COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours light orange with little nose. Taste is sweet and hoppy but not enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Mariís. Pours clear orange with a big off white head, lots of carbonation. The aroma has a nice citrus hop start, some caramel malt, light grass. The taste is pretty darn bitter, almost a dry bitter punch. The up front bitterness is a true assault on the palate. The balance is limited but this guy gets it done.. must be hopped several times. Palate is a little thin for the style which could make this go down way to quick. Nicely done.

This IPA gonna cause any panic at Stone or Bellís or Sierra Nevada. Nonetheless, it is a pretty respectable little double. Itís a clear orange in color with an average head that doesnít lace one bit, and the aroma is all lemon, tangerine and pine. Thereís big hops all over the taste, with a little bit of smooth malt coming through and all the same tones that are there in the aroma. There are better IPAs that donít cost as much, and for that reason I wonít buy this one again. But the price is my only real complaint with this brew.

Elwood (3071) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear amber color with a nice off white head. The nose is pretty much all pine. The flavor has a brash bitterness that is a bit off-putting. Almost acrid like aspirin. Little to no malt balance. Slight citrus pith notes emerge as it warms. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not impressed.

Pours a very clear light copper color. Aroma is some very mild citrus notes but not much else. For the style I would expect much more. Taste is sweet malt at first and then changes to bitter citrus. Definitely not one of the better DIPAs out there.

Good ipa. Bitter with a bite. A very good aroma. Beautiful Carmel color and head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very solid IPA, strong on the hops, but extremely drinkable. Crisp. Not citrusy. A pleasure I will repeat.

From tap. Not very aromatic, bit a slight citrus nose. Nice amber color with tall white head. Taste is citrus sweet with bitter finish. Not terrible, but leaves much to be desired.

Clear amber color with a white soapy head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and hint of pine. Grapefruit, caramel, flavor with resin and slight hop ending. Well-balanced. Decent beer.

On tap at beggattaway's. hoppy as hell, gave me a solid buzz, but was easy on the mouth. Had a sweet finish that could have been better, otherwise it was awesome ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
