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

Rating #1039 - March 27, 2014 - Anderson Valley Tap Takeover @RevolutionYEG 8.7% . Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is tangerine, mango essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey/meyer lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Boozy, hoppy, and unreal flavour and balance. Superb.

Very hoppy aroma what shouldn’t surprise. The bitterness is just huge and amazing. You can’t feel alcohol at all. Mostly hops and hops. It’s trying to be moderate by some sweets, but loads of hops determine the taste and aroma.

From a bottle. Pours a cloudy orange, thin lasting head, big floral aroma, sharp hops upfront, deep rich hops flavours. Loved it.

From a bottle to a glass. Amber colored pour. Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Citrusy, malt and hops on the taste. Decent beer.

355ml bottle. Pours deep, dark golden, off white head. Rich smell of sweet malts with light fruity and floral notes, some hops. Taste is sweet malts and caramel with some citrus and an excellent final hopping. Stays away from the tropical juice like IPAs. Very good.

ciocanelu (51) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 20, 2014
Very strong malt aroma and some faint hops. Taste starts very sweet but is quickly overwhelmed by an intense hop bitterness. A bit too intense on all aspects for my taste. Hops were present only in the bitterness and too little in the aroma and taste.

MichaelAwesome (3932) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Nice in the hops with a bit of ripe fruits background. What kills this one is that strong and tasteable alcohol background which lets the beer end quite skunky. Average brew.

Bitter beer. Tasty. Orange peels and grapefruit. Draft at green lady. Hoppy earthy gummy taste.

McTapps (3931) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light amber colour with low head and crisp body. Aroma of hops, caramel, malt and mild spices. Taste of fresh hops, barley,cake, spruce, spices and bread. Dry-bitter finish. Quite nice but nothing special.

L’imperial ipa che vorresti trovare sempre: ben bilanciata tra lo sfondo maltato e caramellato e l’intenso aroma dei luppoli, con note fruttate leggermente dolci, presenza alcolica ben celata. Buonissima!
