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.

Most definitely worthy of all it’s accolades. It has a terrific pour with a touch of dark brown color with tints of gold, with a thick bubbly head. Carbonation right on point. The aroma was hoppy and somewhat citrusy . The taste was a little sweet with a nice bitter finish. Love this one.

Snifter at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured clear orange with off-white head. Lots of lace. Orange and tangerine flavor with a relatively smooth, bitter grapefruit finish. On the thin side, but not exactly lacking malt. Not so much of a double IPA, but good nonetheless.

Bottle. Clear orange with a avarage white head. Aroma is highly hoppy with oranges, apples, nice and fruity. A decent amount of caramel maltiness along with a slight touch of alcohol. Taste is rather like the aroma, but the taste is more malty and less hoppy than the aroma. A nice double IPA on the light side, but I would’ve liked to taste some more fruity hops. But very decent brew.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - AUG 6, 2010
After on about the 50th DIPA, most of these seem to fall into the same old same old, but this is a bit different. It is dominated on the front by the big sweet hop bomb/ honey falovors, but finishes clean and smooth. This has very little after taste that seems to cover the big boozy DIPA’s, and just finished clean and smooth. Very drinkable, looking for more.

coolfunnj (323) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2010
exceptional aroma of grapefruity and piney hops..just a hint of maltiness..good looking with foamy head pleanty of lacing and golden color with just a hint of orange..tastes great a load of hops more on the piney side i think than in the aroma bit still an qrange grapefruity quality..pleasant subtle malt sweetness expands as it warms a little..bitter palate smooth at the end refreshing and drinkable alcohol well hidden..overall..very nice and at 2.25 for a bottle a real bargain

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle, 12oz. A more or less clear beer, golden in color and with a small, quite cute, white head on top. Grapefruit and resin on the nose, not much room for the pale malts. A little orange peel touch too. Good bitterness in the flavor and finish, a bit caramel sweet flavor maybe. Orange, resins and a little malty touch. Full-bodied and slightly warming. The finish is bitter and with a good orange flavor. Nice, quenching and refreshing, dangerously easy to drink for a beer this strong. 100806

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Tasted 8/5/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden hue. White head. Aromas of grassy and piney hops. Medium to full bodied with a huge bitter, raw, green hoppy flavor. Mild cola effervescence and flavor undertone in the malt bill. But totally hopp dominant. Great bitterness and flavor. Nicely done!

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottled 7/22/10. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some pine, orange and dank notes. Very inviting. The flavor is mainly pine with some nice caramel malt notes. I also get some grassy and earthy hops and a tad bit of orange citrus as the beer warms. Medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is not the best Double IPA I have ever had, but it is very good and a beer that everyone should try.
