Notes / Commercial Description:
Not much to analyze about EGOIPA. Sometimes you just fancy a dank double IPA to sip on, so that's what we made. Multiple hops, multiple malts, multiple yeasts combined in a way to feed the dank side of our enjoyment. Drink EGOIPA because it the dankness you want.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Can dated 9/15/16 and poured into Belgian ale glass. Allowed to warm for nearly an hour per recommendation.

L: Nice 2F head with lots of sticky lacing and a ring and cap. Beer is a really nice hazy gold with orange hues, reminds me a little bit of a tequila sunrise.

S: Very ripe tropical mango and pineapple and a lot of earthy dankness.

T: Waiting for 46 degrees is the right move. Tons of very ripe tropical fruit and some citrus followed by a lot of earthy dankness and a little bit of alcohol heat (they say this is intended). Malts keep a handle on the bitterness while the hops keep the sweetness under control.

F: Medium bodied, light to medium carbonation, very good construction and balance. This is a very strong DIPA and I think Carton manages to walk the line nicely.

O: Carton generally produces very good beers, but this is a clear step up into the major leagues and worth all the critical praise I hope he gets.

We have IDIPA and EGOIPA. Dare we hope for a SUPEREGO Triple IPA?

Poured into a snifter. Canned about 6 wks ago. A hazy dark amber-orange color with a foamy off-white head. The foam settled quickly into a nice cap. Fruity aromas with pineapple, tangerine, orange, mango, and a hint of earthy hops and sweet malt. Big fruit up front on the first sip as described above, but the mid-palate brought on a big dank resiny flavor, followed by a tangerine/dank finish. Sturdy but reserved malt backbone. Fantastic beer.

It's a mighty big IPA with pine, grapefruit, tangerine, and a little white grape. The malt backbone offers a touch of toast and caramel, but this, for the most part, is a big juicy brew.

Poured 16oz can into snifter. Amber orange with a 2 finger dirty white head with sudsy lacing all over the glass. Aroma is heavy with hops and malt. Big citrus flavor that layers in some caramel malt with earthy undertones. Finish is grapefruit rind and pine sap. Feel is medium, stick and well carbonated with a biting bittersweet finish. Tasty IIPA.

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

Acquired via trade from tzieser so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, caramelized malts and citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of fruity caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a solid big 2IPA to drink for a while.

Pours a hazy golden orange with light foamy white head. Big dank aromas: mango, papaya, earthy musk, some residual citrus: pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, orange. Taste follows nose: big dank hoppiness, papaya and mango, followed by pineapple, grapefruit, orange juice finish. Appropriate carbonation, medium bodied. Overall an excellent DIPA, big, bold, dank, but not like a NE hazy. This is fairly clear, clean, thick and syrupy (for a DIPA). Drink this fresh!!!

Very smooth and hoppy. Pours cloudy amber with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy / bratsish. Feel is very nice, smooth. Taste is again hoppy but not crazy. Overall an excellent IPA

A 3 mo. Old can and it's still very dank tasting. Fresh smelling like I had fallen asleep under a field of hop vines on a frosty morn; the dew sliding across the lupulin. Funky papaya, sun drenched mangoes provide dank tropic tones. Strawberry, grape peel, jackfruit and starfruit are brighter flavors. Good spicy and earthy malt presence reminded me of a ginger cookie. My fave IPA from them.

Pours amber and hazy. You can smell the sweetness of the malt and earthy hops. Tastes like it smells, huge (but good) amount of sweetness from the malts, dark and dank, with a seriously bitter finish. Only a very slight alcohol taste - carries it well for the ABV. Feels smooth and moderately fizzy, medium body. Intense but very nicely balanced.
