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

Nice ’in your face’ hoppiness, from the aroma straight through to the taste. Dark golden with small creamy head, lacing coats the glass all the way down. This is a citrus/pine explosion, but very drinkable as well. Alcohol is evident in warmth. Nice double.

35.5cl bottle @ home. Clear golden orange color medium white head. Aroma citrus, slight cannabis, flower in the nose. Flavor is dates, fruits, grapefruit, lime, corkwood, strong hops, grass, licorice, vanilla, citrus again, leaves, herbs, honey, biscuit, rum, wtf, this is very complex. Also leaves, wood, complete forest and mead, river and mountain, full with those aromas when you take a deep breath in the nature far away from any civilisation. Taste is light to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly salty notes at the end. Refreshing, full body, creamy and slightly sticky texture, average carbonation but grows in the mouth, long moderated medicine bitter finish but the more I drink the more bitternes comes, maybe a bit too much at the very end. Very good and interesting one.

Green field and slight cooked vegetable aromas, not exactly what I was expecting. Hazy tangerine orange with a fluffy eggshell head. More of same in the taste with a good pronounced earthy/mushroom and pineapple hop bitterness that turns almost jalapeno spicy A light honeyed sweetness tries to balance this but ultimately loses the battle. Leaves a long lasting, tasty bitterness on the tongue. Although it’s a bit muddled, a good IPA nonetheless.

12 ounce bottle pours a medium hazy copper color. Very fluffy light head that lasts a long time. Not a huge hop aroma but there is some pine and citrus. Medium to full-bodied for style with a lot of residual sweetness. Seems like the flavor just drops off within odd after taste. I'm a bit disappointed in this and was expecting more from Anderson Valley.

12oz into a glass. Pours a cloudy medium bodied orange with shades of bronze, brass and tan. Head is mediue strenght, ample, frothy and leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass as a 2cm head lingers. Aroma is piney, sweet citrus, melon, grass, Home Depot fertilizer, and spicey. Taste is piney, grapefruit, bitter hops but a twang of sweetness on the end. Abv can shine in the taste but doesnt negatively factor in. A solid brew, full bodied and strong, this dipa offers what it stands for, a beautiful rendition of a strong ale. Solid.

355ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pretty much a textbook double IPA. Pours clear golden yellow, thin white head. Surprisingly fresh on the nose and taste, lots of grapefruit and resin going on. Light biscuit on the taste, but freshness is the main thing here. Taste’s great, really enjoyed it.

Ungstrup (29084) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2014
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with abeige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, caramel, and spic hops, leading to a a bitter finish.

jamestulloch (1244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle from Great Grog. Clear amber body with a fluffy off-white head. Light carbonation. Sticky lacing marks. Aroma of digestive biscuits, caramel, oranges and honey. Boozy flavour is sickly sweet with pine needles and a lovely peppery finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Not even its 100 IBUs can prevent this from being a cloying, overly sweet beer, although the spice on the finish is really nice. Very malty for a Double IPA.

Pourz a tangeeine color with a good white head. Smells bland a bitter. I’m having to rate this in Hong Jong because its nor available in Austin, Texas. It has the same problem that alk Andersin Valley beers have, bland and bitter. The bland malt overpowers any citrus hop character that could have made it more awesome. On some awesome note its like an American double coming off as a single English IPA

Not an easy drinking beer. Cloyingly sweet and very hoppy. Lots of flavor but couldnt even finish one.
