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.

Bomber from Antioch Fine Wine. Pours orangey copper with a white head leaving drops of lace all the way down the glass. Aroma has citrus, resin, pine and garlic with faint caramel. Taste is of pineapple, oranges, sweet caramel and cereal grain, with a tangy garlic/onion component. Very chewy and resinous. A bit rough. Finishes long and bitter/herbaceous. Tasty. Many layers showing throughout the glass and emphasized at different points.

22 oz. bottle, thanks to Chalumeaux! No bottle date. The hop character is hear in the aroma but it also has a lot of caramel. Way too much caramel. The flavor is orange marmalade, melon pulp and again a lot of sweet caramel or crystal malts.

Body is fuller but the sweetness just takes over. The hops are just over run by a sweetness over load.

Bomber 2016, drunk 7/24/16.
Big, off-white head recedes quickly to a ring. Clear, deep amber.
Smells like C-hop and lots of specialty malt.....Uh oh. Yep, floral, bitter, grapefruit, orange rind, grain, iced tea. Pretty much all of the things that made me hate IPAs back in the day. Thank god brewers arent making this crap any more.
Intensely caramel-heavy and full of grain, toffee and thick honey. C hops galore, with astringent bitterness, stewed hops, vegetal notes and lingering light sourness. Clean, at least and not punishingly sweet or anything, but what would ever possess someone to want to brew this stuff any more. Let’s all just move on from 2006.

Chalumeaux (1008) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Poured from bottle thanks drfabulous dated 2/2016 dark copper color with a nice head. Aromas of grass grapefruit caramel malt and bread. Taste is a malty bitter bomb that lingers. Not good.

WillRunForBeer (2194) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2016
I can’t decipher the date code, but it’s from 2016 at least. Pours reddish copper brown with an off white head. Aroma is dank, caramel. Smells like old double pale. Flavor is caramel, molasses, grassy bitterness. This must be old. I’m not convinced that this was stellar when fresh, but it’s pretty bad now.

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

Benzai (12760) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016
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!

j12601 (9549) - 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 (1228) - 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.
