COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A style of beer curiously born on the foggy shores of Father Junipero Serra’s first founding mission. Our own vigorous entry is one rebellious IPA, quick on the trigger, and brimming with a bounty of hop ingenuity. This is a big, bold, brazen beer, a restless vision of a new America.

Bouteille 355ml. Ambrée, col moyen blanc-cassé. Arôme met en avant un agréable bouquet de pin, note d forêt, plaisant sur un rétro agrumes; pamplemousse avec une dominance marquée de pin. Palais est houblonné, ici aussi, fort présent, huileux, rappel de forêt, houblons Chinook ou Warrior? Herbacé prenant, malt caramel tirant sur le crystal.

Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Moderately hazed light amber color. One finger of creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: This smells about the same as their regular IPA. Sugary and citrusy hops in the form of orange, mango, and papaya. Bready yeastiness. Caramel maltiness with a light toastiness. Booze is well hidden. 3.5 T: Sugary hoppiness and citrus mentioned above. Caramel and toasty malts. Bready yeastiness. Less bitter and more sweet than the regular IPA. 3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess and super smooth. 3.75 D: Pretty good brew. This has a bigger malty component that the regular and it makes it more balanced and smoother. ★ 738 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 09, 2013

bierkoning (11681) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle. Amber color. Oily hops and ripe tropical fruit in the aroma. Malty sweetish but especially herbal oily hopbitter flavor. Some Malty sweetness and fruity notes pushed back by the alcohol and hops. Nice though Not perfect.

355ml bottle at home. Clear dark orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with fruity sweetness. Pine, grapefruit, caramel, malts, spices and herbs. A powerful DIPA.

tomekk1978 (1164) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Aromat: cytrusy, zioła, kwiaty, owoce tropikalne trochę słodyczy, kwaskowości oraz niestety utlenienie. Alkohol natomiast wydaje się bardziej ukryty niż w IPA z tego samego browaru. W tle również herbatniki i nieco karmelu.

Wygląd: barwa złota do pomarańczowej, klarowna do zgaszonej. Piana biała, lekko zabarwiona, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość obfita i umiarkowanie trwała, ale ładnie oblepia szkło.

Smak: umiarkowana słodycz, raczej wytrawny charakter. Herbatniki, chleb, karmel, alkohol (tutaj już bardziej wyczuwalny) i chmiel. Niestety nieprzyjemne nuty anyżkowe czy miodowe także występują. Goryczka zdecydowanie powyżej średniej (po chwili już odczuwana niżej), wsparta przez alkohol. Jest ona owocowa, lekko drażniąca i umiarkowanie długa. Pełnia wysoka,choć nie najwyższa, niskie do umiarkowanego wysycenie i wyraźnie alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca przełyk końcówka, wsparta chmielem i nutą słodowo - kwaskową. nieco oleista konsystencja.

Lubię IPA, a Double tym bardziej. Niestety w tym przypadku zabrakło trochę słodyczy, a piwo nie było ponadto świeże, przez co nuty cytrusowe były wyraźnie przytłumione. Chciałbym doczekać czasów, kiedy trunki z USA będą dostarczane do Polski sprawnie i w dobrych cenach.

Benzai (11857) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, medium sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, hops, grassy and fruity hops. Taste malts, hops, again: grassy and fruity hops, perfect bitterness, some grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice, though it doesn’t have most of the typical Imperial IPA flavors. Lovely beer though.

DutchDrebus (5275) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle @ benzai. Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Smells hops, fruity, quite sweet. Tastes citrussy, quite bitter, fruity, fresh. The whole package. Medium to full body, nice crisp carbo.

BlazerT (359) - POLAND - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle. Teku. Light amber, clean with medium, semi-densed, white head. Nice lacing and head retention. Medium caramel aroma, light tropical fruits and grapefruit aroma. Taste is medium to high bitter with some semi-sweet malty profile- grainy, caramle. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is medium bitter and dry. In overall not the best IIPA I’ve drunk. It’s hoppy, higly bitter, high ABV, but in my opinion lack of nice hoppy aromas.

Piwo złote. Piana średnia. W aromacie słodowe, grapefruit, mandarynki, karmel i owoce tropikalne, chlebowość. W smaku podobnie. Fajna goryczka. Wysycenie niskie, wyczuwalny alkohol. Solidne IPA.
