Assertive and drinkable. Double IPA is California’s gift to beer lovers. Ours is brewed with four distinctly American hops: Centennial, Citra, Columbus and Simcoe, all beautifully balanced by five malts and generous additions of local orange blossom honey. An intense sensory experience — the fresh aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit with the bold taste of hops and sweet honey. Additional Information: This beer was first brewed to celebrate American Craft Beer Week in 2010. The Double IPA style is distinctly American, and so are the flavors of the specific hops used. This beer was an instant hit (Southern Californians do love their hops!) and we plan on brewing it throughout the year whenever our production schedule allows it.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, earthy and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where exceeded.

Very similar to Red Betty IIPA. Malty, scotch tape, not sweet but dry, yet finishes clean.

"Tropical fruit, citrus and a bit of grass greet the nose. Light in color, medium bodied. Easy drinking for a strong and flavorful beer. Stood up to Hop 15 pretty well, so kudis there. Flavor matches the aroma. Not a ton of depth, but very very very tasty, with a lingering finish."

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Flaske: Lysegul diset øl med et flot skumhoved. Masser af proteinklumper trækker dog ned på udseendet. Ellers moderne IPA med ed smule citrus, tropisk frugt og masser af friskhed uden så megen bitterhed. God øl.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter. Hazy, pale straw color. Creamy, white head dissipates in a few minutes. The nose is citrus and resin, not real powerful like some double IPA’s (was hoping for more). Nice, strong bitter and lively carbonation. Medium body and a very long finish with swells of bitter making a repeated appearance. Well balanced and very easy to drink. You won’t be disappointed.

22 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Golden orange with 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, tropical, caramel, floral and piney notes. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit, mangoes, sweet fruit, piney and floral hops. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Hides the ABV well. Nicely done DIPA.
