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

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 19, 2013
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.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bozo_skeleton (892) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 25, 2016
Legerement orangée, petite carbo, collet moyen persistant. Superbes aromes, sève, ananas, juste ce qu’il faut, rien d’extravagant mais bien équilibrés. Tres bel equilibre egalement en bouche, a mi-chemin entre acqeuse et sirupeuse, un caractere malté biscuité, des saveurs resineuses et fruités. Miam !

Strangebrewer (1098) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
bomber. Poured hazy medium amber with a large beige head. Big resiny aroma of citrus hops. Full body, creamy carbonation with a chewy mouthfeel. Malty base with lots of hop characteristics like pine, grapefruit, apricot, finishing with a peppery note. Lingering finish.

babymammoth (38) - Ardross, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2016
Robust malt on the nose but the taste develops well. Comes off sweet but the resin and pine notes carry through on the palette. Nice bitterness lingers which balances out the sweet notes.

theswiftsa (55) - AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2016
Pours a marmalade Amber with a thick white head with great lacing. Nose is grapefruit, pine and resin hops. Taste is biscuity and marmalade malts up front melding into a pine and resin bitter hoppy finish. Quite sweet for a IIPA perhaps some residual sugars but still quite drinkable.

E_leap (5) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2016 does not count
Bottle : I did read couple of the reviews before i opened the bottle, and i had a rather different experience than the previous reviews, i think its a beautiful IPA, not an imperial IPA, it focuses mostly of the baldy flavours of an IPA, the IBU & alcohol are too mild for an imperial IPA, the colour is truly stunning!!, and texture which very refined, feels very mouthful !, but it’s not something you would drive 50km to try !!, its very nice but that’s all.

I bought this beer at Amstein and I drank it at Bonfol. The color is orange and copper, thin foam, staying a good moment, average carbonation. The taste is what I like bitter and some sweetness, grapes and at the noise we smell a touch of alcohol.
