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.

Poured a hazy golden color. Small white head. Light bodied, unusual for a double IPA, not as much hop character as a double IPA. Citrus, light pine. You would never guess this to be almost 8.5 percent. This is a very drinkable beer. Not your typical DOUBLE IPA but still very good.

Die_Kapusta (190) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2010
Pours in a bright amber color. Cream colored head. Smells of caramell, citrus and fresh hops. Very well balanced. Can sense the caramel malt and perhaps a bit of centennial hops. Long bBitter finish. Delicious!

Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, grass and some floral undertones. Taste is sweet with muted bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle at Bar & Cigar in Oslo. It poured a clear yellow liquid with a medium sized dirty white head. Smell and taste of fruity hops and passion fruit. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation. This one doesn’t really feel like a DIPA, more like a weak DIPA. I would have wanted allot more bitterness and hops.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Pour is a surprising light amber (expecting darker) with a solid tight head a minimal lacing. Aroma has a nice mixture of malt and hops which smell of caramel and grapefruit (little dirty). Taste is crisp gritty citrus and spruce with a little orange peel. Palate has a thin yet creamy feel with a decent dry finish (refreashing). I enjoyed this one, even though I was expecting a darker appearance.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clear pale yellow with long lasting white bubbles. Nose is funky, mango, pineapple and honey. Taste of bitter melon, cracker, juicy citrus, marshmallow, with a sweet palate linger of more juicy citrus fruits.

Sammer (1036) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Golden pour from bottle shared by Mora2000. Big hoppy aroma. Taste is peppery, with notes of pine needles and citrus. Finishes with a nice, not too big bite. Solid IPA and one I would drink again for sure.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
12oz. bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Poured a slightly hazy gold with two fingers of white head. Fragrant with citrus and piney hops. Also a fair amount of caramel malt in the aroma. Nice malt base with a good amount of hop bitterness. Not overly aggressive with the hops. Plenty of caramel malt to balance. Dry finish from hops, malt lingers a bit. Very drinkable despite the abv. Very fresh example.

Really nice. Poured super clear light amber with a thick white head. Not a huge aroma but nice fruity with a little malt. Leave a nice sticky feel on the tongue. Not as hoppy as I would expect. Reminds me a lot of Dales but with a more citrus but malty flavor with a good bit of alcohol bit at the finish. Might have poured it a little warm, but couldn’t wait to try it. BiG Z in LI.
