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.

Pours a clear copper orange with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is floral hops, citrus, some pine and a faint bit of sweet malt. Flavors are grassy floral hops with some alcohol. Smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Well balanced throughout. A great DIPA. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Pours clear golden color, with stable foamy white head. Visually medium carbonation. Aroma: intense aroma of hops, which takes on pine, mango, pinneapple, grapefruit and tangerine, with malt aroma in the background, with biscuit and toffee like character. Flavor: intense hop flavor, which takes on grapefruit, pinneapple, tangerine, oranges, mango and pine, which is perfectly balanced with malt flavor, with toffee like character. Malt sweetness is medium to moderate high, hop bitterness is high. Mouthfeel: as I said, the ingrediends are almost perfectly balanced, taste is firstly sweet, with bitter, slightly spicy, dry finish, which lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture is silky soft, carbonation is medium. Alcohol warmth is obvious, but gentle. Amazing!

coachd (436) - Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Great honey-malt and earthy grapefruit hop aroma that is also slightly spicy. Cloudy burnt orange color with a soap colored tuft of foam. Tastes malty and earthy with a hop bite at the end that never turns bitter. Good smooth palate. Overall not as good as their winter version but still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sehr süßes DIPA, viel Mango, Papaya, wenig Bittere. ZUDEM grapefruit, Madarine. Insgesamt ein sehr überzeugendes DIPA, aber das Firetone Walker bleibt das bessere DIPA. Dennoch extrem süffig, zudem LECKER.

Desverger (5780) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard shared with the in-laws Hammel, DK - pours a nice vibrant orange colour with healthy medium sized white head and lacing. Aroma and taste is plethora of tropical fruits, big grapefruit, mango and peachy notes, a splash of citrus tangerine and lemon across the palate, tempered with a sweet caramel malty backbone, great brew this. Lovely.

heman (401) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Aromat chmielowy, zielona trawa i cytrusy. W smaku początkowa lekka biszkoptowa słodycz szybko przykrywana jest bardzo wysoką i zalegającą goryczką. Trawiaste i tytoniowe w posmaku. Niezbalansowane.
