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

At first a fruity bittersweet taste, some grape and a bit honey sweet. A loooooong powerful bitter aftertaste.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Golden orange with a slight haze and a white head that fades quickly. Aromas of dank pine and solid citrus and tropical fruit. Orange rind and piney flavors dominate. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Great West Coast hop profile, pretty damn tasty.

12oz bottle. Orange pour, white foam. Aroma of hops oils. Sweet scent, citrus oils, pine, hop resin. Great smell. Taste is of fresh hops, hops oils. Sweet malt backbone gets put in the back, under hops. Nice layer effect of malts to hops. Very well done. A very nice Double IPA. (3745)

Good overall IPA. Great cloudy amber color. Smooth and not too bitter. Compares to Bell's Two Hearted or Founder's Centennial.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.80):
Pine hops upfront with a lot of citrus & grapefruit backing it up, there is a hint of tropical fruits too that give the beer a refreshing aroma on the nose. There is a sweet, malty base to the beer with some nice caramel notes & a bit of mango and orange too.
Golden amber colour with 1cm, foamy white head with some lacing on the sides & holds pretty well.
Very bitter double IPA with lots of pine hops hitting the taste buds straight away, along with a solid grapefruit taste. Tropical fruits from the nose with the citrus coming through as well, but the pine seems to dominate here. Around the middle some caramel malts & a sweet base.
Smooth & very bitter with a medium body and moderate carbonation. The alcohol content is pretty well hidden in this one and the finish is a sweet one with a lingering bitter aftertaste & a nice tang on the tongue towards the end.

A great west coast IPA, coming through as intensely bitter & hop filled as you would expect from the start & also boasting a great, sweet and malt base than complimented the pine and grapefruit well. The alcohol was well masked & the beer was excellent from the start.

355ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Big tongue numbing beer that shocks the palate with hops. Enjoyable though.

Balazs (786) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle@homa. Hazy orange color with a lush, foamy head. Tangerine, mango, pine, honey, yeast, hints of coriander and vanilla, tons of hops. Honey sweet start, in a full body, plenty of carbs, and a dry, truly bitter, lasting finish. Excellent. One of these everyday please.

androman (312) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2014
35.5cl bottle @ home. Clear golden orange color medium white head. Aroma citrus, slight cannabis, flower in the nose. Flavor is dates, fruits, grapefruit, lime, corkwood, strong hops, grass, licorice, vanilla, citrus again, leaves, herbs, honey, biscuit, rum, wtf, this is very complex. Also leaves, wood, complete forest and mead, river and mountain, full with those aromas when you take a deep breath in the nature far away from any civilisation. Taste is light to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly salty notes at the end. Refreshing, full body, creamy and slightly sticky texture, average carbonation but grows in the mouth, long moderated medicine bitter finish but the more I drink the more bitternes comes, maybe a bit too much at the very end. Very good and interesting one.
