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.

Bottle 22 oz. Dark amber color wiyh a medium head that diminished slowly. Good hoppy citrus aroma. Medium to full body with complex dry texture. Full flavor of malt, citrus and a long hoppy alcohol finish. Another AleSmith masterpiece.

Christian (11981) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2008
Hazy orange with a lasting off-white head. Sweet american hop aroma, peach, pine, tea and roses. Dry hoppy flavour with floral hop and some caramel malty notes. Burning hot alcohol is not so good, but the long hoppy aftertaste is good.

Bomber poured a clear copper orange with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, light citrus and pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, some vanilla, earthy, orange, a hint of grapefruit and some light pine notes with a lingering moderately bitter finish. Avery tasty and well balanced DIPA.

Pinball (11704) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2009
Thanks to rasmus B for picking this one up for me. pours a clear orange with a smooth lacing thick offwhite head. looks very good. aroma can be sensed 30cms awaay from the glass i just poured. strong flowery hoppy aroma, delicate, getting your attention. getting closer to the glass i get a near perfect strong pine and flowery hops combination with some malty sweetness thrown in. it could be a little stronger but what we have is hard to improve on. flavor is based in sweet malts, and with lots of hops added, bitter pine and faint grape dominates, the flowery hops are way in the background. flavor is more extreme hoppy than aroma, but stil very drinkable. In a way a "simple" Double IPA, but extremely well crafted and balanced.

Bottle. [thank you, Dunk]
Pours a light muddy orange amber with a beautiful, staying, off-white head. Fine lacings. Aroma is very hoppy, some clear apricot, grapefruit, pepper and pine. Wonderful creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, super hoppiness, some biscuity malts and subdued caramel. Lovely, very long, dry, bitter, fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Perhaps a touch too vinious, but still wonderful.
