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.

355ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves good lacing. Grapefruit and pine hops mix with caramel malt in the aroma. Pine hops introduce it, with strong grapefruit coming in to follow. These give way to strong caramel malt in the mid-palate, which gives it some body. Pine hops reappear in the finish. This is a decent beer, with a good balance between hops and body. It could do, however, with some more interesting hops flavours. Itís not a bad beer by any means, but it doesnít really stand out from the crowd.

CelticBrew (801) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Poured from 12oz bottle a mostly clear orange body with a small to average sized bright white frothy head, that stays in the middle. Aroma is hoppy, piney, resinous, caramel, citrus, apricot, grapes, toasted malts, light berries. Flavour really much of the same, strong grapefruit, pine and orange, again apricots, tangy malts, moderate bitterness, light sourness and a long hoppy finish. Really excellent DIPA, my go to beer when visiting my In-Laws in Baltimore.

Nice double IPA, poured from a bottle, medium golden color, nice IPA taste and a bit of an IPA aftertaste, good combination of everything ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a huge white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is nicely sweet with an overriding bitterness that is nicely balanced. Medium mouthfeel.

"Melon and lots of citrus on the nose and on the palate. Not light, but lighter than Maharaja (which followed) and GKnight (which preceded). Just the fact that this was a 12 week old bottle (older than both of the other elites by a large margin) and it still held itís ground deserves kudos. Fairly long shelf life it seems, though Iíd bet itís even better relatively fresh. Want to try it within a month one day."

Pours a bright and clear straw yellow. Lots of carbonation wi th a lacy head. Faint lemon aroma with malt. Citrus hops flavor and bitter follow-through on a mostly clean palette.

Pours clear golden. Vanishing white head. Slight citrus grass aroma. Taste is indistinct bitter followed by sweet malt. Too sweet for my tongue.

Golden color with white head. Biscuity malt aroma with grapefruit. Flavor starts out caramel malt with citrus and pine finish. Slight bitterness that doesnít linger.
