For our hopping regime we went with Cascade and Nuggets in the boiling addition. Centennials were added every 5 minutes for the last 30 minutes of the boil. We added Crystals into the whirlpool. Dry hopping was done in both the fermentor after primary fermentation and the bright tank. We used a mixture of Chinook, Nuggets, and Sterlings in the fermentors and whole leaf Centennials in the bright tank.

Pours a lite amber with a creamy head that lasts. A very nice aroma of fresh cut grass and Cascade hops. Nicely bitter all the way through. Maybe a bit too much residual sweetness, but as good as any IPA on the East coast. Oh yeah, who the hell dubbed this a "Double IPA"? It's called an IPA on the bottle. It's 7%. Not abundantly hoppy! This is an IPA.

Rich chewy malts came off too sweet at the beginning. We all agreed upon first sip that this one was too sweet. It had some nice strong hops at the finish, but even then, the sweetness lingered in the aftertaste. It wasnt until the last few sips until the hoppy finish seemd to dry my mouth from the sweet sugary taste. Great artwork on the bottle!!

Had a smell like a Jolly Rancher dipped into sugar. Too candy sweet for my taste. Overall, the beer had a good bitter/hop taste and was enjoyable. It was dry.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2004 Pours dark tan with a small head. Amazing floral scent with the flavor bursting in your mouth. Very hoppy, resulting in an impressive IPA.

I was slightly disappointed with this one, considering what I traded to get it. The pour is a deep coppery color, with a huge rocky head, and some incredible lacing. The aroma is just syrupy and floral. The hop profile is great in the flavor, but that is all there is, absolutely no malt backbone in this one. The mouthfeel is sweet and slightly buttery, creamy but thin.

Pours with a finger of creamy white head. The Aroma is of sweet malt and piney hops. The flavor is of a rounded but very upfront citrus and hop blend, with a very nice soft but balanced malt backbone. Very creamy/velvety palate. This seems like more of an IPA then an IIPA, even though its seems to be misnamed it is probably one of the best IPA's I have ever had. Right up there with bells two hearted in book.

desurfer (1301) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2004
This is a very good IPA. Hops all over the place! Aroma is very piney and floral, and more citrusy notes come out in the flavor. Finishes dry and sticky. Good!

Pours a hazy copper orange with a relatively small 1cm white head which dissipates at a decent rate. Nose is very hoppy--I can smell this stuff a mile away. Citrus orange aroma in there too. Smells yummy. Well, if you're a hophead, then this is a good brew. Hoppy throughout with a pungent bitterness to finish. A very nice IPA.

Nice amber/orange color with a frothy white head. Floral aroma, with some citrus and lovely, earthly hops. Good smooth flavor. Hoppy. Creamy mouthfeel. Some caramel as well. A very well done Double IPA!!
