My Bottom Line:
Toffee envelops lightly citrusy hop resins in this sweetish strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam garnishes the misty light russet.
-Hops aren’t bright enough for my tastes in Double IPA.
-A biscuity touch is also found in this decidedly malty strong ale.
-Carbonation is fluffy, making the residual sugars feel lighter than the flavor profile alludes to.
-The resinous hop bitterness is leveled to the rest of the brew’s medium-high intensity.

From a growler.

Potent. Pine sol finish. A robust amber colored ipa. Very nice. Good ipa brewery.

BVery (6096) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Tap at the brewpub - called "15 Year IPA" on the menu, and weighs in at 9.4% ABV. Clear orange pour with a foamy white head. Rich complex hop aroma, sharp hop bite in this. Quite good.

Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
In short: A brutal, richly malted and aggressively hoppy golden IPA. Good palate destroyer.
How: Growler, consumed fresh with Montréal friends, sent to me by oakbluff. thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Partly cloudy dark golden body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose is massively hoppy with lots of fruity and piney hops and also alcohol fumes. Taste has very nice toasted caramelized cereals, thick and sweet, very nice malt extraction here. Hopping is aggressive, piney and very resinous. Bitterness level is through the roof. This is truly a brutal beer, but it is a pleasant slap in the mouth. I liked this beer more than the people I shared the growler with, as usual I just laughed at their poor taste in beer, and I really don’t understand why they always say I’m too full of myself, yes all what’s inside me is mine, you guys are freaking weird if you have chunks of other people inside you.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Minnesota Winterfest 2013. Copper color with a large head. Aroma of citrus (major orange), grass and it just smells bitter. Strong bitterness in the flavor. Moderate caramel malt.

bytemesis (3094) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head and awesome lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit, and resin. Flavor is about the same - hope forward with a light sweetness. Very bitter in the body and through the finish. Medium body. Quite nice.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Tap at town hall as "15 year IPA". Listed as 9.4% abc. Server assured me it was their 15th anniversary beer. Amazing hop aroma. Slightly hazy body with nice white lace. Wonderful double ipa. Rich, hoppy.

"Town Hall 15 Year IPA". A marvelous aromatic and flavourful IPA. All the typical IIPA aromas and flavours, wonderfully balanced.

Big time citrus hop aromas and a bit of resin. Taste is a big pine/sweet bitterness that fades well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DalzAle (1976) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Growler. Dark tan pour, small frothy head and an aroma of strong tropical fruit and a little hops. Flavor is also nice tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), some pleasantly sweet hops and just enough malt to balance this beer out nicely. Really well done!
