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.

This poured a clear golden-orange. The head is rather thin but leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma has a strong floral hop character. Iím gonna go out on a limb and say this has some serious amounts of Simco hops to it. The taste has a strong brussel sprouts-like hoppy flavor, which I always get from simco hops. The body itself is medium-light and there isnít too much complexity. The aftertaste, however, also has a semi-sweet cakebread esther. This makes the aftertaste a rather pleasant experience though the actual aftertaste does not linger very long on the palate. Overall an excellent double ipa.

Sweet citrus hop aroma with a light amount of floral. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Sweet and bitter beginning with a sharp bitter middle fading lightly in the finish.

I love these hop brews where the aroma of hops twiks you in the nose as soon as you pop the cap,aroma settles to a piney citrusy hopping,a little on the soft side,some bready malting,taste is sweet malting and that combination of hops with a mix of pine ,citrus and herbel textures. Little hint of finishing alcohol. Lighter ,very drinkable Imperial IPA, nice to get something like this in 12 ozers

KornDogg (525) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Tried both bottle and on tap at brewery. Preferred on tap. Subtle pine aroma with a golden, yellow body. Thin head that laces the glass. Flavor is that of an IPA with a little more flavor and alcohol content. Flavor begins sweet and is made up of pine, citrus and hops. lingering bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

12oz bottle from Andersons in Toledo. Yellow-gold pour with and thinnish off-white head. Big aroma of citrus, vegetal and grass hops. Taste is a crisp caramel sweetness mixed with grain and the grass hops. A little one dimensional - but the dimension is good. Sharp carbonated medium to light texture. Very drinkable.

Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Powerful hop aroma, mainly juicy citrus. Nice bitter hop flavor - but didnít have the strong bite of a double IPA. The 8.2% ABV is well hidden.

12 oz bottle from a six pack purchased at Jonathan Ron. Poured a mostly clear orange body with a small to average sized bright white frothy head. Aroma started off with some serious hop notes, pine and grapefruit rind, grains and then some tangerine and slight peach. Full bodied with a quickly fading aftertaste, average carbonation and just not enough bitter bite for a DIPA for my taste. Flavor is nice and smooth with lots of up front cereal and bread followed by citrus rind, grapefruit and oddly enough some bitter lemonade notes. Very solid but give me an Unearthly any day.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear glowing straw golden color with a smaller fizzy frothy white head. Aroma of stinky hops and biscuity malts, light citrus on the backend but mostly stinky dirty hops. Flavor of light biscuity sweetness, green stinky dirty hops, finishing with some lemony citrus and longer harsh bitterness, some lemon, and gritty grainy biscuit. Medium bodied, well attenuated, fairly dry, spritzy softer sharp carbonation. Has some weird green minty like flavors that linger. The price was right, thatís for sure!

Lime dominant aroma with some grapefruit peel. Immaculately clear golden, thick head, noticeable lack of carbonation, good lacing. Solid malt backbone, lime and grapefruit. Grapefruit peel finish, alcohol noticeable. Fairly unique.

Somewhat comparable to Two Hearted, but with more alcohol, a little less sugar, a little less hops, and a little thinner palate. Good hop flavor, with a bread/cracker malt flavor as well. Very well hopped.
