Double Strike Imperial India Pale Ale has been crafted to be very bitter, have a very high hop flavor, and high hop aroma. At the same time we have used our brewing and fermentation experience to craft a dry and malty beer. Please enjoy this when young for the best enjoyment of its novel hop and malt characters. Cheers!

Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque orange copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like hop resin, sweet grapefruit, dry pine, smooth caramel, and booze. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like hop resin, caramel, citrus, and woody malt.

On tap at the brewery. It poured a copper color with a tan head. The aroma was of orange, grapefruit and some pine. The taste was of bitter hops with grapefruit, lemon, lime and some pine. Very nice IPA.

"(cask) comes off as an average in every way iipa. restrained, well balanced. id like for the hops, and especially the aroma, to be a little more assertive in the doubles. nice fruity, citrus thing going on, just a little tame."

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Lightning ][ $1-2 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 7.19.14 ]
>> Clear amber orange pour, weak foam. Nose is sticky, nutty, stanky old fruit. Taste is harsh, salty, nutty, extremely papery. Some mango, big paper. No thanks.

Very clear orange, yellow, no real hop aroma, fair body, just bitter...that’s it just bitter.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
Almost clear, dark golden in color, topped by an off-white head of moderate size. Pine cones, resins and hop pellets in the aroma, some malty hints and orange too. The flavor is piney and resiny, mostly keeping the malts outside. Full body, lightly warming and full bodied with a long bitter finish. Nice and tasteful, well worth a try. 130817
