Proud to announce the recent brewing of our Summer Seaonal, the Double Bubble Imperial India Pale Ale. We loaded our mashtun with as much grain as possible and then added copious amounts of honey along with twice the hops. It smells and samples like heaven.

Dark golden color with plenty of swinkles and fish food floating about. Tallish off-white head, that is rather lasting. Green, grassy hops, light honey and caramel, and a hint of citrus in the scent. No real faults to be found in the aroma, which is an accomplishment. Bonus point for that. Flavors are less favorable than the scents. Sweet dough flavors with a grassy and sour grape backdrop. Finish is really rough with an astringency that I really want to rinse out on memory. 5/11

10/25/15. 12oz bottle brought down by my folks. Bottle dated first week of February, but they had just bought it.... Amber pour with a small khaki head. Floral aroma, light citrus, caramel, alcohol. Bitter flavor, a touch astringent, floral, citrus, caramel, doughy. Not that bad considering the age.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have decent citrus hops, grass, earthy, pale, lightly toasted malts, moderate bitterness, this one was less of an imperial Ipa than the Gamma Bomb ipa we had the same day.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear bright copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and honey aroma. Medium body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

12oz bottle, thanks to Paul & Jamie. Shared. Mostly hazy orange golden color, with lots of particles in the body. Thin white head. Some bits of lace. Up front, bigger bitterness, with a very dry finish. Minimal to no sweetness. Citrus, peppery spice, nice touch of honey. Certainly hop forward, almost has a hop bite to it, very aggressive. The big dry character sort of impedes drinkability though, as if itís putting on the brakes as it goes down your gullet. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Certainly a hoppy beer, but ultimately just too dry to drink. Would probably be way better with some food.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured light yellow, hazy, big white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus fruit combined grain. Taste is sweet but hoppy, los of citrus fruit, some malts in the background. Very easy to drink, not bad at all.

On tap at World of Beer, Wauwatosa, WI. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit rind, and wet grass. Taste is hop-forward with grassy and piney bitterness but is very balanced with a sturdy and sweet malt backbone. Good overall.

Graze, Madison, draft. Beautiful looking beer. Like a summer sunset in a glass. Mellow taste for a DIPA. Apricots maybe? Very good, but maybe a little, slightly soapy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle into pint from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Hazy orange appearance with a sticky beige head that lingers. Nice, fresh aroma of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, pine, grass, flowers and earth. Similar flavor, medium to heavy hop bitterness with a little bit of malt and honey sweetness. Medium body with light dry, lasting finish. A very slight boozy taste develops after it warms up. Still pretty good, though.
