profile. Moderate bitterness and a bit syrupy - sugary orange peel, lemon grass, pine sap. Oily body with a palate coating hop bitterness. A good, relatively textbook, NW DIPA. (251 characters)

Stopped by the Boise COOP for a tasting/meet and greet with Shawn Kelso... Tasted this and picked up a few bottles for $9ish a piece... Pours a slightly hazed golden... nice white head with great lacing.

Jesus... That is hoppy!! Tons of mango... melon... tangerine... pineapple? A freaking tropical fruit bowl... Seriously, it smells like it will cake your nose hairs with lupulin glands... a very tiny bit of residual pale maltiness makes all the different fruity hoppy notes mesh.

WOW.... Caking hop flavors, but surprisingly not as bitter as I would have guessed... Again... a massive tropical fruity presence... just enough malt to deliver the hop whollup.. oily and clinging.. body is spot on, but the carbonation seems at touch light... amazing how FRESH this tastes.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with active carbonation, a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, pineapple and other tropical fruit, light citrus and light pine hops. Flavor follows with citrus, orange, sweet malt, piney hops; finishes with lemon rind and herbal and pine hops. Nicely balanced, despite the label description. Medium bodied. A well made, pleasant to drink IIPA (447 characters)

Got this one as an extra in a trade with a west coast BA'er and I may need to get more of these!

Poured a medium golden amber that is translucent with perhaps just the slightest of sediment. Produced a bone white head that quickly fleeted to just a shadow atop the brew and an inconsistent lacy ring around the glass. The smells are great! Like many west coast dIPA's, it has a piney type aroma. Dark hop resin. There is slight fruity/dish soap smells, but this is definitely a rustic, pine hop smell. The tastes mirror these aromas. It may not be out of the brewery fresh, but it's pretty recent. There is a great bitterness to it. I don't see any IBU listings on the bottle, but it has to be high. The bitterness doesn't quickly fade but gets comfortable on the lips. A great beer. Reminiscent of Dreadnaught. If you can find it, scoop this one up. Another win for Oregon beer!

Cheers! (889 characters)

On tap at Belmont Station. They were out of the super forklift, and so at the recommendation of the bartender, I ordered a glass of this. Very glad I did.

The beer pours a peachy orange color with good head and considerable sticky lacing. The nose is impressive as well, as I pick up considerable tropical fruit, citrus and pine. The beer just smells very juicy. On the palate, this beer is every bit as impressive, with the flavor profile replicating the nose very closely. The finish long and bitter, with the moderate tropical sweetness nicely countered and balanced by the the level of hoppy bitterness once gets in this beer. Mouthfeel is meidum bodied to full, with a long, pleasantly bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is quite good.

Really nice beer from 10 Barrel... one of the best beers I can ever recall having from them. (888 characters)

S - Citrus orange and lemon, and lots of pine as well.

T - Orange peel, bitter grass and pine.

D - Good carbonation and a medium body.

O - Citrusy and piney, a little bitter and underwhelming. (346 characters)

Served on tap into a snifter.

A- Poured a hazy dark orange with a bright white soapy head that left no lace.

S- Whoa, this is super dank and juicy. Huge grapefruit, peach, pineapple, pine, and dank hop notes. Insanely aromatic and pungent hop aroma.

T- Really dank and piney with big juicy grapefruit, peach, and pineapple hops. Moderate bitteness.

M- Full bodied, slightly sticky, pretty big warming, and low carbonation.

O- This is an incredible hop bomb of a DIPA. Among the best and most pungent I have ever had. (523 characters)
