COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Double IPA was forged from our creative and experimental exploration of hops. With a variety of 4 exotic hops, we created a citrusy, resinous and tropical flavored sensory experience. This is one of our favorites, and we decided to put it in a 12 oz can! It should be available at the brewery- unless we’ve sold out!

Can. Pours a dark orange body under a one finger frothy beige head that had decent retention. A hefty amount of floaties churning about in there, doesn’t look all that enticing. The nose is citrusy and resiny hops over a carame and toasted malt base. The flavor is rather brash and bitter up front, but it mellows out a bit towards the back end. Rather sturdy caramel malt base without being overly sweet or sticky. Light fizzy carbonation level. Meh, this one’s not super great, but it’s decent.

egajdzis (5871) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, some tropical fruits, toast, and pine. Taste of citrus, pine, grass, grapefruit, with some toffee malts, bitter finish.

guzzler67 (1640) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Cloudy amber appearance with a fairly large, cream colored head and good lacing. Resinous hop aroma with tropical fruit undertones. Although the piney, citrusy hops dominate the flavor, there is a distinct, slightly sweet, malty surge just before the aftertaste settles on the palate. Enough complexity to keep things interesting.

Damico (3108) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Can from R & L, not sure how old it is. Pours very thick unclear amber with an off white head. Aroma brings sweet and root-like malts and juicy citrus hops. Flavor of juicy somewhat sweet hops is overtaken by bitter and dry notes of zesty orange peel. The ending is dry orange juice for sure, if that oxymoron makes sense.

nimbleprop (6908) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 8, 2016
12oz can pours a hazy amber with some clumpy, lacing white head. Nose is OK, some dried orange peel, some stale malt, light caramel, a little soap, some kumquat. Flavor is punchy with orange, kumquat and a little grapefruit rind, nothing superb there though, some malt, brown sugar. Medium bodied, bitter finish. Just OK.

Draft at 2015 Snallygaster. Poured a amber-orange color with a small white head. Aroma was lots of citrus notes, hoppy earthy notes. Flavor was lots of citrus hop character. Light crispness, easy drinking. Tasty.
