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.

Brentv (462) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2014
From bomber. Pours a dark golden with a white head. Overflowed on opening. Big pine citrus aroma with a similar taste. Notably bitter. Dry. Bitter finish. Nice flavor, but would prefer a little more sweetness.

Lore (1389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 3, 2014
darker golden colour, huge, yellowish, creamy head, which lasts for several minutes; marvellous aroma of resiny-citrusy-tropical fruity hops and some biscuit; brilliant bittersweet taste with pine resin, intensive tropical fruits, maltyness and some spicy alcohol - surprisingly intensive malty sweetness can be felt first (together with of course the hops), which hand over the place to the devastating bitterness; amazing IIPA! Who am I to find even a slight mistake in it!?

PapaVillum (605) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2014
1 pint/6 ounces/66 cl?, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 3. oktober 2014. Orange/gylden og ufiltreret amerikansk dIPA med højt fint-boblende skum på 6-7 cm. Øllets delikate aroma rummer humle, blomst, citrus, alkohol, appelsin, gran og skunky. Smagen er virkelig intens med en fantastisk balance mellem sødme og bitterhed. Masser af krop og dybde. Smagen er meget homogen, men slutter ekstra bittert af, hvor vi lige strejfer det beske i bitterhumlen. Virkelig rar mundfølelse med en fin karbonering under medium, og alligevel frisk nok til at holde sanserne og svælget tændt. God lang eftersmag trods det bratte og halvtørre i ganen og svælget. Min 2. smagning af denne øl, og glæden ved at bedømme den er bare endnu større denne gang - en stor nydelse!

"bitter orange is the story here. in the nose and in the flavor. not that well balanced, whixh is quite alright with me. for now, i actually like their ipa (my favorite at 4.5) and the winter yulesmith better, but i’ve had those fresh, and this beer was brewed for july and sampled 11/4. Fresh, gotta bump it up a tenth. Great brew."

Extremely well balanced. Perfect body, carbonatation and palate. No excessive bitterness, malts or citrous. Uau!

manuelMTL (224) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour is clear golden orange with thin pale head. Aroma is grassy and earthy with some light citrus notes. A light caramel-chocolate note comes with the sweetness of the malts. Taste is resinous bitterness with light chocolate notes. Some citrussy flavors too. Good DIPA!

Swaroga (1663) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2014
Butelka 66cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor jasnej pomarańczy, jest delikatnie zamglone z widocznymi bąbelkami. Piana piwa jest duża o kolorze białym. NOS : piwo ma dominujące nuty skórki cytryny, żywicy, tarty i alkoholu. Po wstrząśnięciu cierpkie nuty skórki cytrusów się wyostrzają. Ogólnie aromaty są intensywne ale bez większych komplikacji. USTA : piwo ma zaskakująco mocne nasycenie jak na "amerykana". Tłuste o konsystencji pełnego mleka. Piwo jest intensywne. Nuty słodowe zapewniają solidne tło dla całkiem mocnych estrów, cierpkich nutek skórek cytrusów. Żywica i alkohol potęgują uczucie gorzkości, która umiarkowanie zalega. Posmak jest gorzki i cierpki. ODCZUCIA : przyzwyczaiłem się, że piwa tego browaru są referencją w każdym stylu. Można by powiedzieć szlachetne. Jeszcze nie piłem przeciętnego piwa od AleSmith. Ta IIPA nie jest najlepszą jaka piłem ale pomiędzy całą resztą pretendentów o tytuł króla tego stylu, ta przynajmniej uchowała swój specyficzny, cierpki i estrowy charakter. Super. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +2
