While there is a great malty foundation to this brew, Mikes Double IPA showcases his appreciate for hops. In fact, he included seven different varieties of American hops, totaling over six pounds of hops per barrel. The hops add an intense floral and citrus aroma to this brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a dense off-white head. Aroma is massive hops - getting too astringent. Solid body, fruity and sweet, but its al just really a base for a massive and unrefined hop soup. Really crude and way too much. 100410

Bottle purchased in a Las Vegas liquor store. Hazy dark amber beer. Malty and rich hop nose. Sweetish beer. Rich marmalade hops with a nice floral tone. Lingering bitter aftertaste. A little different this one and tasty!

fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
Tasting at Paps
Hazy light amber color; medium sized creamy head. Large hop aroma, but strange, with a vein of of butter, cream, phenols, sweat. Quite strong body, but the mouthfeel is rather oily; sweetish toffee flavor, with oily hops, powerful. Not refined, but satisfying when looking for hops.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2009
Amber, cloudy, vibrant. Looks nice. Herbal nose with slight papaya...light orangey notes. Minty, tobaccoey herbal hops, start woody and dry. The malts in this one are toasty initially with some residual sweetness in the back. The problem for me is that as this one warms those sticky, chewy malts become dominant. The beer quickly loses all semblance of drinkability. Disappointing.

bhensonb (14876) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours orange amber with a stiff off-white head. Laces somewhat. Very hoppy aroma. Seems quite mixed. Heavy on floral. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Theres so much hop it isnt worth describing. Decent malt backbone. So much fruit - citrus and other. Its not at all harsh, and its very tasty. Mellow bitter finish. Bitter!

Tmoney99 (14189) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle from Party Town, KY. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy complex floral and citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol burn as it warms. This is a very good beer.
