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!

This is nice! Can from craft cellar Waterbury. Pours dark gold/orange limited head lots of lacing. Nose is fruity fresh grapefruit. Flavours are grapefruit, pine, some spice. Taste med/big bitter light/mef sweet. Big body with some alcohol present and an aggressive bitterness to the finish. Really nice.

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - cloudy orange beer with a little foam left; piney and peachy hoppiness with strong notes of caramel; full-bodied, sweet and sticky; robustly bitter, long hoppy finish of tangerines, resin and pine needles

Draft at Good Dog. Mostly clear medium-dark orange amber with a sheet of soft foam. Sweeter and frutier than I was expecting. The big hop flavors are there but more than a little overpowered by the malt. Sugared browned tangerine peels. Herbal honey resins. Feels like a bitter marmalade. Have had so many better DIPAs such that I am not overly impressed.

Bottle. Cool aroma: malt and excellent hops. Taste: wine, fruit, warming with good bitterness.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy and resinous hops ride slick honeyed malts in this professional yet not entirely memorable Double IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear gold shine.
-The mouthfeel is suave.
-This is relatively drinkable for the style.
-Alcohol makes its presence felt a bit in the finish.
-This finish is balanced out by resinous bitterness.

Pours an amber from a bottle, great piney hop flavor and aroma. Great example of the style and excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Dorée sur un léger toruble, col épais blanc. Arôme est fort centré sur les houblons, notes agrumes assez agréable sur un petit rétro de pin. Malt n’est pas en reste avec un côté prenant de pâle et cara. Palais est fruité aux saveurs agrumes, pamplemousse, pointe de papaye, mangue, pour une amertume persistante. Le tout est complété par un fini pin et herbacé. Ok, mais manque juste un petit qcq chose, le profil malt ressortant un peu trop, ombrageant le caractère du houblon.

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Assertive grapefruit and piney aroma. A hazy amber and orange body with a slim white head. Bold bitter hop bite. Sweet grapefruit to balance. Clean dry to the finish.

Alusmamuts (731) - LATVIA - MAR 15, 2015
Amber with medium off-white creamy head. Fruity aroma. Deep hoppy bitterness, some soreness on the tongue middle and slight fruity sweetness along its centerline. Lasting bitter aftertaste.
