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

FatPhil (13611) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 23, 2016
35ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Orange, brief head. Extremely soapy hop aroma, nothing else pushes past that. Taste at least has a hint of sweet malts, but the aggressive hops have again pushed themeselves to the front. Tons of citrus, lots of orange zest, and mixed peel. Quickly becomes as soapy as the aroma. Aggressive, and not particularly drinkable. OK, does hide the 8% behind the monstrous onslaught of sugar and hops. The phaal of beers - you can show off by pretending to enjoy it if you like, if that makes you big. Sub-par as a drink I’d want to drink.

AdolfoCC (153) - 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.

DSG (11505) - 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.
