Notes / Commercial Description:
Clean this mess up or else we'll all end up in jail...those test tubes and the scale...just get 'em all outta here..." He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the BIG brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant craft beer made here. But wrong he was. The New Brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the mountain of extracts will replace the mountain of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber served in an oversized wineglass.

pours a bright, golden amber tone with a finger and half creamy beige head; excellent retention and great lacing all over the place. gorgeous beer. well done.

vibrant, aromatic nose is rife with citrus (notably grapefruit) and pine. not much of a malt presence at all. flavor delivers the promise of the nose: tons of citrus and pine, with pine opening up more mid-palate; a hoppy bitterness persists through the finish. a touch of sweet malt evident in the background. a very drinkable, tasty DIPA. medium-plus bodied on the palate with adequate carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear dark golden color with a good head that fades to decent lacing.

S: Aroma of pine, lots of pine, with a bit of citrus and malt sweetness in the background.

T: taste follows the aroma piney/citrus bite up front with just a bit of malt sweetness. The bitterness leads to a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and well balanced. No hint of the 8% ABV.

O: great beer for the style. This is what the world of IPA's is all about.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Golden yellow, moderate internal carbonation, slightly hazy, pours a very light foamy head

S: Very fragrant, heavy citrus and tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, even some pine notes

T: Incredibly flavorful (but at 102 ibu's it's no surprise), reminiscent of the nose, citrus and tropical fruits dominate with some herbal/pine elements, bitter, but a nice balance

M: Quite bitter but still smooth, heavy citrus/pine aftertaste, a bit drying on the palate, but is to be expected

O: A powerful ipa, fragrant and smooth, definitely one to be tried by any lover of hops

Fom a 22oz bomber in a room temp pint glass.

A- clear golden-light orange color with a mega three-finger head and lots of sticky lacing.

S- citrus and pine hops battle to the finish. Dry and oily resin aroma as well.

T-Liqiud pine hops cascade accross the palate to start. Smooth citrus hop flavors follow. A dry hop bitterness finish. Yummy.

M- medium, with decent carbonation. Slightly oily and dry. I thought that it may be thicker.

O- 102 I.B.U. for U is BEEE-U-T-FULL!!
This is agood looking,tasting, and smelling beer that hides it's 8.0% abv with aroma and flavor. A drinkable winner.
