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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a mostly white head, light lacing and a pillowly head. Soft and sweet with grapefruit, light citrus hoppiness, a hint of pine and a light malt body. Bitter body with a light fruit sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Well done.

Aroma - wonderful floral aroma; Appearance - very clear golden yellow; Taste - very tarte and bitter; Palate - crisp; Overall - too bitter to drink more than a pint at a time. needs more malt balance.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2011
Nice golden-orange hue. Cakey-alcohol nose. Very smooth on the tongue, with a soft carbonation. Malt side has a big, nutty-caramel quality. Hops are floral, grassy and somewhat citrusy. Alcohols there, but mostly hidden. Dryish, moderate bitterness. Decent brew.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle. Orange pour, white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a bit of spice, earthy hops. Flavors of sweet caramel, a bit of booze, fruits, and dull earthy hops. Medium/thick body, sweet, a bit medicinal and a bit hot... bit of a mish-mash. Overall, not sure if this is old or just really unbalanced.

Picked up a 12 oz bottle at TC Craft. This was a great mixture of citrus tones, maltiness, and hop presence for my taste. The texture was also creamy and smooth. Looking forward to taking down a 6 pack.

Brandman (2933) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
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 (1073) - 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 (2682) - 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.
