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.

3.81/5  rDev -3.1%

A: 3.75 Dark orange-amber with a small head.
S: 4.25 Big aroma, evident clearly when it's just sitting in front of me. Ripe fruity citrus hop scent.
T: 4 This is certainly a strong IPA, though the body is surprisingly light. Very high bitterness and a lot of grapefruit-citrus hop flavor. Malt doesn't really stand up to the hops, despite the strength. This is for hop lovers.
M: 4.25 as I mentioned, rather light for strength
O: 4 Pretty good double IPA.

A - Pours a clear amber with a one-finger creamy head. Very light lacing.

S - Heavy aroma of grapefruit and pine.

T - Follows the aroma with lots of grapefruit and resinous hops. There is just enough caramel sweetness to balance the bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbnation. Mouthfeel is sticky with a dry finish.

O - A nice very hop forward DIPA. Very easy drinking.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Features a clover honey colored body and a thick, sticky, white head. Orange and lemon hop aroma with a touch of malt sweetness in the nose. Hop bitterness dominates the taste; some citrus flavors; very mild malt flavor. Medium-heavy body; big carbonation feel; very dry finish.

Hop bitterness rules this DIPA. The intensity is rather overpowering and gives the beer an almost one-dimensional quality. Malt and grain character is greatly lacking in presence. Overall, the beer lacks balance and refinement but still quite drinkable if you're a glutton for bitterness.
