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. Light amber with a fading white head. Aroma has grapefruit, dishsoap, peach, oranges, pine. Taste has a very little biscuity malt, oranges, a touch of peach and firm bitterness. A little pepper along with various citrus flavours in a dry and quite bitter finish.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellowish color with a big pillowy white head. This is the only area this beer is really missing. Aroma was amazing. Grapefruit, very earthy, spruce, pine and hops. Flavor really exploded. Hops, hops and more hops. Pine and floral up front, some hop bitter in the aftertaste. Malty backbone. Some donít like this beer, thatís good, more for me because this beer was great.

A fresh hop and citrus aroma. The hops are floral with herbs and eathy undertones.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2011
12 oz. Bottle - Pours golden/orange with little frothy head, some lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, yeast, sweet malt, and hops. Taste is what you would expect, hoppy; but actually not too terribly sweet. The malts definitely take a back seat here and given the somewhat medium body and regular carbonation and lighter mouthfeel you would never expect this beer to be over 8%. I never realized this was actually considered a double given the non-descript packaging (no mention of ABV) and the very reasonable price for a 6er (10.99). A very good bang for the buck beer.

zosoV1 (12) - USA - JAN 27, 2011
Great hoppy smell, very warm and alive. Appearance was a bit thicker than most IPAs. Taste was smooth for a double IPA. Very comparable to a hopslam without mass amounts of honey. A bit too much bitter at the end, but for 8.2%, very drinkable and tasty.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours gold with a thick off white head that lingers for quite some time and laces nicely. Very nice citrus hoppy aroma, bit of grapefruit, some pine, along with a light but noticeable malt note. Medium bodied and surprisingly smooth, more hop flavor on the palate with enough malt to keep it balanced. Bitterness on the finish is fairly subdued. You get just a hint of alcoholic warmth on the back of the throat, but definitely doesnít feel like itís over 8%. Perfect when youíre looking for something thatís a bit more flavorful than a standard IPA but not quite as overwhelming as an imperial. Flavorful but still very drinkable and even refreshing. Without a doubt better than their standard IPA.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle... Poured a vibrant, golden/yellow with a thick white head, lots of lacing along the walls of the glass. Citrusly hopped nose, maryjane-like. Nicely dry, clean, popcorn, grass, and pine notes. Hops had a lot of citrus. Straight forward, but well made for sure.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Citrus, pine, some lighter tropical fruity notes as well as light pale/base malt. Pours light golden, thin bubbly head, light lace. Good clarity. Flavors of pine, citrus, light apricot/peach, base malt, light malt sweetness. Lingering piney flavors and light resins. Nice drinkability for style. A pretty solid beer IMO.

BVery (8075) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 Bottle. Crystal clear yellow pour with minimal head. Nice citrus and pine hop nose. Sharp citrus hop flavor and a dry finish. Quite good.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Tap at RNH. Very pale golden pour. The nose is softly fruity. A kiss of very light spiciness over the top along with a bit of light honey as well. Moderate hop aroma. The flavour is surprisingly fruity and soft. A little bit of malt sweetness up front right away before the hops really catch you by the back of the throat. Assertively hopped and actually quite bitter. A little bit of cotton candy sweetness up front. Itís pretty unusual. Initially sweet before the hops slap you back to sense. Becomes more aromatic as it starts to warm up. Fruity and citrusy. Quite unusual.
