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.

scarletfire65 (1323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Crystal clear, golden to light amber color, small frothy head. Aromas are mainly floral hops, maybe a little bit of tropical fruit in the background. Medium bodied. Aggressively hopped, but with some serious caramel maltiness to back it up. I don’t usually appreciate this amount of sweetness in an Imperial IPA, but this is very nicely balanced and seems to go back and forth between hop bitterness and sweetness, then finishes very cleanly and crisply on the bitter side, with some complex hop flavors developing - apricot, citrus, pine. All in all not much to set it apart from a crowded field of good Imperial IPA’s, but not bad either.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Pours a clear straw color with a thin white head. Floral, citrus aroma. Not very bitter at, except at the end there is a slight bitterness. This beer hides it’s 8.2% ABV very well. A very balanced beer with good hop flavor without the alpha acids. Finishes very clean.

trevor211 (1601) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Clean is right. Pours a very transparent honey amber, with lots of citrus hops on the nose. A bit of a caramel malt counter, and this is something of a dilute effort - I’d really prefer something a bit more full-bodied. It’s tasty, though, and a good one from ST - and it finishes really clean. I’d imagine this is a fantastic summer sunny day brew.

Grovlam (4206) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle. 35,5 cl. Large white fluffy head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Light cloudy dark amber color. Aroma of mixed hoppy notes, peach, pineapple, citrus, mild floral. Over the palate came light caramel, hint of toasted malty notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Light lingering bitter hoppy finish.

6 Sickly sweet hoppy aroma, biscuity 2-row malts too.
4- RIch orange, small persistent head.
6+ Really sweet biscuity malts, big fruity hops, quite fun.
4 Full and sweet, but fortunately not sticky.
14 Had things like this a hundred times, it’s just another silly hop-ade. But damn, this was quite fun, and covered the alcohol quite well.

Svesse (7764) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2011
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, pine needles, passion fruit and papaya. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of pine needles, tropical fruit (passion fruit, mango, papaya), grapefruit and lyché. Generous citrussy bitterness in the finish. Rather clean malt profile. More than medium body, slightly sweet. Very nice.

Pours a light pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is really nice with strong hoppy and citrus, hints of pinnaple. Flavors of nice strong hops, again like the aroma, citrus and pinnaple. Nice carbonation, not to strong, and very refreshing. Great Ale

Great IPA. Wonderful blend of "hops" and flavor. Golden color. Golden brewing from Southern Tier.
