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.

Yorker (1546) - Herning, - JAN 27, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, pine, and caramel. Flavour is pine, caramel, and citrus – with a very bitter finish.

Tonkun (1115) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2015
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 (1871) - 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 (2091) - 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 (8347) - 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 (2493) - 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.

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 (642) - 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.
