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.

(bottle) hazy intense pale copper with small white head; aromas of stewed fruit, citrus, honey; balanced flavour with light long bitter finish; much milder than most imperial IPAs

12 oz bottle pours a golden amber color with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, and pine. Medium bodied with a bitter, dry finish. Somewhere between an ipa and a dipa

A very solid IPA, I agree with the brewers statement that it’s not quite a Double. Pours a hay to orange color with a nice whit head. Dry crisp, and citrus flavors dominate this beer. Very enjoyable and easy drinking.

The bubbles alone in this beer please me. It’s golden and has a sticky white head. The aroma is weak and citrusy. It’s thick bodied and coats the palate. It tastes like a sweet hop concoction. Prost!

piney aroma with lots of grapefruit 2 finger white head. quick dissipation. amber hay color. nice biscuity, malty front taste quickly turning into slightly bitter, piney hops. mouthfeel is nice. medium light body, average carbonation. hops stay on long after the malt notes are gone overall quite good. enjoyed quite a bit.

kevinsenn (1670) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Pours clear yellow with little head. Malty aroma with some hops. Tastes malty and citrusy. A decent brew, but not as intense as I would expect from a double IPA.

toffsbury (115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Very little head, surprisingly light in colour, slightly cloudy, head dissipates very quickly. Again there’s a lot of gar Fruit,. Wit a fair bit of malt backup. Not ver intense for a double ipa, flavor is quite malty, limited hops. There is a hint of bitterness, a bit of sweetness, and just a tiny bit of citrus. It is an acceptable IPA, but not what I expect of a double.

Decent flavor. Well balanced across the board. Color is light as is the flavor. Nice but not exciting.

BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Clear golden amber pour with an ivory (quickly fading) head. Sharp, dank hop nose, pine, maybe a hint of citrus ... a bit grassy. Faint raisin malty notes upon warming. Flavor dominated by the hops (mostly a bitter blast) but faint malty notes can be detected at first (I get a raisin crystal malt note). Medium bodied mouthfeel with medium carbonation (I’d prefer just a tad more). Not bad .. but lacks the ’wow’ factor of the great ones.

12oz bottle 9/14/11 (Binny’s Plainfield Singles Rack)-46° in Snifter-Pours a clear goldenish amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of hops, citrus, malt, and grapefruit. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and doesn’t come across as a Double but it goes down smooth.
