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.

Golden hazy body, white head. Aroma of resiny hops, citrus, lots of malt. Falvour has muesli, cereal, bread. Balanced. Hop flavour profile little uncertain, but good.

Surprisingly smooth for a DIPA being 8.2%. The taste of hoppy taste is almost outweighed by the "more than a hint" of grapefruit. Leaves your mouth clean with a great aftertaste. Worth a try any day of the week.

A nice golden amber color, with a strong hop scent. Nice hop flavor with a hint of pine, smooth finish.

rajendra82 (1064) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Attractive gold colored body was clear, and the pour formed a one finder thick head in the pint glass. The smell was pine, hay, and rain soaked earth, and had a caramelized edginess when inhaled deeply. The taste was citric (grapefruit and tangerine) with a sugary sweetness. More of hop showcase, than an assault, the flavor turned peppery at the end of the sip, and stayed that way in the aftertaste. The beer felt sticky and coating in the mouth, and the alcohol warmth was not intrusive. A balanced, yet flavorful DIPA to keep in mind when the craving hits.

jonno (2616) - JAPAN - MAR 27, 2011
Drinks very smooth for 8 plus percent. Initial whiffs of skunk hops give way to a delicate toffee malt body. Doesnt quite deliver on the promise, but a good coating of hop resin - mostly citrus and a little earth have a longish lasting effect on the back of the tongue. Doesnt leave a huge impact, but is very straight forward drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Bottle. Light golden color - very clear. Aroma is very hoppy. Really good - nice and hoppy still with some malt flavor.

after4ever (7713) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Draft at ncbc. Pours a crystal clear brilliant gd with a loose white head. Rich grapefruit and peach nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Resteained toast and caramel notes on the mid palate along with bold grapefruit and peach. A big, bold, explosively flavored dipa thats right in every way. Very well done if somewhat unexceptional.

MacBoost (1791) - Penfield, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Pours a cloudy light orange with a huge whiff of aromatic hops in the nose. Thin head. Bitter, biting citrus hops. Mouthfeel is thin due to a lack of a huge malt backbone. This is hoppy and very clean tasting. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall a great beer. Would certainly buy again.

Bottle; Pour is clear light golden with a modest white head. Retention is on the average side, while the lacing appears a bit spotty in this snifter - The aroma may be a little nicer than the flavor profile, honestly. Caramel and melons on the nose. So no. Not quite a double, I guess. I suppose it makes it a bit more drinkable , though? Melons, Tangerines, caramel - not bad.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, golden, orange tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is nice and very fresh. Big on the tropical fruits. Lots of mango, melon, peach, papaya, and a lighter pineapple-orange. A good amount of grainy, pale malts with a moderate caramel sweetness. Hops are mostly grass with a light mix of pine and floral. Flavor is similar, but a bit sweet. A distinct, sweet pale malt and caramel up front while staying fairly grainy. Lots of piney grapefruits and tangerines along with a good amount of tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness that is grassy and piney as well as citrusy and tropical. Also fairly sweet and grainy with a light resin. Lengthy aftertaste following a slightly fuller than medium, smooth body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a flavorful DIPA/IPA. Fairly sweet and grainy all-around, but there is a nice tropical/citrusy fruit to this along with a pleasant mix of pine and grass. I like the balance on the aroma a bit better, but this was pretty good.
