COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every year we anxiously await the warmer months to unleash this Double IPA, the summer edition of our YuleSmith seasonals. The flavor imparts orange, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes with earthy, spicy, and resinous pine undertones. A sturdy malt backbone balances out the profound hop bitterness to create a refreshingly assertive and vibrant beer that offers an unapologetically bold expression of fresh American hops.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 Pours a bright golden orange with a foamy, bubbly white head with very nice lacing. Aroma is of aromatic citrus, pine resin, floral hops, and some tropical fruits. Taste is of citrus (grapefruit dominated with some tangerine and orange), pine resin, floral hops, tropical fruits (pineapple and some mango) some earthiness,, some sweet malts, and a little caramel malt. Has a medium-full body with a super creamy mouthfeel, and a dry,bitter, but sweet, well balanced finish. overall, a amazing DIPA that hides its alchool very well. definitely belongs among the best DIPAs in the world.

Bomber bottled on: 05.06.14. Szkło: Teku. Po otwarciu butelki od razu pojawiają się piękne, intensywne cytrusowe i kwiatowe zapachy. Piwo barwy złotej, delikatnie opalizujące. Piana piękna, gęsta drobnopęcherzykowa nie chce opadać. Aromat jest cudowny, żywiczny, kwiatowy. Bardzo intensywny, jak na IIPA przystało. Doszukać w nim się mozna owoców cytrusowych takich jak grapefruit oraz tropikalnych - ananas! W smaku piwo jest juz troche ułożone, piłem je 7 miesięcy po zabutelkowaniu. Goryczka jest solidna i dobrze zbalansowana słodami. leciutko miodowe i jest wyczuwalny alkohol, co nie zaskakuje bo piwo ma jednak 8.5%. Bardzo dobre IIPA o fenomenalnym aromacie.

Bottle at tasting. Dark golden pour, white head. After popping the cap, a strong aroma of fruity hop and some malt fills the room. Delicious taste of bitter malt, some caramel, biscuit, pine, orange and grassy herbs. Not easy to drink, but very tasty.

KW92 (216) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 27, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, trwała i obfita. Ładny "lacing".
AROMAT: Bardzo słodki aromat landrynki, ewentualnie multiwitamina, ale do rzeczy: karmelkowa ziołowość, aromat przypominający herbatę Earl Grey, tropikalne owoce (ananas, kokos, liczi, marakuja), słodkie cytrusy (pomelo, mandarynka, pomarańcz).
SMAK: Z początku świeży cytrusowy, choć bez specjalnej goryczki, a za chwilę karmelowo-ziołowy. Alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk, ale mógłby być nieco lepiej ukryty. Goryczka średnia do niskiej. Wysycenie średnie.
OGÓLNIE: Jest to piwo z gatunku tych, które przyciągają uwagę swoim aromatem. W smaku również mamy wszystko to, co powinniśmy spotkać w dobrym Imperial IPA. Na plus aromat, na minus słabo ukryty alkohol w smaku.

Thanks to John for sharing! Pours a pretty honey color with an off-white head. The smell is pine, toasted malt. The taste is pine, sweet malt, ending bitter and dry. The body is medium with nice fine carbonation.
