COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On draft, Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA. served in a snifter glass. Pours orange gold, two finger off white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit and tangerine. Taste is assertively bitter balanced with caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, resin but smooth mouth feel. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Tasting notes of red grapefruit, tangelos, spruce, caramel, resin and orange peel. Wow, I really enjoyed this offering! Very nice, punchy DIPA.

65cl bottle, served in Irish Pint. Pours golden orangish with a big white frothy head. Caramel aroma, citrus and tropical fruits. As for flavour, a lot of caramel with a slight fruity touch...fresh hops basically. Round on the palate. Full bodied, perfect carbonation. Nice, not outstanding though. At least once a year it is not a bad thing to have a fresh hop beer.

On tap. Pours a clear orange yellow with a nice thin head and laces well. Monster citrus nose, with oranges and grapefruit standing out to me. Very crisp attack, alcohol is hidden well, malts are present giving a bit of sweetness to the hop bitterness. long dry finish.

Flaska. Här pratar vi kvalitet. Vilka trevliga dofter av hav tång vått gräs samt toner av gödsel. Så jäkla balanserad o så alla smaker som man vill ha. Eftersmaken är något man vill ens barn ska uppleva.

Tap. Citrus, pine, soap, grapefruit, herb, honey. Big IIPA but smooth. Full body with a great balance of syrupy sweetness, bitterness, carbonation and acidity. Long finish

tricksta_p (1951) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
Old bottle, aged almost a year. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, malt, caramel, pine, floral notes, tea, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a long bitter finish. Thick and juicy. Massive DIPA. Hope to try a fresher bottle one day, it should be a lot better.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Nästan ett år gammal. Smak och doft av humle, kolaremmar, karamell, torkad frukt. Rund och len, lagom sötma, fin balans mellan smakerna, beska med smak av grapefrukt, citrussskal och toner av tall. Mycket gott!

DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2015
22oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Pours with a nice, bigger creamy thick white head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Fantastic big resiny citrusy and piney hop. Nice sort of biscuity bready malt, slightly cake-like. Medium to bigger body. Super-smooth, kind of creamy texture. Lightly slick. Lighter carbonation. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Bit of a bigger malt component, but it’s not bothersome, pretty pleasant. Just a touch of a sweet, sort of yeasty bite at the end. Well balanced, tasty IPA. Very nice to enjoy with my sandwich.

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Nästan ett år gammal. Ändå väldigt bra även om humlen inte är på tårna. Istället får den rejäla maltkroppen mer fokus. Stora söta smaker av kolaremmar, karamell, apelsin, grape, tangerine, citrusmarmelad, karamellkok, kåda. Maffigt. Måttlig beska. Kanske är största problemet med åldern att beskan tonats ned och att det blir lite väl söt.
