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

Unfiltered gold colour. Nose hoppy but very slight for a Double IPA. Huge hop flavour up front, lingers a bit and then sweetness from the malts comes out in the finish. Bitter hops dominate the aftertaste.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow. Aroma of malt, slightly honey-ish, and hops, citric, floral and kinda stale. Sweetish malty flavor with a bit of caramel and honey and a bitter finish with pretty stale hops. Medium-bodied. Seems past its prime.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter. Purchased this bottle @ Julio’s. A nice gold color with a thin off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is strong pine needles and pine cones. Taste has a good amount of sweet malts, caramel, and strong resin, pine cones and grapefruit. The resinous notes are a bit much for my personal tastes. The bitter pine finish lingers a bit too much for me. Not bad just really not my kind of DIPA. I need citrus with my pine. The ABV is hidden and drinks like a 6% brew… so that is a good thing.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Mostly clear amber-gold with a large lasting fluffy-foamy head. Floral bitterness, light grain, a little lactic. Taste - very nice, floral, almost perfumed bitterness, not overly alcoholic - different, but good. Light body, decent carbonation, only a medium-long finish .... pretty solid, a little citrus in the linger.

They get points for the word of the day in the title. Good aromas in this DIPA, but not in the top tier.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark orange with a medium white head on top with beautiful lacing. Aroma is tropical and citric and has some sweet caramel tones. Flavor is quite bitter with a stable malty backbone. Definitely some grapefruit and hop juice. Quite nice in balance, long, medium bitter finish. Nice.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2013
5/1/13. 12oz bottle from Bad Habitz in Valdosta. Who thought of that name? Come on. Hazy orange pour with a small khaki head that fades but lacez decently. Mild soapy hop aroma with a big bitter kick, some citrus, caramel malts, pine, and a touch of booze. Sweet citrus and pine with pale and caramel malts in the flavor and a good kick of bitterness and booze. Not bad.

Pour is hazy copper. Nose is sweet pine, mango, floral notes and citrus rind. Taste is hoppy with nice bitterness. Taste is again piney with hints of mango and flowers with some toastiness. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight oiliness. Overall pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
