COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique double IPA takes the style’s origins a step further. IPAs were born out of making an ale that could sustain a long voyage. For our take, we were inspired by the indomitable Capt. James Cook whose 3rd voyage made him the first to navigate a treacherous route from England to New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest. Using Cascade hops from each of these regions we created a brew that’s citrusy, earthy and full of bold character.

HKdIPA (227) - HONG KONG - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle from QClub at home. Deep copper pour with thin foamy head. Slightly musty piney hoppy aroma with lots of candy sweetness. Taste is similarly piney hops with an unexpectedly thick/slick palate for a DIPA. Very bitter finish. Not bad - especially for the price.

Love IPA’s, but this one did not appeal to me. Too sweet, the malt gets lost, and there is some sort of spice overshadowing everything else. Too complicated, too much alcohol, just not a good taste.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Bright amber color, hazy, with generous compact head. The aroma is strong and nice, a bit fruity and sweaty, lightly herbal (thyme and heather). Syrupy and oily mouthfeel; moderately sweet, with caramel and crystal malt flavor, hint of nuts and vegetables, strong bitterness. Elements are it cohesive, the result is not fully pleasant.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours a darker amber color with slightly off white head. Lots of flowery notes, grapefruit, and just a hint of pine; all follow onto the palate. Finishes very earthy, with almost a peat like aftertaste, interesting.

Koskela (284) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
The aroma from this brew is floral hops and maltieness with a red amber color amd a small white head. The taste is malty sweet lotsa hop flavor and a good touch of bitterness. Its a well balanced trio. The bitterness comes in the aftertaste. Its a medium/heavy bodied beer with decent carb. For a dipa not too bad. I would think there would be a bit more of a sweetness and a full body but worth a try.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2014 Out of a bottle. Strong bitter hops. Some burnt/malt flavors and hints of lemon. A good level of carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

KevinfromNH (11) - Concord, New Hampshire, USA - APR 7, 2014
Overall a good DIPA, my only gripe is that it starts to taste syrupy as it warms. Kind of a cloying Christmas lollipop sweetness.
