COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Take an India Pale Ale and feed it steroids, ergo the term Double IPA. Although open to the same interpretation as its sister styles, you should expect something robust, malty, alcoholic and with a hop profile that might rip your tongue out. The Imperial usage comes from Russian Imperial stout, a style of strong stout originally brewed in England for the Russian Imperial Court of the late 1700s; though Double IPA is often the preferred name. You can thank west coast American brewers for this somewhat reactionary style. "Thanks!"

jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Can. Bright golden in color with a large white head. Aroma is fairly mild, piney and sweet. Taste is hop octane; lots of piney and sweet citrus with a warming sense of the high abv. Not overly sweet or bitter, but plenty of hop resin flavors.
