Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows heavy sweet clean malt with some fruity confectionery and piny hops.
Similar flavours with lots of malt and some pine and resinous hops, but then a massive sharp bitterness rolls through accompanied by a fair bit of booze.
Body feels pretty thick.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a medium creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet caramel / crystal malts, tropical fruit and some grassy piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready crystal malts and tropical fruit with a big resiny piney hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, similar to the Bolllocks with more bitterness and less alcohol. Another solid over the top DIPA.

Caramel malt aromas, earthy hops, traces of resin and citrus. Pours gold with a slight chill haze under a pillowy bone white head that provides thick lace. The beer has a rich malty palate with toffee and graham cracker supported by traces of fruit and balanced by a rich assertive hop bitterness on the finish. Slight alcohol warming on the finish. Very creamy texture.

Another beer out of Ipswich, MA. This is a collaboration between Brash and Ska Brewing (CO) and is in the double IPA style.

The color is coppery with a decent hop aroma. The first sip yielded a medium body with an initial metallic taste. The hop character I would not describe as floral or piney, rather grapefruit but more like the bitter rind instead of the fruit. 129 ibu says the label (which features badass artwork btw). The aftertaste was lingering and somewhat odd. I drank half the bottle and decided to move on...my wife (a big hop head) didn't want the rest either.

I get the impression that they were just going for "BIG" over everything else. Maybe that was a noteworthy approach back when craft beer was in its infancy (ie. Arrogant Bastard) but personally I feel like that's been done and executed better. At around $10 for a bomber I would look elsewhere before purchasing again.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99. Bottled 10/04/13. Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.

Pours a hazy orange gold with a finger and a half white head. Wispy layer of retention and a fair bit of lace.

Aromas of bittersweet citrusy hops, vague earthy oak and sweet bready malts.

Taste follows the nose, Bitter earthy pine, grapefruit peel, wet grass, muted oranges, cracker, bread, sweet malts and some booze.

Medium oily body with moderate carbonation. Long grassy bitter finish.

Another in a long line of seemingly collapsed collaborations. I prefer the individual brewerys' independent IPAs to this. Not bad at all (and I had no problems polishing off the bomber) but it's nothing spectacular. Not quite worth the cost of entry considering how much better both The Bollocks and Modus Hoperandi are.
