Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 10-19-2010

Big big DIPA, this behemoth is loaded with Columbus, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe and some other secret hops for a well balanced 2x4 to the face. With an F.G of 23 and an SRM of 4-6, this beer is a heavy hitter, but doesn't have the super maltiness of most other DIPA's.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Hazy yellow with a white creamy head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is good.

A: Huge citrusy/fruity hop notes, tropical, and some spicy/dank character. Not much in the way of malt character, maybe a touch of some neutral breadiness. The hops blast through everything. The hop character in the aroma is amazingly balanced and complex, the best smelling beer I have ever encountered.

T/M: The taste is similar to the aroma, with a big bitterness upfront, and a smooth progression into some intense and complex fruity/citrus hops. The malt adds a little breadiness, and helps in balancing the beer out, although this thing as all about hop flavor. The mouthfeel is light for the strength and does not get that resiny caramel malt character that some DIPAs get.

Overall, this is an incredible DIPA, I wish I could have it on a regular basis. The hops are explosive, complex, and balanced, the malt provides excellent support without ever becoming to sweet or invasive, and the bitterness is big and smooth. (1,010 characters)

On tap at the Falling Rock.

A bit hazier than I like, but the nose is full of hop danky goodness (like pine needles and mint) that's unlike most of its kind. Flavor follows the same path with a clean malt profile and medium, creamy body. And despite the high ABV and hop-focus it's surprisingly balanced and easy to throw down the neck hole; although the brewer recommended that I use a straw; no joke.

Glad I got a chance to try it. (435 characters)

My first ever beer review. Which is appropriate because this is the beer I've been waiting my whole life for. Smells like God just walked by. Tastes like tortured love. Punches like an innocent being dragged off to a life in the slammer. Hops? I guess it's hoppy. If by Hoppy you mean Holy Shi*t I can't believe this is in my mouth right now. The word BOOYAH was created to describe this beer. Run, don't walk, to Jackson Hole. Buy me some extra while you're there! (465 characters)

Served in a shaker pint on tap

A - Mostly clear pale straw with a 1 finger eggshell head with good froathy head retention and moderate lacing

S - Strong tropical and citrus fruits with a big emphasis on mango, grapefruit, apricots.

T - A nice balance of mild bitteness, touch of alcohol, and big tropical fruit notes with a suprising large malt presence. Most DIPA utilize yeast that process all the fermentable sugars to let the hops shine, but this beers seems to showcase the hops well while still staying pretty sweet. Despite the sweetness very palatable, I could drink this all day!

M - Light body, moderate carbonation, alcholol is ridiculously well hidden, I almost doubt the near 10% rating they have on this one.

O - Freaking amazing. One of the brewers was kind enough to chat it up with me and gave me a mini tour. Mad props, can't wait to come back to see their progress. Drink this beer and everything they have as you won't be dissappointed. (961 characters)

On tap.

Nice look and head. Fine aroma, excellent taste and feel.

On par with the better Imperials available. If you can find it, don't pass it up.

A very nice Imperial IPA. (178 characters)

This beer was too sweet and heavy for me.

Great hop and malt profiles though! 10.4% is very well hidden. (108 characters)

This was my beer oasis. Locally, Jackson has some good breweries, but this beer blew me away. Heady Topper clone all the way, but my god, did they hit it on the nose!!!! Unreal DIPA goodness. If available, I would buy no other beer locally. If you are ever lucky enough to visit Jackson Hole Wyoming, this needs to be your first stop, before you go to your hotel or hit the mountain... stop here first and drink a 2X4!!!! Not only was this beer a flavor explosion, but the brew master and locals where top notch people. Yes, my 3 Floyds shirt did get me some street credit and a tour, but these guys are just the finest people you will meet. Thai Me Up and 2x4 are hidden treasures I will not soon forget! I have only tasted a beer this good once before and it came from that famous silver can! This beer is one for the angels!!!! (830 characters)
