COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first Double IPA – dry, refreshing and hoppy. We really focused on hop flavor and aroma here. To maximize hop character, we dry hopped Dinner twice with over 6 lbs. of hops per barrel. For the best experience, please enjoy fresh as possible. Malt: 2-Row, CaraPils, Caramel 40 & Dextrose Hops: Citra, Falconer’s Flight, Mosaic & Simcoe.

16.9 oz bottle. Hazy golden orange with a splat and some edging. Nose is melon, musk, toffee, grass and pink grapefruit. Medium body with a soft sparkle. Taste is bitter orange, peach, pine, guava and honey. Lingering citrus peel. Great stuff. Like a bite of fresh fruit with a kick.

Ernest (6746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized to large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (melon), with notes of onion/garlic/asafetida, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Not enjoyable...big time oniony nose, probably caused by shitty ol’ Simcoe (Mosaic can smell like that sometimes too, though, but that’s probably what’s yielding the melon note). A drain pour but I still love my Clarky Bear!

3fourths (8634) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Lightly hazed gold with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma is pine resin, tropical fruit, stinky cheese, onion, shallot, doughy yeast. Medium bodied, moderately sweet, juicy, fruity, soft, velvety in the mouth. Nicely malty and rich in the mouth, not overly bitter, but muddled by yeast to make it duller than it should be. Nothing out of sorts here but it’s not very intriguing.

1300th rating!!!!. Pours medium orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus peels, pine resin, juicy tropical fruits, some dank hops, herbal notes, and grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long lingering finish. Overall, a excellent, world class DIPA from a brewer that continues to impress me.

Thanks Patrick! A surprise gift in a surprise box of treats. Incredible resiny nose. Maltiness subtly sits behind a cascade of hoppy bliss. The flavor matches the aroma. Incredible beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from thepatrickman-thanks for this long time want! Bottled 6/20/15 enjoyed 7/18/15 before Wilco show at Red Rocks. Deep orange yellow with thick slow fading head. Heavily perfumed floral nose with some resinous and light citrus elements. Dry and bitter, but balanced with piney, floral, and orange hops. Great balance, smooth, and alcohol well hidden but packing a punch.

Pours a clear golden with a thick white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has spicy/grassy notes, pine and grapefruit. Flavor has fresh pine...resinous...grapefruity and rindy. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry piney/resinous/rindy finish that warms a bit. Great floral and resinous hop notes...delicious.
