Notes: This Hop Monster uses multiple kettle hop additions with the technique of doubling the hop amount each addition (exponentially). Add in the hop back and the continuous dr- hopping and your starting to get the picture. The beer is finished off with a "body-bag" sized hop-bag full of hop cones and oak chips. There it ages and mellows, disguising the alcohol content for a double strong, incredibly hoppy, yet drinkable beer.

From a month-old pint can, pours a very clear darkish-gold. Small white head with little lacing, as you'd expect from this ABV. Smell and taste are classic West Coast IPA, with pine and honey malt in balance. Good hit of bitterness in the finish. No trace of alcohol, medium feel. Great beer.

Notes from 12/20/2019

On tap in a half pint snifter at The Draft House Austin Texas.
Look is golden and a little cloudy. There is almost no head because the staff pour carefully to the brim to give you more beer. 4.25
Smell is hops, citrus, stone fruit, and a little spice. 4.00
Taste is mango, citrus, alcohol, some malt, pine, and moderate bitterness. 4.5
Feel is medium and a little slick. 4.5
Overall it is a big IPA with a lot going on. It's too much for me to drink it offten but it is a great beer. 4.5

On tap at SD Taproom. Pours a slightly hazy golden with decent off white head. Aroma sweet citrus with some pineapple and ample hoppy pine. Taste is sweet malty with pine, citrus, some peach - resinous hoppy pine bitterness hits at the back end after swallow. Alcohol is well hidden in this full bodied slightly oily sweet but pleasantly bitter monster IPA. Absolutely great.

Bottle at RBSG. Light haze, golden body, substantial head. Aroma is equal parts hops and citrus. Nice feel and consistency, hops get more astringent on the palate. Citrus finish with a bit of warmth.
