COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale. Our double IPA is a hop lovers dream. Citrusy and clean with an incredible finish.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, light pine and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapoefruit, light pine and a hint of orange with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange pour with a loose white head that doesnt last very long. Aroma is surprisingly malty but is also, less surprisingly, quite hoppy too, with notes of grapefruit, apricot, pine, toffee and orange. Flavour is very similar to the aroma however the citrusy hops are more pronounced and there are additional hints of grass, corn and spices. Mouthfeel is a little bit oily with lots of tingly carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. By itself this is quite a nice brew, although there are many other DIPAs readily available which are equally, if not more impressive. This also has a particularly rich malty character which is common to a few of Southern Tiers beers which makes them less sessionable IMO. Still not bad overall.

355ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Pour a fluffy white head, blanketing the glassware. Clear, well almost, golden body. Succulent aromatic with orange and lemony hops. Sweet orange fruits in flavour blended with mid-sweet malts and followed by grapefruit shells that gradually become more and more dry and bitter towards the ending. A pleasure to drink this one (at home, Troms, 30.10.2010).

Nice golden pour with a small white head that doesnt stick around and nice lacing. Citrus stands out on the smell for me. Obviously some hops, but I dont pick up a lot of piney or earthy scents. Very smooth taste. The hops dont seem to have that "punch you in the face" effect Ive become so familiar with. A lot of citrus and more malts than I expected. Much more light and creamy on the palate than the smell or look would give away. Carbonation ties the drink together nicely.

DuffMan (10057) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
On tap at the Map Room, Chicago. Very hazy golden, clingy white head. Beautiful tropical fruit and resin hop aroma. Flavour is very much hop-driven, grapefruit rind, conifer resin, nice bitter finish. Delicious.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Pours a clear Golden Straw color with a small frothy white head. Huge floral hops aroma, with some spice and sweetness, a hint of alcohol at the end. Taste is Grapefruit and sweet biscuity malts. Smoothes out nicely as it warms. Like so Many 2IPAs out there, nothing different or amazing, but clearly a good one, Ill have to get a "Big" bottle next time.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BEERS THAT I KEEP BUYING AND DRINKING WITHOUT REVIEWING, GOT IT AGAIN TONIGHT AND LUCKILY 3 BEERS IN IM HERE WITH MY REVIEW, THIS ONE POURS A CLOUDY GOLDEN WITH A SWEET CHERRY CITRUS AROMA AND VIRTUALLY NO HEAD. PINEY SPRUCE AND CITRUS HOPS FLAVORS NICE AMOUNT OF SWEET AND BITTERNESS LIKE A GOOD IPA SHOULD HAVE ,DRY AND CLEAN NICE FINISH. I ALMOST WANT TO CHEW ON THIS BEER, ITS THAT GOOD. YET AFTER A MORE EXTENSIVE THOUGHT I DO HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS IS AN INFERIOR IMPERIAL IPA, NOT THAT ITS BAD JUST NOT TOP OF THE LINE FOR AN "IMPERIAL".

12 ounce bottle courtesy of phaleslu. Thanks! Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium frothy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of spicy and earthy hops with some tropical fruit notes. The taste is tropical fruits, earthy notes and an herbal, floral finish. Some toffeeish malts peek through. Medium bodied.

12oz btl. Pours a nearly clear golden with a super frothy white head. Has a aroma of piney hop and citrus. Tastes is of big citrus and a crisp hop bitterness that last through the finish. A good sixer.
