BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Elevation - E3

Craving something with bold hops and high ABV? Endpoint (E3) is your beer. Single hopped with tons of summit hops, this beer is a great example of how complex a single-hopped beer can be. Summit hops are extremely diverse containing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and sweet onion. Our brewers are careful to add the hops at specific times in the boil to bring out each unique flavor. What started as a challenge to make a “hop bomb” has turned into a hop-lover’s dream. Get this year-round beer on draft or in cans.

100+ IBU

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):

LOOK: Hazed peachy amber, good froth

SMELL: Super dank, pomelos, star fruit, fresh grass, estery alcohol

TASTE: Smooth, orangey, hemp seeds, semi-chewy, spicy alcohol, floral, very bitter, tropical fruit, yeast, warming, juicy, biscuity, nutty grain, long hop sharpness; semidry, bitter finish

Chalk this one up to another brewer trying to boast 100-plus IBUs. We thought this phase of craft beer was over. Not exactly balanced at all here, but we are sure that wasn’t the brewer’s intention anyway. Somewhat drinkable and more or less of palate destroyer. Fun to drink? Yes.

12 oz can. Pours hazy copper orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is dank piney summit hops with some onion.

The flavor is a little sweet crystal malt with a big piney bitter finish. I do get some onion from the summit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is slightly watery.

Overall, I've had this a few times and the summit hops can be a bit hit or miss. They can be a bit onioney at times. If not, this is really nice. Reminds me of Gubna - maybe a little more reserved other than alcohol.

pours murky and clouded, leaves respectable low sheeting.

oily hop nose

Hoppy but not overly bitter, soft and ripe fruit notes..tasty and dangerously drinkable at over 11%

12oz can served chilled into a shaker pint glass.

E3 is a very hazy yellow-orange color and semi-opaque because of all of the hop pollen. It has a thin layer of white head and leaves nice lacing as it settles.

Aroma is very hoppy but maybe not triple IPA hoppy. Nice grapefruit and other citrus along with that signature simcoe character.

Flavor is sweet up front leading to massive hop flavor and a big hit of bitterness. Again, maybe not triple IPA hoppy but, then again, maybe it's just a bit better balanced than I expected. It has a huge malt bill that lends sweetness and body and also helps to mellow out the bushels of hops that were likely used.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carbonation level which works well with the high alcohol. Definately a song beer but never hot.

Overall an impressive large IPA. To what degree may be a matter of opinion.

Wife and I were on a trip to Denver. This was a pretty chill/good stop along the way, but of the beers the E3 stood out.
Look: copper, good grip to the glass
Smell: Citrus, hoppy, not too boozy
Taste: Pretty good IIIPA. Smooth and with a punch that isnt too boozy
Feel: Full and Balanced.
Overall: Good beer, I would have it again but wouldnt go out of my way for it.

Pours an effervescent honey color with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. Great lacing & slightly above average head retention

S: Breadyness, faint citrus notes

T: Pears, breadyness, faint grapefruit & leafy hops, plus cattyness up front. Grapefruit, a little pear, & dryness, grassyness & leafy hops too as this warms, plus a little bready sweetness. Finishes dry, grassy, leafy with pears & woody hops

MF: Medium body, moderate carbonation

An alright DIPA, was hoping for better

Yep, you guessed it. This beer was given to me by the previous reviewer, woodychandler. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, citrus, some malts. Taste is bitter up front, followed by a good malt balance, some citrus, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall be careful with this one, it is way to smooth and drinkable for 11% abv.

12 FL OZ can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a murky amber color with burnt orange highlights. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves a little lacing.

It has a citrus and catty aroma.

The flavor is citrus without a lot of bitterness. I get a little catty flavor and some sweetness.

It is thick and syrupy with low carbonation.

This is a solid TIPA. The viscosity reminds me of Devil Dancer. The flavor is better though. The abv will get you where you need to go.
