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

Poured a nice clear amber color with a white head. Aroma had a nice mix of hops strong resin and grapefruit notes. A slight dirt/soil presence probably from the resin hops. Flavor was heavy on the hops and had great balance between both the resinous hops and the grapefruit hops with the grapefruit coming through slightly more than the resin. Nice sweet caramel malts cut through the bitterness there was a mild presence of biscuit malts. more in the flavor than aroma. Moderately dry on the finish.

Could be hoppier for a double IPA. It seems to be a little smooth, which is not bad, but I prefer IPAs to have a kick to them. Definitely a mild IPA.

Pours a dark that orange with a thick white head. Has a strong aroma of pine, hops, malts and caramel. Taste is very malty to start and had citrus hops, pine, and grapefruit. A mix of bitter malt and hop aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Aroma of cantaloupe. Taste is bizarrely and unexpectedly sweet at first taste. Given name leads you to anticipate "lots of hops," taste ends up being kind of offy-sweet.

FatPhil (8602) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2014
355ml bottle (Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Sugary sweet malty aroma, dripping with caramel, sweet fruitiness from the hops. Says "gonna be *way* too sweet" to be honest. Orange, small tight head. In the mouth, it nearly satisfies the prediction from the aroma, but subtly derails it, and sends it in the direction of "yum". Yes, this is super sweet, but the lemony citrus hops keep it sharp. Palate is smooth, but not quite slick, carbonation and bitter bite prevent that. Slips down easily, drinkability amaingly good considering the sweetness. Definitely in the guilty pleasure zone, as this isn’t my style at all. Citrus hops initially the attention-grabbers, but red peppery bitter hops have the last say, there’s a nice little warmth to the finish. For something so far away from the beer styles I like, this has hooked me, and I have to congratulate the brewers - you made a hater like the style briefly.

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