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

Still finishing my notes from the 2011 MWBF. Not a big, hoppy smell to it. I get a little citrus and pine. Nice, thick malty taste to it. Very orangey amber color and some lacy foam in the glass.

Pours a cloudy copper with thick off white head. Nice lacing left throughout. Has a citrus, caramel, bread, and earthy aroma. Sweet tart taste upfront that finished mildly bitter. Flavors of pine, tart fruits, caramel, and earthy notes. Medium body that was sticky on the palate. Was a solid DIPA overall.

alobar (2877) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours a golden amber color with a tall soapy head. Aroma of resin, caramel, biscuit, and grass. Intense flavor with heavy resin, biscuit, and caramel sweetness. Good lacing.

ACHops (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2014
On tap & Chuck’s 85th. Pours cloudy reddish copper with very thin off white head. Aroma is dark caramel malt and tart dark fruit on the back with just a hint of floral hops. Taste is somewhat heavy sweet caramel malt, light tartness, and bitter hops on the finish. Not bad, but no reason to recommend this either. The tart notes seem wildly out of place. The first disappointing effort from Destihl I’ve had.

Salmoniform (1008) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with thick off white head that lingered. Great lacing. Aroma is cucumber, peppercorn, ethanol, straw, grapefruit, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a hop bitterness throughout. Overall this is a so-so brew.
