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 (208) - 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.

jphartley (15) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop Amsterdam. I can smell malt and hop, but nothing too distinct. The flavor is not bad but the finish is a bit too bitter for my liking. Overall Double IPAs are one of my favourite styles, but this is not one of them.

jmgreenuk (4475) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Scheveningen. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head, The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp resin nettle hop bitter light caramel palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. This beer made me sneeze so the hops are there but they are the wrong hops for me I’m afraid. It wasn’t so bad but a bit predictable from the first sniff.

Juicy citrus, tropical fruit, pine and biscuit malt on the nose. Very soft full feel, covers the abv completely. Flapr much like the aroma, mellow but flavorful at the same time. Really enjoyed this."

ogniskowicz (100) - - SEP 15, 2014
Świetny aromat cytrusów i słodów, przełamany, chyba ciut za mocnym alkoholem. Wygląd fantastyczny, piękna ciemnopomarańczowa barwa, piana średnia, ale wspaniale oblepiająca szkło. W smaku mocna słodowa podbudowa, nieco korzennych i żywicznych akcentów, sporo cytrusów, finisz goryczkowy z grzejącym alkoholem. Bardzo dobre IPA,

PapaVillum (449) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
355 ml (?), flaske, 8,7 % ABV, købt i Toft Vin på Bryggen CPH, 14. september 2014. Orange/kobberfarvet amerikansk dIPA med fin offwhite 1 1/2 cm tyk skumtop, som svinder til 1/2 cm efter nogle minutters tid. Dejlig aroma af appelsin, humle, sukat, græs, blomster og gran. Senere er der noter af marcipan/mandel. Dejlig smag og endda lidt mild. Men skøn bitter i slutningen. I begyndelsen har vi sødmen og det bitre i fint sammenspil samt den skarpe smag af humle og en god solid krop. I slutningen overtager humlebitterheden en smule og afslutningen er bitter, næsten besk. Øllet er blødt, men perlende i munden og konsistensen oily. Kuldioxid på et medium niveau. Dejlig øl med begge elementer i en Imperial IPA, jeg holder af: humleskarphed og en anelse sødme.
