COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lot #6 Double ipa: think of this as our Lot #3 on performance-enhancing malt and hops. 8.5%abv, and all kinds of tropical fruit and citrus notes. Tommy got very nervous when he saw all the hops going into this one. 18.5°

jgb9348 (4658) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Rich deep hazy copper coloured body with a bright orange and peach coloured glow with a massive, four centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of resin, alcohol, pine, grapefruit, a lot of sugars and some noticeable malt. Full-bodied; Super rich flavour of grapefruit and resin up front - this is a pungent and potent beer. Aftertaste shows a great variety of hop flavours with floral notes spanning to pine and grapefruit and everything in between. All with a lot of malt behind for a great balance, but still a strong beer. Overall, a nice and deep imperial IPA that has a great flavour profile, is strong and pungent and served in a small format bottle. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$2.79 sampled at home in Washington on 08-May-2013.

Pour is golden orange and transparent with a white fairly bubbly head. The nose is fairly balanced with malt and hop. Sticky caramel and light dough with citrus orange hop behind. Taste is much more malt forward, caramel, stale grain and dough. Hops are fairly citrusy and brings a light bitterness through a lightly carbonated finish. Body is fairly full and creamy.

Bottle. Pours gold with a slight white head. Some loose lacing. Light citrus and pine aromas. Sticky sweet taste with bits of pine and orange zest. Not bad, easy drinking for a DIPA. Nothing spectacular. Could use a more well-rounded hop bill. Some tropical fruits would go a long way here.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma has earthy, resiny and mild citrus hops with some caramel and mild fruit notes. The flavor is similar; resin and dank hops, mild citrus, toasted malts with a splash of caramel and a touch of fruit. Decent, but something kept it from being a standout.

markwise (4427) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is orange, some caramel, some light red and white grapefruit followed by some mild floral hops. Flavor starts with mild caramel and goes quickly to citrus explosion with white and red grapefruit coming into the mix. Light to medium in body with some mild booze toward the end.

Lovely DIPA, bottle from Capone’s. Orange bodied. Smooth, above average mouthfeel. Rich, complex, lots of fruit. Very hoppy aroma.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2013
12oz bottled January 2013. Served at around 45F.

Pours hazy dark orange witha two finger white head that leaves impressive drippy rings of lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is orange, tangerine, floral hops, some pine, some apricot, decent bit of caramel malt. Good to very good strength but might be a touch past its prime.

Flavor is more orange and tangerine, fruity hops, moderate caramel malt in the middle with some sweetness, decent, but not great bitterness on the finish and mild to moderate alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation.

Pretty good DIPA. Don’t think I’m trying this at its best, would love a fresher sample, but good none-the-less.

Bottle. Cheers to Adam for the generous pour. The appearance is deep orange with a tiny head. The nose is strong pacific citrus hops. Some general grapefruit and orange. A bit of sweet captain crunch cereal and honeyed bread. The taste is more citrus fruits. Grapefruit. Some menthol cigarette. Grass finish. Pretty chunky malt profile. A bit syrupy. Some caramel. Heavy body. Fine carbonation. Overall, decent. Sort of flabby.
