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

Sampled in a 12 oz bottle. A ton of hops. A really smooth ipa with an aromatic finishing.

Not bad, but not as good as their IPA. Lacks really complexities of flavor. Just and overall bitterness.

ruigo (2318) - PORTUGAL - AUG 24, 2016
355cl bottle. Hazy golden orange colour with a nice off-white head. Liquorice, peach and caramel in the aroma. Taste medium bitter and medium sweet with fruity notes. Long dry and bitter finish. Overall, a good beer.

Mdbeerfan (19) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Tried on tap at The Roast House Frederick, Md. Thin head, pours dark golden color. Aroma of hops, malt, pine. Nice and hoppy. Slightly crisp mouthfeel. Hops, pine malt, nice lingering finish with a very slight bitterness. Not my favorite ipa by any means but pretty solid as far as hoppy ipas go

solidfunk (7614) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Some citrus and lots of peel. Light pineapple and a decent dose of booze. Orange pour with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Tap at Black Squirrel.

jb (2933) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Plenty of malty notes in the nose and taste, something a bit heavier than standard caramel. Rich. Nose also has pine and a touch of citrus. Palate is balanced, like an APA, finishes slightly dry.

kaserov (174) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 5, 2016
Color naranja oscuro, algo turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatación media. Aroma similar al de la Hop Ottin’ pero algo más alcohólico, menor aroma a lúpulo. En boca es medianamente dulce al inicio, con un amargor final muy disfrutable. Tan disfrutable que cuesta creer que contenga 100 IBUs. Buena Imperial IPA, pero, al igual que con la Hop Ottin’, esperaba algo más.

andrepintado (2726) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle. Color is orange. Appearance is hazy. Thin head. Taste is medium bitter, light medium sweetness. Medium body. Aroma is orange, hops, resin, piney, wood, blueberries.

sulawang (1029) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
Visual: Pours orangish-brown with a very small head, half-sticky lacing, thin big island retention, steady singular streams Nose: sweet whiskey’d alcoholic barley malt. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: fine-creamy full CO2, incoming heavy malt Mid-palate: (lvl-6-sweetness), biscuity-toffee malts, tangy orange/grapefruit citrus, alcohol heavy Finish: grassy woody bitter hops, residual alcoholic barley malt sweet, palate numbing bitter. Summary: Good bold biscuity malt flavour backed by significant citrus hopped bitterness. It drinks quite alcoholic heavy, not the smoothest DIPA that I’ve had.
