Double the hops, double the fun! Double Platinum is dry hopped with Simcoe hops to achieve a very pungent citrus aroma and a well-balanced malt backbone. The beer weighs in at approximately 8.5% ABV.

Cloudy, orangish pour with white head, little lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, oranges, and lemons. Taste is sweet, mild bitterness, but mostly on the back end. Overall, I like this one quite a bit. Well balanced, nice flavor, smooth, and I really like the citrus aromas on every drink.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours from the bottle an amber-orange hue, with an initial 2-finger froth that diminishes to a thin soapy cap that leaves thick window-wash lacing down the glass. The nose is of floral and citrus notes, nicely integrated. Flavors of grapefruit lay on top of a caramel malt, with bran cereal hitting mid-palate and a dry Simcoe hop finish... quite citrusy. The full body accompanies an oily mouthfeel, making for a substantively active palate, complete with noted (yet subtle) carbonation. This is a very nice IIPA, and its complexities are well-integrated and enjoyable.

Bottle pours amber with off white head. Aromas of malt, and floral and citrus hops. Taste is bitter with resin notes, balanced by sweet malts. Long bitter dry finish completes this one. Overall a decent DIPA.

750 bottle poured into a tall flute, mailed to me by my friend Suzy, just because she wanted to include something for me in a Christmas box. Excellent choice Suz!!! Clear orange-amber with dense head and stinky, stinky nose. I can smell the hoppy goodness as the glass sits on the table two feet from me. Up close it’s a strong hop and alcohol nose, with creamy hints of caramel. Strong! taste is big and strong up front. Lots of pine tree hops. Flavor fades quickly to more of a lager flavor. Very clean in the mouth, with sharp bitter leftovers. Not overpowering at 8.5%. Gooey back. Nice.

From my old Beerlicious iPhone app: Draft. Citrus aroma is bang! Red/Orange in color that is clear. Frothy white head. Light bitterness to start and heavy bitterness on the finish. Medium body that is stick and thick. Average Carbonation and a bitter finish.

smag4life (36) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle. Deep orange pour with a thick, rocky, off white head. Intense spicy and floral hop aroma in the nose. Medium body with a hoppy hit upfront, but not as intense as the aroma would lead you to believe. Balanced by a sweet finish that leaves leaves the hop bitterness on your tongue. Very good DIPA.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2012
The aroma is impressive with lots of citrus and pine hops to go along with bread like yeast and malt. The appearance is cloudy orange amber with an impressive large head that lasts and makes lots of lace (impressive)! The taste is astringent and somewhat caramely. The palate is thin. Overall a mixed bag.

TheGB (515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pours a nice amber with a thick 1/4" head. Light aroma of malt, and honey and citrus hops. Nice smooth palate with a light to medium bodied. Pretty good actually.

nimbleprop (5187) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2011
12oz bottle pours a weird, tan sort of color with a thin, eggshell head. Nose is very pungent, pine, grapefruit, soap, lemons, limes, orange zest, a little bit malty. Flavor is fairly solid, heavy pine, heavy soap, the citrus is a little muddled, some grapefruit, some lemon. Good malt backing, crackers, some light caramel. Full bodied, bitter finish. Well balanced.
