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.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2010
12oz bottle. Thanks to Andrew for giving me this to try.... Pours a mostly transparent amber brown with a thin to medium soapy white head... Aroma has some faded hops to begin with, somewhat soapy, alongside sweeter caramelized notes... Semi-sweet citrusy hops in the forefront that quickly caramelize with the counteracting malts. A bit soapy through the middle and the finish. Sliver of bitterness in the finish. Thinner mouthfeel. Should have tried this earlier.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours red with nice white head, aroma is some citrus, with notes of tangerine and orange, some caramel as well. Taste is citrus, touch of metallic hops, caramel, with a fairly bitter finish. Not bad, but a bit weak and disappointing. Alcohol is hidden well.

cbfobes (2152) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle and had this on tap at Ale Asylum, pours a reddish orange color with a fluffy whtie head, aroma is of grapefruit with hops and sweet malt, the first sip is way more malty than hoppy and there is not a lot of bitterness in this brew, decent DIPA just not what I was expecting from Ale Asylum.

CanIHave4Beers (2905) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Pours an orange color with a good head and good lace. The aroma is pine and resin with some sweet florals. The flavor has a bit of onion and pine with some fruit and plenty of bitterness. There is a mild sweetness there in the finish with is pleasant at first, but I could do with out it.

Pours a murky reddish bronze color with a frothy beige head. Yummy floral hop aroma. Great balance of malts and hops, very good.

thegreenrooster (3082) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a very nice floral hop with big dose of sweet malt. Flavor is more hops with a fruit like mango hagning around in the backround. Finish is very dry with a decent hop left on the tounge after the swallow. This is a good beer to have around.

Sweet bonus courtesy of drewbeerme. 12oz bottle pours dirty copper brown with light tan head. The mild aroma lofts up soft notes of sweet malts and echoes of pine hops. The taste begins with an even mix of maltiness, crystal like malts and pine hops. The pine hops become richer and more bitter to midway and seem to gather up a brief note of citrus too. Into the finish the tasty pine hops persist with a background of malts and a touch of crystal malts and roasted malts. The more I drink the more it grows on me. Nearing the end I think I’m getting a bit of floral hops, grassiness and a touch of spicy hops that pop up about midway.
