Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: KI9A on 10-07-2010

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Double India Pale Ale is bigger in hop character and alcohol than our Extra Pale Ale. It is sure to please even the most discerning hop-head! Also known as Imperial IPA, this intensely hoppy, yet very drinkable beer lets the malty characteristics take a step back and allows the hops to really shine. Brewed with almost two (2) pounds of hops per barrel and left unfiltered, Six Row Double IPA showcases the citrusy and piney characteristics of the Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

4.18/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: A nice honey-orange body with one-finger off-white head and decent lacing.

Smell: the presence of biscuit/caramel malt was prevalent, but the hops seemed to be lacking aromatically. Still it was a bit citrusy.

Taste: This IPA was stronger in the malt than many. The flavor was the sameas the nose, but also included grapefruit and orange peel, with a faint bit of pine.

Mouthfeel: A nice balance of carbonation in a medium-heavy body. Had a bit of an oily finish.

Drink: This was a stronger beer, but not taxing on the palate, despite being flavorful.

Overall, a good DIPA that I would like to drink again. (627 characters)

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

Pour was a light copper with an orange hue. Light head and retention.

Light pine and sweet fruit. My only complaint was the scent needed more. It was nice, but a bit faint.

Very well balanced. Lightly sweet malt with a candy and citrus hop flavor. Very fruity. There was a hint of booze through out.

Moderate carbonation and full body. slight oily resin feel.

Good stuff, not over powering in any way. nice and balanced, a great sipper. (441 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: In a snifter, medium golden, lasting head, good lace chunks.

S: Piney hops

T: Piney hops, some citrus. Strong malt backbone. Everything works very well.

M: Medium body, perfect carbonation.

D: Well, I'm not a hophead. This beer really hits a nice note with me, as it is a big IBU, big ABV beer, that has a such great balance, I can drink this everyday. Another fine effort! (388 characters)
