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.

Bottle. Thanks Kevin! Pours unclear dark golden with a large white head. Great citrusy hop aroma with a hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor of citrus and pine hops with a light caramel/toffee like backbone. Nice long-lasting bitter hop finish. Great beer.

A classic, with a surprisingly hoppy maltiness for an SD IPA of this era. Really nice citrusy/resinous hop character, ofc.

0.75l bottle. Courtesy of Lore, thanks for sharing. Slightly hazy golden body, lobg lasting white head. Aroma of biscuit, honey, hop resin, pine, peach and citruses. Taste of caramel, honey, pine, grass and grapefruit. Hoppy, but not aggressively bitter. At the same time sweet, but not cloying. Awesome beer.

Fashawn (493) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 13, 2015
Aroma verde, pieno di erba, leggermente resinoso e con diversi agrumi, leggerissimo nocciolo di pesca acerbo. Leggermente velata, giallo oro con schiuma bianca fine è persistente, all’imbocco presenta un po ’ di frutta dolce, qualche pesca e una suggestione tropicale, agrumi e tanto amaro agrumato. Liscia al palato, abbastanza scorrevole e leggera ma mai acquosa. Buona, ottima, si lascia bere abbastanza bene
