COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just can’t get enough of those hops. IPA’s 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.

Bulk_Carrier (3635) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 Out of the bomber and into my snifter, it poured a beautiful hazy orange and left the same color body. A half centimeter white foamy head concaves gently into the body. The smell had rich fruity notes up front with hops backing it up very strong. Malts were more subdued. The taste was pretty much the same. The palate was about a medium with some slight sharpness on the tongue. At 8% for the ABV, the alcohol was fairly hidden well which lead to fairly sessionable beer. Overall, this would be a hop forward double IPA, I liked it more the second time I had it.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Piney cologne seeps into orangey fruitiness in this slightly chalky, sandy Double IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty orange.
-Bitterness is not overdone at all.
-Alcohol doesn’t show up much in the flavor profile.
-Hop profile lacks clarity for the style.

Bottle.

MacBoost (1738) - Penfield, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle from Willeys Store, VT. No cell reception there’s so I couldn’t look it up. Big notes of pine, some Tylenol. Bitter with little tropical hop expression. Average at best.

Smells rindy and malty. Nice Orange gold color. Taste of Orange and floral hints though out with nice resin pine hop bite. Feel the warmth of the booze in your stomach. Med body nice carbonation. Nice DIPA. Keep them coming rock art.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (67) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
650ml bottle Pour is orange/amber in color. Head is small but lingers. Aromas of caramel and roasted malt combined with nice pine scents. Sharp bitterness is offset by the underlying fruitiness of oranges and sweet caramel. Not an overly complex beer, but if hops and bitterness are your thing, this is for you. Expect IBU count to be higher than listed 80. ABV of 8 also offset nicely. Drink anytime, no need to save for special occasion.

Franckg (1120) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Robe brune orangée légèrement trouble. Col de mousse blanchâtre dense et épais. Même chose pour la dentelle. Arômes de pin, citron, orange sucrées, malt légèrement terreux. Effluves de poivre et zeste de pamplemousse. En bouche, malt, orange, léger caramel. Touche de fruits exotiques amers. Un peu poivré, Arrière-goût de pin et baies sucrées. Finale longue et amère sans être trop sèche. Taux d’alcool élevé plutôt subtil. Ne réinvente pas le produit mais intéressante.

Bomber to glass, amber hue with huge thick lasting eggshell white head, good lacing, smells caramel, earthy hop, some citrus and bread, medium body, some pine, smoothed as it sat, minimal lingering bitterness, alcohol well hidden

puboflyons (3065) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 26, 2015
From the 650 ml. bottle. A cloudy copper-amber pour under a moderate cream colored head. The aroma is of roasted malts but more so the resin, and floral hops. The body is medium to better. The alcohol sneaks up on me. Or maybe it is because I had a light lunch. Roasted malts and modest bitterness to finish. Smooth.

veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Au nez, houblons épicés, herbacés et un cote sucré est présent. En bouche, c'est amer, beau grain et sucré aussi. La finale est moyennement longue, amère et assez sucrée. L'alcool est bien dissimulée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear orange, med white head. Aroma is earthy hop, caramel, citrus, pine, bready malt, mineral. Flavor is caramel, med sweet, lasting bitter pine. Sort of musty, earthy.

Dark tan pour with a modest head. The label is leafy and attractive. An excellent aroma cheers the nostrils - full and sweet, with flowers and pine. The taste is mostly dry, with a grapefruit peel taste standing out the most. Very good.
