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

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
355ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Big tongue numbing beer that shocks the palate with hops. Enjoyable though.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pine and pink grapefruit over a biscuity malt base. Yes, this one is both full of malt and of hops. Some almond partly mingling with a booziness - this spoils the whole picture a bit. The taste is sweetish, the finish warming with a surprisingly restrained bitterness. The mouthfeel is thisk and oily, yes, even fatty I would say. And this oiliness is a bit too much, as it seems to dampen the flavour. The aroma shows that both hops and malts have big potential in here but it never shows in the flavour due to the thick oiliness. Altogether it means that the beer disappoints.

venom666 (332) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2014
Fruity notes, orange, herbal traces and pine on the aroma. The taste is fresh, with pine as the predominant note. The fruity touch is less than intense than the flavour one, predominating citrus above all of them. Bitter finish, with some apricot traces.

Linnet (1096) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2014
Fat malt backbone, jamy, some pine, corn, citric, sort of stale hoppiness, alcohol. Amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing. Big bite, mid-sweet, ABV evident, potent, but not that complex. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Does the job.

Pours an amber orange color with a white head. Hop, citrus, pine, caramel, resin and malt aroma. Hop, mango, pine, orange, resin, biscuit, caramel and malt flavors. Medium body and average carbonation. Decent bitterness and a citrus and hop finish. Nothing special but very solid.
