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.

5oz pour at Pizzeria Paradiso in Alexandria VA. Poured a cloudy copper color with a small relatively white head. Aroma was caramel notes, honey, citrus. Flavor was pretty subtle, considering the ABV. Well crafted Imperial IPA - enjoyable, tasty. Will keep an eye out for this particular brew in the future to see if it’s as good in the bottle.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice strong hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

hopscotch (9955) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!... Crystal clear, brilliant amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The fruity bouquet furnishes pineapple, mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit spicy, earthy hops. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Medium to heavily bitter. Not a lot of hop flavor, but plenty of rindy, tannic, lupulin bite. Subtle biscuit and caramel malts. Finishes lengthy, bitter and a bit dry. Very pleasantly surprised by this brew. World class bottle of beer provided by scraff!

GBBF. Cask. Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Pretty hoppy - good grapefruit tangerine bitterness with a little pineapple as well. Dry finish. Good stuff.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a small head. Aroma of piney hops, caramel, a bit of honey and light resin. Flavour is very citrusy, with the hops seeming to dominate the caramel backing, and some orange peel. Smooth mouth feel. Nicer on the nose than on the tongue. Still enjoyable nonetheless

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear golden orange with a small white head. Loads of resinous hops on the nose with substantial caramel malt to balance. Flavour is intensely bitter with citrusy hops dominating the profile with little malt balance to detect. Some orange peel / lemon zest in there as well. Quite good, though this is way out of balance. Enjoyable nonetheless.

Not a very good IPA. Mine tasted very mettalic with not enough malt tone. A little bit one-dimensional.

6-pack from Growlers on Hilton Head Island. Bright golden pour with a decent white head, bits of lace. Pungent aroma of big citrus, piney as can be, some heat too. Lots of pine and citrusy fruit from top to bottom. Lovely mix of lightly sweetened fruit and bitter hops. Mouthfeel was big and slick, oily, carbonation somewhat tingly. A top notch double from Starr Hill.
