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

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazed copper with a beige head of foam. The aroma has notes of pine and earth. The taste is mellow fruit and wood. Mild bitterness. More subdued than I would expect. Sticky mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle - It really wouldn’t surprise me to find out that this is a reproduction of their 20th Anniversary IIPA because it had many similarities. A balanced approach to the aroma and palate was well served. Aroma of orange juice with pine needles. Flavor of grapefruits with white sugar...bitter but sweet enough not to be harsh.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Any other flavors are overpowered by booziness. Harsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color. Forming a big and creamy white head. Great retention and lots of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass. S: Strong notes of caramel malts and tropical fruits. Grapefruit, pineapple, mangoes. Pine and citrus hops profile. A must. T: Slightly sweet upfront. String malt backbone. Strong notes of tropical fruits in the mouth too: Grapefruit, pineapple, mangoes. Notes of vanilla and sweet cake. Great bitterness. Amazing balance. M: Creamy and smooth heavy body. Medium carbonation that fits to the style. Great sweet malty and fruity AND hoppy aftertaste. O: Excellent drinkability. Magnificent IIPA.

Een heerlijke Amerikaanse Imperial IPA. Mooi goudkleurig bier met een bescheiden schuimkraag. Geur van hop, mout, bloemen, citrus. Smaak is uitermate hoppig, bloemig (rozeblaadjes), citrus, bitter. Heel lekker!
