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

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2009
On tap at PP C’Bad. Pours deep amber with a thin offwhite head and good lace. Smells very sweet and caramelly malty, slight cereal, not much hops. Tastes malty and sweet up front, very sweet. Hops build after the sip and mimic an alcohol burn in the throat. Medium/full body, good carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 Boy! You really really need to let this beer warm up to get it’s full explosion of flavor. If you do that, wow! Really fabulous flavorful double. Heavy duty and has that English Thumper personality.

Tmoney99 (11804) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquor. Poured a clear copper color with a average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where met.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2009
Dark amber with a rocky light tan head. Citrusy aroma but also some sweet caramel malt. The bitterness on the flavour remind me, at first, of extra strength cough lozenges. Not in a bad way, mind. I swear there are medicinal flavours skulking about that remind me of Fernet Branca. Thick, caramel malts kick it off with a tinge of sweetness and then the bitterness and all sorts of stuff rolls in. Well, this one won’t be accused of not having body to carry the bitterness.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a clear amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of pine, malt, and fruit. Flavor is malty, pine, citrus, faint sweetness. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!
