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

olio (7962) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. No freshness info.
Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Lots of sweet tropical fruits on the nose, resinous hops, dinner malty notes and a fair amount of pine. Some alcohol on the background. Sweet fruity flavor, resinous and oily hops, lots of grapefruits, some caramel and gooseberries. Quite heavy and bitter fruity palate. Alcohol not that forward on the flavor, making this quite deceptive too drink. Maybe a bit too sweet but still good.

bookman10 (747) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a deep golden-copper. Aroma has some floral and some fruit elements. Flavor is strongly bitter hops, with a lot of sweetness. Not my favorite approach to a double IPA--I’d rather have more citrus and less of the biscuity sweetness.

rzymol (118) - - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with medium, white, homogenous, long lasting head of very good retention and giving a beautiful lacing. Aroma of resin, coniferous needles, flowers and peachy fruits. Taste of sweet and dense malts and biscuits countered by an intense but not over-exagerated bitterness. Petfect body and oily syrope-like palate. Reminds me of good Belgian Strong Ale. A very well-balanced drink of impressive quality, not overloaded with citral notes and example that dIPA doesn?t need to be only on the hoppy side.

Gurthnar (3191) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma pineapple, fruity hoppiness, then also quite strong caramelly biscuity malt. Clear deep golden colour. Good sized head, moderate duration. Taste has relatively moderate amount of hops, both in terms of bitterness and flavour, pineapple and citruses showing among the general fruitiness. Also moderate body, with moderate caramel malt flavours. It is apparent that the journey overseas impacted the quality of this beer. But it still remains an enjoyable one.
