COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg & bottled, special
A full-bodied, full-on Double IPA combining caramel and malt flavours with a well-balanced and substantial bitterness, which is topped off by a tantalising hop aroma with notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Light carbonation allows the full flavour of this beer to shine through.

On tap @The Jarvey’s Rest in Muckross, Kerry. Pours a golden amber with an off-white frothy head. Very slight aroma of malts. Taste is malty and sweet with hoppy citrus aftertaste, but more a pale ale/IPA than a double. Medium body and light carbonation.

DraftDodger (1039) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2016
Copenhagen 31/7 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Strange symbols on the label. Looks like a head made witd doodles flying over a comet bursting into the atmosphere. Pours hazy orangeish yellow with white head. Settles as dense 1 cm thick layer of foam. Moderrate lacing. Intense aroma of oranges and slightly fermented sweet fruit. You can smell the alcohol as well. Citric notes of grape fruit and citrus. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Flavor is lightly sweet followed by quite heavy bitterness which lingers in the aftertaste with some metallic alcohol. Dry finish. Nice light Double IPA.

CanCrusher (897) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Hazy orange color with small, stable, long lasting, creamy white head, that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of orange dominates, but there are also some herbs and grassy hops in the background. Light to medium bitter start with creamy mouthfeel and medium to heavy bitter finish with quite a lot of grapefruit. Full body, soft carbonation, dry texture.

Yased (133) - MEXICO - JUL 7, 2016
De la Cervecera Carlow Ohara’s esta bebida estilo Double IPA con un 7.5% ABV, cerveceria popular y de bastante tradición, acentuada en Irlanda y conocida mayormente por sus ricas Stout, en este caso toca probar una Doble IPA, que originalmente el estilo es un invento americano, se puede emplear cualquier tipo de lúpulo(llámese nobles, del viejo mundo, nuevo mundo y experimentales) y debe ser mas maltosa que una American IPA simple y con mas alcohol, el perfil sigue siendo a lúpulo. En apariencia esta Imperial tiene una corona de espuma delgada de baja retención y color cristalino, el color es un dorado profundo en los limites del estándar con destellos mas claros, turbia aunque no presenta sedimentos de levadura pero seguro tiene Dry Hop, cuerpo pleno que ya mancha el vaso. Existen en aroma notas florales, hierba recién cortada, algo de cítricos, el dulzor tambien es apreciable, ciertos olores a grano, muy sencilla y ligera de aroma para una IIPA. El sabor esta en el limite de una IIPA, tiene notas amargas fuertes pero desbalanceadas, la malta no esta de apoyo para equilibrar, los sabores no están integrados y se percibe mucho sabor a alcohol, se alcanza apreciar caramelo, sabores herbales y resinosos, algo de cereales, astringencia al final del trago que va quedando y aumentando, las lPA no son la carta fuerte de esta cervecera, definitivamente es difícil encontrar buenas IIPA’s de manufactura europea.

nephirem (219) - CROATIA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours clear copper color with small and medium lasting white head. Nose is caramel malts and hops, refreshing citrus. Full body with very soft carbonation. Thick, oily texture. A bit sticky. Bittersweet mouthfeel. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hops, citrus fruit, somewhat spicy. Some alcohol presence on the tongue. Dry finish. Not as bitter as I expected, considering the IBU level of 80. Overall, nice one, especially when served ice cold.

Majek (697) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Little hazy, orange colour with medium head. Medium intensive aroma of caramel, some exotic fruits with hint of citrus. Taste is over medium sweet, medium bitter with medium long bitter/sweet finish. Medium carbonation. Medium body. It’s ‘normal’ double IPA, maybe it could be interesting for newbies.
