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.

Calisky (1743) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2015
Couleur ambrée trouble, légère mousse beige. Nez houblonné fruité exotique avec des notes résineuses et citrique. Gout houblonné pin, agrumes et notes resineuse puis malt légèrement caramel, note de fruits exotiques et alcool. Fin longue amère résineuse et pin. Typique ipa américaine, mais nickel...

Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of ripe fruits and caramel. Sweet and fruity flavors, dried fruits, cookie dough, grass and tangerines. Long finish of bitterness.

Restrained aroma in an Amber pour. Pleasant balance of tastes and a crisp clean finish. Background hints of strength makes this a nice brew - but nothing special.

Bottle. Fruity and sweet taste with a full body. The hops are just right. A very good beer.

Fashawn (439) - Montesarchio, ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
Credo non fosse fresca, ma va beh, almeno sono riuscito a finirla. Ambrato carica, limpidissima con poche bollicine in libertà, con una schiuma beige leggera ma bella. Apre al naso con un sentore di liquirizia, un po’ di prugna. Tanto caramello, e poco pino e pompelmo. Non il massimo, in bocca ripresenta la stessa marmellata di agrumi, con punte di mirtilli, poco pino, tanta dolcezza del malto, sembrava di mangiare pane al burro dolce in alcuni frangenti, ed un finale sicuramente non deciso, ma quasi dolce. Alcool ben nascosto ma ripeto, la poca freschezza hanno influito negativamente sulla bevuta.

Aroma has herbs, dough but not much. Nice frothy head, hazy liquid. Medium bitterness. Full body, sticky, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Overall a bit too much alcohol for my taste. Anyway, still very refreshing beer.

mikeyo1 (437) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours a nice hazy orange color with a large tan head. Dry, quite sweet and resinous aroma with oranges, mango and pine apples. Toffee and toast background. Medium to full bodied with flavors of pine apple, mango, orange peel. Grapefruit aftertaste. Toffee, caramel and bread balances. Assertive and lasting grape-like bitterness.

pootzboy (1650) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle- poured a deep cloudy gold with the most incredible cap - it looked like 4 inches of whipped cream and lasted. Aroma is a good balance between Pac.NW hops (citrus, floral pine) and bready-caramel malts. The flavor is the epitome of BIG and Balanced hops and malts battle for supremacy until the long wet finish which gets pleasantly bitter. When you down one of these you know you’ve had a substantial beer - big in flavor, body and satisfaction, yet silky and approachable - probably the best west coast IPA I’ve sampled.

.35l bottle @Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours a bit hazy yellow with high thick head. Aroma is dried fruits, hops, citrus, malts, some bread, syrup notes and pine notes. Flavor is mostly same. Nice balance between sweetish malts and fresh, hoppy kick!
