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

Bottle. Pours very clear amber. Almost no head, but does lace. Does not have a heavy aroma, but has a very even nose. Just enough hops to make me happy and is very balanced w/ malt characters. Finishes clean and leaves you wanting more. Overall a great beer.

sulawang (1025) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Visual: Pours deep copper orange with a small but lasting foamy head, sticky lacing, lots of steady clustered streams.

Nose: peachy-grapefruity citrus hop oils. (lvl-6)-pungency - (optimal at cellar temp)

Attack: crisp, thick and smooth mouthfeel

Mid-palate: tangerine hop oils, (lvl-4-sweetness), toffee’d barley malt, subdued zingy alcohol

Finish: big-rounded orange citrusy hopped bitterness, dry grassiness, clean finish

Summary: Seemingly simple yet it’s because it is so balanced. What surprised me was how superbly sippable this was - the hops linger just long enough, without being overly harsh at any point. Very nice.

Flaska ölrepubliken, Göteborg. Smågrumlig orange vätska. Maltig doft med mycket barr, torkad frukt och druva. Kratfull smak med citrus, barr, hö och spannmål. Fin efterbeska.

Gerbeer (3128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with moderate head. Aromas of doughy malts and spicy, piney hops. Flavors of caramel, muted tropical, rubber, and resin/pine. Bitter piney finish. May be a little old but still quite nice

NordicV (1943) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
Dimmig orange öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doft av karamell, fruktighet och tallbarr. I smaken tillkommer grapefrukt och kåda i eftersmaken. Bra balans mellan sötma och beska.

kevinator (1852) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Strong dry-hopped aroma of pine, spice and some citrus. It hits all marks, honestly. Not so bitter that it masks other flavors. Some earthiness and a mild sweetness. Decent color and weight.

zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy, bright golden coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has a very rich orange marmalade and pine flavour with smooth toffee notes and more warming orange on the finish. Superb!

This beer had a lovely hop taste without a intense bite. The aroma of citrus greets you at first encounter. This beer is a delight, I’d recommend it to everyone.

Bottle.My first from this brewery. Orange and clear with a small head. Hoppy and floral with a medium body. Doesn’t taste as strong as it possibly should. Very pleasant but left me thinking why is it so highly rated?
