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

Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Big spongy head at pour. Smell is big on hops, but more balanced than the Sam’s Rebel IPA I had before. This one is a bit more citrus and apricot, with pine needles along the way. Taste bring in the same hop impressions as I had on the nose. Almost tongue-curlingly bitter, with toasty malt fighting to provide balance. Too much hop to let any alcohol notes get in.Despite all that, it drinks pretty easily, leaving a bigger wallop of hops as an after-taste.

CelticBrew (905) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Pours from 12 oz bottle a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite resinous hop-heavy, with lots of sweet caramel malt back. Flavour of herbal hops, tropical floral notes, citrus fruit, caramel, toasted grains, sweet malt, and wet field grass. Overall decent DIPA, would drink again, but not super memorable. Would recommend.

Turtles (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
355ml bottle. Quite clear, golden amber, fine fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit, biscuits and freshly baked bun. The flavor rolls around in your mouth, good balance of hops and full malt body. Many sweet flavors, hard caramel candies, peach, pineapple, spices, maple syrup and more for each sip. Very good this !!

olio (6881) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. No freshness info.
Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Lots of sweet tropical fruits on the nose, resinous hops, dinner malty notes and a fair amount of pine. Some alcohol on the background. Sweet fruity flavor, resinous and oily hops, lots of grapefruits, some caramel and gooseberries. Quite heavy and bitter fruity palate. Alcohol not that forward on the flavor, making this quite deceptive too drink. Maybe a bit too sweet but still good.

bookman10 (701) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a deep golden-copper. Aroma has some floral and some fruit elements. Flavor is strongly bitter hops, with a lot of sweetness. Not my favorite approach to a double IPA--I’d rather have more citrus and less of the biscuity sweetness.
