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.

Serving: 650 mL bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Clear, slightly amber gold. A dense, frothy white foam slowly recedes and leaves thick lacing.

Smell: Bright citrus, pine needles, some herbs and slight dank. Slight malt sweetness emerges as it warms.

Taste: Bold bitterness throughout, with some citrus following from the nose. Some caramel malt enters intermittently, but hops definitely dominate. Hints of alcohol, especially as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation, smooth feel.

Overall: Hardly balanced, but a tasty dose of hops.

Pours an orange yellow with list of fluffy white head that lasts and leaves lacing.

Nose is tropical fruit, citrus, with some peppery spice.

Taste follows nose. Tropical fruit at the front moving into grapefruit bitterness. There is an earthy and peppery finish.

I'm not sure how fresh this is. I was expecting a lot more hops from a DIPA.

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.
