This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

Clear waffle yellow pour with a ring of white foam The nose - melon, orange juice, tropical melange. On the palette, crisp and sugary, medium bodied The backbone has a dry coating of flour, which seems odd to me

My first Double IPL...let’s see where the bar is set. Poured from a large can. Golden colour- on the lighter side. Big fluffy white head. The aroma...dear lord the aroma. Very fresh, very clean. Citrusy and fruity. Taste is nice, very well balanced. Those fruity hops (tropical) come to play but there is a malty sweetness that is there as well. It’s really, really good. I had no heads up going into this and WOW how pleasantly surprised I am. This is freaking good.

Hazy yellow body with a soapy white cap. Aromas of sourdough bread, lager yeast, citrus hops. A balanced beer, with sufficient hop character atop a robust malt bill. Light to medium bitterness. Tasty!

Dégustée en compagnie de Marco. Bière blonde plutôt trouble, de couleur jaune pêche qui affiche une mousse bien riche et généreuse. Des arômes fruités au nez. Je ressens du fruit et au-delà du kiwi, une certaine fraise sur une base plutôt granuleuse et beurrée. Un houblon est présent certes, mais celui-ci est très léger. La bière est plutôt construite autours des malts jeunes et d’une fermentation Lager si bien faite et équilibrée que j’ai plutôt l’impression d’être en présence d’une Ale (pas trop fan de Lager généralement). Un alcool est indéniable en bouche. Le grain est encore une fois joli et équilibré. L’amertume est moyenne, voire douce, mais le houblon très aromatique en fait une bière légère, douce et très rafraîchissante. Très agréable et facile à boire.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a slight hazy burnt yellow to golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated in a messy fashion. Lacing speckled in a messy fashion. The smell had a charming sweet to bitter juicy grassy to citrus blend sliding into an underscore of floral bitterness. Hop oils start to come out as it warms. Really nice! The taste followed the smell nicely. Low dry floral to citrusy aspects burst into the aftertaste and slide into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel as to not wreck the palate. Carbonation seems good for a lager style - enough smoothness but also enough IBU harshness hitting my tongue. Overall, I’ve wanted this for a long time and am so glad I finally found it. One of the best IPL’s, I’ve ever had and would recommend with its respected food. But for me, I might like to try with some bleu cheese crusted New York strip steak.
