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

TheJestersBeer (2156) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a thick white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, very fruity, passion fruit, pineapple, spruce, grapefruit peel, mango, grass, malt, caramel. Off-dry, medium bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Surprisingly lean taste, very hoppy, spruce, resin, grapefruit peel, malt, mango, passion fruit, grass. Very nice, but a bit more body would soften the punch from the high ABV a bit better. (2013-04-22)

tmoreau (2682) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
On tap and snifter served at Ellyn’s in Glen Ellyn, IL. showing an agitated, orangy amber hue at first, but cleared as it settled. The head was frothy white and gradually reduced to a ring & bubbly film. Lacing was clingy and sheet-like. The aroma started sweet, with a slight sense of alcohol. The main components were smooth malt, grapefruit, orange peel, and resiny pine. The flavor was similar, with definite alcohol presence, strong & lingering, rind-like hop bitterness, and sweet maltiness. Medium+ bodied. A big DIPA that never came off harsh, but got smoother as it warmed.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Bottled. An average offering from the brewery at best. Boletus and resinous hops throughout. Not really my kind of double IPA.

Welley_Alves (223) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 24, 2013
Maravilhosa breja de Boonville, EUA. Um Imperial IPA com cor âmbar, boa formacao de espuma, com ótimo aroma cítrico, lembrando grama e frutas amarelas. Na boca, sente-se logo o dulçor do malte, com perfeito equilíbrio com o amargor intenso que vem a seguir e que permanece ate o ultimo gole. Retrogosto amargo e duradouro. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
