From BeerAdvocate Magazine #80 (Sep 2013):

This brawny DIPA boasts 105 IBUs—whatever. It is really about the whole-hop character here, from bitterness to flavor and even the intense aroma; extremely hoppy all around, but still balanced. More than enough to sate any hophead’s fix.

STYLE: American Double IPA
ABV: 9.1%
AVAILABILITY: Rotating

LOOK: Thin lacing, clear bronze hue

SMELL: Citrus explosion, heavy rind, minty, piney, alcohol, nutty grain, yeast, sweet resin

TASTE: Biting hop bitterness, pomelo rind, pipe tobacco, big alcoholic warmth, peppery, Grape-Nuts, faint breadiness, smooth, semi-creamy, spicy; bitter, drying finish

Semi-deep gold in color with a nose strong of hops and citrus. Balance is quite good even with the biting hop bitterness that this DIPA has. Alcohol is def present and shows its head throughout the drinking process. Overall, a big can full of biting hops, Love it !!
