COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Double Pale Ale with juicy citrus hop flavor from Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo and Chinook hops. We started with the idea of doubling-down on our Iron Fist pale ale recipe, made a few tweaks and ended up with this great beer. Although the name says otherwise, we recommend one at time.

22oz bottle. Bottled 12/5/12. Consumed 12/9/12. Nice resiny hop nose. Tropical fruit hops, and an interesting biscuity malt profile. Clear red / orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Smooth, light carbonation. Creamy, dry texture, bigger body. Nice pine notes. Juicy hops. Grassy and dank. Some kiwi, pineapple, light grapefruit. Maybe even little mint. Good light bitter taste. Nice resiny bready aftertaste. At first I assumed this was basically an IPA based off the sound of it, but this is something different... Unusual hop flavor here.

@ Jake Melnick’s Chicago. deep amber colour, short lived head with no lace. On the nose and on the palate, this beer is a delicious hop explosion, tons of grapefruit and pine, with an aggressive bitter finish. So good!

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bomber. Poured clear medium orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up orange meat and zest plus peppery notes over sweet caramel and light biscuity notes.. solid. The flavor found orange meat and caramel at the core with peppery notes and spruce laced throughout.. finished grainy with more pepper and orange extract. Medium-plus bodied with an ok feel and flow through the palate.. spicy.. good overall but not great.

arkurzynski (1482) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle thanks to motortoddhead! Thanks brotha! Deep copper, almost brown. Great piney/grapefruit nose with background onion/garlic, caramel malt, and faint berry. Flavor is a semi-sticky caramel malt interwoven with pine, grapefruit, and light onion/garlic. Nice dry bitter finish with grapefruit/citrus zest. Medium-ish+ mouthfeel. Somewhat creamy, from the hop abundance. Great stuff.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was white and reduced relatively quickly to a thin film. Balanced malt and hop aromas; caramel, cereal grain and citrus fruit mostly. Medium bodied and slightly sweet.

Vir4030 (496) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours a clear light reddish brown with a thin head on tap at the tap room. Aroma is sweet and sharply hoppy. Flavor is an immediate attack of alcoholic citra with a bit of a watery throat. Mellowed down the glass.

jhamp9 (1021) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Clear copper pour with a nice cream colored head. Aroma is fantastic. Smells like a handful of hops. Piney, earthy, spicy, and citrusy with some malt in the background. Taste is resinous, piney, spicy, and citrus rind. Lingering bitterness. Very good beer.

JMerritt (1770) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Dark copper with a small white head. Spicy hop nose: pine, grapefruit rind, leather, a little bubblegum. Moderate bitterness that slowly grows, finishing dry with some rye bread and caramel sweetness as it warms in the tail end.
