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 - 3.75 - NIce golden clear color with a big white head that sticks around forever, leaves a nice lumpy lacing too.
S - 3.5 - Smells like dirty, earthy hops, with bready, raisin-y malt in the background. It says enjoy by July 18th, 2014 so I'm assuming this is how it's supposed to smell.
T - 3.5 - Dirty, earthy hops, with overly sweet malt in the background, and alcohol - a lot of it. This is probably close to the worst IIPA I've had. I'm trying to figure out where the rank taste is coming from because I love amarillo and centennial hops. Maybe they used a bunch of sugar to increase the ABV? Maybe the wheat malt (I've never used it in an IPA)?
M - 3.5 - Alc is so present it ruins the beer. Medium mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter, just bitter. No definition.
O - 3.5 - With a ton of Amarillo hops this beer should taste like straight up orange juice. Instead, it's just sickeningly sweet and dry undefined bitterness.
