Every year we anxiously await the warmer months to unleash this Double IPA, the summer edition of our YuleSmith seasonals. The flavor imparts orange, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes with earthy, spicy, and resinous pine undertones. A sturdy malt backbone balances out the profound hop bitterness to create a refreshingly assertive and vibrant beer that offers an unapologetically bold expression of fresh American hops.

0.75l bottle. Courtesy of Lore, thanks for sharing. Slightly hazy golden body, lobg lasting white head. Aroma of biscuit, honey, hop resin, pine, peach and citruses. Taste of caramel, honey, pine, grass and grapefruit. Hoppy, but not aggressively bitter. At the same time sweet, but not cloying. Awesome beer.

Fashawn (459) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 13, 2015
Aroma verde, pieno di erba, leggermente resinoso e con diversi agrumi, leggerissimo nocciolo di pesca acerbo. Leggermente velata, giallo oro con schiuma bianca fine è persistente, all’imbocco presenta un po ’ di frutta dolce, qualche pesca e una suggestione tropicale, agrumi e tanto amaro agrumato. Liscia al palato, abbastanza scorrevole e leggera ma mai acquosa. Buona, ottima, si lascia bere abbastanza bene

Fatehunter (1762) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is bright with tropical fruits: pineapple and mango. The taste is moderate to strong bitterness right off the bat, then mellows to the end. A little sweet finish. The texture is thicker. Quite enjoyable.

The best dipa I’ve ever had. And definitely one of the best beers overall one has ever tasted. Absolutely brilliant. Nice thick 2 finger head. Very versatile aroma and taste. This beer has everything. Would be interested to know, how much you have to pay for this in California. I paid 12,95 euros for this 0,65l bottle in Europe.

Vells (1092) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - AUG 28, 2015
At first it starts as best DIPA I ever had.. after half of glass is gone, it becomes more common, but still very enjoyable. Quite intense maltiness, caramel, even bit honeyish, powerful hop combo gives peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon, pine. Moderate sweetness with lasting bitterness and bittersweet finish. Feels very silky smooth and enjoyable.
