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.

Bottle. Clear dark copper body under a one finger frothy beige head that lowly faded to a thin ring. The nose is fairly heavy citrusy hops, but more caramel malt than anything, some noticeable alcohol. The flavor is just a little too heavy on the caramel malt sweetness for my tastes as far as a DIPA goes. The hops have a real hard time making it past the caramel and crystal malt. Medium bodied and fairly chewy with soft fizzy carbonation. Not my kind of DIPA. I want a big old hop bomb from mine.

Keg @ Starr Hill. Deep amber with a small head. Nose is strongly resinous. Caramel malt and citrus. Taste is dominated by caramel. Some orange candies. Booze. Nothing refined about this. Medi body, oily. Needs work.

Pours a lightly hazy amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light toasted malt and citrusy hops. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, pine and grapefruit.

Bottled. Clear orangey brown pour with white head from bottle. Citrus and a bit of malts. PRetty drinkable for a IIPA, not too much booze taste. Pretyy good.

Poured an amber color with aromas of malt, light caramel, floral hops and some light pine. Flavors are the same malt forward followed by some pine and light citrus, lightly hopped for a DIPA more malt forward.

Basic citrussy and grassy hops aromas. Really pretty looks, color and a thick foamy head. Way better on tap then bottle. Smooth, caramel, grassy, syrupy, hides the alcohol content.

Cask - Mostly a pine smell on the nose. There is some hops on the palate but mostly a pine taste. It was really hard to get past the pine smell/taste on this beer. I was expecting more of a hop flavor on this DIPA but I didnít get it. Pine covers the high alcohol content on this one.

Emeister84 (2038) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Aromas of citrusy, piney, and floral hops, some bready malts. Clear amber with burnt copper highlights, and a fully lasting satiny off-white head. Off-dry, some aromatic, floral hop notes, a nice malt cushion. Medium bodied, pretty darn smooth.

First had this 4 years ago when I was beginning my craft beer journey up in the Virginia mountains. Severals years later this still holds up as very solid double ipa. Easy drinking iipa with lots of caramel, floral, medium citrus. Quite balanced if you like that kind of thing.

Tasty beer, but too malt-forward for a double IPA, IMO. That said, it does have some tasty malt flavors of toast, caramel and brown sugar. Hops are grassy, floral and somewhat citrusy. Balanced bitterness. Fruity alcohol. As a "beer" itís pretty solid. As a "double IPA" itís way too malty.
