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.

Excellent beer. The appearance is deceiving as it looks like a witbeer but the taste is lovely with a slight hops, slight doughy flavor.

Had this bottle towards the end of a long night. It’s a golden colored beer with a nice white head. I don’t consider this a double, cuz it taste more like a stock IPA. It’s pretty much cookie cutter taste with a decent amount of hops of front that give you that pine and grapefruit flavor and enough of a sweet malt backbone to hold it up. It just doesn’t have that bite i am looking for from this style of beer....

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is bursting-at-the-seams with juicy grapefruit. Additional components of pine needles, apricot and tropical fruits. Medium-bodied with very active carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Zippy citrus and piney hop bitterness; pale malt and biscuity sweetness. Crisp, snappy, grassy finish. Nice PNW-style IPA.

BroSpud (1825) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours golden with a white head and decent lacing. Very surprised to find that this is considered a DIPA. Flavor and feel of a basic IPA. No alcohol taste despite a hefty 8.2 but also not as much of a hops presence as advertised.

cfrancis (2672) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
Pours a golden brown with a white head. Aroma is sweet hop and malt. Taste is quite sweet for my liking. Still a good amount of hop taste and bitterness although it tastes like a weak IIPA.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 2, 2010
A nice take on a IIPA. This one is almost an entry-level beer but one still enjoyable for those already entered. Strong full hop aroma (not light like some say here...), appearance is that of a pils, almost like a double extra pale. Good beer.

TheOldKid (46) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours to a clear gold color with a thick heady foam. Aroma is a subdued floral and grass. Taste is light bitter, and light sweet. Not what I’d expect from a Double IPA. Palate light body with a thin texture. Lively on the tongue and mild bitter finish. Overall not what I expected. Much softer and refined than a typical double IPA. Pretty good, just not what I would have thought.

Pours clear golden yellow with white foam head. A very clean, crisp IPA with floral, citrusy aromas, lightly bitter Delicious beer.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a mostly clear gold with a one-finger thick off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pale malts, straw, apricots, and sugar. Flavor follows suit pretty closely, with plenty of mixed fruit and sugar. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good DIPA.

12oz bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is loaded with dank hops and citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavors of bitter hops, pine, citrus, and some malt. Finishes bitter with a little malty sweetness. Pretty good IIPA.
