Notes: Our flagship IPA features six hop varietals and a blend of spelt, oat and wheat. A late hop addition of Mosaic, Falconer’s Flight, Ella, and Amarillo delivers a notable citrus and tropical fruit finish.

Poured a cloudy orange-gold body with one-finger head with some lace patches down the glass. The beer has an aroma of earthy and citric hops along with hints of grapefruit. Smooth, dry, crisp, earthy, has a mild sweetness of grapefruit underneath that hops and there is a dry finish in this medium-bodied beer that is easy to drink.

16oz can

haze, pine, pine tar, sweet and malty... but with enough hop bitterness and alcohol bite to offset the sweet malt

I like this one but it doesn't do much to stand out

Still my favorite breakfast beer after exercising! Always two - one not enough. Too malty for later in the day. Lover of pine resin beers - this has some.

Are you kidding me? Really, guys, is this what we've come to? One reviewer actually said this has an bitter bite? Have you ever had an bitter beer? Oh my goodness ... while I did enjoy Doomsauce was it Fall of 2019? Yes. This beer fucking stinks, like every other horrible NE IPA genre.

Looks boring, smells and tastes actually like an boring MALT bomb. I will have to check the date. Drinkable? Sure, 16 oz equates to an 10% ABV beer. Hops? Please add. Bitterness? Please add. Bite? Are you fucking kidding me? Go back to brewing school, or just make Doomsauce again. What a waste of time. X5k, out.

Pours a hazy gold. Tropical hop aroma. Smooth hop body. Tropical flavor. Not to strong. Mild malt finish. Pretty good. You can taste the alcohol. Here comes the boom. Ready or not. How you like me now?

Poured from a tall boy can into a pint glass showed off an awesome fluffy white head that left a great lace that hung on as I sampled, aroma was peppery citrus with a slight funk. The dank pith hits the taste buds heavy with a thick tang you’d want in a Double IPA, the flavor hangs nicely between sips. A medium heavy mouthfeel is perfect for the style and reminds you with each drink why you pick this type of brew, great example of a DIPA and its great that it’s in a pint can. My Wife picked out some beers for a Christmas gift and did very well to pick some up some brews I can’t buy here in Nebraska, always enjoyable to try new Breweries.
