Notes/Commercial Description:
Uh, we forget...Oh Yeah, this is a big beer. Mind blowing amounts of hops give this beer tons of flavour and aroma. Not for the faint of heart. The bigger, meaner cousin to the Hop Circle IPA.

Holy hops!! I have to admit that this is one of my favourite beers and was excited to see it start the month off. It pours a nice coppery colour with and inch and half tan head that sticks to the glass. The nose hits you with a citrus hops which is followed up by a huge kick of hops on the palate. I've tried in vain finding out what the International Bitterness Unit (IBU) rating is but it has to be in the high 80's. I think this covers up some of the alcohol flavor which is subdued considering it comes in at 8.5% ABV. If you like hoppy beers this is a must try.

Pours a nice deep amber colour with a thick creamy head of 1" that would have lasted over 2 minutes, but I couldn't wait to try it. Nice strong pine, wet grass aroma with hints of grapefruit, bread and a bit of apricot. First taste has strong resinous hops, then grapefruit and caramel malts hit the tongue and as you swallow there is the pineapple after taste. Read somewhere that this was at 85 IBU but it tastes lower than that. A nice balance of hops and malts belies the 8.5% ABV, making it a smooth drink with a sneaky kick. I could easily drink 4-5 of these and therefore would surely find out why they call it Amnesiac.
