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.

Bartzilla (565) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 23, 2014
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.

joeneugs (4111) - 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.

(En fût à la brasserie): Version cask w/simcoe: Mielleux assemblage céréalier arrondi par une résine collante. Toute une texture moelleuse vers une finale sèche appréciée.

euniceradio (140) - Colton, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
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.

Can. Pours clear gold with a white head. Grassy, piney, and citric hops, moderate bitterness, mild sweetness, and some lingering spicy hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.

presario (4894) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Refrigerated bottom third of the bottle tastes just as good in the morning as the top two thirds did late at night. Amber. Foamy. Strong hop scent does the work and wafts towards you. Beefy without syrupiness. ABV in check. Lots of hops. Well done.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cloudy golden with a fluffy white head and a floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a crisp moderately bitter finish. Well-balanced with lots of flavor

Sample at the Bistro’s DIPA-festival 2015. Dark golden with a white head. Hoppy and fresh with citrus, grapefruit, resin, mango and light cookies. Bitter but not an extremely bitter one.
