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

Loved this beer! It's sweet from the high ABV (11%) but still insanely hoppy (100+ IBUs!) giving it an amazing and complex combination of flavors for a bitter-lover. My Mom thought it tasted like the worst medicine she'd ever had, so be warned; the bitterness packs a punch. I absolutely loved it!

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.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a deep golden with a subtle haze; creamy white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are subtle, but nice. I feel like I'm picking up a nice amount of citra hops. Lots of sweet orange along with some sweet malts. The flavors follow the nose perfectly. Lots of orange and citrus. Solid malt backbone blends perfectly with the hops. The malts don't come off as overwhelming at all. It's slightly spicy in the finish with some hints of black pepper and possibly some rye. Mild warmth in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy at all. The alcohol is actually well hidden. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's slightly fluffy and very smooth. This one is dangerously drinkable.

This is a nice "Triple IPA". It's very drinkable for a big beer. It might not be the flashiest "Triple IPA", but the craftsmanship is impressive and it's very enjoyable stuff.

Well, hello to you, Renegade Brewing. This is one fine jumbo sized AIPA.

It comes out of the can looking dangerous - like a huge IPA harboring booze. The aroma says, yup, booze. The taste says, yup, booze. Goodnight.

I might ding this for being so boozy, but the rest of the experience is big enough to support it. The hops aroma grows nicely as does whatever taste can come through the big boozy maltiness. Totally worth $3 a can. Highly recommended.

Wow! So impressed with this winner from a local brewer. Reminds me of another local IIPA, Hercules, by Great Divide.

Pours a hazy, honey like color, with a nice finger of foam.
Nose is piney, hoppy.
First hit my tongue with a malty sweetness, followed immediately with nice, strong, but not overpowering, bitterness.
Hops through to the finish, but so well balanced with the malty sweetness. This is a superior IPA.
