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.

Christmas tasting at the Kernel. Cheers to Leighton for this one! Clear amber beer, small pale tan head. Light dry palate. Lovely rich toffee malts with piney hops providing good a good counterbalance of bitterness. Dry finish with a carbonated sting. Bitter linger. I wouldn’t normally expect so much malt in a US DIPA but it works very well here.

fiulijn (15371) - 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.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. An off-white head of two-finger size sits on top of a clear, dark golden body. The aroma has a cheesy touch, pine cones and orange peel, as well as a solid malty backdrop. Some alcoholic notes too. Slightly warming on the palate, full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a good bitterness in the flavor, with some caramel maltyness, citrus peel, pine cones and a cheesy hint. Long, bitter finish with a citrus peel touch. Not my favorite DIPA, it’s too cheesy, else it’s pretty nice. 130821

Clear deep amber-copper color, good creamy off-white head. Grainy-hoppy aroma, lots of citrus. Medium-bodied. Some fruityness. Hops tasted first like German! Then pine, lemon. Interesting hop profile.
