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.

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.

martin00sr (1258) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2015
Nearly clear dark golden, small white head. Juicy aroma of pine, grapefruit and peach. Citrus bitterness nicely balanced by slightly caramely malt. Solid, alcoholic and bitter finish with a little but nice roughness.

dlovell2 (1091) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2015
Poured from bottle that was bottled 12 days ago on 4/8/15. Pours clear light copper color with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is grapefruit zest and dank pine resin. Flavor is grapefruit and dank resiny pine. Very enjoyable. I wouldn’t have guessed this was 8%. I thought it was a little light for a double IPA but still very good .

Taste med/big bitter light/mef sweet. Big body with some alcohol present and an aggressive bitterness to the finish. Really nice.

NikkTwist (1886) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Mostly clear medium-dark orange amber with a sheet of soft foam. Sweeter and frutier than I was expecting. The big hop flavors are there but more than a little overpowered by the malt. Sugared browned tangerine peels. Herbal honey resins. Feels like a bitter marmalade. Have had so many better DIPAs such that I am not overly impressed.
