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.

[2914-20100618] 355mL bottle. Heavy pine resin hops aroma. Clear, medium orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter resin evergreen hops flavour has a long bitter aftertaste. Medium-full body. Wow, great bitter.

golden with large white head. firm bitterness before citrus hop flavor that is too understated with a lot of crystal malt flavor that diminishes the hop notes. disappointing, especially from this very good brewery

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2011 Sampled on draft at Smokiní Joes in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was strong grapefruit and pine with notes of orange and sweet malts. The flavor was strong grapefruit, pine and orange iwth sweet and tangy malts, moderate bitterness, light sourness and a long hoppy finish. Fairly full bodied. Exceptional.

Bottle from SL. Where are the hops? This dIPA came across overall as an average IPA. Aroma of grapefruits and pine, seemed to start out ok. The flavor though, was far too light on bitterness and had a residual caramel and peach/light fruit sweetness that "balanced" things out too much. The body was also on the weaker side of impressive. A nice summer dIPA (not too thick, hot, or sticky for sure), but only because Iíd rather an APA or IPA that time of year, not cuz it was a classic. Priced right for what it was.

drowland (6148) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2010
7/9/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. With a somewhat vigorous pour you get a dark golden brew with a big fluffy white head that laces and hangs around pretty well. Big piney and floral aroma with a hint of citrus zest. The flavor is much milder with a big malt sweetness followed by sweet hoppy citrus and leafy greenness. Not too shabby.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Pours a clear honey orange with a thin but stable layer of white head. Aroma is a mixture of bread, soil and spruce. Flavor is balanced; a mix of spruce, caramel and mild wood and raisin. Body is creamy yet light with definite carbonation.

6er from Caponeís. Pours canary w 2f white head. Nose is peachy, with mango, hopcitrus, malt. Tastes fruity, with peach, mango, hops, and mild black peppery notes. Fairly rich and complex.

gormanb (173) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2010 An all around great IPA. This beer is not too strong or too light and can be great on a hot or cold day, or even as a session beer, which canít be said for many IPAís. The 4 varieties of hops and 3 of malts come together nicely to create a sweeter piney start and a hoppy finish with a tiny hint of citrus.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 8, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2010 This reminds me of Stone Ruination a lot (and itís 40% less in cost?!). The pour was pale golden with a smallish head and very little lacing. Nice robust citrus aroma. There is a lot of flavor in this thing. Itís like you scooped out the pulp from some genetically engineered grapefruit/orange/peach fruit and plopped it into your most. Also some notes of toastiness and caramel. The hops also had notes of pine and herbs. Rerated somewhat lower as Iíve now had this from 3 separate sixers and itís a bit inconsistent, sometimes getting a bit too sweet and herbal.
