Whoa freakin' Nellie! Yes, there are hops, as advertised. I swear, there were hop flowers rising from the rich, white, frothy head that sat upon a luscious copper foundation. Smell is, well, hops. Columbus. And lots of them. Taste is thick, like chewing on hop buds. Bitter! Some tea flavors (robust, like Darjeeling). After your taste buds and the beer warm up a bit, you can detect a bit of malty backbone, but it's the hops that hold this baby up. Nothing subtle here!

Pours a clear copper with a big and very persistent head. Lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Smell is big citrusy grapefruit hops. Taste is mellow toasty carmel malt upfront. A little underlying malt sweetness throughout. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness. Heavy creamy mouthfeel. This is a very rich tasting IPA. And by that I mean it has a fantastic maltiness behind the hops and even challenging the hops for center stage here. Also the heavy mouthfeel. Maybe the drinkability suffers a bit, but this is a great, and unique, IPA.

overall a good beer. This IPA seemed to have a little more sweetness than most but overall it seemed to balance out quite well. I like the way high IBUS but was pleased with this one also. Just a touch of creaminess added to the balance. Overall happy with this one. After reading other reviews, I was kind of mixed about trying, but once I did, I was glad I did...
