Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
Denver Jackhammer relentlessly pounds out massive hop aromas and flavors. A light base of American 2-row malt paves the way for a foundation of Chinook, Summit, Warrior, Simcoe, Columbus, Citra, and Amarillo hops. Double dry hopping with Simcoe, Citra, Centennial and Chinook will bulldoze your olfactory senses with aromas of fresh resin, bright tangerines, and herbal dankness.

I tried the Denver Jackhammer at the brewery. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a lace. The scent was citrus and pine. The taste followed the scent but also had a boozy base. The Mouthfeel was fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a big beer.

Oh my...this beer definitely lives up to the name of "Jackhammer." Medium pale body which is vet hazy, aroma is a blast of fresh pine, some citrus and a lot of hop bitterness. Flavor is a bit in the boozy and bitter side...almost a bit too much I dare say, but a hop heads dream. Big beer.

A veritable hop-bomb. Not bitter, but so well blended there's no way to place a key flavor aspect. Still, the brew masterfully crafted, with an adequate malt-backbone showcasing its tasty hop profile.
