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

ajnepple (3443) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2015
4-pack of 12 oz cans on sale for $3.99 at Supermarket Liquors. Clear amber appearance with a sticky, lingering tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine, resinous hops and a touch of alcohol. Similar flavor, adding heavy hop bitterness and mild malt sweetness. Medium to full body. Almost harsh and kind of hard to drink. Tastes old. 150130 on the bottom of the can so I’m assuming it’s about 6 months old. Pairing: Phish - Set One - 7/29/2015 - (Live Stream)

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
355ml can from Total Wine, Tampa. Orangée, cuivrée, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est malté, caramel, fine note houblonnée assez renfermée, herbacé. Palais est malté, avec un niveau alcool assez présent, note sucrée résiduelle, malt caramel, grains et léger biscuité. Effervescence reste haute avec un fini rappelant la pomme caramélisée. Correcte, un peu trop centrée sur les malts pour moi, et les houblons restent un peu en retrait, peut-*être que la date est déjà un peu passée.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2015
Thanks to sebletitje! 355 ml. can split by 4. Hazy orange, big creamy white. Nose big on black bread malts, big bread, some creamy quality, harsh pine resin, malts dominate a bit,.. Taste is heavily bitter pine resin, creamy, rather boozy with big black bread malts,… Unbalanced but not entirely bad. A bit raw but pleasant enough. Creamy body.

AnokaBrewer (90) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Full hoppy aroma, poured amber with a nice head on it that did dissipate. Not a lot of carbonation, but enough. Sweet with a bitter finish that does not linger too long.

sonnycheeba (4247) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Can. Pours clear copper. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, bready malts, soft booze, and soft cherries. Flavor is dry and nicely balanced between the sweet malt character and the hop bitterness with some light boozy character. Medium body.

drfabulous (4804) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 ounce can thanks to Bradley. Orange pour. Some fruity esters and malt. Bit of hop citrus. Not an overload, but ok.

Zeswaft (1466) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Can. Aromaless but possibly medicinal. Flavor is somewhat overwhelming. Alcoholic, tropical with a little bit of coconut sweetness. Will pour out the rest.

pictoman (782) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Poured from 355mL can. Clear, copper brown with off-white head. Mild resinous hops, a little vegetable and subtle sweet malt, quite a bitter finish. Flavour dissipates a little quickly though.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
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.
