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.

A nice beer ends a bit thin and watery. Carmel melon and very light hop bite. Candy like. Thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle pours clear straw gold with small head. Nose is piney, grassy, resin, orange, citrus, onion. Taste is similar with nice modern take on the classic west coast profile, resiny pine and citrus, strong but a bit more restrained in the bitterness, bright grassy lemon, clean malt, and floral fruit finishes it up.

DuffMan (9016) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Can. Hazy orange body, lasting off white head. Big, fresh hop character, lots of sweet young perfumey pine, citrus peel, mango, spicy nuances. Lots going on with hops here, so fresh! Lightly sweet malts, just the right body to keep this drinkable. Lasting bitterness, amplified spiciness in the finish. Excellent.

A bottle that is at least 6 months old, so was not expecting much from this. How wrong I was! Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth but has decent fine carbonation. Soft malts, mildly sweet. Very good hop spice, juicy orange and grapefruit. Sweet pine in to mildly sweet tropical fruits. Light finish. Good spicy hop linger. Lovely stuff and astonishingly fresh hoppy for it’s age. Would love to try one of these super fresh.

Won this bottle in a photo contest along with some SA swag. Pretty cool. The beer however is just ok. Should have just smelled it all day.

On tap at Brewers Unleashed - Chicago. Pour is hazy golden with a small foamy white head. Notes of biscuit malt, bitter hops, caramel, orange citrus, and slight booze.

Bottle from Whole Foods SoMa, San Francisco<.i>
Hazy golden color with generous head. A symphony of hops, they have a strong resiny and dunk character, piney, quite fruity too; smart choice of pale malts for the background; very moderate sweetness; quite fresh too.
Very drinkable, excellent.

Tap at Watering Hole. Thanks for sharing Eric. Glowing, hazy gold with a big fluffy white head. Big tangerine and grapefruit aromas on the nose with some lemon zest and light tropical fruit notes. Average carbonation with a medium body. Hides the booze very well. Fruity and bitter on the palate with the hops as the showcase. Finishes bitter with lots of pith and citrus.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, bright golden yellow color with bright straw colored edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle with streaks of soapy lacing coating the glass on the way down. Floral, slightly earthy aroma with some grassy pine and resinous buds along with a touch of citrus and a pale malt backbone. Could use some more fruit sweetness adding to the subtle grapefruit and pineapple character. Some bread, biscuit and light fruit esters along with grainy crackers. Fuller end of medium body with a slight creamy texture and a crisp spicy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. Some piney bitterness with dank buds and spruce tip. Not to dry or sticky but has nice lingering bitterness countered by subtle hints of tart grapefruit, sweet pineapple and zesty lemon peel. Could use more of a tropical/citrus sweetness and the malt backbone slightly hinders the hops with biscuit, grainy graham cracker, bread and light fruit sweetness. There’s also some boozy heat in the finish slightly taking away from the hops but the high ABV is decently masked making this strong beer pretty easy to drink.

Draught at the taproom in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy citrus flavor, grapes, caramel, biscuits, herbal notes, some hay. Hoppy orange flavor, citrus, peach, grapes, citrus notes. Good DIPA.
