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°

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle from The Perfect Pour, Elkridge. Faintly opaque pour, deep orange. Nice filmy head and carbonation, but you can tell from the nose that this one’s past its prime. Gotta rate the bottle on hand (but why do craft beer places not refrigerate IPAs - seriously?). Might have started off malt forward anyways, for all I know, but it’s certainly sweet and chewy for the most part. Bitter, leafy tea dregs is what the hops have been reduced to. Notes of citrus in there if you try hard, I suppose. Nothing very fruity or fresh about it at all. I’d certainly like to try a young bottle at some point.

Bottle with Keith, Pours murky copper, white foamy head, Notes of caramel, orange, wood, and some light pine. Medium bodied. Ok IPA.

SlovakSniper (3894) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Une IPA impériale qui m’apparaît cuivrée avec une mousse du tonnerre. Un nez de pamplemousse, de conifère, de pêches caramélisées et de fleurs. Un goût floral et résineuse avec des pamplemousses et des céréales rousses et douces. Une finale modérément amère entre la résine et le pamplemousse. Facile à boire. Je ne connais pas la date d’embouteillage mais elle est dans la section nouveauté du Total W. J’aimerais bien la boire en fût.

DiarmaidBHK (3724) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Draft at Two stones Newark. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Grapefruit notes on the nose. I get a bit of sweet malt on the tongue along with some grapefruit notes. Taste lingers a bit. Eh! Kind of one note!

callmemickey (3625) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Hazy orange body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Dank pine, resin, and light tropical fruits. underlying caramel malts are a bit too assertive. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, some residual sweetness in the finish, assertive bitterness.

reggiedunlop (3449) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours clear lt amber/gold with a medium white head. Aroma has pear and tropical fruits. Flavor has lots of stonefruits and pear...a touch of caramel malt...some kiwi. Mouthfeel is medium/full and a bit syrupy with a dry stonefruit/pine bitter finish. Interesting hoppy notes!

mile (3427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - some piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness with lots of piney - light grapefruit hoppyness, faint alcohol. Really well hopped IIPA. Could be little bit drier with less caramel.

ads135 (3357) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2014
A pretty good, albeit not particularly unique double IPA. Very bitter, though with a good, sweet, malty base.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2011
Serving: On tap at Fireworks. It pours a deep gold color with a small, off-white head. The nose is lighter than expected with lots of herbal hop notes. The flavor has a good bit of sweetness with lots of herbals. It’s medium bodied with higher carbonation leading to a sweet then dry finish. Rather tasty.

Blairgus (3333) - California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
21 nov 2013, tap. Pink/gold, clear, no bubbles. Nose is pine and grapefruit hops. Med body and moderately fizzy. Sugary malt that kind of dominates the grapefruit hops. Pretty good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
