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 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.

alobar (2867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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

HopTsing (441) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
From the bottle poured a deep gold colored brew with a nice white head. Aromas of grapefruit, hops and malt. Full bodied with a interesting flavor mixture of malt, hops and a hint of honey and grapefruit. A long hop finish.

tia (1008) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Light copper with thin white dissipating head. Smells sweet and citrusy and grainy. Nice hoppy flavor. Medium bodied with a nice hoppy finish. Nice to enjoy something local.

italianjohn (2370) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Clear deep golden pour, thin off white head and light sticky lacing ... aroma is very light and of grapefruity resiny hops .... taste is of grapefruity hops, subtle caramel malts, bitter and rindy .... has a nice bitter dry rindy hop punch in the finish as well .... abv hidden well ... more like a solid above average ipa than a dbl ipa .... lack of aroma hurts this brew

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 Drank from a tulip. Floral and hoppy with a decent malt backbone. Chewy mouthfeel. Nice
