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.

pours a clear orange color with little head. lot’s of citrus hops in the nose. taste is hop punch of citrus flavors and bitter. almost a bit spicy even. not a bad double IPA but certainly not the best.

This one is for strong bitterness lovers. If you’re looking for complexity, it is not for you.....L’olfactif présente des conifères, des agrumes et des fruits tropicaux. Également du pin, du cèdre, de l’ananas et du pamplemousse. Un nez assez standard, qui ressort bien. Le visuel est doré / ambré, légèrement flou, avec une bonne mousse écumeuse, dense et au long maintient. De bonnes traces sont visibles sur le verre. L’attaque est tout en amertume. Des résineux piquants et amères. De bonnes notes de gomme de pin, d’épinette,; très tranchantes, avec un soupçon de gazon. Les fruits ne sont pas beaucoup présents cependant. En bouche, elle présente une bonne texture, mais elle manque un peu d’équilibre. Tout est dans les houblons. Pour les amateurs de grosse amertume. Friands de complexité, ce n’est pas pour vous.

Hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, and maybe a little strawberry. Flavor starts very sweet for an IPA, then finishes with some fruity bitterness. Not as complex as a lot of the double IPAs out there, but still a fine beer.

This one poured a darkish orange with just a bit of golden hue. A moderate head of tan foam that fell slowly and left lace. Nose is faded a bit but still lovely. Citrus and floral hops. Softly bready malt with a touch of brown sugar on it. A ripe orange and some earthy grapefruit peel. Light pine on the nose. Taste follows the nose. The citrus is bountiful and juicy. The grapefruit comes forward as the beer warms and so does the malt. Medium - light mouthfeel which tells me that if this beer has faded off it was once near west coast IPA style of malt. Light earthy pine some woodiness and this drinks very well. The bitter is perfectly acceptable to the fruitiness in the beer. It does not exceed the other flavors but it does last a bit into the aftertaste and pleasantly I might add. A soft bit of caramel is creeping onto the palate as it warms making it drink a bit heavier as it does warm. It’s good. With a freshness date on the bottle, it may have been very good but because there isn’t one, I rated what was in my glass.

Bottle.
Appearance: Hazy amber to brown leaning body with a foamy dense light tan head.
Aroma: Slightly orange and grapefruit with biscuit, caramel and general malt sweetness. It smells like an American Barleywine that’s sat too long.
Taste: A little bit better on the taste, still malty and barleywine esque. Biscuit goes through with hints of caramel and orange/grapefruit. Bitterness is mild.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Not bad or offensive, but certainly nothing I would recommend to a customer. It’s a generic imperial IPA that borders on either being too old or too malty. Not bad, but not good.

Cloudy copper color with white head. Sweet citrus pineapple aroma with some pine. Sweet malt start with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Some grassy notes. Finish is grapefruit and resiny pine. Really nice brew.

22 oz. bomber bottled gifted by my neighbor after a Vermont ski trip. Pours an unfiltered burnt orange complexion with thick fluffy head and lots of floaties. Clean pine aroma. Bitter hop flavor with pine. Intended as a hop punch in the palate.

Decent IPA. Nothing special, was hoping for more of a bite to it that wasn’t there. Possibly an old bottle? Was expecting much better, slightly disappointed.
