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

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bomber into a snifter. Cloudy golden amber with a thick white head; very nice lacing. Aroma is heavier on the malt side than hops. Caramel malt and biscuit with resinous pine; some fruit (peach, perhaps). Taste follows the nose - pleasant sweetness with a moderately bitter finish. Nice and juicy. Medium body, soft carbonation. A fine DIPA, but a bit on the malty-side.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - MAR 7, 2017
Birra dal colore dorato tendente all’ambrato. Schiuma cremosa e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di esotica, carsmello e frutta candita. Al palato corposa con note lievemente liquorose ma piacevoli e non stucchevoli, ananas e pesche sciroppate hanno la prevalenza. Nal finale amara e aromatica da luppolo fresco, pulisce ed asciuga il palato dalla liquorosità sentita in precedenza. Un’ottima birra particolare e contraddittoria. Piacevolmente beverina.

Oranje kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Aroma: fruit, abrikoos en wat zoete mout. Smaak: abrikoos, sinaasappel, butterscotch en een licht bittere afdronk.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Dark golden to bronze in color. Dense, tight bubbled, heavy cream colored head. Thick lace. Aromas of citric and piney hops. Some honey and old sap and soap scents. Feel is a bit sticky. Flavors include sweet malt and honey, grapefruit, pine and, I’m still catching some soap. Just not digging the IIPAs from Anderson Valley. Anise, as I get toward the bottom of the glass I final detect the component that is really throwing me off . ANISE - One of those thing I am very selective in liking, and in beer is not one of the places. 2/13

Dogbrick (12578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Sample at Winking Lizard during the "Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Night" on 12/09/2016. The beer is a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, fruit and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hop aftertaste. Above average overall.

Lubiere (13525) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2016
A hazed golden DIPA with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and classic. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity biscuit malt with light vinous notes, resinous floral hops, treacle, light butterscotch, alcohol warmth, light citrus, very nice.

kajser27 (1707) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 8, 2016
Unclear, orange-golden colored, medium- off white frothy head. Aroma is of caramel, carob, orange hard candy, some light fruit and citrus, sure signs of the Atlantic. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, carob and orange hard candy, light+ fruity and citrus hops, medium+ bitterness. Medium+ bodied, soft carbonation, sticky. Another IPA lost at sea... (on tap, Craft Room, Zagreb)

Marko (5402) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 8, 2016
On tap at Craft Room. Misty dark orange/something body, small white head. Dry orange notes and biscuity maltiness in the aroma, panettone, and something else, strange. Definitely not the way even an APA, let alone a Double IPA should smell. This was gone ages ago. The taste verifies that. Dry caramel taste with vague herbal hoppy notes and a papery finish similar to the much better preserved Hop Ottin’. I hope to rerate it from a fresh bottle, as with Hop Ottin’ really, but this in particular, as this was a major disappointment. It’s really a shame that hop-driven beers this old are being sold and shipped around - and through no fault of the brewery or maybe even the pub.

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.
