Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Seems a little weak for a double IPA. Can taste alcohol at all, but cant really taste any hops. Seems like a needs an extra kick of ingreidents.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy jack-o-lantern orangy with 1-finger or so off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, tangerine, grapefruit. Tastes very hoppy and tropical fruity, with a solid caramel malt base. I never would have guessed that this one was 10% ABV.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Bomber, pours a clear golden with a thick foamy head; great lacing. Strong aroma of caramel, floral, pine and citrus. A nice bitter bite, but well tempered against the malts to mellow it out on the finish. Not very complex, but satisfying and tasty just the same.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2007
22 oz bomber poured deep gold with thin white head. It smells like wedges of grapefruit sitting on a bed of pine needles. Behind that there’s some sweet malt mixed with the grapefruit to create a sweet orange candy aroma. The flavor seems to be bitter pine and grapefruit hops that slowly sweeten to about midway. Then the bitterness builds but doesn’t get too out of control. The more of this beer I consume the more the grapefruit shines through.

Tmoney99 (12413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle at Dilly Deli. Poured clear amber color with a moderate white frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.

Stine (1713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 On tap at the Muddy Pig. Golden yellow, hazy pour produces some pineapple and orange aromas, alcohol already apparent. Flavors of canned peaches and wine cooler, alcohol imposing itself with progressive confidence. It’s not immensely complex or balanced, but the pleasant citrus melodies of Amarillo are not fully suffocated. Stylistically typical.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2007
On tap at Track 84 in Providence. Orangish copper wtih clear white head. Grapefruit, citrus and pine notes against a sweet malt backbone. Tastes much the same, which is good...but not overwhelming.

The aroma has citrus and pine like hops with sweet caramel malt to balance. The appearance is light amber and gold with a two finger head. The flavor is like the aroma. It’s basic but good with bitterness up front followed by sweetness then a final bitterness. The palate is thin. I feel as though this one is a little too thin and the brewer was playing it safe by keeping the IBU below the level of other IIPA’s. Never the less, I did enjoy this one.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2007
22 oz bottle. Light amber/orange in color. Aroma is a moderate amount of citrus, bready and caramel malt. Taste is moderately hoppy and bitter, citrus, with a pretty good malt backbone. Thought this one could use a bit more hop complexity. Solid though.

Clear orange body with small white head. Nose was citrus, spices and yeast. Thin body, but a good ipa, not overly hoppy, which is good. Nice brew, but not an awesome duble, IMHO.
