COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Newest in our line, the Double IPA is the big brother to our Jamaica Sunset IPA. Maltier, hoppier and more assertive, this one is for big beer lovers. Double IPA is one of the hottest new beer styles in the micro and regional beer market.

IndianaRed (2518) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Bottle Pours a fairly clear amber with a small off white head. Modest hop aroma for a double. Nice hefty malt body and fairly balanced with a bit of alcohol in the flavor. Just not very "Double"

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2007
bottle. Pours cloudy orange with pillowy ivory head. The aroma is mandarin orange, pineapple, pine, and sweet caramel. The flavor is fruity hops for a millisecond, then gets very piney. There is some malty sweetness at first, too, but the malts get toastier as it progresses. The finish is bittersweet with lots of pine resin. Bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Nothing special, but a solid IIPA.

Palidor19 (2966) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
This actually tastes more like a regular IPA than a DIPA. The hops aroma is more sharp piney than citrus like. Still it give off a good presentation.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours quite hazy and amber with minimal white head. The aroma has a very deep malt scent to it with fresh pine, light orange, and caramel. Hints of alcohol as well. The flavor is sweet piney malt with hints of orange peal. Very nice. Simple strong and good. Bitter but not crushingly so. Heavy mouth feel but bright on the tongue with a dryish aftertaste. Enjoyable.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a small head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and oily resin. A bit of balancing caramel and big tropical fruit taste. Heavily bitter to the point of astringency. Tastes reminiscent of Valley Brew Uberhoppy, but falls down somewhere along the way.

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert for sending me this one. Pours a pale golden amber body with decent size head. mild aroma - hoppy, caramel - nothing really standing out. Flavor is a hoppy mess of a IIPA, lightly bitter with a big syrupy caramel taste. Decent mouthfeel. Was not the hoppy citrusy IPA I was hoping for. Enjoyable but a failed attempt at a IIPA.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2007
(12oz bottle) Particulate-filled topped by a medium off-white head. Aroma is fairly tame, medium sweet, grapefruit/pine. Taste is sweet, fruity, grapefruit/floral/orange, some caramel, light alcohol. Resiny medium-full body.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Delicious!!! I haven’t had a IIPA in such a long time. It is sweaty hot out and it fits the mood perfectly. Got this beer in December and it’s still projects aroma. Very american hop aroma, sweet malt, orange, and toffee. Appearance is nice red/burnt-orange with creamy white head, but a little too hazy. Flavor is sweet malt, nice strong bitterness, a little banana, clove, and well hidden alc. flavor. Very appropiate full body. Overall a very well balanced, distinct double i.

morrdt (692) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle from Total Wine. Wow, this was an outstanding Double IPA. Poured a copper color with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus as well. Taste was slightly bitter, citrus fruits and malts. Alcohol was non existent. This will get you drunk.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Bottle. Ahhh finally a decent 2IPA. Been a while since I’ve found a nice hop-bomb that was done properly. This is a chinook and cascade heavy beer that is dry as sandpaper but fullbodied enough to make that okay. Decent looking too, clear and orange. Lots of smiles while drinking this one.
