The mother of all hoppy beers, the Double-IPA is loved by many and feared by more. Going against our mission to make balanced beers, a healthy portion of Cascade and Citra hops were used to create a smoothly bitter double IPA with big and lingering floral aromas.
Malts: Pale, Munich
Hops: Nugget, Cascade, Citra

EBF 2015. Une belle bière aux notes tropicales de pamplemousse, d’ananas et de papaye verte, j’ai décidé ça. Une bouche résineuse, tropicale. Une belle offre.

Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Almost clear golden with a frothy off-white head and good lacing.

Aroma: Resinous hops with citrus, light spiciness, caramel notes and mild dank hops presence.

Taste: Moderately sweet. Caramel, resinous presence, hops, mild dank presence and moderate bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily. Dry and resinous finish. Lingering caramel presence.

Overall: Decent balance. Easy to drink for the abv. Nose is interesting, taste is a tad less.

Sample at EBF. Clear deep gold pour with tenacious lacy white foam. Aroma is good, nice dank leafy hoppiness, fresh hops, light tea leaf, light onion, earl grey. Taste is bitter, nice hop juice, light caramel, there is some malt presence, light booziness, but it works pretty well together, fairly balanced. Palate is med-full bodied with light-medium carb. Nice.

Nez classique de double india pale ale montée sans doute par le Citra ou autre houblon du même acabit. Côté tropical, pamplemousse, ananas et parfums très verts. C’est bien. En bouche, ça commence vert (conifères), ça évolue vers le pamplemousse et ça finit en notes résineuses très fortes. C’est un peu dommage, ça brise la magie qui s’installait. L’arrière-goût est assez intense en amertume. On dirait que c’est mal ajusté. Mon palais manque sans doute de fraîcheur et peut-être que le baril l’est beaucoup trop. Allez, c’est pas si pire.

Can sample at a tasting. Thanks DSG! Hazy amber with a decent head. Aroma of tropical fruits, honey and light malty notes. Sweetish with flavors of lychee, mango, pine with crispy grassy bitterness. Medium-bodied, dry-ish mouthfeel. Good drinkability for 9% ABV!

rbpotts (5) - Westford, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 30, 2015 does not count
Hazy deep gold, thin head. Fresh hop aroma with Citrus. Flavor is hoppy and floral. I was quite surprised that it was this as Smooth and Aromatic as it was.... Overall I would place this in the top 10%

Clear orange pour, thin head. Fresh hop pellet aroma. Canned pineapple. Gummy bears. Flavor is simultaneously sweet and bitter. Plenty of hop flavor, but. Not really complex and expressive. That nice pineapple citra note from the aroma gets lost in the flavor. Indelicate, but pretty cold if you want something big and flavorful to drink out of the can.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Re-rate 1/15: Can shared at a tasting at Stas’s place. Lovely fruity ans slightly "green" hops aroma, with a bit of malt. Flavor has some malt, nice fruity hops with "green" and piney note and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice. Apparently it’s the same batch as the previous can I tasted, but it smells and tastes completely different. 8/3/7/3/15=3.6

Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. Clear deep golden-copper/ Aroma of slightly caramelly malt and some mild fruity hops. Sweetish malty flavor with slightly stale fruity hops and a nice bitter finish. Medium-bodied. 6/3/7/3/13=3.2
