COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!
2008-2009 vintage: 8.9% abv
2010-2011 vintage: 8.1% abv

CloakedDagger (2277) - - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a hazy goldem with a white head. 8.2% ABV in this version. Nose has some perfumy hops. Rich, malty body - perhaps more fruity than malty. Soft on the palate, solid late bitterness. Ok, but naturally lacks crispiness in the hops. 220216

Bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange/amber color, with a small off-white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral and a little peach. Taste has an initial sweet mix of grapefruit and pine, that is quickly overpowered by the massive hops that stays as a bitter aftertaste.
