COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Perfect Storm Double IPA celebrates the rich traditions of brewing in the Northwest. The perfect storm of six different hop varieties combine to create a substantial ale with a clean finish. A proprietary blend of regional and European barley malts balance the hop bitterness while allowing the hop flavors to dominate.

Reid (2028) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2015
22 oz bottle from Trader Joes in Salem OR $7.49 2015 vintage with 8.7% alc. Clear orange coloured ale with a large thick and creamy creme coloured head. Great fruity, mango and peach aromas mixed with fresh spruce..very nice. Taste similar to aroma but getting more malts..and a very bitter after taste. Good mouth feel,,,,smooth medium body medium to low carbonation. A very nice beer.

Pours a sharp golden with an orange tint. One to two fingers of off-white head. Nose is herbal and piney with some sweet resinous citrusy notes and toasted grain on the back end. Resinous and piney with some citrus rind and a grainy toasty malt character. Medium bodied with some sharp alcohol.

onceblind (5156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Hazy burnt golden with a thin sticky white cap. Big hoppy nose with grapefruit rind and pine resins and floral, fresh whole come hops. A touch of melon and mango of the aroma too. Big bold and full flavor with plenty of lemon rind citrus, bitter pine, and hop resins all over the place. The malty body is just sweet enough to warrant it, and doesn’t intrude on the resiny bitter leafy and floral tones and pine flavors.

Beaver (1407) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2015
22 oz bottle, 2015 version. Pours hazy golden orange with a medium fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is some caramel malts and lots of tropical fruits and piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel / crystal malts with some tropical fruit and piney peppery hops with a big harsh bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice DIPA with a bit of a harsh finish.

AirForceHops (4070) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Guest tap handle at Cigar City. (Yes, had everything from the house). Orange gold color with head that vanishes after a few minutes. Aroma is grapefruit, tangerine, and sugary dried apricots. Pretty good malt bill to back up the hops but no fooling here, its heavy on bitterness. Lingering grapefruit and pine, deep bitterness. Almost on the harsh side. Has an oily/ hop oil texture. Bold.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish tan color with a moderate frothy off white head on there. Nose has some resin and hints of floral notes. Taste is a bit sweet up front, but has a nice hoppy butterness to it. Pretty good.

Bomber. Tropical fruit hop aroma with notes of grapefruit citrus as well as light pine resin. Pours light amber colored with a large soapy white head that doesn't stick around long and some lacing. Starts with sweet tropical fruit flavors as well as grapefruit citrus. Finishes dry but surprisingly smooth for the IBUs with light pine hop bitterness. Good stuff.
