Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-08-2003

This Hop Monster uses multiple kettle hop additions with the technique of doubling the hop amount each addition (exponentially). Add in the hop back and the continuous dry hopping and your starting to get the picture. The beer is finished off with a "body-bag" sized hop-bag full of hop cones and oak chips. There it ages and mellows, disguising the alcohol content for a double strong, incredibly hoppy, yet drinkable beer.

A- Pours a very slight hazed amber orange color pretty bright overall. With a nice white head, head turns into a cap and leaves some really nice layered lacing.

S- A ton of tropical fruits here. Mango, pineapple and grapefruit. A very light malt back bone and a hint of alcohol.

T- Blasted with hops here. Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and a bit of pine. The hops smash my taste buds to a pulp.

M- Slick and oily. Fuller side of medium and carbonation was good.

O- A pretty awesome brew for sure.

Bottle shared at a Damico beer tasting. Pours a golden color with a white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and earthiness. Alcohol comes through a bit. Sweet citrus taste with a nice harsh hop hit. Yet still somehow smooth and creamy. Damn tasty.
