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.

BierMeHoos (288) - Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottled on 4/8/2015, poured 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass. This was gifted from New England fresh off the truck from dlovell2, thanks! Pours a clear medium amber color with nice head. Aroma is awesome, huge hoppiness in the nose with tons of tropical fruit. Taste is perfect, tons of fruit, sweetness, good bitterness. Palate was thin. Overall, this is the type of beer I’d drink everyday if i could.

bavarian81 (86) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Poured a deep gold to light amber color. The flavor was mostly piny hops. There was also a little citrus and and I also thought there was some grassy and bready malt in there as well. The flavor was nicely balanced. There was malty sweetness and bitter hops. The citrusiness was more prevalent in the flavor than in the aroma.. pretty sure it was grapefruit. Quite nice.

Pours Amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet with caramel. The flavor is malty but not sweet. Lots of hops come in at the back. The finish is long lasting.

bnokk (102) - Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2015
APPEARANCE - dark straw color with persistent pure white head. NOSE - nice hop bite. Slightly west coast, no floral or fruity notes to my nose. Perhaps saz hops with slightly grassy and earthy smells. FLAVOR - expected for a west coast style double IPA today. NOTES - this is done better than most of the craft DIPAs available today. It doesn’t match the west coast craft kings, but it’s stands above a lot of competition.

Mad_Ferret (727) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2015
Can from Kihoskh. Pale golden with some minor particles creating a slight mist. Big soapy off white head that lace. Might starting to get a bit old since it has a pretty special aroma of bread crust and black tea with citrus. Perhaps some carambola and passionfruit as well. Pretty nice after all. Grapefruity flavour with marmalade and breadcrust, big piney bitterness. Medium to bigger body, soft crisp carbonation, slight oily. Pretty good but maybe just a bit too old.

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2015
Flaske. Orangebrun klar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duften er citrus humle med en snert maltsødme. Smagen er let Ståle men fungerer fint ovenpå en hel aftens druk. Fin øl.

Clear golden. Very piney aroma, some citrus. Good malty balance, but a slightly harsh bitterness.
