COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Double IPA finishes at 8.25% ABV, and has a bitter bite at over 100 IBUs. As far as the dominant hop goes, three pounds of Centennial hops per barrel give our double IPA a slightly punishing yet entirely pleasing bitterness that dances on the tongue.

Pours a dark golden to orange color with very little head. Aroma was earthy hay and simple for an IPA. Taste was very similar with the aroma followed by alcohol at the end. An earthy IPA with no hints of any sweet fruits. A nice mild mouthfeel. Overal, an ok average beer. Was hoping for more.

Tap. Cloudy dark orange pour with good lacing. Smells of hops. Tastes like grapefruit juice. Very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3639) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2012
This blew me away. What a great beer. Hazy amber with a white head. Candy floral aroma--simple awesome. Flavor gives way to grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and didn’t finish too bitter. Not a perfect palate but balanced on the palate nonetheless. I bought two bottles--we’ll see if they hold up to the standard set by the tap version. Wow. (tap at Old Fashioned, Madison)

Bottle. Pours deep reddish orange, with creamy off-white head. Sticky lacing. Big caramel malts up front, biscuity mouthfeel, bright citrus and moderate bitterness. Lingering finish of the back of the tongue. Hides the ABV well. Really solid.

Thirsty Troll Beer Fest. Pour is deep orange/red amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows orange zest, apricot, pineapple, and light florals. Flavor shows the same with a big caramel backbone and additional notes of grapefruit and pine. Overall body is moderate, somewhat sweet, and finishes with moderate bitterness.

12 oz. bottle from stevemastny- thanks again, Steve! Pours a cloudy amber color with visible sediment at the bottom of the glass and a small, lasting off-white head that leaves some lace. Aroma of caramel malts, resinous hops, toasted sugar, grass, and straw. Flavor of caramel malts, syrup, citrusy hops, brown sugar, molasses, resin, and tropical fruits. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, sticky mouthfeel. Good DIPA.

pours a cloudy deep orange amber with a thick head that leaves a nice lacing. aroma is citrus, resin, pinewood. Sweet malt backbone with a hoppiness that attacks and linger. This beer is all about bitterness. Mission accomplished.

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Sturdy two finger head, lasting with very good lacing, light tan in color. Hazy, copper color. Fat hoppy nose, oranges and resin, hint of alcohol. Body is med/full, really oily on the palate, chewy, grainy. Malts are a bit sweet for me but seem to be balanced by the heavy hopping. Caramel malts, piney citrusy and earthy hops, lil wood and mint. Lightly sweet finish, light fruit and citrus. Malts over ride the hops in the finish making them less punishing,,, unfortunately. Still a very solid DIPA. Bottle from ughsmash! Thanks much buddy!
