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

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Stemmed glass. The color is a hazy dark orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is pretty piney and smells a bit like wet hops. Some nice citrus flavor is the background that is quite lemony in flavor and is a bit pithy. The taste is bitter citrus hop flavor at first. There is a soft embrace of piney flavors with the hops in front and a nice malty flavor that finishes this beer off in the back. There is some interesting hits of sugary flavor that is a bit too sweet but overall the taste is really good. The feel of this beet is medium bodied with some strong hop flavor that is strong but easy to handle. It goes down well and is just the right mix for a West Coast IPA.

JackMandarin (217) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle from Bridgend Service Station, Freuchie. Pours clear. Light amber. Decent wee head with staying power. Great lacing. Aroma has lots of juicy marmalade and citrus. Matched well with resinous pine. A little floral. Some pineapple and over-ripe mango. The nose hides the alcohol well. Taste is sweet with jammy notes. Bit of brown sugar. Banana bread malt. Well played sweetness without being overwhelming. Bitterness comes through quickly but is well-balanced. Citrus flavours with grapefruit and some orange pithiness. Bittersweet finish with some dryness that plays this out well. Fairly restrained carbonation. Slick, oily mouthfeel with medium-weight. No heat from the alcohol in the tasting either. This is a very (dangerously) easy to drink DIPA with excellent balance.

Karol (827) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2016
Taster at the Alpine Brewing company pub. I can’t sense much aroma because it’s a taster and ai did not get a full glass. Golden clear color. Taste is grassy, citrus bitter hops, grapefruit, good maltiness. Well balanced. Boozy. A nice imperial IPA.

sulawang (1031) - 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.

A great dipa. Very well balanced. Bitter but also smooth. Amazing beer. Worth all the hype.

Gerbeer (3134) - 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 (1946) - 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.

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!
