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.

Thanks to iNBe for this. Again New Glarus produces a product of quality. The hops are more floral in this IIPA and at the end is a crisp, tart note. Much easier drinking than it should be. Serving: Bottle

"Tropical fruit and candied grapefruit abound. Pretty bitter, but not overly so with some earthiness and pine and lots of sweetness. Full bodied. Now Iím confused. I thought unplugged beers were a thing of the past, and thumbprint was in the now, but this was fresh. Thanks to Heybeerman for the trade. I think this is the best iPa or pale Iíve had from them."

Great IPA, but not the best Iíve had. Certainly better than anything I had at New Glarus when I visited the brewery, but donít get too excited for this.

TXBadger (1385) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes: Pine and citrus on the aroma, poured a nice golden color with white head. Light on the palate with piney grass and citrusy notes. Finishes almost sweet.

Bacterial (1552) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle that I forgot about in my fridge for a while. Surprisingly still enjoyable! Clear amber pour, lots of white head. Nice hop nose, though perhaps a touch stale. Quite drinkable, dry finish - nice bitterness as well.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 From memory. Had this June 2011. Probably was the first double IPA outside of a beer festival and 90 min. Tasty but nothing amazing. Iíll rerate if they make it again and I can get some.

travita (3954) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, white head, and golden yellowish in color. The smell is super hoppy, so good. right up in your face, citrus. The taste is the same, pine, fruits, citrus, bitterness, and a big hoppiness.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen. Pours a orange golden color with two finger of thick sticky foam. Nose is pine, honey malt and citrus. Palate follows with a heavier grapefruit punch, big grassy bitterness and a heavy round malt sweetness that balances the bitterness nicely.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a half finger head and good lacing down the glass. Smells of citrus with lots of yeasty tones. Starts off with some citrus and grapefruit. Just a touch of bread then finishes pretty bitter and dry with a grapefruit pith flavor. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Pretty good. I enjoy the grapefruit flavors although Iíve had a few that have done it better. Still recommended though if you can get it.
