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.

brokensail (13201) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: Hazy pale gold/yellow color with one finger of fluffy white head. S: Citrus hops (mostly grapefruit and some lemon) and pineapple. A fruity sweetness. T: Grapefruit twang, pineapple, a nice bitterness but it certainly doesn’t stick around long. M: Nice medium body, slick mouthfeel. D: Great fruit character, which I wasn’t expecting. A most tasty beverage.

Koelschtrinker (12638) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Sehr süßer und intensiver Hopfenantrunk. Die Süße verschwindet schnell und macht dunklen Bitternoten Platz. Trotz der starken Hopfennoten wirkt das Bier süffig; die Würzigkeit nimmt zu. Wenig alkoholisch, breit hopfig, dabei bleibt eine gewisse Trockenheit nicht aus. Vergleichsweise wenig bitterer Abgang mit intensiver und runder Hopfigkeit – blumig, etwas nach Apfel und Melone. Kann begeistern! 12/12/12/13/9/13

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Amber gold color with a decent off-white head. Lots of resin and floral/grapefruit hop backed by a dose of malty sweetness. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is hop - mostly grapefruit over malty sugar. Finish is bitter and dry, but there’s enough backbone to make this a really enjoyable drink. Quenching? Kind of. Refreshing? Yep.
