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

On tap at Tavern 18, New Hyde Park. Pour into a tulip, hazy orange grapefruit color with a persistent creamy eggshell head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, some orange peel, slight maltiness. Aroma doesn’t pop to me. Flavor is malty up front (surprisingly), caramel, nice lemon and grapefruit bitterness, some orange. Really great. Pleasant carbonation. Overall a phenomenal beer.

Przylus (322) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 17, 2015
W aromacie karmel, tropiki (głównie mango), poza tym niewiele. Barwa jasnobursztynowa, minimalnie opalizujące. Piana wysoka, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do niskiej i utrzymuje się do końca. Smak bardzo grejpfrutowy (zielone grejpfruty), wyraźne cukierki ślazowe. Po ogrzaniu pojawia się też alkohol. Wysoka i lekko zalegająca, grejpfrutowa goryczka. Zbyt duże nagazowanie.

Difficile trovare un difetto a questa birra. L’aroma di mango e caramello č penetrante ed intenso. La birra si presenta nel suo colore ambrato carico con una schiuma bianca e compatta. In bocca la componente maltata, l’amaro e anche l’alcolicitŕ si amalgamano in perfetto equilibrio. La carbonazione č adeguatamente bassa e il corpo č pieno ma non invadente. Il finale č lungo e piacevolmente amaro. Una birra perfetta per finire qualsiasi serata.

bottle from pivnizub - thanks! Full-bodied, intensively malty with the alcohol discreetly disguised. Lots of aromatic hops that add citrus flavours and some pine.

JorisPPattyn (8201) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2014
Light gushing to very good, dense & fine yellow head over hazy ochre-orange beer; shards of lace. Very cakey & fruity hops, caramel, maltsyrup, but also citrus, ureum, passion fruit, melon, overripe banana, etc. Bitter, on a sweeter, cakey or biscuity background. Bitter (hop)oils, resin, pine; vegetable bitterness and fruit as citrus (tangerine, grapefruit) or preserved fruit on syrup. Long-lasting flavours; Very oily-slick, rather well-bodied; bit fiery feel, highly carbonated. Quite a good one.

Butelka. W aromacie żywica, karmel, owoce tropikalne, mango, ananas marakuja. Kolor ciemno złoty klarowny, wysycenie średnie do niskiego. Piana gęsta biała. W smaku słodycz tropikalnych owoców, przede wszystkim marakuja, biszkopt, spora miodowość i żywiczność, z wyczuwalną nutą alkoholu jednak nie jest ona gryząca. Piwo bardzo treściwe i aksamitnie gładkie w odbiorze, poezja.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, solid white head cover, sheets of lace. Nice looking brew. Aroma of malt and hops. Solid malt to begin, but it is countered immediately by just as solid hops. Neither side is willing to relinquish its presence, so both sweep through a carbonated swallow to a balanced, great tasting, long-lasting finish. A big, but not overwhelming, brew, a pleasure to drink.

UXO (603) - CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours clear medium to deep gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, pithy citrus, caramel malt, tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, strong bitter, some peppery spice. (7/10) Medium to full body, soft carbonation, strong bitter finish. (4/5) Well, that’s a Heelch of a lotta hops, all right. Not bad at all, if a little malty despite the starts-with-C-hop heavy handedness. Somewhat lacking in subtlety, shall we say? A fairly standard DIPA without a whole lot to distinguish it. Not as good as their Hop Ottin’, but still pretty drinkable. (15/20)

12 oz bottle pours a nice bright amber with a huge white head and great lacing. That’s about all I have left for compliments. Not sure how old this is. Once I could get past the light-struck skunkiness I get to the wonderful cardboard of oxidation. Skunked cardboard isn’t exactly my style. I’d try it again fresh, but this was borderline drain.
