Cloudy light copper, thick white head, too cloudy. Balanced hop-malt aroma, grassy hop. Balanced hop-malt flavor, grassy hop. Medium body, moderate hop bitterness. Wonderful, but wouldn’t call it a double IPA freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Pours hazy yellow orange with off white head. Smell is mild piney, mostly malt though. Taste is more malt with an of oxidized hop kick of bitter grapefruit, a herbal must, and some pine. Just enough to this to make this interesting. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Not sure how chains work, but this is the double ipa at the Roseville MN location. Caramel with off-white head. A very hoppy aroma with a bitter tinge to it. A slightly juicy iipa with a nice citrus hop character phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2010
By double they meant twice as much hops as GC normally adds. This "double" IPA was basically equivalent to a mildly hopped IPA. I struggle to rate it higher then what I gave it considering it’s supposed to be an Imp, and it has a very weak hop structure. cloudy amber, decent head. But everything is lacking. Piney, floral hop profile. But taste is lackluster. Light in fruit with a soft metallicy finish.
