COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While there is a great malty foundation to this brew, Mike’s Double IPA showcases his appreciate for hops. In fact, he included seven different varieties of American hops, totaling over six pounds of hops per barrel. The hops add an intense floral and citrus aroma to this brew.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a dense off-white head. Aroma is massive hops - getting too astringent. Solid body, fruity and sweet, but it’s al just really a base for a massive and unrefined hop soup. Really crude and way too much. 100410

Bottle at Papsø. Hazy amber coloured with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops, pine needles, grass and fridge. Sweet and fruity flavour of hops, grape fruits and pine needles with notes of fridge. Dry hoppy finish.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Hazy light amber color; medium sized creamy head. Large hop aroma, but strange, with a vein of of butter, cream, phenols, sweat. Quite strong body, but the mouthfeel is rather oily; sweetish toffee flavor, with oily hops, powerful. Not refined, but satisfying when looking for hops.

Bottle purchased in a Las Vegas liquor store. Hazy dark amber beer. Malty and rich hop nose. Sweetish beer. Rich marmalade hops with a nice floral tone. Lingering bitter aftertaste. A little different this one and tasty!

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2009
Amber, cloudy, vibrant. Looks nice. Herbal nose with slight papaya...light orangey notes. Minty, tobaccoey herbal hops, start woody and dry. The malts in this one are toasty initially with some residual sweetness in the back. The problem for me is that as this one warms those sticky, chewy malts become dominant. The beer quickly loses all semblance of drinkability. Disappointing.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2009 12oz bottle–pours a rich light tan head and amber/copper color. Aroma is floral/herbal hops (cascade, Willamette, centennial?), secondary medium malt, then some pine, chemical. Taste is chemical/metallic/resiny hops with some bitter, secondary medium malt, syrupy mouth feel. This beer varies as I progress on both aroma and taste. And some sugary butterscotch (diacytl?). not crazy about. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for sharing. 091025rerate-12oz bottle-pours an off white head and cloudy copper color. Aroma is orange/lemon-citrus/pine hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is orange/lemon-citrus/pine/floral hops, secondary medium malt-caramel, some tannins. Thanks stevo for sharing. 3.6
