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

GSH1976 (287) - Delaware, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a light orange/amber with some off-white head. Aroma is a muddled hoppiness (nothing really sticks out i.e. citrus, pine, etc.) and caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus initially along with a little pine and then the maltiness comes into play leading to a bitter finish. Medium bodied. This beer was a disappointment and many other DIPAs are light years ahead of it.

Bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A deep, hazy amber with a lasting one-finger white to off-white head. Aromas of peach, tangerine, mango, pineapple, resin, pine and a little toasty, biscuity pale malt. Similar to taste with great intensity and evenness throughout. Mid-weight wth medium carbonation and a moderate to full intensity and length finish of resin, pine and grapefruit.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bozo_skeleton (905) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 25, 2016
Legerement orangée, petite carbo, collet moyen persistant. Superbes aromes, sève, ananas, juste ce qu’il faut, rien d’extravagant mais bien équilibrés. Tres bel equilibre egalement en bouche, a mi-chemin entre acqeuse et sirupeuse, un caractere malté biscuité, des saveurs resineuses et fruités. Miam !

Robust malt on the nose but the taste develops well. Comes off sweet but the resin and pine notes carry through on the palette. Nice bitterness lingers which balances out the sweet notes.
