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

Credo non fosse fresca, ma va beh, almeno sono riuscito a finirla. Ambrato carica, limpidissima con poche bollicine in libertà, con una schiuma beige leggera ma bella. Apre al naso con un sentore di liquirizia, un po’ di prugna. Tanto caramello, e poco pino e pompelmo. Non il massimo, in bocca ripresenta la stessa marmellata di agrumi, con punte di mirtilli, poco pino, tanta dolcezza del malto, sembrava di mangiare pane al burro dolce in alcuni frangenti, ed un finale sicuramente non deciso, ma quasi dolce. Alcool ben nascosto ma ripeto, la poca freschezza hanno influito negativamente sulla bevuta.

Aroma has herbs, dough but not much. Nice frothy head, hazy liquid. Medium bitterness. Full body, sticky, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Overall a bit too much alcohol for my taste. Anyway, still very refreshing beer.

mikeyo1 (518) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours a nice hazy orange color with a large tan head. Dry, quite sweet and resinous aroma with oranges, mango and pine apples. Toffee and toast background. Medium to full bodied with flavors of pine apple, mango, orange peel. Grapefruit aftertaste. Toffee, caramel and bread balances. Assertive and lasting grape-like bitterness.

pootzboy (1677) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle- poured a deep cloudy gold with the most incredible cap - it looked like 4 inches of whipped cream and lasted. Aroma is a good balance between Pac.NW hops (citrus, floral pine) and bready-caramel malts. The flavor is the epitome of BIG and Balanced hops and malts battle for supremacy until the long wet finish which gets pleasantly bitter. When you down one of these you know you’ve had a substantial beer - big in flavor, body and satisfaction, yet silky and approachable - probably the best west coast IPA I’ve sampled.

Beerhammaren (1498) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2015
.35l bottle @Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours a bit hazy yellow with high thick head. Aroma is dried fruits, hops, citrus, malts, some bread, syrup notes and pine notes. Flavor is mostly same. Nice balance between sweetish malts and fresh, hoppy kick!

fredfa (181) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - AUG 4, 2015
Bem amarga como deve ser toda imperial IPA. Amargor persistente após cada gole. O ponto negativo e que praticamente não percebi o malte o que daria mais intensidade de sabores.

commonmac (819) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2015
On tap at Kasey?s Tavern in a pint glass. Big fan of this bar. Orange and golden in color. Quarter finger of head. Light lacing. Aroma has elements of grain and malt with an understated hop characteristic. Taste is not as bright as other IPAs and double IPAs but has a strong hop quality. Bitterness plays a big part especially at the end and in the aftertaste. Slight sweetness of tropical fruit comes into play as well. Easy to drink with a sugary mouthfeel. Worth a sample if you stumble across it.

punkska101 (1454) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from Marham LCBO A: citrusy, grapefruit, biscuity, light mango app: clear light copper with thick white head and good lacing. T/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish. O: I couldn’t find a bottling date on the label and sadly looks like I might have it an old bottle. Aromatics are on the low side. hopefully I will be able to find a fresher version and I will gladly update my rating after.

Fat berggrens källare motala. Orangefärgad med rejäl humledoft. Lätt söt och med lite knäck i bakgrunden. Smak av barr, citrus, torkad frukt och bränt socker. Tjock och fin munkänsla med fin efterbeska.
