Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sprucetip on 11-28-2012

Nugget and Apollo hops added in the brew kettle provide a green, floral aroma and citrus hop base, while the later addition of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and orange - complimenting the resilient malt profile.

Best by date is 013115 (to left of barcode on label) Clear rich amber with one finger white head. Lacing is good. Smell is floral fruity tropical with light pine and bready malts.
Taste is fruits such as mango orange some peach. The bitterness begins to take over with a pine resin aspect. Interesting how the hop character grows and gives in to the big malt bill. Pretty well balanced for the style.
Mouthfeel is medium to full with less than ideal carbonation.
Overall a fine but not stellar version of the DIPA style. Very easy drinking and the hop bitterness does not peg my bitter meter. I enjoyed this very much. Happy New Year folks.

Hopothermia pours a dark golden color with a big lacing fluffy white head. There is a earthy and roasted malty aroma. The taste is more balanced, earthy flavors, some hop flavors, the warmth from the alcohol comes through. Nice body, a little flat. Overall it has some big flavors, but is very malty.
