COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he choose. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A provocative 85 IBUs reverberates cleanly through this Double IPA. True hop saturation from kettle boil to dry hop cellaring dominates this elegant and lustful sensory enchantment. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 19.2 Plato, now 9% ABV following the always 100% natural bottle fermentation. Luscious English Maris Otter malt is the essential heart of this voluptuous double IPA. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy now.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Aroma is pine, citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit//berries, mild sweetness, hop resin, malts and a grassy/bitter finish. Well crafted IIPAs this good are not a dime a dozen.

Bottle to snifter. Light kumquat flesh color with a thin but clingy white head. Decent lace. Aroma is a delightfully dank tropical fragrance. Citra "fuel" up front but lots of tropical fruit smells. Taste is pretty nice. Same tropical fruit flavor but distributed in a layered and complex way throughout the taste. A sip of this followed by a sip of water makes me think of Juicy Fruit gum,. Light bodied with a dry finish. Again, pretty freaking nice.

12 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku. Bottle shared by pmoney and also opened another bottle bottle two weeks later. Both equally as delicious. A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger height of white foam forming on the pour. Some soapy and splotchy lace is left down the glass. S: Grapefruit and orange bursts of citrus with a nice piney undertone. A little bubblegum sweetness with sweet bread malt body. T: Mango and orange. Lemon citrus with pineapple. A lot of tropical fruits going on. Marmalade sweetness with some light bitterness. White bread malt sweetness on the finish. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet and fruity with a clean finish. O: Delicious. So well balanced with a great mouthfeel. Fruity and sweet with a piney undertone. This is a top tier DIPA. Serving type: bottle

beerbaaron (922) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Clear orange. Medium creamy white head, partially lasting. Alot going on in the aroma, balanced hoppy, some sweetness, citrus/grapefruit, touch of tropical, lemon, pine. Flavor is much the same. Not a ’hop bomb’. Full flavored medium body. Balanced bitterness, super smooth finish. Very easy drinking IIPA, but maybe a bit too astringent?. A safe, but well-done beer. Quite different from the others Ive had lately.

Aroma is a nice pungent resiny citrusy scent. Taste is grapefruit and citrus upfront, a little piney resiny taste in the back round. Actually very well balanced for a big hop bomb. Very solid double!! Glad I have 7 bottles left!!

Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Smells of resin and malt. Tastes of citrus hops with bitter finish. Good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
