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.

A shade darker than the standard orange amber color of DIPA, with a typical two finger thick, and durable, head. The smell was that of tropical fruit (mango and melon) and some pine. The taste was usual for the style in terms of complexity. There were notes of oak and juniper up front, with some citrus fruits and candy sugar following. There was a sting of carbonation in the finish with a touch of Brett like funk. It was as if this DIPA has been mated with a Saison. The body was dense and sticky, with some tongue coating action. I liked this for a different take on the style.

Danjo312 (73) - Hamburg, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2015
Super Double-IPA! Für relativ wenig IBUs sehr herb. Bitter im Abgang. Schmeckt relativ wenig fruchtig, eher holzig, würzig. Farbe im Glas ist super, dunkles Gold, reinweisse, kurzweilige Krone. In der Nase kaum spektakulär, am Gaumen nur herb und malzig. Gutes Bier, aber nicht spektakulär. Besonders hervorzuheben ist das Tolle Label. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

neongolden (888) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
(On tap @ Lilla Puben, Kalmar, Sweden, Oct 9 2015) Pours a hazy medium orange with a big frothy whitish head and lace. Aroma lots of sweet caramel malt, some resinous pine, dull citrus and tropical notes, a bit grassy, not very punchy in the nose. On the palate, a sweet caramel malt and bread core again, pine resin, citrus rind and pith, touch tropical, leading to a slightly spicy finish with moderate hop bitterness, alcohol heat and lots more malt. Aftertaste has some astringency that dries the sweetness slightly. Medium-full and chewy in the mouth with creamy carb and aforementioned booze. A bit big and malty and not so bright and hoppy, perhaps a bit faded but also not my preferred DIPA style. Not bad.

12oz bottle. When your regular IPA is 7%, you’d think the IIPA would clock in a bit higher than 8.7%. Filtered copper orange body. Well brewed, classical IIPA. Piney citrus rind hop tones. Pretty heavy and bold. Drinks and taste sort of like a Barleywine. Not bad, pretty good really, in a classic Anderson Valley style, nothing really modern about it, but quality all the way.
