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.

ERB92 (252) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Fruits, citrus, pine, resin and a hint of toffee in the aroma. Deep golden body with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall nice DIPA, good bitterness and some warming alcohol in the back.

Koelschtrinker (10475) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Frisch grasiger, leicht honigartiger Hopfenantrunk. Die Hopfenintensität bleibt bestehen, helles Malz, getreidig. Zitrusnoten, passend bitter. Vollmundig, steigend hopfig, würzig. Gut! 11/12/10/12/11/12

Bottle. Poured a clear orange with no head to speak of.Smells of fruit, flowers, pretzels and hops. Mostly bitterness to be found in the taste. OK

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, dark golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has pine cones and resins, with some grapefruit notes and pale malts. It’s full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Grapefruit, pine cones and resins in the flavor, the malts lurking in the background. Lasting finish with lots of bitterness and grapefruit peel. Pretty nice this one, although a bit weak all the way. 140815

Bottle 355ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, peach, alcohol and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long bitter citrus, grape, pine and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Tonkun (843) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Tap. Hazy golden orange pour with a big white head. Pine, grapefruit, floral, citrus. Medium body. Bitter, a bit fruity. A big more body to balance out the bitterness would be nicer

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
couleur entre or et ambrée, nez expressif, résine, agrumes, citron, orange, pêche, un peu de caramel. Bouche assez puissante, une belle texture et une bonne amertume mais ça manque un peu de fruits, seulement quelques agrumes mais pas de fruits exotiques. Bonne longueur. Un peu déçu par l’aromatique de cette bière, à revoir sur un autre batch peut-être.

Poured at home into IPA glass. Translucent golden copper with a thick foamy head. Big piney, grassy, and juicy citrus aromas leap out. Medium body and carbonation drinks with a bitter hop bite. Certainly a nice IPA though a bit one dimensional, though it did open up as it warmed. I'd reach for another if it was around but I don't know if I'd buy a whole pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
