COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, hoppy IPA with plenty of bite! Our assertive, hop-centric Double IPA has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral, not-for-the-timid!

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Hannaford, Exeter NH. Aroma is strong herbal hops, scallions, with resin, citrus and pine. Appearance is hazy light brown with trace sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head which fades quickly to light coating but mild lacing. Taste is as aroma with bitter herbal/scallion taste dominating but citrusy fruit late and very mild malty backdrop. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average-to-lively carbonation, and dry, crisp bitter finish. Overall, truth in advertising--plenty of hops both in terms of aroma/taste and bitterness. Personally, I’d like a little more balance, but I can’t fault them for what they were trying to do.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours golden with a nice white head and lacing. The aroma is typical citrus and floral hops with grapefruit being at the forefront. The taste is the same. This drinks pretty smoothly for a double IPA. I would get this again.

coldbrewky (1640) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 1, 2016
One draft with dinner in Rosendale. Nose is mutes hops and mostly malt. Body is up front and a tad pushy. Piney yup...got that. Floral....not overly so. Yo know that this packs a wallop. Is this my first CT beer? I’m not sure I am even allowed to consume a CT product.

Lukaduke (2908) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours a medium golden color with a finger plus of foam. Nose is caramel and citrus with some stale grain. Palate is grassy with a soft sweetness throughout. Pine, citrus, jello, biscuity. Assertive bitterness and booze on the finish. Pretty boring and sticky.

jredmond (7132) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Can shared with Paul. Pours a light golden body with thick white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of soft citrus, wheat, clean pale malt, dry bitterness and soft sugars.

PhillyBeer2112 (2709) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2016
In a time where DIPAs are a bit passe, this is not so bad. Certainly aggressively hopped, very piney/resiny more than anything, it is still fairly drinkable, it is not too chewy, malts are clean/bready and provide enough backbone. Nice golden-amber color with a full head.

johnnnniee (3399) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Can from a Lazy dog canned 1/6/16 Just a touch of haze in the golden body with a frothy bubbly white head that persists forever. Fruity toffee and candy sugar is what I find on the nose. The flavor is quite sweet with a caramelized sugary feel some sweet fruitiness and bitter earthy hops to counter. Bit of alcohol flavor especially in the finish. Maybe I’m spoiled from all the great double IPA’s I’ve had lately, but this is really malty and lacks enough hop aroma and flavor.

polo_marco (186) - milton, Vermont, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Smells of sweet grass and some melon and line resin lies beneath followed by hint of malt. Nice clear amber color. Taste of lemon grass and papaya. Medium body with nearly perfect carbonation. Nice DIPA.

martjoobolut (2506) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle 8%, bottled 27.05.15 (from beergium). Pours amber with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, pine, caramel, some berries, citrus and touch of alcohol. Flavor follows the nose. Finish is pine bitter with some old hops and touch of alcohol. Overall: typical USA IPA. I can session this, but would like to try fresher version.
