COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Dobbelt IPA er en amerikansk inspireret, mørk ravfarvet øl med et flot lyst skum. Bryggeren har valgt at tørhumle denne IPA under gæringsprocessen, så den har fået en stærk og kompleks humleprofil af Cascade, Chinook og Centennial humle. IPAen har en meget fyldig krop, som er både blød og kraftig i smagen med en meget bitter eftersmag - et resultat som skal opleves. Kan drikkes til krydret mad, men står bedst alene.

English: The Double IPA is an American inspired, dark amber beer with a beautiful light coloured head. The brewer has chosen to dry hop this IPA which adds to the full and complex hop profile of Cascade, Chinook and Centennial. The IPA has a very full body, with a soft yet strong flavour and a very bitter finish - the result has to be experienced. Goes with spicy dishes, but is best enjoyed on its own.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 30, 2013
Gently hazy dark amber ale covered by an everlasting white cover, endurant indeed for a beer of this size. Intense aroma feels as malty as it is hoppy. While the dry-hopping has faded more than a little, there remains plenty of floral, citrusy, oily resin aromas. On parallel, estery fruits and butterscotchy diacetyl fit nicely in, hinting at upcoming sugariness worthy of any English Barley Wine. In mouth though, it is not as simple. The resinous hop character is strong enough to greatly attenuate the sweetness sensation, that’s almost a miracle considering the initial fruit candy and caramel attack. Despite being probably almost a year old, it maintains a certain freshness, hops have been preserved nicely enough and their bitterness certainly is all there, cutting through the malt’s toastiness swiftly. Round and almost suave mouthfeel. Very malty, even by Danish double IPA standards, but that may be why I enjoy them , when crossing the Atlantic, they just can’t compete with fresh IPAs that have not suffered the same travels. Might as well make them different and more complex in their own right.

Royal Bank Plaza LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a hazed reddish gold colour with a thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma is citrus, grass, and tropical fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is grapefruit, oranges, caramel, and grass.

bunget (610) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear light copper body, medium beige head, ok retention, tons of lacing. Aroma of rye bread, malt caramel, rotten fruits, honey and corn. Taste is aggressively hoppy: wormwood, herbs, a touch of orange candies, malt. Too aggressive, not a lot of flavour.

yourilevesque (231) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Merci à mon ami David-Samuel pour la généreuse hospitalité. Bière ambrée offrant une généreuse mousse et une fière effervescence émanant du fond du verre. Arômes on ne peut plus délicats et quasi-absents de fruits tel la pomme verte. En fait, la bière dégage tellement peu d’arômes qu’il est difficile de dire si ça sent quoi que ce soit. Peut-être cette bouteille était-elle éventée? Il est vrai que du dry-hop outre-Atlantique est un sérieux coup de dés... Le mouthfeel est ce qui retient l’attention, bien plus que les saveurs. Le tout est résineux, collant, pâteux. Ce n’est pas très plaisant. Les saveurs sont à peine houblonnées et non pas un houblon spectaculaire ou amer, mais un houblon qui rappelle vaguement la fleur d’oranger mais entièrement débalancé par ce mouthfeel qui occupe vraiment tout l’espace. Pas très intéressante à mon avis.

Metalchopz (2562) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a creamy-bubbly off-white head that has great retention and beautiful lacing. The nose is really not what I expected. Lots of cereal grain and hints of nuts. The taste is where the hops appear, and even that is not as grassy as expected. Metallic notes, but not as bad as most beers that have this. Good bitterness that lingers. Is this really 9.2% ?? Goes down too smoothly. Different than most DIPA, and not in a bad way.

500 mL bottle. copper amber pour, light haze. medium semi-creamy off-white head, some lacing. Aroma of caramel, resinous hops, fruit. Tastes sweet malt, and resin mostly, some grapefruit. Decently long bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.

jksipa (487) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy orange amber with a small off white head that recedes quickly to a ring leaving sparse lace. Nose is toffee with resin, alcohol and light floral notes in the background. Light sweet toffee support a quite bitter grapefruit and pine that lingers through the finish. Body is medium+ and sticky with soft carbonation. Malt doesn’t quite support the bitterness.

mcberko (8723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
500mL bottle, pours an opaque orange amber with a large beige head. Nose is very fruity, with piney hops and stone fruits. Flavour is wonderfully fruity, with piney hops, tropical fruits, citrus and dry crackery malt. Quite a lot of body without being too malty. Quite bitter and highly drinkable. Excellent stuff.

cfrancis (2672) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Pours cloudy dark gold with a small white ring. Aroma is grapefruit and earthy hop flavours. Taste is a nice dankness with grapefruit and earthy hop bitterness that is above average. Great beer.
