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”.

Appearance- orange amber with thin lacing on the glass

Smell- mild light malt sweetness, some of the floral hop character comes to play as well but is on the lighter end

Taste- hop bitterness is on the lighter side and sweetness is a bit subtle without much assertion

Mouthfeel- light and easily drinkable

Overall- mild IPA, a very slightly upped grain and hop bill would distinct this beer a bit more. I've tasted this in a can and I remember it being more impressive.

Serving type: on-tap

Received a 4 pack of this in the parking lot of the Laughing Dog Brewery from Vern, the rep who brings Idaho and Montana beers into Alberta these days. Thanks! From a 473 ml blue can. Pours out a clear burnished copper hue, tall foamy off-white head that retains well.

Clean floral and citrus hops on the nose, toffee and clean grains as well.

Clean biscuit and caramel malt up front in the flavour, spicy, herbal hops in the middle, with more spicy hops on the finish, and a clean yet herbally astringent aftertaste.

Medium-bodied mouthfeel, smooth silky texture with medium carbonation.

If not for the abv% this would make an ideal session ale, and that aside, it still makes a great offering to spend an evening with. Very clean on all fronts, yet strikes me more as an English IPA than an American based on the flavour profile of the hops, but that's merely from the lack of whollaping grapefruit in the mix. Definitely an IPA worth checking out, I hope to see more of this available locally sometime soon.

Kiddwhiz hooked this beer up, thanks man! Poured from can, awesome name btw, to a pint glass the beer pours a translucent copper color with orange edges in the light. A small half finger off-white head with some retention and nice lacing. Malty and floral hoppy in the nose. More balanced and malt than I anticipated. Somewhat subdued. The flavor follows suit with a foundation of caramel malts. The hops then begin to blend and provide a balanced flavor. Sweet. Medium bitterness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and sweetness on the tongue. The beer seems a bit under carbonated though medium bodied. Overall, not a bad offering and nice to have sampled!

Thanks to Deuane for sharing this can with us, my first Montana beer!

A - Pours deep amber orange with a dense one finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of sweet caramel malt, earthy hops, dulled citric fruit, and some light spice. This one may be a tiny bit old but it still has lots to offer.

T - Starts off with quite a bit of sweet caramel malt slowly giving way to a mix of earthy hops, dulled citric fruits, and some pine resin. This one really is malt forward. Finish is a mix of bitterness and sweetness, clinging to the pallet.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Bitter-Sweet feel that clings to the pallet long after consumption.

O - Nothing mind blowing but still a solid IPA. Glad I got to try it, thanks again Deuane.
