Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bright orange and crystal clear body. Bright white contrasting head and no lacing.

Huge piney aroma with dank and caramel sweetness. Faint bubble gum.

Enormously hoppy. Pine, tangerine, orange peel, and dank. Caramel then some wood add depth. The tangerine lingers with a strong finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and dry. Slightly boozy but as expected.

It's a top notch DIPA that's fresh and juicy. It's worth seeking out.
