Liqourloft tallahassee, finally back in stock. pour was a strong dark amber with a small whitish head. The aroma was citrus hop dominant, grapefruit maybe hint of pine in the background. The taste was aggressive and delicious hops. They call it a double pale ale but the hops are similar to an IPA. bitter and tasty grapefruit and more hops start and finish with a sweet and mellow malt backbone present to try and keep things balanced. little alcohol in the finish but not as much as i would have expected of something weighing in at 10.5. deceptive. body is medium to full.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep amber golden, somewhat brown. Nice white head to go along. Big sweet smell of hops and lightly roasted malt sweetness. Taste is full bodied, lots of sweetness up front, but with a big backdrop and finish of hops.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2009
Bottle. Murky orange color, little head. Aroma is bitter with citric hops, an alcoholic touch. Flavor has grapefruit, grass and malts in it. A very thick, almost oily mouthfeel dominates the brew. The high ABV leaves an alcoholic aftertaste.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Handsome light brown body with a beige head. Rich aroma of over ripened fruit, vanilla, and a little pine. taste is fruity, grassy, resinous, very rich and complex. Nice balance of hop bitterness and sweetness, with a warming alcohol burn. Good stuff

bretupdegraff (242) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Aroma is mostly hops with an earthy orange hint. pour is light amber with a massive creamy off-white head. Taste is hoppy and citrusy and very bitter... the after taste is very nice - lots of great flavors- alcohol burn is a bit much but then I noticed the ABV. The website says 10.5% but my bottle says 11.5%. Certainly not your typical Double Pale Ale - more like Double IPA meets Barley Wine?? All around a nice brew. Just be sure you are in the mood for a strong one!

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
Pours crystal clear amber with a light carbonation. A few tiny bubbles rising in one thin line from the bottom of the glass. Really thick, rich, rock steady off white head. Powerful super hoppy fruity aroma. Flavor is loaded with grapefruit and pine needle hoppiness. And hang on cuz this is a strong one. The hops hides the alcohol but you need to be strong yourself to keep this dog on the leash.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2008
12oz. Bottle. Let me start by saying that this is a very solid brew. Pours out a burnt orange color with a decent lacy white head. Aroma is strong with lots of grapefruit and pine. Flavor also centers around the hops but is balanced decently by the malt profile. Crystal malt flavor is evident to keep the hops somewhat in check. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and this beer has lots of that sticky resinous vibe that most of the 2IPAs exhibit. Finish is long lasting and extra bitter with a touch of alcohol warming sensation. You will be able to feel this one on your tongue for awhile after the beer is finished. Good stuff.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 I could smell the hops from the minute I unlodged the cork (and I do mean unlodge since it required a corkscrew). Dark golden and slightly hazy appearance. The smell is very promising. Hops are similar to 90 minute but more smoothed out by the malt. The malt is initially good in being able to carry the hop but then gets carried away and becomes cloyingly sweet. Each sip confirms this. Aroma and initial taste are good, but the sweetness on the finish is overdone. re-rate march 07 12oz bottle - much more balanced. Big hops and big sweet fruity malt. Well done.

Once the cap is popped, it is very clear that this is no pale ale--and no variant thereof. The hop aroma filled my kitchen so much that my wife took notice from across the room. Pours a light amber with a thick creamy but shortly lived vanilla head. As Ive already mentioned, the aroma id clearly filled with hop resins. Also smells of citrus. It sits thin-medium on the tongue. Taste is citrusy, piney, and very bitter. The finish is quite hoppy-bitter--very long hop finish.

Its nice, very good. On the whole, I prefer Dog 60 and 90 and Great Divides Fresh Hop as examples of a well-hopped ale. But this is very nice and well worth the purchase.</br></br>

Gusgus (235) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Very rich malty aroma. RAisins, rum and cherries. Citrusy hops. Big, sweet flavor. Roasted malts evolves into slightly sour, bitter grape aftertaste.
