COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beyond the Gates Double IPA is for those of you who have been enjoying Seven Gates Pale Ale, and are ready for that next step. Itís brewed with a generous dose of Cascade and Centennial hops that mingle with the sweetness of Belgian caramel malts to yield a full-bodied ale. This assertive ale balances a rich malt flavor with a pronounced hop character. Beyond the Gates is finished with a generous dry-hopping of imported hops resulting in a very aromatic and flavorful DIPA.

Not bad, but definitely not a great IPA. Very little hop flavor IMO. Iím surprised that it was a double IPA

Solid double. Nice citrus hop nose. Medium body, maybe on the heavy side. Palate has a bit of bite from the alcohol. -Fish!

Typically 2XIPAs are more orange, this came out looking very yellow. Nice hop scent and big hoppy mouthful. Decent.

Draft at Tattooed Mom. Poured an unusual cloudy white amber. Only slight fizzy foam for a head. Finding some yeasty dough notes at the nose. Tasting some bruised lemon juice. Sugar cane. Straw. Interesting mix of hop notes. Dry citrus. Looks slight but has a decent medium body. Nicely dry at the finish. Started this without knowing the style. Thought it was a full wheat beer with some blonde ale qualities. Not seeing this as the billed double IPA much less an Imperial IPA. Still quite nice and way too drinkable. Very surprised I liked this beer so much.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Served on-tap in the Tasting Room. This one has been dry hopped with some kind of hops. A - Pours clear orange with a small white head leaving minimal lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of fresh citric hops, topical fruits and some sweet caramel malt. The dry hopping really helped this one out. T - Starts off with a mix of ripe tropical fruit and fresh citric hops. Caramel malts help break up the bitterness just enough to keep me interested. Finish is bitter with some lingering sweetness, doesnít stick around for very long. M - Slick body with plenty of hoppy flavor and moderate carbonation. O - This one is much better than the regular version I am used to having. I wish it was like this all the time, I would definitely order it more thats for sure.

On tap at the Spring House Taproom. To simplify the description, this was a pretty standard, though strong IPA. The color was a rich gold, you could smell the hops and citrus; no fireworks over this one, but not complaints either.

Bomber via the Sloth...you double IPA loving three toed cretin. While growing hops is a passion of mine getting whacked in the head with them is not a major pastime of mine. This apparent hop bomb did so in a fashion that made it all worthwhile.... Piny hop resins great the medium copper body. a lofty rich head slowly settles and leaves behind a fine crusty lacing evenly about the goblet. Body is compact and tinny. Hops dominate with some fresh bread tone in center...nice. An enjoyable brew that got me thru a late evening hog splitter reconstruction session at the neighbors shed. Now if we could have a smoked IIPA of this stature...
