COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

Pours a huge dense slightly off-white head that leaves abundant lacing with a somewhat clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet with orange, grapefruit, papaya and some pine. Flavor is moderately sweet, heavy bitter with undertones of orange, light grapefruit and pine. Medium to full body, very sticky texture.

hopmelt (159) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
pours hazy, medium golden, lots of bubbles streaming up, two finger dense, creamy off white head. Aroma citrus, floral, fresh bread malt. Taste dank citrus, floral hops, sweet bready malt, hint of burnt sugar and alcohol, bitterness is definetly there, but smooth and well balanced by big malt bill. Mouthfeel thicker side of medium body, mid-high carbonation, hop and alcohol bite, dryish finish. Overall excellent beer, extremely well made, complex, bitter yet balanced, if it can be had, get it.

DialSquare (2552) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2014
On tap at the Daily Growler in Powell. Murky deep orange pour with slight white head. Aroma of floral, citrus hops. Tastes are well rounded caramel malt and peachy citrus. Finishes with a bit of an odd floral, medicine bitter. Texture is nice chewy medium. Very good, but high standards here - something there that kept it from being great for me. 7.6

drsandman (223) - New York, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s. Pours a pretty golden orange, healthy white head. Some semi-stale citrus in the nose, sweet honey, pine resin. Quick pine hop attack with a big sweet body, moves to some sweet booze then finishes with a bitter citrus hop. Med body, quite sweet, some booze & average carbonation. Good stuff.

Cloudy orange with plenty of sediment hanging in the liquid. Smells hoppy and slightly creamy. Tastes strongly floral with some citrus peel and orange juice up front, followed by a very smooth, "round" aftertaste. Fizzy palate. Lingering flavors of pine and some caramel. Good. A little safer than I would have expected.
