omhper (19930) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy reddish amber, small creamy head. Grapefruity nose where resin already comes through. Sweet with bold straightforward mouthfeel and solid body. The bitterness strikes hard and early, and reaches punishing levels. Meanwhile there’s notes of mango and cookies. A typical American macho beer with punk attitude.

14oz

Cloudy light amber color with small creamy head. The aroma is well hoppy, both fruity and resiny, and some toffee. Full bodied; the malt flavor is a bit too chewy, with caramel, toffee, quite sweet too; very strong bitterness, the resiny is mainly hoppy, piney, a bit fruity too.
Good, but just on the heavy side.

2012-08-10, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy amber color, creamy head. The aroma is nice, hoppy, very fruity. Good body, smooth and round; very good toffee flavor, with a touch of biscuits and chewy crystal malt; powerful hopping, resiny and fruity.
A bit heavy to drink, but gets an extra point for the high fresh fruity component.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head. S: Not terribly hoppy and quite sweet on the nose. Some bread and a fairly strong caramel malt smell to it with a bit of pine and grapefruit, some grass, too. T: The flavor is fairly sweet with lots of floral hops and a bit of grapefruit and orange. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of sugar. Just a touch of pineapple and pine bitterness. As it sits, the pineapple comes through more. M: The body is sort of light with a medium carbonation. O: I wasn’t terribly impressed by the nose, but the flavor was pretty nice.

Tmoney99 (11061) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy sour citrus and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Draft… Clear orange ale with a large, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma delivers tons of tropical fruit – pineapple, guava, mango and a hint of pink grapefruit. Full-bodied and fatty with tickling carbonation. The flavor provides heaps of malt and tons of juicy, citric, rindy hops – nods toward the bitter side of balance. Finishes with a lingering grapefruit rind bitterness.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Not sure if this is the same as he had it as the ’Double Trouble Pilsner’, but I’ll use this as a place holder just in case. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness, floral, and toasty. Tastes of the same floral and toastiness with some caramel and citrus in the end.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear medium amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy notes, caramel and tropical fruits. The taste is very tropical with notes of mango, pineapple and canned fruits. Pale malts as well. Medium-full bodied with lingering bitterness. OK... not my favorite.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2008
Tap at Blind TIger. Beautiful amber-orange colour with a thick creamy sticky head. Aroma is very much like fresh cereal, sweet cookie dough/biscuity malts with notes of wildflower honey. Aroma is also lightly floral and fruity. Some orange peel, grapefruit and more sweet honey. Very low on cohumulones giving it an extremely soft but lingering bitterness. Quite fruity, but not the usual C-hop combination. There is a fairly berryish sweetness and a light herbal quality as well. Seems barleywinish in the way that the sweet cookie dough malts seem to dominate the hops. An unusual take on the IIPA style.
