Notes/Commercial Description:
Double Haul IPA scores big with our hop-headed friends. Of course, the folks at NABA agreed, awarding it a gold medal at the 2008 brewfest. Brewed with lots of hops and a solid body, Double Haul IPA is a beer lover’s dream. After a couple of Double Haul®s you’ll feel like you’re out with your buddies and it’s FISH ON! for both of you. Cascade hops for flavoring and finish provide a mouthy cascade of hoppiness! Brewed with love and packaged to go, so…”Take me with you”.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a billowy white head of two finger height. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is mainly a blend of a citrus grapefruit hop aroma and a bready and slightly doughy smell. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a tropical fruit natures as well as some nice pine hop smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather strong bitter grapefruit flavor mixed with a drier cracker like malt bill. As the taste advances the grapefruit remains relatively constant but is joined by other hop flavors of a more pine and earthy nature. The little bit of a fruit and caramel that are present upfront, quickly fade with the hops really taking command of the taste as the flavors move onto the end. All in all, due to the loss of the sweet and the increase in the hop, as well as the drier malt and a little bit of booziness that sneaks it way into the later portions of the taste, one is left with a dry and bitter taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner side for a brew of 6.5 % abv. with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body is actually quite appropriate for the very dry flavors of the brew adding a dimension of crispness to the overall feel.

Overall – A decent IPA overall that is a bit on the crisper side. While decent, it really is nothing all that out of the ordinary. One to give a go to, in order to see what you think. But for me, its just sorta standard.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Dark copper body with a thick, creamy, white head. Grain and cereal aroma; bready. Taste follows the aroma with the addition of a mild hop bitterness; bread crust. Medium bodied; dry finish.

For a DIPA, the lack of a bold hop aroma is rather inexplicable. The hop bitterness doesn't really rise up to any great deal either. It's there, it's noticeable, but hardly "double" big. On the bright side, this is a very malty ale. The flavors favor warm baked bread and honey. An interesting beer, tasty overall, just not quite what one would expect for a DIPA.
