COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale. Our double IPA is a hop lovers dream. Citrusy and clean with an incredible finish.

jgb9348 (4985) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Super light, golden coloured body with a bright glow and a nice thin off-white head - nice! Aroma of pineapple, fresh light hops, pine cones, grapefruit and a good amount of sugars. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong chunky feel with a heavy dose of piney and grapefruity (cascade?) hops. Aftertaste shows some more complexity with malt, sugar, pineapple and some other light fruits noticeable. Overall, a good Imperial IPA, showing the strengths of the style, while losing some of the craziness - this is 8% and only in twelve ounces. Shows good character and complexity, but still has a lot of body for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 04-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2010.

12 oz bottle from xocoatl via trade, thanks! Pours slightly hazy light golden in colour, with nice decent white head, leaves some good lacing. Aroma and taste are dominated by floral, earthy hops, but itís not overwhelming. Just a hint of alcohol here. Pretty good!

islay (1378) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2010
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-15-10. Pleasant, floral, perfume-like, hops-dominated aroma features grapefruit, peach, pine. Not particularly strong smell. Some dryness. Pours an effervescent, pale gold with a large amount of uneven, cream-colored head. Produces nice lacing. Juicy, vegetal, mineraly taste. Green apple, cardboard, white grape juice, grapefruit juice, cheap white wine, and mineral water flavors. Something unpleasant in the finish: Dirt, metal, compost. Tastes like a puddle at the bottom of an unexplored cave (but a little better, Iím sure). Light to medium body. Easy to drink (too easy). Insubstantial in the palate. This is more like a regular IPA or even an APA than a DIPA in its flavor and its lightness. It did not at all live up to my expectations; a disappointment. I cooked with the last 6 ounces or so.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle, sampled at Sorbon, Bromma, Sweden. Pours out in a clear dark golden colour with a small white head. Resinous and piney aroma with notes of lemon-zest and blond grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied with clean notes of grapefruit, grass, resin and Seville oranges. Quite streamlined mouthfeel. Really bitter finish of grass and grapefruit.

Hangover (1087) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Murky golden pour with a nice and creamy white head. Very hoppy aroma. Medium bodied. Resinous hoppy flavor, pine and grapefruit. Spicy finish I wasnít expecting. Lingering hop bitterness. This is a pretty straight foward and tasty IPA.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Bottled 355ml. Ordered at www.erzbiershof.ch. Grassy, peppery nose which is reminiscent of quince and fresh cut grass. Surprisingly dry and peppery with a very dry bitter finish. Flawless and rather pleasant.
