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. The aroma is full of hops with a very citrus, almost lemon nose. The taste is alos chalked full of hops. Almost a hop mess. I think they tried too hard with this one.

Great hop aroma and the hop bitterness you’d expect form an Imperial IPA. Not so hoppy it melts off your tastebuds though - subtle malty balance.

On Tap. Pours a rich copper with slight off white head. Rich, sweet aroma, malt backbone with hop notes. Taste is mainly sweet with hops showing some bittering. Bold and interesting flavors here.

jsquire (3344) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Golden color out of the tap with the barest of off white heads. Vague nose with some resin. This is pretty subtle for a IIPA, with some caramel sweetness, lots of fruit and berries with a long hop resin finish.

drtbrewster (40) - Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Hoppy, but not an overload, I enjoyed, crisp and citrusy. If it had more of a finished hop I would rate it higher.
