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.

Nephilium (1592) - Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Nice clean hop aroma, pours a clear amber with a full white head. Moderate hop presence, with just a touch of malt backbone. Very full bodied, with a lingering hop presence. Not the full bore hop bomb I was expecting, but a very solid beer.

j12601 (8700) - 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 (896) - 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 (1837) - 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 (2339) - 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 (1582) - 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.

thornecb (5116) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2015
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.

dutch23mp (310) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Extremely well balance brew the aroma is perfect although the appearance is nothing special. Taste is wonderful and the high alcohol content is masked very well. Recommend a sniffer glass to really enjoy this well crafted brew.
