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.

ChifNerdAles (2) - napa, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015 does not count
Bottle at home. Pours the usual light gold ipa color very light head. The aroma is all orange candy and a slight grassy note. The sweet malt flavor is nice accommodated by sugar covered oranges and tangerines that falls off instantly to a bitter palate cleansing finish. A delicious San Diego style Imperial IPA. Enjoy!!!!

commonmac (762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Half pint pour. Unfiltered golden orange with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is heavy on bright citrus primarily orange and grapefruit. Taste is incredibly smooth and has the well balanced flavors of the best double IPAs. Good bite and healthy alcohol kick. Citrus and tropical fruit are prevalent with the oily, piney hop resin featured in the aftertaste. Hard to beat this one. Very enjoyable.

Taste: Soft, smooth taste of orange, pine, resin, grapefruit and honey.
Body: Full body. Thick and creamy. Complex structure. A great bitterness at the end. Medium to low, soft carbonation.

This is an outstanding beer! I’m so glad I got hold of this. Really good!

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Kind of creamy honey smell. The taste has a body that combines with the hops to a sweetish taste. A little too bitter tart to be balanced. Aggressive feeling that stays in the aftertaste. Not that good.
