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

I might have got an old one, but this had barely any hop aroma. Just malt. Maybe a little pine, but not a bomb by any means. Looked nice, tasted alright, but kinda meh without the aroma to bring the whole package together. There was no date on the bottle, maybe it was from a separated 6pack?

kajser27 (1487) - 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 (5148) - 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.

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.
