An IPA with a Pilsner added to it! Great idea, and excellent taste. Like an IPA with extra flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Double Mountain Hop Lava) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 7%
Pale orange colour on the body, lazy activity in it. Slightly hazy, wiht a small and somewhat thin, white head on top, with good retention nevertheless, but minimal lacing on the glass.
Caramel malts on the aroma with just a hint of citrus and grapefruit, some floral touches too.
Moderate sweet taste at first, giving its place to a quite strong bitterness almost straight away. Caramel malts, grapefruit, orange, straw, grass, citrus, moderate hoppy.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry palate.
Quite good, not very aromatic but the bitterness made it up for me.

Growler - Cloudy dark hay color. Dry hop flavor but the hop flavor is not very strong or over powering. Very little sweetness. Not very complex on the nose or palate.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel - faint bread and light tropical fruitiness with some piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel - faint bread, light ropical fruitiness, some piney - light grapefruit hoppynes, faint alcohol. Too sweet/too much caramel - could use more bitterness to balance caramel and sweetness. Nice head though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home shared with Abijen. Clear golden color, medium to full sized thick white to off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is dull: malts, hay, hayish bitter. If it was a pilsener it would be quite crisp and hoppy. Tastes the same: malts, hayish, hayish hops, malt bitter. Huge disappointment. Crappy IPA or a crappy bottle.
