COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Overhead IPA is a fresh handcrafted double IPA featuring copious amounts of hops. Laden with hops from begining to end and not overly bitter, its hop aromas and flavours give hints of Guava, Passion Fruit, and orange spice which blend well with the silky malt flavours. "Big braddah to the Big Swell IPA"

Dogbrick (12494) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Tropical fruit, hops and malt in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of floral hops, tropical fruits and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

greg244 (24) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2016
The beer pours out a hazy golden yellow body, pillowy white airy head. Aroma comes out somehow with a wheat/citrusy aroma. Flavor has a fruity/melon note to it, light sweetness and barely any noticeable hop character. Decent while cold, but kinda blech when it warmed up a tad.

ACHops (1527) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap @ Toronado Seattle. Pours hazy medium golden with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt; floral fruity hops on the back with notes of mango and passionfruit. Taste is assertive medium caramel malt; hops are dank, lightly earthy, substantial floral undertones with light citrus notes throughout. Clean finish with faint lingering bitterness. Not quite as good as Big Swell, but solid IIPA.

Ernest (7556) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draft at Maui Brewing in Kihei. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (marijuana, grapefruit, melon, resin). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Fairly similar to the Mosaic Mo Betta, although this is a bit more west coasty in the hop aroma. Somehow MBC gets a fair amount of weed odor from their hop treatment; most of their draft pale ales / IPAs have it.
