COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Essentially, the same recipe as the IPA, but with approximately 25% more grain and 3 1/2 times the hops! 75 IBU’s, 100% Columbus Hops.

Decent IPA, though I prefer the previous/original version. Maltiness kind of snuffs out the delicate hop aromas. Some citrus surfaces, but it’s kind of weak. Sort of nutty and resinous. Not as hoppy (flavor-wise, aroma-wise or bitter-wise) as you would expect for a double IPA, let alone one with 75 IBUs. Still, it’s a decent beer.

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2014
Tap at Marciero. Fruity, resinous aroma, some caramel, rich stone fruits. Deep amber color with a fine, lacy head. Nice enough flavor, cherry, muscat, peach, plum, pine, a bit of chocolate. Full. Ok, but not enough flavor for the strength, and a bit too thick. Very old school.

Eh. Bitter. Would have been better if complemented by some other kinds of hop. Not bad but not good either.

A solid beer, however it is surprisingly bitter. It’s nice but there doesn’t seem to be much complexity to it.

Beerathon (1287) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
For having "100% Columbus hops" it’s impressive that so many hop notes come out in this brew. A bit of earthiness, spice, and slight piney and citrusy nose. Nice dry finish. Overall and enjoyable 2XIPA.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a bright orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral aroma is quite engaging. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some floral undertones and some lightly sweet caramel malt notes. Pine notes are also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A bit too sweet for my taste but still extremely enjoyable.

AndyW68 (1156) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Hazy orange gold pour with a light white head. Aroma is sweet artificial pine. Taste is citrus and pine hippy. Mild bite at end. This would have rated much better just a few years ago, but competition is getting better.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. More or less the standard pour -- golden, amber with a super firm, pillowy top of white foam. There’s little aroma, just a hint of pine. The beer drinks with a decided astringency, finishing with a super dry earthy, sap-based acidity. Sticks with you for a while. (#5205, 8/21/2013)

Sample from bomber. Orange pour, with a white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, light piney hops, bread, and cardboard. Not a very good IIPA, the bottle might be old.
