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.

TBone (15543) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2009
Bottled as "YuleSmith Holiday Ale" (Vasa session). Hazy orange color, huge off-white head. Strong nose of mango, rye, berries and bread. Bitter, fruity, toffee, malty flavor. There is some cracker maltyness and citrusy notes. Drinkability is nice. Could be more complex and bottle could be more fresh, but overall quite good DIPA.

brokensail (15215) - San Leandro, 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.

bhensonb (13533) - 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.
