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

Good taste. Biterness present. Equilibrated. A little bit too strong. Long hop behind taste.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Hazy amber orange pour with a decent white head. The nose has pretty good tropical fruit and herbal hop notes. There is a bit of malty sweetness to balance out the hops. Overall not bad.

matlev76 (10) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Aroma is quite resinous hop-heavy, with lots of sweet caramel malt t back. Flavour is much less sweet than the nose suggests, with lots of resinous hops, candied sugar, finishing fairly sweet and dry resinous hoppy.

BenOver (103) - SLOVENIA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours with a lot of head. Smell is very hoppy and refreshing. Taste is strong and sweet with a bitter finish. An excellent beer.

hub66 (153) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 17, 2014
couleur dorée; petite mousse blanc-crème; arômes fruités (grapefruit); goût houblonné; l’alcool (8.7 %) ne se fait que très peu sentir; finale très amère et réchauffante; une bonne bière pour les soirées d’hiver

danielecamo (506) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Alla spina all’IBF. Birra in cui non ritroviamo la luppolatura che richiede una duoble IPA, che probabilmente è calata col tempo. Rimane una birra sbilanciata, dolce con finale amaro ma senza i classici sentori luppolati

Pepinis (51) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2014
Cerveza de coloración dorado intenso y reflejos anaranjados. Presenta una ligera turbidez y una buena formación y estabilidad de la espuma. Su aroma está muy condicionado por los lúpulos apareciendo notas cítricas y afrutadas que recuerdan al mango, melocotón o albaricoque. En segundo plano aparecen notas maltosas y ligeramente dulces. En boca tiene buena correspondencia con el aroma, el alcohol está muy bien integrado en el conjunto y no destacan sus 8,7%. De cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. Su amargor es intenso pero de persistencia media. En el retrogusto se perciben notas picantes, un final seco y un suave dulzor residual. Botella 350 ml.

Emeister84 (1084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Aromas of citrus fruit, orange candy, some caramel. Clear red-orange, mostly lasting white head. Some initial sweetness, orange rind, good balance. Medium bodied.

JStax (3168) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2014
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.
