COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust. Brewed with a “heelch” (that means “a lot” in Boontling) of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, our double IPA has a palate pleasing bitterness that is artfully balanced with a full-bodied malt foundation. With a deep color of polished brass and a nose that sings of pink grapefruit and redwood needles, the rich biscuit-like malt flavors are intertwined with hints of vanilla, mangoes, and peppercorns leading to a deep, warming finish.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Victory

HOPS:
Columbus, Chinook, Cascade

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Aroma of cantaloupe. Taste is bizarrely and unexpectedly sweet at first taste. Given name leads you to anticipate "lots of hops," taste ends up being kind of offy-sweet.

355ml bottle (Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Sugary sweet malty aroma, dripping with caramel, sweet fruitiness from the hops. Says "gonna be *way* too sweet" to be honest. Orange, small tight head. In the mouth, it nearly satisfies the prediction from the aroma, but subtly derails it, and sends it in the direction of "yum". Yes, this is super sweet, but the lemony citrus hops keep it sharp. Palate is smooth, but not quite slick, carbonation and bitter bite prevent that. Slips down easily, drinkability amaingly good considering the sweetness. Definitely in the guilty pleasure zone, as this isn’t my style at all. Citrus hops initially the attention-grabbers, but red peppery bitter hops have the last say, there’s a nice little warmth to the finish. For something so far away from the beer styles I like, this has hooked me, and I have to congratulate the brewers - you made a hater like the style briefly.

At first a fruity bittersweet taste, some grape and a bit honey sweet. A loooooong powerful bitter aftertaste.

Pours amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows heaps of pine and a fair whack of sweet clean malt. Pretty straightforward but still nice. Very similar flavours but with some grapefruit and resinous notes along with a hit of booze. Carbonation feels a bit full on.
