COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!

22 Oz: not the lift or balance for me. A little green and lacks what I’m looking for in a DIPA.

Âmbar translúcida, espuma amarelada de boa formação e persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma lupulado tendendo para o caramelado e herbal. Paladar de médio amargor e leve dulçor. Corpo e carbonatação médios, transparece os 8.2%. No aftertaste aparece mais o resinal, álcool, amargor médio persistente. Gostei, mas achei desequilibrada.
