Welcome to the holidays! Double Red IPA arrives each year as the weather turns cool and our cravings for winter warmers begin. This Imperial Red Ale has an intense hop aroma with well-balanced caramel malt sweetness. The intense American hoppiness builds on the substantial malt backbone to deliver a full-flavored beer with a ton of complexity.

Bottle from Malting pot. Pours beautiful dark red with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma ripe strawberries. Taste follows, gradually adding caramel notes mingled with hoppy bitterness. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bue à la pression. Enorme ! Plein d’armes dans cette magnifique IPA. Pointe de fruits jaunes, passion, réglisse, caramel, céréales. Le tout magnifiquement équilibré avec un gros houblonnage. Parfait.

sjogro (2501) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2016
Tap at Klooster. Hazy warm brown amber with offwhite head. Smells of dried fruit. Caramel, toffee and marijuana-like hops up front, oatmeal, malty, dried fruit, licorice, resin, faint note of coffee as well. Medium sweet, under medium bitter. Smooth full, oily body, sweet at the core and bitter at the edges. A little sherrylike boozy note pops up from time to time. Fizzy sparkly mild carbonation. Great stuff.
