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

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with bitter earthy hops is pleasant enough. Taste is a mix of citrusy hops with medium level of bitterness and light grainy malt with some residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Not bad overall but malt bill is slightly off with a tad too much residual sugar notes and too much bitterness.

From the 4-pack pours a foggy glowing orange. Velvety smooth hop taste with some good bitter at the back end, easy drinking. Sticky and nice high alcohol this will be a go to.

robinvboyer (3532) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Slightly hazy orange pour, with a sticky ample off white cream colored head. This is an old school double ipa. A huge malt backbone demonstrated by ample biscuity malts and some big pine resin hops with hints of candied citrus peel. The body is a tad oily, and the carb is about what you’d expect. The finish is a little soapy and very resinous. With a medium bitterness, a nice summer sipper, not like today’s grapefruit dipa bombs, old school, and I like it.

Bottle. Grass/hay hops and orange caramel malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and intensely bitter herbal lemon peel flavor. Very harsh.

bunget (679) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear golden body, big beige head with average retention. Aroma of peaches, orange candies, acacia honey, pineapple. Taste of orange candies, bitter herbs, grapefruit zest and passion fruit. Nice one.

angel77 (1400) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Botella de 33 clima en la internacional oviedo en el momento el 4-06-2015. Color amar anaranjado álgido turbio con espuma blanca. Armas y sabores intensos afrutados y maltosos con buenos toques de lupulos entre herbaceos algo citricos y afrutados y ligeramente viejos y resinosos. Cuerpo medio con 8,7 vol que se notan desde el principio. Pasó por boca denso y pastoso con espuma. Bastante buena e intensa. Ligeros recuerdos a la G.D Hércules. Para repetir sin duda.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is intensely hoppy. Lots of peppery, grassy hops aroma with a lot of pine and resinous character. Nicely spicy in back of the piny notes. Alcohol is quite apparent as is the assertive bitterness. Nice stuff, really.
