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.

notalush (4994) - 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 (9520) - 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 (2036) - 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 (41) - 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.

Bebum (334) - - NOV 21, 2014
Amber, slightly cloudy, much lace. Medium body, intense and seductive flavor, smooth mouthfeel, avg carbonation, alcoholic, not very long. Bitter but well balanced by malt, Hoppy, flowery, citrusy. Delicious but slightly lacking in mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfectly nice middle of the road ipa - nicely hopped with a nice bitterness and citrus taste. Nothing special but very good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
