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

The aroma is hoppy with pine and citrus hops as well as caramel malt. The appearance is light amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is smooth. Overall a decent beer but to astringent.

Jolie couleur brun/orangé. Peu de nez. Une attaque en bouche sèche avec pas mal de houblon mais pourtant avec un certaine douceur ( Le Malt ? ). C’est intéressant, l faudra que j’y revienne pour vérifier dans de meilleures conditions de dégustation.

Chopper925 (238) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Hazy amber-orange color, medium, white, lacing head. Really nice grapefruit, mandarin, peach aroma, rich and fruity. Surprisingly dry taste, harsh bitterness, that´s a lot of hop. Thick mouthfeel, nice fresh carbonation, caresses the tongue. Leaves a long lasting bitterness on the tongue, also nice malt and cereal touch, slightly fruity. Minus points for the very harsh, long lasting bitterness. I know it´s an IPA, but for my taste a bit too much. Nevertheless a good IPA.

Bov (9876) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 20, 2015
from Amstein - gusher ... copper-orange beer with a poor head retention; aroma of bitter oranges and resiney hops; thick and full-bodied, some swetness and a fair late bitterness; very fruity hoppy finish (peaches, citrus, mango) and more resiney and piney notes

35.5cl bottle at The Beer Bridge in Bangkok. Poured into a tuliplease glass. A lovely rich hazy amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma of hops and fruit. Good full bodied and all round flavour. Some sweetness. Grapefruit, caramel and hops. Medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste.

On tap at Tavern 18, New Hyde Park. Pour into a tulip, hazy orange grapefruit color with a persistent creamy eggshell head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, some orange peel, slight maltiness. Aroma doesn’t pop to me. Flavor is malty up front (surprisingly), caramel, nice lemon and grapefruit bitterness, some orange. Really great. Pleasant carbonation. Overall a phenomenal beer.

Przylus (164) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 17, 2015
W aromacie karmel, tropiki (głównie mango), poza tym niewiele. Barwa jasnobursztynowa, minimalnie opalizujące. Piana wysoka, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do niskiej i utrzymuje się do końca. Smak bardzo grejpfrutowy (zielone grejpfruty), wyraźne cukierki ślazowe. Po ogrzaniu pojawia się też alkohol. Wysoka i lekko zalegająca, grejpfrutowa goryczka. Zbyt duże nagazowanie.

Difficile trovare un difetto a questa birra. L’aroma di mango e caramello è penetrante ed intenso. La birra si presenta nel suo colore ambrato carico con una schiuma bianca e compatta. In bocca la componente maltata, l’amaro e anche l’alcolicità si amalgamano in perfetto equilibrio. La carbonazione è adeguatamente bassa e il corpo è pieno ma non invadente. Il finale è lungo e piacevolmente amaro. Una birra perfetta per finire qualsiasi serata.

bottle from pivnizub - thanks! Full-bodied, intensively malty with the alcohol discreetly disguised. Lots of aromatic hops that add citrus flavours and some pine.
