Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy light amber with a decent creamy near-white head. Aroma is very perfumy to my snoz. Med body. Damn but it is floral. With of course a decent mildly roasted caramel backbone. But it is incredibly floral. So itís not exactly bitter, and that caramel sweet is detectable, but itís certainly hopped all to heck. Itís suggestive of a rose petal, but thatís probably not what the floral is. Thereís a lot going on in this, and I think it gets a little citric/resin as my tastebuds and nose get used to the floral. Amazing. I think Iíve never had anything so floral at the start.

bottle shared by murphym45 - I was a little dubious about this one, but it was surprisingly tasty. Amber copper pour, with pillow, fluffy head. Arouma is sweet, maple syrup, piney, grapefruit, sweet caramel body, touch of oxidation. Resinous hops, but wet finish, juicy fruits. Alcohol is well hidden

Bottle from the brewery. Pours amber, almost ruby, with a very light haze and a medium beige head that laces a bit. Very nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and pine, grapefruit, and hints of caramel. Taste is very hoppy but there is enough malt to balance it out. Piny hop bitterness on the finish that lingers. A very solid DIPA, and a great value!

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy amber color; medium sized head, compact. The aroma is still very nice, fruity; then comes a strong, mellow aroma of brewing cereals; unexpected, but pleasant. Good body strength, caramel flavor, lightly soapy; strong bitterness, still some hop resins, but no fruits. Strong and long final. Solid brew.
Unfortunately, another bottle that I maybe spoiled, keeping it too long (since Oct í09 till July í10), waiting to share it...

swoopjones (6214) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2010
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. light caramel copper color. medium hop aroma, not getting that typical MA buttery taste/aroma. taste is medium bitterness, kind of light for a DIPA. Balanced but lacking the needed hop BITE, IMO

Maybe i souldnít review a couple of DIPAís in one night, just saying...Nice deep amber pour, little head, but than again, I have been sitting on this for a bit and not quite sure how it ages, thanks Dmangtr for the beer. Overall a fan, i love Dipaís, but this was just a big boozy ass-kicking to my sobriety, i felt drunker and drunker the more i drank. Big malts, big hops, and finishes with big booze. This may not be the best review but my bad. Good luck, good beer.

Middle Ages Double India Pale Ale is a hazy amber ale with a big, fluffy, off white head that has really good retention. It leaves nice sip lines on the glass. It has a green, leafy aroma. It smells like hop pellets. There are notes of hay and orange peel in the nose. Itís pretty full bodied and smooth with a dry finish that leaves the tongue a little chalky. Itís peppery and resiny tasting. The leafy, green bitterness is pretty strong and it lingers a little after the swallow. Thereís not really any sweetness here. Yeah, itís a double IPA and thereís nothing wrong with it but if someone was looking for a double IPA I wouldnít recommend this immediately.

Aroma is floral, hoppy, fruity. Light on malts, heavy on hops, much of what would be expected from double IPA. Strong in alcohol. Nice after taste. Definitely have this one again.
