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

ABS (651) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear amber with a medium sized, thick, white head. Heavy resin and pine nose. Some caramel, malt and alcohol. Very bitter. Some sweetness as well. Thick, oily body. Soft to medium carbonation. More than expected from an IIPA. Resin, pine, malt, caramel, honeydew melon flavour. Some citrus and tropical fruit. Quite good. An attempt at balancing a very bitter and hop heavy beer, resulting in a bit too thick beer which is still a bit too bitter.

Drank with Rik 02-02-2014 while watching wie is de mol. Liked this beer. It has a very rich smell and a fine taste. Very hoppy in the beginning but a more soft, nice core of the beer. Good one.

SinH4 (678) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Orange/copper color with nice white head. Nose is piney and biscuity, hop fruitiness as well, mango I guess, but not too much. Taste has more pines, nice residual sweetness, toasty malt body, warming finish with more mango and citrus, bitterness is not excessive. Sticky mouthfeel, full body, low carbonation. A nice one.

Hazy deep orange golden color with a fine white head. Powerful fruity and hoppy aroma. Thick nice body. A bit oily. Tad sweet and a rich bitterness. Average carbonation. Grapefruity hoppy, tropical fruity and deep malty flavor. Nice powerful ale.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Jolie couleur brun/orangé. Peu de nez. Une attaque en bouche sèche avec pas mal de houblon mais pourtant avec un certaine douceur ( Le Malt ? ). C’est intéressant, l faudra que j’y revienne pour vérifier dans de meilleures conditions de dégustation. ------ dégustation ....Et bien j’aime vraiment bien. Des notes de fruits exotiques en plus

Chopper925 (268) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Hazy amber-orange color, medium, white, lacing head. Really nice grapefruit, mandarin, peach aroma, rich and fruity. Surprisingly dry taste, harsh bitterness, that´s a lot of hop. Thick mouthfeel, nice fresh carbonation, caresses the tongue. Leaves a long lasting bitterness on the tongue, also nice malt and cereal touch, slightly fruity. Minus points for the very harsh, long lasting bitterness. I know it´s an IPA, but for my taste a bit too much. Nevertheless a good IPA.
