COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big and hoppy and pleasantly bitter, Doozy is a Double IPA crafted for hop lovers by hop lovers. At every stage of the brewing process, we saw another chance to add more coveted Citra hops. The result is a medium-bodied, deep-golden beer thatís knock you back bold from start to finish. Did we mention the hops?

Very predictable double. Decent fruit noise with a hop palate. It had a sweet flavor and dry finish. There was citrus fruits with ís but if a resin mouthfeel.

A pretty good DIPA. Well balanced with tropical fruit and citrus hops. Bready base and caramel touch.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a hazy orange with a thin head, the aroma has quite a bit of citrus fruit and tropical fruit and the flavor is much of the same, pretty nice citrus front end, has kind of a thick mouthfeel though, not bad.

12 ounce bottle shared by jackl. Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, mild citrus hops. The taste is citrus, vegetal hops, caramel malt. Medium bodied, lingering sweetness, off balance.

BOSSbrewer (2679) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle at home with Susan. Pours a dark amber/orange. Large off-white head. Aroma is strong citrus - mostly grapefruit, and lots of sweet malt/toffee. Flavor is very bitter citrus - biting into a grapefruit rind, and lots of malt. Didnít seem smooth and balanced, though. Bitterness was too high for the flavors. Drinkable, but didnít really enjoy it.

bhensonb (12295) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from ReedM. Pours hazy orange gold with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty citra. Med+ body. Caramel is a bit heavy, but the hop can handle it. Finishes citrus rind with somewhat sweet malt. Very frontrunner.

brokensail (12757) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Orange pour with a white head. Light haziness. Aroma has some decent orange peel and pine to it, but lots of caramel malt and bread. Some floral and grapefruit notes, too. Flavor is too sweet for me. Lots of orange and caramel. Toasted bread, some grapefruit, and a light pine and grass bitterness.
