COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust. Brewed with a “heelch” (that means “a lot” in Boontling) of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, our double IPA has a palate pleasing bitterness that is artfully balanced with a full-bodied malt foundation. With a deep color of polished brass and a nose that sings of pink grapefruit and redwood needles, the rich biscuit-like malt flavors are intertwined with hints of vanilla, mangoes, and peppercorns leading to a deep, warming finish.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Victory

HOPS:
Columbus, Chinook, Cascade

Bottle@homa. Hazy orange color with a lush, foamy head. Tangerine, mango, pine, honey, yeast, hints of coriander and vanilla, tons of hops. Honey sweet start, in a full body, plenty of carbs, and a dry, truly bitter, lasting finish. Excellent. One of these everyday please.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle - Bought Aug 2013; BBE undated; Drank Oct 2013 - Deep Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy (peppery) hops. Very Fruity; grapefruit and tangerine citrus, hints of tropical fruit. Malty backbone; biscuity malts, caramel. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance, particularly considering high IBUs. Bitter hoppy citrus fruity throughout; nice bitterness; not extreme. Decent DIPA!

erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 9, 2014
Golden misty body with small head. Hop forward aroma, both resin and tree as well as grapefruit hops. Clean American yeast, little sugar. Taste is juicy, hoppy, balancing bitter, tasty. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle, 11C. Clear golden amber with a large off-white head that lasts and laces quite well. Aroma of gentle grapefruit - yes, ruby grapefruit!, pine, dough, apricots. Lowish carbonation, slightly syrupy. No obvious alcohol. Mighty sweet with lots of light caramel, citrus that struggles a bit against the sweetness, pine, some twangy herbal notes that didn’t sit that well for me. Moderate bitterness.

zimbo (525) - SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Sweet penetrating hops & floral nose. Dense thick glossy off white head which forms with very little effort. Brilliant hazy golden orange glow. Fairly carbonic on the palate to start which leads to a juniper rubberish bitterness. Nice & lingering at the end but not enough core depth& strength for me.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Golden caramel thick lit haze with a split beige head. Nose is carmel soaked pine and malt, smothering hops. Sweet over bitter is the line up here. Catches of sweet minty pine and hop protected malt. Therefore, for the ABV, this thing sails aimlessly very easily. Creamy mouthfeel screams through as it warms, whipped and Brulee sweet towards the finish. Cooling salty hop bitterness on the linger. This is fairly fucking gud and discernibly drinkable.

Bottle, Good WInes and Spirits

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
On tap at Hop and Vine in north Burnaby. A medium amber beer as 4 oz sample on a 4-paddle. A hoppy beer with a strong malt note right up front with the hops. Nicely balanced, but the hops are substantially masked by the big malt component. Nice.

JohnRMurdoch (3169) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Keg @ Inn Deep. Muddy amber brown, good head. Mild pine hop aroma. Sweet flowery biscuit hop flavour. Smooth with bitter sweet aftertaste. A very well balanced quality IPA but it doesn’t look great.

A nice double. Very smooth. Aromas are dank and some sweet malts. Flavors are malty corn and resinous hops. Quite good.
