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

ciocanelu (149) - Timisoara, - JUN 20, 2014
Very strong malt aroma and some faint hops. Taste starts very sweet but is quickly overwhelmed by an intense hop bitterness. A bit too intense on all aspects for my taste. Hops were present only in the bitterness and too little in the aroma and taste.

fredfa (82) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - AUG 4, 2015
Bem amarga como deve ser toda imperial IPA. Amargor persistente após cada gole. O ponto negativo e que praticamente não percebi o malte o que daria mais intensidade de sabores.

commonmac (676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2015
On tap at Kasey?s Tavern in a pint glass. Big fan of this bar. Orange and golden in color. Quarter finger of head. Light lacing. Aroma has elements of grain and malt with an understated hop characteristic. Taste is not as bright as other IPAs and double IPAs but has a strong hop quality. Bitterness plays a big part especially at the end and in the aftertaste. Slight sweetness of tropical fruit comes into play as well. Easy to drink with a sugary mouthfeel. Worth a sample if you stumble across it.

punkska101 (1235) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from Marham LCBO A: citrusy, grapefruit, biscuity, light mango app: clear light copper with thick white head and good lacing. T/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish. O: I couldn’t find a bottling date on the label and sadly looks like I might have it an old bottle. Aromatics are on the low side. hopefully I will be able to find a fresher version and I will gladly update my rating after.

Fat berggrens källare motala. Orangefärgad med rejäl humledoft. Lätt söt och med lite knäck i bakgrunden. Smak av barr, citrus, torkad frukt och bränt socker. Tjock och fin munkänsla med fin efterbeska.

King_Alex_II (643) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Clear orange color with thin foam layer. Sweet hoppy smell. The taste is oily thick, sweet and hoppy bitter. Fruity dry and a little tart aftertaste. Not bad, not too good either.

Pours a cloudy dark orange. Big aromas: lemon, pine, grapefruit, candied sugar. Big hoppy flavors, bready malts, lots of citrus. Very much in the West coast style in term of bitterness. Odd sweet aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA, but it’s still good.

Good hoppy scent, decent golden color. This might be a slightly old bottle as it tasted a bit on the funky side for some reason
