COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fast on the heels of our fantasticly reformulated Hops Infusion, our brewers have picked up the gauntlet and brewed a Double IPA using exclusively Simcoe(R) Hops! This west coast Hops was created in 2000 by Select Botanicals, Inc. and carries a fantastic flavor profile abounding with citrusy-grapefruit, piney, resiny notes that pushes this Double IPA over the top. 9.0% ABV in the brew gives it a nice malt foundation as well. Draft and bottles, 12 oz. in PA, 22 oz. out of state (as we have no 6-packs),

motelpogo (6131) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 17, 2014
bottle, from base camp in prague. amber with a thin but persistent head; aroma of pine, grapefruit and mango nectar; loads of bitterness, surprisingly dry yet zesty. doesn’t surprise you with the characteristics of its flavour and aroma, just with their intensity

Cuso (3827) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle, many thanks to coldbrewky. dark orange color with medium off-white head. Fruity and malty aroma. Taste, solid malty base with caramel followed by nice portion of hops with grapefruit, oranges, mango, lychee, tangerines, orange zest, pines, spices. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

Poured at World of Beer into tulip glass. Dull orange color, nice lacing. Big hop aroma. Bitter flavor with an interesting chewiness, astringent. Citrus and smooth finish.

Couleur cuivre. Bonne amertume en bouche mais peu de persistance. Une IPA dans le sens général du terme. Dans la bonne moyenne mais ne sort pas du lot.

Well bounce bottle pours an orange copper color with low to moderate head. A nice spicy citrusy aroma. A ton of hop particles suspended in the beer. A nice smooth tasting IPA that's not really anything special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhatB420 (603) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12oz into large stemmed Ommengang glass. Pours a dark ruby amber and musty brown, looks ugly. Head is small, fades fast, marshmellow brown, 1cm remains and some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh citrus, orange peel, orange spice, booze, grass, and marmlade. Taste is juicy orange, hops, grapefruit, and resinous volumes of the simcoe, which is pungent, zestful and superb. Drinkablility is vibrant and the 9% doesnt dumb down the brew, but it is noticeable. No freshness date on glass, seems to still hold the hop freshness a dipa should obtain. Lots of sediment floating in the brown murky pond of the brew, A nice orange/hop mix lingers in the aftertaste. Nice.

Very good ipa. First smell is very pleasant with the citrus notes. The taste is flowery, citrus and has a long lasting bitter aftertaste. It had 9 percent, but it is not boozy at all. On my hotlist of very good imperial ipa's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Unfiltered chunky full bodied DIPA. Little floating chunks of happiness! This is one of my favorite Double IPAs. Great from start to finish.
