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!

On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. Plain, green, planty aroma. The flavor follows through in a lot of bitterness and coppery malt. Clean, but yellow with raw hoppiness. I can’t get into this, it feels like an overly bitter Amber Ale with young flavor hops.

Tallboy can from TRT. Poured a hazy amber gold with a foamy white head. Aroma/flavorof dough, honey topped bread, sweet juicy citrus fruits. Flavor has an added touch of rotting citrus meat. Body is solid, full with strong cabonation. Meh, sort of boring.

@ Basunen 15-8-15: ganska ordinär öl med tydlig humle. Lagom fyllighet men inte riktigt något stort.

Light amber coloured and hazy. Has a hoppy aroma, citrus and light spicy. Some light sweet, malty notes too.

sir__v (1129) - Lille, FRANCE - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle shared with happyhoppy - Color: clear golden amber beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: nice hoppy resin domination. Fruity nose and small floral finish. Taste: good palate with nice sweet resin hoppy taste. Good balance. Fruity and resin finish. Alcohol notes. Aftertaste: resin and alcohol. Good dry bitterness.

GIJOE (969) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Pours almost copper with a foamy white head. Nose is orange peel and pine woods with a hint of pineapple. Taste is mostly bitter, but the malt backbone is there and the bitterness is nothing like flagship West Coast Double IPAs (which are more like getting shot in the face with a hopgun - I just made that up, in case you were wondering). This is a nice brew. I’m a fan.

Bottle. Nose is slightly sour, not great. Taste is mostly malty, with a hoppy hint. Not what I expected from a DIPA. Medium body, average carbonation.

mathieuc (2282) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from the Lake Willoughby Country Store, bottled 05/27/2015 (discovered after the fact) so not so fresh but hopefully still in shape. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruits, perfume and resin. Taste is bitter to a medium-high level and offers fruity hops and caramel. Body is medium, carbonation too and alcohol shows a little. Overall a pretty good DIPA but not a world class one. I would have to rerate a fresher sample, though.

A fine drinking DIPA. Fresh can from BevMo in Norwalk. Fully competent however nothing outstanding in taste about it.

beechner224 (957) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Can in trade - straight to glass. Pours a golden color with crazy amounts of white head. Aroma is piney, sugary, a tad dank. Taste is hop forward, pine, grass, some sweetness in the aftertaste. Bitternes lingers a bit in my mouth. Decent beer, but many better DIPAs out there.

BlazerT (280) - POLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, little hazy with, semi-densed, white head. Poor head retention and lacing. Very light tropical fruits aroma, the aroma is mostly dominated by malts - toasty, cereal. Taste is up to medium bitter with nice semi-sweet malty notes. Medium body, creamy texture, above average carbonation, finish is semi-bitter in short. In general below average IIPA, the only good thing is pretty good drinkability.
