Explore the extremes of hops, and experience all of their bitterness, flavor and aroma with this Double I.P.A. An extreme, super-assertive and satisfying amount of American hop character is balanced with a toasty, caramelized, intense malt presence.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, creamy, off-white head leaving a discreet lacework. Extremely fresh citrus aroma. Medium body, dry as a bone - absolutely no malt sweetness - completely dominated by citrusy and peachy hop accents. The finish is bitter. 280907

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Bottle. A amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is caramel malt, peach, pine and hoppy, so is the taste. Medium body with a very dry finish.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Tried on tap. robustly floral - a bouquet of an aroma - which sets it apart within its double IPA cohort. Very clean, crisp - an area which many double IPA’s have a slight inherent handicap in. Although strongly hopped, no sharp or rough character. Beautifully floral, clean drinking hophead satisfying double IPA rivaling any competitor. Another great beer Akron can be proud of!

wetherel (1862) - Cupertino, California, USA - SEP 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 Awesome bonus bomber from nolankowal. Hops jumps out at you when you pop the cap. Pours with a small head in my tulip glass. Relatively clear deep amber color. Hops aroma fades a little bit and is replaced by melanoidal malt with no off flavors. Can’t wait to drink it, which is always good. Take a big swallow. Easy to drink. Interesting blend of hops, with a smaller amount of grapefruit hops. Bitterness is generally pretty low. Almost tempted to call it an American strong ale, but DIPA is better. Pretty darn tasty.

22oz bomber... Pours dark amber, somewhat hazy, with a small tan head. Strong aroma of hops immediately hits the nose. Bitter hops flavor gets pushed to the background as the malts make themselves more apparent. Thanks to vyvvy for this bottle.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Pours from the bottle a clear amber and honey orange color. The nose instantly makes me think of so-called Imperial Red ales, with heavy caramel malts, sharp hops and a light dose of alcohol as well. The malt aroma has that maraschino cherry and fusel quality that reminds me of Hog Heaven. Tastes sweet, with more of that maraschino cherry and caramel malt flavor, along with some rough but sticky (and syrupy) pine. Quite hoppy. A strange IPA/imperial red/ASA beer. Thanks for sharing ken!

argo0 (13021) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2007
(22oz bottle, thanks kmweaver) Lightly hazed dark amber body with small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some orange. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some orange, caramel. Medium-full body, some stickiness, light acidity.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 22, 2007
22oz bottle, courtesy of miketd. Thanks, Mike! Pours a dense, golden-amber color; off-white head with large-bubbled retention. Dense, piney and earthy hop character in the aroma; maple syrup and candy sugar maltiness, with some overripe fruit. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: definitely shows a significant malty / earthiness, more so even than any hop character; the hoppy presence is in the background: some earthy and citrus notes, overshadowed by tea-like malts. Underwhelming. Medium, tea-like malts and overripe fruits in the finish.
