Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine May 2007.

The American Double IPA has been a trendy beer style for over a year now, earning its own style designation and continually coveted by hopheads. Let's see what this Boulder brewer has to say about it.

Pale copper color, with a faint haze that goes away after the beer warms up a bit. More-than-sufficient head retention as the lace clings to the glass most of the way down. Heavy on the grapefruit hop resin, with piney and herbal hop notes and a spike of fruity esters in the aroma. Big crispness in a moderate body. Solid kernel of malt sweetness is first to show up, but is quickly pushed down by a forceful bitterness. Hops leave a long burning sting, with suggestions of freshly cut grass, grapefruit rind and pine. A little metallic and husky. Malt drops out and leaves the mouthfeel a bit thin with an alcohol that kicks the palate hard with esters and a faint solvent flavor. Finishes bitter with a breath of alcohol.

Not half bad, but compared to the many Double IPAs out there, this one sits in the middle of the road. Any kind of balance is lost here, but it's still worth a try for any hopheads out there.

A - This beer is a beautiful translucent dark amber, with a fine, almost-white head. Very rich color!

S - I get a lot of plum, dark fruits, some grape... slight hints of chocolate or toffee. Not a strong smell, but pleasant.

T - Same as smell, but the hops are much more present. Aftertaste is fruity and hoppy, and sorta dark for a DIPA. Alcohol is masked pretty well as a 10% ABV, but there is a pretty noticeable warmth in the throat.

MF - Smooth and slightly on the heavy side. Medium hop oils on the palate. Carbonation is medium-light, just right for my liking.

Overall this DIPA is heavier and fruitier than others that I've had, it leans toward being a Belgian almost- with much more hops. It's unique for its style and much under-appreciated. Maybe this was a good batch or something. Usually I agree with BA reviews but I'm seeing much more in this beer than what I see here. It's quite enjoyable and I recommend picking it up!

A- The deep color is impressive. The clarity is interesting. It pours a bit sloppy with no real head. Bottle states best by 7/8/14.

S- Very weak aroma. I can smell the hops, but it doesn't hit me very hard. There is nothing particularly off putting, but it doesn't grab my attention either.

T- The taste has some citrus flavor. It doesn't sit and stay awhile. It passes very quickly with no impressive aftertaste. It's a refreshing beer for such a high alcohol content. It's smooth, not overpowering. Doesn't leave me wanting a second.

M-It holds a cream feel in my mouth. There is a spotty feeling, doesn't fill my taste buds. It hits one corner, then leaves quickly. Gives it a mysterious undertone.

O- I would enjoy this beer in late August on a porch in northern Wisconsin. I appreciate it for what it is/wants to be. It's very non-conformist, I'm going to do what I want- kinda beer. It's just being what it wants to be, not impressing, but not unreliable either. I would drink it again, just not one after another. It's really good at hiding the high alcohol content.
