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

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head - nice. Aroma of resin, pineapple, pine and a thick sweetness, like honey or corn syrup. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong resinous flavour with some pine and deep grapefruity malt noticeable coupled with the rich sweetness that lingers. Aftertaste shows mostly malt and sweetness, with a hint of very resinous hoppiness and a prolonged bitterness. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA with perhaps too much bitterness or depth and not enough hoppiness and balance between the hops and malt. Nice to try, but not my favourite. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Washington on 20-May-2013.

Oscbert (1005) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
~Strong hop aroma of citrus lemon, orange, and grapefruit with piney and floral notes. Bready biscuity malt character. ~Pours a hazy yellowish orange color with big long lasting fluffy white head. ~Surprisngly malty bready flavor up front and throughout with a huge blast of citrusy and piney malts. ~Heavy bodied, with medium low CO2, creamy, long lasting hop bitterness. ~Enjoyable beer. Not really a fan of this style as they tend to be too sweet in attempt to balance out large hop dosing. This is one of the better ones that i’ve had. Doesn’t give me a stomach ache.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2013
355 ml bottle. 4258/9. BB 2/9/14. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear golden amber colour with an average sized foamy off-white head. The aroma is very nice with fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness and some maltiness. Balanced it seems to be. Let’s see. The flavour is rather nice and balanced. There’s piney and resiny hops but not that overwhelming. Biscuit maltiness and moderate sweetness. The bitterness is balanced. Enjoyable.
