A very well balanced taste with floral citrus and piney hops that do not obliterate a basic malt sweetness. Not generally a fan of double IPAs this is one I could drink more than one of.

Canned 11-5. 4 pack purchased from Midtowne Bottleshop for $10.50.

This is a high octane DIPA with significant pine and a resiny sweetness, i n the same realm as Hopslam and Maharaja. I think it's slightly more drinkable than other 10% DIPA's - finishing a little drier and with less caramel malt flavoring. I prefer Champion's Fruitbasket and Fruitless DIPAs, but this is a very nice, locally brewed, IPA.

This is a slightly hazy copper colored beer with a white head. The smell is pleasant with citrus and sweet malts followed by pine. The citrus scent is mainly orange with grapefruit notes. The taste is malty sweet with pithy citrus flavors. The sweetness yields to a nice bitterness that builds a bit after the swallow. Quite nice and hoppy DIPA.

growler filled from the brewery.

a- about as good as it gets for a dipa. Gorgeous dark copper. Plenty of head - about 2 inches in a snifter glass.
s- growler smells incredible, glass aromatics hits me with citrus. Orange, Lemon, Pine tree, cyprus trees, bread, flowers.
t- malts up font, as expected a ton of hops in the front, middle, and end. Getting malts there too. Surprising me with balance.
m- Bubbly and acidic, some alcohol burn but that's expected.
o- This is a dang good DIPA. Best brew Champion has to offer IMHO.

Damn strong double IPA. It says 10%, not 8%, on my can, and it packs a punch, and was flavorful, with definite hop dominance but respectable levels of malt flavor and slight sweetness. This beer doesn't mess around and delivers on its promise as big and bold.

A-golden copper, initial head that dissipated almost completely for me
S-alcohol twinge to hoppy fumes
T-the best part. As above
F-zesty, like expected from a powerful IPA
O-as above

Canned 11/5/15 drank from ipa glass 1/5/16. Very good dipa. Not too malty/sweet with the hop bite finish that sometimes gets lost with this type of beer.
