COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

AdolfoCC (130) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 16, 2016
Servida en un Spiegalau IPA. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos naranjas a contra luz, se observa ligeramente turbia y moderada actividad de carbonatación. Corona de espuma color blanco de 3 dedos de altura, buena retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. ARROMA: se aprecian lúpulos americanos, frutal, floral y ligeramente cítrico, notas de piña, mango, predominan, atrás toronja y algunas notas ligeramente herbales. SABOR: al contrario del aroma, en paladar inicia con una explosión de amargor intenso, atrás notas herbales y resinosas del lúpulo y es lo que predomina, notas de pino, “dankness” por todas partes, atrás de eso, notas frutales y cítricas ligeras como cáscara de toronja, mango, y más atrás un ligero gusto dulce muy tenue de las maltas. Al retrogusto queda ese amargor intenso pegado al paladar sin llegar a ser agresivo. El alcohol no se siente. SENSACIÓN: Cuerpo medio con sensación oleosa, carbonatación media. RESUMEN: Una excelente representante del estilo, muy resinosa, amarga y refrescante. Muy recomendada.

Orange honey amber in color. Nice thin soapy head. Sweet tropical fruity nose... Almost like SweetTarts. Clean bitter pine and citrus flavors. Overall, a solid brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for the hook up!

DSG (11279) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of hops, "green", a bit fruity, but also a bit stale. Flavor has mild sweetish malt, "green" hops, a bit fruity, slightly stale, and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Could be fresher, but still nice. Very easy-drinking for an 8% Double IPA.

Nische (1763) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2016
Bottle at Bishops Vasagatan. Pours slightly hazy amber with white head. PIney aroma and taste with lemon zest, grapefruit, peach and some herbal grass. A little bit of mellow hops here, but you can tell it’s a great beer when fresh.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a decent white head. Orange and pine hop aromas. Medium, slightly creamy body with lots of dank orange and pine hops, with some caramel. Not hugely bitter despite the hoppiness. Damn good though.

ZodiacM (721) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Een troebel oranjegeel bier met bescheiden schuimkraag. Aromas van tropisch fruit mout en hop. Smaak is overweldigend: zoet-bitter, mout, hop en heel veel fruit, mango, grapefruit, eindigend in een heerlijke bittere zest-achtige afdronk. Wow, een van de betere imp. IPA’s die ik heb gedronken!
