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

mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Big creamy off-white head. Clear golden pour. Weak citrus nose. watery body. There are hops but they are neither distinct nor prominent, offset by a biscuity malt and leading to an unpleasant sticky, slightly astringent finish. Tastes green and not in a good, fresh, way bleh. A few tweaks to the recipe and it might actually be a good beer but as-is not good at all

Aroma: Biscuit, resin, spruce, citrus, pine needles, pine bark, forest mushroom, alcohol is really there too ; Appearance: pale, copper, hazy, white foam, full head ; light sweetness, medium bitterness ; Palate: medium to full body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Overall a very good and complex IPA, though not bitter enough for my own taste, it gives a pretty cool warmth down the throat (and a quick alcohol high too). Above all, this beer smells, tastes and feels like being in a forest. If I close my eyes while drinking it, i can easily imagine smelling the forest soil after a rain, feeling the bark of the trees, and hearing the sounds of the forest. It is a strange thing to say for a beer, and i was the first one to be surprised, but that is what I felt. - Should perfectly fit a mushroom and venaison meal, also.

Amber clear with rich white head. Sweet grain aroma. Strong malty sweetness with medium sourness and bitterness. Very good, but too sweet for me. Sweet malty aftertaste with good bitter notes.

The severity with the first sip and the more you drink the harder it is, bright and long bitterness in taste and aftertaste on the palate is soft acidity Drunk hard, do not want to repeat
