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

Bottle at home. Pours caramel cloudy with a thick offwhite head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is caramel malty, medium to full body with slightly high carbonation. Quite bitter. Overall a good bitter dipa.

Swaroga (1353) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2014
Butelka 12oz. OCZY : przejrzyste piwo o kolorze jasnego brązu. Piana jest niewielka ale wytrwała o kolorze kremowym. NOS : aromat piwa nie ukrywa alkoholu. Mocny zapach jest również tarty i karmelu. Przypomina tarte z budyniem waniliowym i gotowanymi wiśniami. Dochodzą aromaty grejpfruta, dojrzałego ananasa i sernika. USTA : mało gazowane. Oleiste i kremowe. Piwo jest słodkie o dominujących nutach alkoholu i tarty. Odpowiedzialna za równowagę jest gorzkość i aromatyczność chmieli o nutach grejpfrutowych i ananasa. Słodycz i gorzkość są sobie równe a alkohol rozgrzewa. Posmak jest alkoholowy i utrwala smak piwa. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest mocne. To taki amerykański odpowiednik belgijskiego Tripel : hojny pod każdym względem. Trudno się go pije ale jest smakowite. To takie piwo deserowe. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 5/10

In short: a robust double IPA.
Pours quite clear dark gold, with nice creamy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. malty, caramel, pine, citrusy aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is citrusy, caramel, resins. Mighty body, warming mouthfeel, alcohol noticed but nevertheles more or less well integrated. Quite enjoyable.

vanelst (152) - AUSTRIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is less hoppy thany you would expect, in fact its kinda leaning the other way: very sweet and malty. The ending is bitter and long though. By no means this is a bad beer, but I wouldn´t call it a favorite either.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 27, 2014
I might be catching this one a little too far after it’s born on date due to the lack of bitter hop aroma and flavor. 12oz bottle from Blackrock Cellar, cloudy amber poured into the tulip glass. Medium off white head that took a little while to dissipate. Aroma of biscuit and sweet bread, some floral and pine hops, orange zest. Taste is mostly sweet biscuit malts with some floral hops, not what I was expecting. Finish is bitter but not with the usual lovely hoppiness one comes to expect.

Pours a cloudy golden amber on tap at Nik’s Wunderbar. Expected more aroma, taste is bitter as expected. Something off in the balance, keg was just tapped hours ago so I know it’s fresh. Good, but not outstanding.

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2014
Une couleur un peu pâlotte pour une DIPA, mais une mousse comme on l’attend. Au nez, on sent les malts et le caramel qui sont bien présents. La première bouche confirme le nez, avec une note puissante mais équilibrée qui finit sur une amertume bien dosée. Un produit intéressant, mais pas indispensable. On lui trouvera aisément des équivalents moins chers

arondee (565) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a tick orange color with a nice white head. The smell is amazing on this one. Big resiny, piney hops, alcohol, and thick sweet malts. The taste is nicely balanced between bitterness and malt. There’s unfortunately a weird metallic thing I keep tasting every sip. This is pretty big IPA and it’s a good one but the I’m not enjoying the hop flavor which seems to be imparting a bit of a metallic twinge to the beer.

Dalar (18) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2014
Huge foam, stays in glass. Bright copper color. Big sweet hoppy aroma, but a little dull. Full-bodied taste. Nice after-taste, doesn’t have the common bitterness of DIPAs. Really good.
