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.

phaleslu (9846) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a mostly clear gold with a one-finger thick off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pale malts, straw, apricots, and sugar. Flavor follows suit pretty closely, with plenty of mixed fruit and sugar. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good DIPA.

12oz bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is loaded with dank hops and citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavors of bitter hops, pine, citrus, and some malt. Finishes bitter with a little malty sweetness. Pretty good IIPA.

alobar (3685) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Pours a golden yellow color-unusual for a DIPA. Thin white head with clingy lacing. Aroma of pine with minor floral and citrus notes. Lots of citrus in the flavor with a rather mild hop bitter ending. While weak for a DIPA, a very drinkable, decent beer.

nickd717 (4513) - Sofia, BULGARIA - JUL 30, 2010
12oz bottle shared by largadeer. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves a ring and light foam. Aroma is sweet malt and lots of really resinous hops, along with maybe a little citrus. Flavor is a little sweet and somewhat bitter. Very resinous on the hops without too much else going on. Average mouthfeel - good hop oils, medium body, and a little flatness. Solid east coast DIPA, but not amazing overall.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2010
bottle. from Coles,but drank at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Another solid Hop offering from Southern Tier. Piney resiny hop aroma. Citrusy piney hops. Solid well balanced agressive hop flavor with enough malt backbone to reign it in. Very good. Southern Tier rating #41

Finally. Had this wonderful concoction on tap previously, and been waiting on bottle distribution. That day has arrived, thank the Lord, and found a 6 Pack at my local Total Wine crying out to me to take home to use & abuse. Appearance is surprisingly light--almost a pils/lager look to it. Aroma? VERY light hops standards, focusing on the piney smell rather than the citrusy. Smell is lighter than one would expect from a DIPA. Taste? Innagoddadavida, baby!! A hops vine just sprouted out of the ground, grew to enormous Jack-in-the-Beanstalk proportions, and threaded its way through my tastebuds down my throat. Totally unexpected hoppy bitterness. "I like pleasure spiked with pain..." warbles Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Id have to agree. Palate? Surprisingly smooth and dry after the hops kick in the nads. Friends, Id recommend this fine ale to my associates, and Ill be sure to stock my beer cache with a sixer of this elixir. (That rhymes, kids.)

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nrresundby, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden honey yellow color, with a big frothy white head. Aroma is filled with juicy ctiric hops, grapefruit, some malt and some tropical notes. Flavor is of grapefruit and citric hops, along with some pine on the back of your tounge. I also get some malts, bread, peach and slight amount of tropcial fruit like pineapple, but not as much as in the aroma. Body is light to medium, with a dry mouthfeel. The alcohol is very well hidden, and not traceable at all. Sord of reminds me of a weaker version of their Hoppe. But overall a good DIPA.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Finally a DIPA that doesnt suck. Poured a clear yellow with a dense, rocky, cream colored head that had awesome retention and okay lace. Aroma is citrusy hops, fresh fruits, some ever so slight pale ale malt husks and grist in the aroma (sort of like dog food- but not in a bad way). Taste is sweet, citrusy, slight hop bitterness cut by tropical melons, cantaloupe, mango, cane sugar. Pretty yummy. 8+ abv is hidden.

Draft. Pours golden with an off-white head. Flavor is mild bitterness with a nice sweet malt backbone and lots of citrus on the nose/palate. Very nice.
