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

Arayaga2 (1859) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2015
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 (3114) - 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.

A very big ipa. It was to much malt. It did balance out but to bug on the malt profile. Very cloying. Had a weird bitter taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12iz can shared. Poured a medium copper color with off white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is mslts DNS lots of citrus hops followed by pine. The flavor is an excessive malt base for some reason. Nice hops flavor of citrus and pine. Overall I undestsnd the low score for style but it has a good flavor to it.
