COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer encompasses everything we love about Double IPA’s. HOPS. We used a simple two-row base malt as a vehicle to bring a burst of hops to your palate. A healthy dose of Chinook, Simcoe and Citra is the reason we love brewing this beer.

For a double IPA, this was fresh. I knew when I took a big whiff. Freshy. Nose has some hops in it. Flavor isn’t standard DIPA fare. Hops first, malt second, hops to finish. This is how I like my double IPAs. This is some fine shit. Up there with the Sculpins, though not really. But close. Lovin it.

Draught @ the brewpub, Miramar. Aroma has sweet pineapple notes and tropical fruits. Flavour has gluey notes, pineapples, tropical fruits and mild cereal tones. Too sweet.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub, San Diego, CA. Pours a golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of juicy fresh fruitiness, biscuit and white grapes. Flavour of crisp juicy bitterness, orange marmalade, herbs and grains. Medium bodied. Alcohol is rather well hidden. Great.

Pours clear orange with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts, hops, grass, citrus, pine and resin. Taste is hoppy, sweetish and caramely with some citrusy and resinous notes. Finish is crisp, hoppy and caramely with some resin and pine. Fresh and hoppy. Good.

Ibrew2or3 (7515) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2015
22oz bomber pours with a near clear gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up soft cantaloupe, thin grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine with some malt sweetness. The taste delivers a nice blend of pineapple and grapefruit and bitter tangerines. It becomes only faintly juicy with malt sweetened hops before a firm level of hop bitterness takes over. Pretty solid brew but the bottle I just bought isn’t in the best shape.

joeneugs (4341) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 7, 2015
On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is onion and garlic stank with some grapefruit. The flavor is the same. Pretty oniony and spicy with lighter garlic notes, good pale maltiness with hints of honey. A bit sweet with some minor tropical fruit notes. Clean. A bit full bodied and a tad sweet for my tastes, but otherwise very interesting and tasty.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and tropical fruit flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and tropical fruit lingers with light pine and light caramel.

Bomber to cervoise. Pours clear gold. Dissipated head with good lacing. Aroma of dank, pine, grapefruit, slight caramel, slight onion, floral, grass. Taste is same. Mouthfeel is syrup-like. Caramel finish with deep hops and some onion. Besides that it’s really good.
