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.

Green field and slight cooked vegetable aromas, not exactly what I was expecting. Hazy tangerine orange with a fluffy eggshell head. More of same in the taste with a good pronounced earthy/mushroom and pineapple hop bitterness that turns almost jalapeno spicy A light honeyed sweetness tries to balance this but ultimately loses the battle. Leaves a long lasting, tasty bitterness on the tongue. Although it’s a bit muddled, a good IPA nonetheless.

12 ounce bottle pours a medium hazy copper color. Very fluffy light head that lasts a long time. Not a huge hop aroma but there is some pine and citrus. Medium to full-bodied for style with a lot of residual sweetness. Seems like the flavor just drops off within odd after taste. I'm a bit disappointed in this and was expecting more from Anderson Valley.

12oz into a glass. Pours a cloudy medium bodied orange with shades of bronze, brass and tan. Head is mediue strenght, ample, frothy and leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass as a 2cm head lingers. Aroma is piney, sweet citrus, melon, grass, Home Depot fertilizer, and spicey. Taste is piney, grapefruit, bitter hops but a twang of sweetness on the end. Abv can shine in the taste but doesnt negatively factor in. A solid brew, full bodied and strong, this dipa offers what it stands for, a beautiful rendition of a strong ale. Solid.

355ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pretty much a textbook double IPA. Pours clear golden yellow, thin white head. Surprisingly fresh on the nose and taste, lots of grapefruit and resin going on. Light biscuit on the taste, but freshness is the main thing here. Taste’s great, really enjoyed it.

Ungstrup (34219) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2014
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with abeige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, caramel, and spic hops, leading to a a bitter finish.

jamestulloch (3372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle from Great Grog. Clear amber body with a fluffy off-white head. Light carbonation. Sticky lacing marks. Aroma of digestive biscuits, caramel, oranges and honey. Boozy flavour is sickly sweet with pine needles and a lovely peppery finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Not even its 100 IBUs can prevent this from being a cloying, overly sweet beer, although the spice on the finish is really nice. Very malty for a Double IPA.

Pourz a tangeeine color with a good white head. Smells bland a bitter. I’m having to rate this in Hong Jong because its nor available in Austin, Texas. It has the same problem that alk Andersin Valley beers have, bland and bitter. The bland malt overpowers any citrus hop character that could have made it more awesome. On some awesome note its like an American double coming off as a single English IPA

Not an easy drinking beer. Cloyingly sweet and very hoppy. Lots of flavor but couldnt even finish one.

Majek (697) - Ząbki, POLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Clear, amber colour with big white head lasting thin cover to the bottom. Strong aroma of malt, biscuits, citrus and pine. Quite pleasant. Taste is heavy sweet, malty, biscuits or even with bubblegum sweetness. After that appears some bitterness (citrusy and piney), but it’s not well balanced. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Average IIPA.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body has a light haze with a orange-amber hue. The head is dense and neat with great retention and a light tan hue.
Aroma: This smells like an old American barleywine. Subtle citrus and musky malts, some caramel and toast. Not a fan.
Taste: Hints of fig, old malts, light citrus, slight bitterness. Just not enjoyable. Is this a very old keg? We just received it...
Palate: Full-bodied, lightly carbonated.
Overall: I checked the keg, it wasn’t dated easily to read. It says 13112 with a sticker, so I’m assuming the distributor sent us a really old keg. I am not positive though, I will revise this review as needed.
