I have had this brew several times in the Tap Room. It is a very tasty brew! I like it's slightly chocolaty/coffee taste. It would go very good with a satisfying meal. Consistent color all the way around, top to bottom. It is only served in the tap room in 10 ounce glasses. It's higher alcoholic content make it a commodity which cannot be sold in larger volume pints.

Very, very tasty!

I've been on a Double Imperial IPA kick over the last few months and I have to share that this DIIPA has become my latest go-to brew. "Sucks" is great. Hopslam's a no-brainer, too, but I'll take Rampage over Hercules or Ruination any day, and I appreciate that I don't have to wait-til-next-year to find it. This thing is loaded with citrus and pine with no off notes to this tasters palate. At $8 a bomber it's fairly priced, as well. Looking forward to finding it on tap someday.

Picked up a 22oz bomber from BevMo in Point Loma and poured it into an "Old Speckled Hen" pint glass.

A: Pours a clean golden/light honey hue with a fat white head that dissipates slowly leaving solid lace in my glass from start to finish.

S: Big citrus hop upfront with a good amount of earthy pine, tropical fruit, salty biscuit, sweet malt and fresh grain.

T: On point with the nose but even more prevalent hop with a big citrus bight, earthy grains, fresh baked bread, carmel malt with just a slight hint of booze at the very end - extremely tasty and well balanced.

M: Medium-bodied, well carbonated with a good amount of bitterness, extremely dry with only a hint of booze at the end(where they hiding all that alcohol ???).

D: Wow - for the style the drinkability is absolutely ridiculous and very friendly. Could pound a few of these in a single sitting - no worries!

Pours a clear yellow with a huge head. The aroma blasts out of the glass with a vast blast of musky rosemary. The gal or follows, with an intense herbal blast, rosemary and sage, with a savory hop afterburn and a crisp light malt backbone. The finish is dry and boost. Very tasty but intense.

The smell is the familiar california pine hops with a little fruit mixed in. Very pleasant.

Slight but not overwhelming alcohol mouthfeel. Hop flavor is pretty good. Could use a little something else to make it outstanding.

I would definitely recommend it if you like DIPAs.
