COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Our mission for this Imperial or ’Double’ India Pale Ale is to overload the beer with hops for an intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma while still being balanced by a big malt profile, resulting in a hoppy beer with more dimension. This beer is light copper in color with some hop haze from overloading with dry hops as well. World Beer Championships Award: Bronze Medal 2011

Can. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a moderate frothy light tan head on there. Nose is noticeably hoppy and sweet, and has some resiny notes to it. Taste is a bit bitter, but the hops have clearly turned, and does not seem fresh. Bleh.

12 oz Can. Dark amber color with some gold hues. Big fluffy white head, dissipates somewhat quickly. Hoppy nose, cantaloupe and pine. Tart flavor, not sure on first sip if I love it. It is good, not great. There isn’t a tremendous amount going on flavor wise, but the maltiness is a but off putting for my palate. I have no issue with this, but it isn’t memorable.

Reddish brown with an inch of tan head. Aroma is sweet, with red grapefruit and some dark plum notes. Taste is the same, with a plummy alcohol syrup that carries into the finish. Nice stuff, not overly alcoholic, with a high amount of residual bitterness. $2.7/12oz

DialSquare (3172) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
12oz can from Weilands. Clear copper pour with light tan head and foamy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, herbal, grass. Tastes are fairly malty up front then spruce, sugary dough, floral, grass, spices, pine wood, citrus. Oily resiny hops on the medium palate. Fairly bitter in the finish, but the sweet malt wins out overall. Decent dipa sippa.
