Pours amber with a thick white head and lots of legs. Aroma is a sweet fruity hops. Taste is sweet malts, hops, good bitterness with a dry sweet finish.

This is a pretty average double IPA. I actually like the single IPA, the Hoppin to Heaven, better than this one. There is just nothing special about this beer that blows me away. It pours an amber color with a small off-white head. There is plenty of lacing left around the glass. There isn’t much in the aroma; only some subtle hints of light hops and a hint of caramel malt. The body strength and mouthfeel are both about average. The flavors are kind of bland for a double IPA. There’s certainly hops here, but just not enough that knocks me off my chair. The flavors are nicely balanced, with delicious notes of grapefruit, oranges, toasted malt, caramel, alcohol and some floral, grassy notes. The beer finishes nicely, with a dry, bitter and floral flavor of hops.

Ferris (2911) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle - Woody, pine and earthy hops, with a big malty backbone. Clear dark amber with a thin white head. More like an American Barleywine with big malty caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Earthy and woody, very nice.

Lilja (1530) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Hmm, en flaska från Brill. En riktig fin dubbel IPA. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, pesika, aprikos. Lagom söt, stor kropp, tjock med en fin beska med smak och tall och grapefrukt.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Flaska från Brill som inte är purfärsk men heller inte gammal. En ganska mörk ornagebrun färg med lågt krämigt skum. En söt DIPA med rejäl maltkropp som får mig att tänka BW eller ASA, humlen är där, inte jättepigg men fortfarande maffig. Mycket karamel, grapemarmelad, tall, aprikos, persika, rejäl beska. Ett häftigt och gott öl, men inte riktigt min typ av DIPA å andra sidan är den riktgt välgjord och kroppen imponerar.

pushkinwow (1955) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle from Capones. About 3 years old so a completely different experience from when I had it fresh - poured it carefully to keep the dead yeast and sediment in the bottle. Apricot, fig, still piny with some citrus, mild carbonation and full body, sweet with a nice bitterness underneath, but definitely past its prime.

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2014
Une belle découverte. Malgré un IBU très élevé, une saveur bien équilibrée avec une première bouche sèche qui tire rapidement sur une belle onctuosité bien dosée et une amertume qui colle au palais juste ce qu’il faut. Bref : comme toujours, Hoppin’Frog assure

TXBadger (1219) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours more amber than gold for this IIPA. Lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, and a little orage on the palate, with some piney grass as well. Finishes with some caramel malt.

Maddog (381) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle from the brewery in Akron. A solid IIPA. The Pour is dark amber that lends itself to the intense spicy hops and malty backbone. This is a very different IIPA. Although the finish is full of hop bitterness, there is a lot of caramel malts present throughout. Spicy,malty and lots of bitter, piney hops.

Beerhunter111 (6776) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig herb, fruchtig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack stark malzig bitter, fruchtig herb, minimal würzig.
