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.

Really heavy stuff. I find I am often dissapointed by things that proclaim themselves to be "american strong ales" but end up being watery and thin. This beer does not have that problem, its juciy, full bodied, sticky, and boozy...and overall I would say those are good things. However, it falls short of greatness due to a sour soapy finish in the hop profile. I am sure some people like that, but I dont.

At Sooogood (SG75). Pours in a tall glass. Initial malty sweetness with a hint of citrus that finishes with layers of hops- citrus and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle @ home. Nice amber color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly but leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly grapefruit. Taste malts, grapefruit, hops, hop bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Nice one!

gyllenbock (7229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2016
On tap at Revolution. Clear amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of hops, mandarin, caramel and warming alcohol. Also notes of medicine. Not that impressed by this beer.

j12601 (9526) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Huge citrus on the nose, sticky malt, pineapple. Medium bodied, smooth and not as sweet our sticky as the nose would suggest. Pineapple, grapefruit, malt and citrus. Slow sweet finish with sticky malt and slow grapefruit.

yourilevesque (1169) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2015
Dégustée en fût à Boston. La bière est ambrée et bien claire dans ma pinte. Le liquide est surmonté d’une épaisse toison mi blanche mi beige - crème brûlée. Je suis immédiatement déstabilisé par un bouquet très inhabituel pour moi. Le malt est si présent dans cette bière que je dois m’y prendre à plusieurs reprises pour m’habituer à ce qu’on me présente. J’ai tantôt l’impression d’une bitter anglaise à l’américaine, tantôt l’impression d’un wheat wine, tantôt d’un BarleyWine hyper houblonné. Cette bière appartient à autant de styles qu’on le souhaite. De la résine de houblon dans le mash avec une importante touche beurrée de diacétyle. Attaque grasse, amère, maltée... Aucun fruit, plutôt floral et longue en bouche. Une bière que je devrai absolument goûter à nouveau.

islay (2100) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2015
4 oz. pour during a tasting on 11-21-15. Bottled October 3. Thanks to falco242. Pours a mostly clear, hazy copper with beige head. Apricot, peach, and pineapple scents; very fruity aroma. Molasses flavor. Malty start; hoppy finish. Very dry in finish. Lively in the palate. Full body. Quite good beer but the flavor is too simplistic for it to cross into very good.

ElGaucho (2384) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bomber courtesy of Falco242. Unique aroma with dark fruit aspects. Tastes different than it smells. Really tasty. Almost too hoppy to be an American strong but has more American strong qualities than double IPA or double pale qualities. Outstanding.

MaBeer1972 (1710) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle from Vin Bin. Pours out a deep medium amber color with a frothy light tan head that settles to a medium lace. Big pine, earth and herbal aromas. Flavor is of muddle bitterness with a sweet malty backbone. Nothing mind-blowing, but very decent overall.

Pours clear mahogany into a snifter. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Tropical fruit and pine aromas. Thick with pine and caramel front to back. Medium length tropical fruit finish.
