COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our double IPA collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. Last year’s batch was a single-hopped Cascade double IPA brewed with 50 lbs of fresh grapefruit and was released on draft only. This year’s version (in our opinion) blows the first batch out of the water. The malt bill is simplified, resulting in a lighter, drier beer – which allows the massive hop additions to shine through. A mix of fresh grapefruit, lemons, limes, and oranges was added to the boil, and this batch also features a blend of several different American and New Zealand hop varieties, instead of just Cascade.

Botella. Hazy deep golden colour, small white head. Pleasant hoppy fruity piney aroma indeed. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is quite hoppy with plenty of fruit (exotic) and pine along with citrus and a sweet maltiness.

Se supone que a las chicas no nos gusta tanto el lupulazo, menos mal que eso es un mito. Estupenda IPA con toda la carga de lúpulo cítrico añadida a los cítricos en sí mismos. Aunque redundante es IPA turbia, aromática, astringente y bien amarga deja satisfecha. Buena retención de espuma, y sabor de lúpulo fresco, resinoso. Amargo largo que queda.

Comprada en Cervezorama. Me ha encantado esa doble IPA. Apariencia turbia, dorada-ámbar con espuma rocosa y persistente. Aroma claramente a cítrico, sobre todo pomelo. Quizá tenía demasiado la astringencia de la fruta pero un amargor firme y un dulzor equilibrado. Una IPA muy agradable, que recomendaré.

JanLaursen (3088) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 65 ml. Hazy orange with a small white head. Very hoppy, ripe fruity nose with herbal accents. Taste is sweet, toasted caramel mixed with greasy, almost oily piney, grapefruity hops. Full bodied, harsh and almost rancid heavy bitter finish. A little too bozzy and head on for my liking. No subbtleness.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruites, straw, and caramel, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
