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.

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

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear gold body under a one finger foamy white head. The nose is citrusy and resiny with a heavy bready malt base. A light hint of alcohol as well. The flavor is not quite as bitter as I was expecting, though thereís plenty of hops. The malt base is rather heavy and sweet with lots of bready malt. Fairly thick and full bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering tropical fruit hoppiness. Decent stuff, but not something Iíd drink a whole lot of.

Bottle thanks to Brenton. Pours cloudy blonde gold with bone white head. Nose and taste of bready malt, caramel, pineapple husk, peppercorn, resin, tree sap and pine. Dry finish. Prickly carbonation. Medium body.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Light blond appearance with a ring of head. The nose is surprisingly leafy, replete with Centennial and Cascades rounded out with careful co-humulone touches and tastefully bitter licks. The body too is heavily C-hopped, but quite acerbic. Despite the emphatically bitter finish, a decent, highly drinkable brew.

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013 Pours a crystal clear medium gold. Citrus pine bitter resin and grapefruit abound. Decent brew.

callmemickey (2272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Hazy straw yellow body, medium white head, soapy lacing. Nose is pine, caramel, resin and grapefruit. Flavor is all bitterness. Masking the actual hop flavor. Medium bodied, light carbonation, massive bitterness, truncated finish.

boxofrane (1881) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from Mariís. I canít locate a bottle date so hereís hoping its fresh. Pours clear copper with a ton of carbonation, slight white film on top, uneven bubbles, light lacing. The aroma has a nice pine, resin hit followed by a nice citrus backbone. Good smelling beer. The taste has a nice bitter punch at the front of the tongue that has a longer duration than expected. There is a nice balance of grapefruit, and maybe some rye malt. A well balanced beer and a lot more flavorful than the ABV would suggest. Solid palate but boy does this dry, hoppy, bitter taste linger in your mouth. Well done!

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!
