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.

tricyclist (923) - Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Moderate sample pour of bright golden straw with white head. Nose is straw and grassy notes, loads of citrus. Flavor is bright and clean, refreshing, plenty of citrus, lemon peel, dry and resinous. Not bad at all.

thornecb (4595) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Dusty resin and grapefruit aromas. Sweet caramel and resin front to back. Dry lasting grapefruit finish.

LaViolette (111) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2014
A very nice deep orange colour and a floral, honey nose. Taste is nice but nothing great, quite hoppy but not very complex.

vtafro (3913) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Straight out of it. Herbal and grassy with some citrus aromas. Similarly citrus flavors, lighter grassy herbal hop tones.

notalush (5073) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle - lightly hazy gold - nicely balanced DIPA - not overly bitter-abrasive or overly-sweet like many others tend to be (sometimes both) - starts with a clean, sweet citrus flavor - dries out through the middle, but the hops are very juicy and highly citric - however, they also bring a bright, quenching acidity - might not be too extreme for many fans of the style, but I really like the balance to this one.

hopscotch (9736) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is restrained, but as the beer warms I am finally able to pull a medicinal note and honey malt from the glass. Full-bodied with an abrasive mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Heaps of bitter citrus rinds and piths in the flavor and lingering finish. Dries out a good bit. Bottle courtesy of BriceNice!

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Hazy dark gold pour with a mid range lingering off white head. Beak had notes of caramel malt, citrus and piney hop with similar traits unfolding flavour wise. Decent enough balance struck with a bit of heat from the abv towards the finish. Plenty of bitterness on offer. A solid cover drive of a DIPA.

migwell (45) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Light on the malt, heavy on the hops, but not too bitter. I like DIPA’s generally, but this one is pretty one dimensional. Reminiscent of the ’flavor of the week’ at the local brewpub, nice try but not a keeper.
