COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This double IPA has twice the hops and grains as its counterpart. Significant floral, citrus, and peppery notes on the nose, yet even with the enormous hop profile, the huge grain bill results in a very well balanced brew.
Hops: CTZ, Chinook, and Simcoe

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bomber on 2nd June 2015 into a La Chouffe tulip three times. Cloudy/misty amber with a weak white, wispy head on each pour. I am old enough to remember the TV series Casey Jones, but it was the picture on the front label that made me buy the beer (Texas Liquor, Carlsbad) as the dog on the rail track looks like ’Frankie’ our daughters Black Labrador cross. The beer is a hop monster with a huge bitterness that overpowers everything else the brewer might, or might not have added to the grist. I liked it: I am warming to these exceedingly hoppy West Coast brews it would seem.

Floral and citrus IPA heaven. 22oz pour at home, orange and clear with white head. Hoppy and fruity. Juicy and delicious

Draft. Dank grapefruit aroma. Flavors don’t exactly follow nose: There’s certainly some grapefruit here, but also orange and intense bittering. Mild chocolate malts sit (far) behind it all. Finnish is more bitter, with a bit of chalk. Lively progression. Strong beer.

gyllenbock (5898) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2015
Sample at the Bistro’s DIPA-festival 2015. A bit hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma and taste of grapefruit, citrus, pine and some light cookies. The finish was bitter and with warming alcohol.

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Bomber bottle from City Beer, SF (bought on recommendation of the clerk), drank at home. Slightly hazy rich copper orange with a fading offwhite head. Nose of orange, grapefuit, resin, lots of crystal malt. Tastes sweet burnt sugar and big bitterness, citrus, floral and resin. Medium-full, oily, fairly soft carbonation. Nice enough but too malty for my tastes really. It’s only 2 months old so it can’t be a freshness issue really. Still, it’s not something I’d ever get in the UK.

Cloudy golden with a big white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal and floral. Taste is herbal, grassy, grains and citrus
A unique but very good IIPA.

"this darker than average murky brew coats the glass and hangs around a bit. smooth, almost nitro-like. malty and quite bitter as well, with a unique hop profile compared to most IIPAs. well done

Bottle. Clear orange with white head. Aroma: fresh citrus hops, sweet malty caramel, grapefruit, slightly dank. Taste: grapefruit bitterness, citrus, caramel, some pine and a slight dank note! Alcohol well hidden with balanced body. Really nice!
