XXXX IPA is a non-traditional American IPA with a brilliant copper color and the classic citrus nose of Cascade hops. This beer demonstrates a unique balance of malt-inspired, delicate red grapefruit sweetness and lingering hop dryness. The OG and final Alc./Vol. provide the structure and body to balance the harmony of distinct flavors.Cascade, Warrior,Summit and Glacier hops are used for bittering and Cascade hops are added for dry hopping after fermentation. This hop blend is well balanced with malted wheat, pale ale, crystal, and caramel malts. To full enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This beer pairs well with Cajun dishes, blackened fish, and BBQ. XXXX draws its name from the British brewing convention of using X’s to denote style. 70 BU,s, 1.092 OG. 22 Plato

Nicely hopped, but heavy on the malt as well. Hop flavors were dank, pungent, a little citrus. Full bodied beer with a bready malt characteristic. Overall a different double ipa than your typical American style. Definitely worth trying.

Slight hazy dark amber pour. Aroma is musty malt. Taste is sweet caranel balance by bitter hops. A bit to sticky for my liking.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Aroma: Malty with some citrus and floral notes. Appearance: Hazy orange/red with a thick but small off white head. Flavor: Malt, alcohol and spicy hops. Palate: Full bodied with a long bitter finish. Overall: The profile seems more like an aggressively hopped barleywine than a DIPA. Very nice beer just seems out of style.

Very nicely hopped! Also very well balanced w/ malt character. Spices and fruit flavor. Very strong, but the high abv is nicely masked. Shipyard came up big w/ this one!

Unde (346) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Cloudy orange and somewhat brown looking beer with quite minimal head. Scent has roasted malts, some resin or dried plums and piney bitterness. Interesting nose feel. Taste is dark, very dark DIPA. Some dried plums and whole pineforest bringing bitterness. I wonder where are all the citrus flavors? Somewhat sweet DIPA, strange but good.

I really like this one -- an unusual (D)IPA. Cloudy copper pour with grapefruit aroma. Initial tastes are sweet malt. Quite robust body, and great malt flavor topped with hop grapefruit notes. Bitterness is barely present, dampened into submission perhaps by the overwhelming malt body perhaps. Just really nice, smooth, and drinkable -- yet 9.25%! Sweet and balanced -- I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - APR 30, 2013
Amber red body with a generous tan head. Aromas of earth, citrus and toast with a hearty malty body. A bit of dark fruit character and a slightly syrup like body with a nice amount of hop bitterness to balance it out. The alcohol content is well disguised without a notable solvent character. Overall, an enjoyable Shipyard brew.

Pours a clear copper from the bottle with thick cap of lazy tan head. Aroma of funky west coast hops and a caramel pale malt back. Taste follows with a nice boozy burn on the way down. Solid, good job on this series so far shipyard.
