COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Double IPA brewed with Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook, Summit and Calypso hops. Buddha’s hand and grapefruit peel are added at the end of the boil to reinforce the citrus qualities of the American hops. Buddha’s hand is a variety of citron with long fingers and no fruit inside. Intense zest and flavorful but not bitter pith contribute to the juicy hop profile of this unique brew.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 I’m a big fan of this newly released DIPA. The aroma is very floral with vague hints of citrus. The flavor is packed to the gills, dank resiny floral citrus grapefruit with a crisp bitter finish. It’s essential to let this warm in the glass for 10-15 minutes before enjoying. The only thing preventing a perfect score is the use of Chinook hops which unfortunately tends to exaggerate the illusion of dry pith.

Verre de dégustation, provenant d’une bouteille de 22 oz, au Mondial de la Bière 2015 (Montréal, QC) au coût de 2,00$. Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est orangée opaque avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de pamplemousse avec une pointe d’orange et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #6404)

sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. unclear medium dark golden with acreamy off-white cap, good retention and lacing. minty citrus, spicy caramel, sweet toasts, very floral - lavender perhaps; ginger shoots, perfumey sprucey gum, some roasted chilies (!), tingling booze, spices, clean yeast action. light carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit heavy; semi-sweet yet assertive grassy-spicy-piney finish. old-school-ish - almost unique floral and spicy offering.

mathieuc (2168) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
(Mondial 2015, again, not sure how long this bottle was kept open) Pours a medium copper with a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of caramel, perfume, citrus and grass. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter and loaded with caramel. Both body and carbonation were medium and mouthfeel a little syrupy. Overall a different kind of DIPA, better than their Hopulence to me but still nothing special.

MaBeer1972 (1438) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
22 oz bomber. Poured into a snifter glass. A medium copper colored brew with a frothy light tan head that settles to a medium lace. Earthy, bready, citrus and spice aromas and flavor. Interesting bitterness from the grapefruit peel. Muddled in the middle. Heavy body. Murky bitter finish.

AirForceHops (4501) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Fresh 22 oz. bottle thanks to Rob B. Huge fluffy white head with strong head retention. Awesome aroma! Citrusy, resiny lightly earthy and somewhat dank. Juicy hops. Flavor is dank, green leafy hop flavors, big citrus with hints of pineapple juice, tropical fruits of mango and spicy. Oily / slick hop oil finish with a strong bread and caramel backbone. The bitterness lingers for a good while and shows the juicy fruity hops right after the sip. This is finely crafted DIPA and a joy to drink. Any hophead should be pleased with a fresh sample!

Another winner from Wormtown. Hops are big and citrus forward with a fair amount of lemon and pine as the main characteristics. FInishes citrus/lemon forward with some doughy biscuity malts.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops, some citrus and fruits from the fruits added, pale and light caramel malts, and hints of dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A cool beer.
