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

Nice in the hops with a bit of ripe fruits background. What kills this one is that strong and tasteable alcohol background which lets the beer end quite skunky. Average brew.

Bitter beer. Tasty. Orange peels and grapefruit. Draft at green lady. Hoppy earthy gummy taste.

McTapps (3607) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light amber colour with low head and crisp body. Aroma of hops, caramel, malt and mild spices. Taste of fresh hops, barley,cake, spruce, spices and bread. Dry-bitter finish. Quite nice but nothing special.

L’imperial ipa che vorresti trovare sempre: ben bilanciata tra lo sfondo maltato e caramellato e l’intenso aroma dei luppoli, con note fruttate leggermente dolci, presenza alcolica ben celata. Buonissima!

elbernays (407) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 6, 2014
Glass on tap in against the grain. Pours cloudy amber. Nice froth head. Looks good. Nose is grass, pine, spruce, slight cat piss. Grapefruit flavour, hop with a short bitterness and then the robust sweet malts fight through. Caramel sweet releases as it warms to leave a treacle aftertaste. Full body. Fizzy on initial sip but flattens on palette. Quite complex, enjoyable.

Fles bij de drinks & gifts vandaan, koperoranje met een volle fijne witte schuimkraag. Geur is tropisch fruit met mango, cantaloupe en abrikoos. Smaak begint zoetig en plakkend met wederom de fruittonen maar ook iets van gist en vormt geleidelijk om naar een volle bittere afdronk met een trekkend mondgevoel tonen van pine komen dan naar voren, nasmaak staat als een huis, body is mooi vol. Aanrader als je van een dipa houdt, biertje om goed voor te gaan zitten en genieten.

mkel07 (3106) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
355ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Big tongue numbing beer that shocks the palate with hops. Enjoyable though.

ElDesmadre (1495) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pine and pink grapefruit over a biscuity malt base. Yes, this one is both full of malt and of hops. Some almond partly mingling with a booziness - this spoils the whole picture a bit. The taste is sweetish, the finish warming with a surprisingly restrained bitterness. The mouthfeel is thisk and oily, yes, even fatty I would say. And this oiliness is a bit too much, as it seems to dampen the flavour. The aroma shows that both hops and malts have big potential in here but it never shows in the flavour due to the thick oiliness. Altogether it means that the beer disappoints.

Frovigalning (2928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at Bishops Arms Örebro. Hoppy smell with primarily grapefruit but also other citrus aromas. Powerfull bitterness. Allot of grape peels in the taste. Slightly rough mouthfeel. Long aftertaste and lingering bitterness.
