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.

Das Heelch O'Hops Double India Pale Ale von der Anderson Valley Brewing Company aus Boonville, Kalifornien. Etikett mit dem Bären ist super. Dunkles Orange im Glas, trüb mit guter Krone. Fruchtig bitterer Antrunk, der malzig süsse Körper hat sehr gute Fruchtnoten parat (Grapefruit, Orange, Pfirsich, Maracuja) und wirkt vollmundig. Etwas Alknoten kommen hier auch durch (8,7%), die aber nicht weiter stören, weil die gute Hopfenbittere (100 IBU) wieder alles wettmacht. Verwendete Hopfensorten sind Columbus, Chinook und Cascade. Super DIPA.

A bottle from the basement of 101. Aroma: floral, spruce. Appearance: hazy dark amber, residual lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and oily, average carbonation. Long and flavoursome, very astringent finish. Taste: heavily bitter with some citrus flavour. Not my favourite by any means, but a respectable representative of the style.

Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma difícil de explicar, distinto al de muchas DIPAs. Miel, vainilla, ligera malta tostada, melón y resina. En boca entra dulce, con mucha miel, toques de vainilla, melón. Algo terrosa. Final muy resinoso y ligeramente cítrico con buena dosis de amargor que se mantiene en retrogusto y postgusto. Algo de alcohol se cuela también, pero es positivo. DIPA complejísima (como la mayoría de lo que he probado de Anderson Valley), única y sabrosa.

Hop is there. However the bitterness is dominated by the citrus. It's acidity remains lingering in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Optimus Beer. After dinner, in Roquetas de Mar. In shaker glass. Smooth to the palate. Very resinous, but with a refreshing sweetness that makes it not become a disgusting pine soup. High abv that affects

Bottle at Dogma Bottle shop. Expires at 27.07.2017. Not as hoppy as it used to be - at this, almost one year, age but malty and sweet, yet bitter enough. Nice beer, the best from the brewery.

It has something distinctive in the aroma and I can’t point out exactly what if feels like. There’s some resin, some liquor and some pine needles in it with a slightly citrus touch. It just looks so good, perfectly clear amber and a thick and durable white head. I left it for a while outside the fridge which I guess enhances the aroma but at the same time I guess the palate would feel a bit better if it was colder. It’s good anyway, don’t get me wrong. I guess my problem is that it is strikingly strong so I guess being a bit colder it would numb the bitterness down a bit. Still, much better to be overly intense than to be too plain in my opinion. Just drink it sip by sip, don’t rush it.

This makes a nice foamy head, with a golden amber colour and some cloud haze which settles. Has a lot of hops aroma and a fair whack of alcohol on top - peach, pineapple and citrus - with a liqour like sweet taste and some mild bitterness to finish. Maybe I’m not used to a DIPA, but tastes way over the top alcoholic for me...

Bottle. Clear deep golden. Small off-white head. Stays. Honey and melon as well as lollipop and mango on nose. Medium to full body. Well balanced taste with solid both sweetness and citrusy bitterness. Long hoppy ending.
