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!

From the tap at the Brewery: Beautiful orange/amber color, hint of haze, with a creamy head. Nutty aroma with a little bite. Assertive taste with bitter notes right up front that soften into a tangy aftertaste. Full body but creamy texture. Overall, because of it;’s assertiveness, this is probably a one or two per sitting beer, but with this beer, that’s enough. Very nice DIPA.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle dated 01/07/2015. Aroma is fairly fruity and hoppy. Medium light citrus notes with a lot of pineapple, mango and peach. Moderate melon notes with light hop resin. Medium light malt notes with light caramel. Pours a moderately clear, golden orange with a moderately thick, somewhat small, white head that exhibits decent retention as it recedes to a thin film that lingers. Light lacing and medium small legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a definite caramel note and some pale malt notes. Moderately strong bitterness. Moderately strong hop notes but this time more grapefruit and resin. Lighter tropical fruit and stone fruit. Hint of alcohol in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low to medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent IPA but definitely not my preferred style. A little too sweet and malty without enough hops in the flavor. Onions, that is the aroma I was having trouble describing. This beer is a bit oniony in aroma and flavor; I like it, others won’t.

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.

LaViolette (115) - 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.

Bottle. Straight out of it. Herbal and grassy with some citrus aromas. Similarly citrus flavors, lighter grassy herbal hop tones.

notalush (5123) - 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 (9816) - 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 (2043) - 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.
