COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just canít get enough of those hops. IPAís seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

Hazy orange brown with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is super sweet and orangey (like orange soda). Taste is very malty and pithily bitter with fruity English yeast character, and metallic English hop bitterness into the finish. $4.15/22oz

Dorwart (2389) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Decent head from a somewhat mild pour. Light carbonation. Lots of hoppy goodness in the aroma with some pine, roasted grains and caramel malts. A hint of grapefruit in there also. Color is a cloudy copper orange. Moderate bitterness in the flavor with some more caramel malts, grapefruit pith, grainy notes and some herbal notes. Kind of dry and pasty. Finishes dry and hoppy with a lingering citrusy bitterness. A decent IIPA.

alexanderj (3334) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle; poured a clear-orange amber with a smallish off white creamy head. Aroma of chewy caramel, fruit, earth, citrus and some sweetness. A prett well balanced and tasty version of the style. Good caramel base with some fruit, earth, citrus and sugar. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Overall some good balance and clean tasting flavors.

Poured an almost clear copper color with a large off-white head. Dirty hop aroma with a sweet caramel malt base. The flavor was sweet and malty with a sweaty hop taste. Long hop flavor. Very long pine bitter finish.

On tap at Bukowskis, Cambridge MA, 30 October 2009. Ginger colour. Pretty much as expected - piney and resinous hops throughout. Also citrus/orange zest. Bitter-sweet feel. Not a whole load of malt backing. Maybe a little one dimensional but itís a dimension I can appreciate. Didnít have quite the overall presence of a top rank Double IPA but no denying itís tasty, drinkable stuff. Donít know how this varies from their other Double IPA but my notes for that date back to 2007 and I canít find them right now anyway.
