Notes/Commercial Description:
"This big, glowing, powerful IPA is packed with assertive Northwest hops that are floral, citrusy and resinous. A healthy dose of Munich malt helps to provide backbone and balance against the hoppy attack. The result? Explosive!"

Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner and Munich Malt, Centennial and Cascade hops. 7.0% ABV, 75 BU

Wow! This is my first review. I would rather be a giver then just a leech for all your reviews so thank you all.

God bless this beer! Wonderful thing God did ain't it?
Awesome, fresh and revitalizing to my mouth! The aftertaste reminds me and makes me think of running along the ocean and being refreshed and awakened during the summer, except in my mouth. Lots of hoppiness to it. One word to describe would be "awakening." I had just purchased an 8-beer sampler from Dublin Pub in Portland, OR and this was my favorite by far. Not terribly bitter but still good. This was one of the most distinct IPA's I have had due to the wonderful floral aftertaste. I'm still trying to figure out the different tastes in beer so I'm not so sure but here goes: I think there was a hint of citrus and pine in it.
IPA's are the bomb and work those bitter taste buds into maturation and live for GOOD BEER! This is one of my favorite beers I have ever had!!! God bless and God loves you. =)

Double Mtn. Brewing 'Hop Lava IPA' @ 7.0% , served from a 500 ml bottle purchased for $6

A-pour is a pale yellow/gold from the bottle to a slightly hazy gold in the glass with a big frothey white head leaving a spotty lace along the pint

S-very little hop presence , no malty backbone

T-citrus more than pine for a 'NW IPA'

MF-ok/good carbonation , feels full bodied

Ov-ok beer , lacks something (maybe forgeting the 'Pacific' in NW IPA ? ;)
