COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You asked for it, so we brewed it! We took our flagship Evo IPA, increased the malt bill, and added even more of the best Yakima Valley Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, and Columbus hops to give this double IPA a piney, citrus aroma.

Probably not a new bottle...love the hop profile in here it just didn’t seem fresh. Good sticky feel, but the aroma and flavored are muted. Gotta date...

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bomber. Poured clear, lighter orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet oranges and honeyed malts topped by fresh pine, floral, and grapefruity hoppage.. peppery on the back of the nose. The flavor found honey and light biscuity sweetness at the core with peppery and orangey bitterness throughout.. very spicy with a hit of raw alcohol on the finish. Medium-bodied and a touch sharp on the palate.. this was alright.

22oz bomber. Oily hemp old school IIPA aroma, not really that appealing. Resinous, thick hop flavors, not really capturing the Simcoe or Galena. Drinks really heavy for the moderate ABV. Lots of hops and a sweet malt backdrop...but this just isn’t that well crafted. Unfiltered amber brown-tan. Seriously respectable off-white head...long lasting. Loses points right back when I watch the floaties actually swim around the glass. I actually strained it and it tastes and looks better, but lost some carbonation. Resinous sticky hop aftertaste...nothing really distinct.

Color is a hazy red. Smells caramel, hops and light on the citruis. Tastes piney, tart and slightly sweet. Pretty mild for a DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

resin, peaches, caramel i smell. Slightest haze on light amber with lasting white head. The flavors are nicely balanced nicely balanced—resin hopes with a little lemon, the sweets fairly transparent, a hint of smoke. A little light in the mouth. Thin but flavorful finish.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice Hops forward flavor and finish. Great beer super IPA. Nice citrus flavors.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus (orange and tangerine), light grapefruit, a touch of floral notes, and faint caramel. It pours a hazy dark orange with a two finger cream colored head that has good retention. There are a lot of sticky rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy citrus notes of orange and tangerine along with a light fruitiness. There is some light caramel in the middle. The finish has moderate grapefruit and floral hops. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I generally don’t like caramel flavors in IIPAs, but the light caramel flavor in this one seems to work for me.

Lagerboy (1212) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear dirtier orange, off-white foam settles and breaks. Floral grapefruity c-malt aroma. Taste is mouth watering citrus grapefruit and a little too much sticky sweet caramel/toffee malt. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Fresh and clean but hardly a double. Almost an Impy makes it: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Nice west coast dbl ipa! Poured a nice hazy copper with a lingering off white head! Blasted by citrus hops in the nose really fools you as take a sip, and you run into a wall of bitterness! I really enjoyed this ipa!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver; 7.8% ABV
Cloudy orange color with small head. Nice aroma of hops, delicate, citrusy. Dry, lean, toffeish, with strong bitterness, soft resins, and plenty of citrus fruits. This 1½ IPA is fresh and dangerously drinkable!
