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 (195) - 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.

arondee (531) - 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. Theres unfortunately a weird metallic thing I keep tasting every sip. This is pretty big IPA and its a good one but the Im not enjoying the hop flavor which seems to be imparting a bit of a metallic twinge to the beer.

Huge foam, stays in glass. Bright copper color. Big sweet hoppy aroma, but a little dull. Full-bodied taste. Nice after-taste, doesnt have the common bitterness of DIPAs. Really good.

Bomber. I am glad to see this get a nice score. While typing in the name in the search I feared this would rate low because its reasonably priced, doesnt break the 10% abv barrier, isnt a special release and isnt from one of these places that fan boys drool over with gimmicky hop choices . In fact, this is a straight forward DIPA and its what you want. Balanced, hoppy, little heat and very drinkable. Good stuff. Suck it, fanboy.

probstblueribbon (2766) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a nice off-white head. Aroma: Quite sweet and fruity, lots of tropical fruits, peaches and apricots, a little peppery/spicy/resinous, sweet, crunchy caramel maltiness, quite likeable. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: A lot of rich tropical fruits, somewhat peppery, darker and more severe than the nose, rich caramel and dark bread crust malt, some alcohol, citrus oil, resin, quite big; dry with good bitterness, alcohol warmth and a long, toffee and tropical fruit finish.

Strange name, nice DIPA.

Saeglopur (159) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Clear, amber body, with big, frothy, whire head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, apricot, pine, butterscotch, honey, biscuit, grass. Taste with about the same aromas, good balance between bitter and sweet. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with lemon zest, pine, grass and candy. Seems a bit like a slightly stronger version of their Hop Ottin IPA, but less complex. The hop aromas are nice, although Im missing some more fruit explosion for a DIPA, the malt notes are a bit flat. Overall decent, but nothing special.

Cervesa molt equilibrada, tot i tractar-se duna imperial IPA no s exageradament amarga. Cerveza muy equilibrada, aun que por tratarse de una imperial IPA no es exageradamente amarga.

SHANER4 (455) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle-Poured golden color with medium off/white head. Aroma-pine, banana, butterscotch and yeasty/bread. Taste-Dandelion, butterscotch, pine and apricot. Pretty nice tasting beer with this smooth creamy palate. Mouthfeel is medium/heavy and is not overly bitter. For having 100ibus it seems more like a regular IPA. Overall-I enjoyed this beer, not crazy good but not bad either.

dboltoned (3) - - APR 18, 2014 does not count
Could be hoppier for a double IPA. It seems to be a little smooth, which is not bad, but I prefer IPAs to have a kick to them. Definitely a mild IPA.

Pours a dark that orange with a thick white head. Has a strong aroma of pine, hops, malts and caramel. Taste is very malty to start and had citrus hops, pine, and grapefruit. A mix of bitter malt and hop aftertaste.
