COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our favorite double IPA’s are all about citrus flavors, so with our Westbrook collaboration we wanted to pack as much grapefruity. hoppy goodness in there as possible to further bolster the hop profile. The addition of fresh grapefruit zest took the labor intensiveness of this beer another level but we think it was worth it and hope you do too! Cheers! Scott, Rich, and the Westbrook Crew

Vestergaard (431) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2013
Pours golden, cloudy amber with an off white head. Aroma is very fruity with peach, a little lemon. Exotic - reminds me a little of mojito. Taste is pretty bitter up front. Slight pine or grass, but most of all this massive fruityness. Grape/lime, peach, pineapple, followed by a late bitter end. Quite a mouthful, but still pretty fresh for it’s high ABV.

Pours cloudy golden amber with off white head. Aroma is fresh hop forward. Also some peach, pineapple, lime, citrus and some pine. Quite tropical. I also get some more bready notes behind. You can smell that this is a big fat DIPA with some balls. Taste is nice fresh hop forward with refreshing citrus notes, tropical fruits, pine, quity ’crispy’, almost minty and with some bready notes behind. Alcohol is there but not overpowering in any way. Very good!

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Cloudy orange with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with biscuit notes, orange and peach hops, and a touch of alcohol. Sweet malty and fruity hoppy flavour with a good bitter finish. A bit of alcohol

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, citrus zest and moderate hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Too malty to be really good. 231113

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A dense, off-white head sits on top of an unclear, orange-golden body. The aroma has a pleasant hoppyness, with some tropical fruityness, citrus peel, peaches and a fine maltyness in the back. The flavor has a nice bitterness, quite a lot actually, with juicy maltyness in the back. Peaches, orange peel and grapefruit juice too. Full body, semi-dry and with a pleasant carbonation, some alcohol warmth too. Lasting hop dominated finish. A fresh and tasteful DIPA I could easily have a few of. Maybe it would do good with even more hops, but I like it like it is anyway. 131123

Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours cloudy orange with airy off-white head. Intense, bitter aroma, with plentiful sweetish, fruity notes. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with regular notes of hops and hints of citrus. Bitter and sweet-sourish aftertaste. Nice.

Bottle @ Invasion U.S.A, Ulfborg 2013. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Citrus and caramel. A bit of yeast. Too malty. Had hoped for the citrus/hops to be more pungeant and dominating.
