COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Our mission for this Imperial or Double India Pale Ale is to overload the beer with hops for an intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma while still being balanced by a big malt profile, resulting in a hoppy beer with more dimension. This beer is light copper in color with some hop haze from overloading with dry hops as well. World Beer Championships Award: Bronze Medal 2011

12 oz Can. Dark amber color with some gold hues. Big fluffy white head, dissipates somewhat quickly. Hoppy nose, cantaloupe and pine. Tart flavor, not sure on first sip if I love it. It is good, not great. There isnt a tremendous amount going on flavor wise, but the maltiness is a but off putting for my palate. I have no issue with this, but it isnt memorable.

Reddish brown with an inch of tan head. Aroma is sweet, with red grapefruit and some dark plum notes. Taste is the same, with a plummy alcohol syrup that carries into the finish. Nice stuff, not overly alcoholic, with a high amount of residual bitterness. $2.7/12oz

12oz can from Weilands. Clear copper pour with light tan head and foamy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, herbal, grass. Tastes are fairly malty up front then spruce, sugary dough, floral, grass, spices, pine wood, citrus. Oily resiny hops on the medium palate. Fairly bitter in the finish, but the sweet malt wins out overall. Decent dipa sippa.

A very big ipa. It was to much malt. It did balance out but to bug on the malt profile. Very cloying. Had a weird bitter taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
