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

AWISLguy (1517) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
8oz sample at the Taphouse Grill. Pours pale orange with a white head. Aroma has caramel and pine, but quite faintly so. Taste is of watery caramel, some hoppiness. Finishes fairly short. Not a great choice in a place with 20 hoppy local IPAs on tap.

Gurthnar (2363) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma pineapple, fruity hoppiness, then also quite strong caramelly biscuity malt. Clear deep golden colour. Good sized head, moderate duration. Taste has relatively moderate amount of hops, both in terms of bitterness and flavour, pineapple and citruses showing among the general fruitiness. Also moderate body, with moderate caramel malt flavours. It is apparent that the journey overseas impacted the quality of this beer. But it still remains an enjoyable one.

tomekboniek (99) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Butelka. Barwa bursztynowa klarowna z wysoką białą pianą, która ładnie zdobi szkoło. W aromacie, cytrusy (mango, ananas, marakuja - bardzo delikatny aromat), karmel. W smaku grejpfruty, żywica, miód z przyjemną niezalagającą cytrusowo-żywiczną goryczką. Bardzo dobre piwo!

dresden (1027) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap. Big juicy fruit and pine aroma. Somewhat sticky and sweet, pine hops are strong, grapefruit is big, malty and easy to drink. Cant complain

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours amber, clear, single finger white head. Pine, caramel, citrus, malt and alcohol on the nose. Medium carbonation. Taste of malts at the start, caranel, pine then massive citrus and tropical fruits. A nice balance on the bitterness! Lovely beer

ABS (620) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear amber with a medium sized, thick, white head. Heavy resin and pine nose. Some caramel, malt and alcohol. Very bitter. Some sweetness as well. Thick, oily body. Soft to medium carbonation. More than expected from an IIPA. Resin, pine, malt, caramel, honeydew melon flavour. Some citrus and tropical fruit. Quite good. An attempt at balancing a very bitter and hop heavy beer, resulting in a bit too thick beer which is still a bit too bitter.
