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.

Pours a clear golden orange with a slight white head that fades quickly. Good lacing. Strong scents of grapefruit on the nose with hints of malt. Powerful hop bitterness throughout the palate with strong notes of malt. Medium bodied with light carbonation creating a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes bitter. Overall, this is definitely a well crafted and balanced DIPA, just a little to malty for my taste.
