Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.40% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Big juicy American hops burst from this unfiltered deep amber ale. The caramel sweetness takes a backseat only to the abundance of citrusy, piney flavors and aromas. Dominated by Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Falconer's Flight hops, our double IPA has been dry-hopped for over a month.

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

12 ouncer bought as a single at Spirit Haus in Amherst, Ma. Bottled 2.4.10 etched onto the neck of the bottle. Pours darker honey amber, hazed, medium khaki head, typical moderate bits of lace. Dull nose of bready malt and leafy hops. I'd call this one a slightly better then average DIPA, lacks the pungent and bold hop crunch, I'd like to see in a world class offering of this style. Hops here seem a bit muted, and lack any citric or fruity interest. Ho Hum, how jaded have we become?

4.13/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Hard to gauge the color as the restaurant was fairly dark, but I'm guessing a lighter amber/golden. It clear, mildly active, but with a thick white foam, good retention, and very thick lacing the didn't wash away. Very attractive.

Some moderately strong boozy heat just barely leads over the piny and citrusy hops, with sweet maltyness hanging right in there. Not bad at all.

Fairly sharp piny bitterness and robust hoppy flavors balanced well by an assertive malty backbone, and noticeable booze.

some tingles up front, a rich full body, not too dry or bitter in the finish.

Almost finished it before the food came, had to ration myself to make it last. So I'm saying it's pretty drinkable. Was somewhat surprised as I've never been overly impressed by Sebago. This one is good.

From the 355 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 13, 2010. The pour is a cloudy amber-copper with vitually no head or long lasting lacing. Yes, the aroma is overly hopped just as promised. The hops are very floral in nature. It tastes more like flowers than hops and it is a bit overpowering in that regard. There is also a juicy sweetness in the taste but really it is all bitter hops. The hops mask the 8% ABV.

3.08/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Allagash tulip glass. Bought as part of a four pack for cheap considering that this is a DIPA and is over 8%.

Appearance: Orange brown, reminds me of fall in New England. Lots of sediment floating around the glass, but the beer is far from opaque. Two finger beige, pillowy head recedes nicely into a thin lacing and leaves some foam along the glass as it recedes.

Aroma: Stinging, astrigent (almost medicinal) pine hop aromas are strong, but not as dominant as you might expect. They are a little harsh on the nose though. Some sweet, almost fruity, malt rounds out the aroma, but doesn't make up for the unpleasant hop aroma.

Taste: Hops are here, but this feels nothing like a DIPA. Neither the hops nor the malt take center stage. Both seem to be here in equal proportion. The hops need to play a bigger role here. Most of the initial hop flavor is just some medicinal pine notes. The only place I feel the hops is in the aftertaste. Here there is finally some nice bitter hops. the malt is nice here though. Nice round, sweet flavor.

Mouthfeel: Here I have another problem. I want my IPAs to be crisp and bright. The mouthfeel here is too syrupy and does not lighten the flavors at all. This counters the flavors of teh beer which are light and crisp.

Drinkability: Flavors are light and unoffensive, and the ABV is managable for a DIPA, but nothing draws me to keep drinking this. The flavor is straightforward and overall, I don't love the flavor profile.

Overall, a weak DIPA thats more like an IPA. Flavor profile is average and its not as refreshing as it should be. A myriad of contradictions here, but its still drinkable and with some nice malt notes. The hops could play a much bigger role.

I bought this beer because of the statement on the bottle. I got this in a 4 pack and shared it with my dad. He's not much of an IPA drinker but this may have converted him. It has an piny citrus aroma. The beer is hazy amber with a nice thick head. The brew starts sweet and buttery but quickly becomes bitter. The bitterness lingers on the. This beer is not for the faint of heart, those looking for a west coast IPA this is not. It has a pleasant aroma but the hops in this beer are mainly for bittering.

This was not bad I liked it. It is similar in some ways to a 90 minute with it's malt taste definate example of a east coast IPA.

A - Copper orange with a small head lots of lacing on the side.

S - malts some light pine light citrus.

M - creamy bit of a afterfeel not blown away.

D- this is good I like this style and would have again and the price wasn't bad for the style at 7.99 a 4 pack.

3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

pours pale copper with an off-white head.

aroma is of caramel, citrus, pine with mild alcohol notes

on the palate it enters slightly sweet and fruity. as it warms in my mouth, the malty citrus turns real solventy and resiny. bitter acids grab the midpalate and bite hard after the swallow. resiny bitterness lingers

i like the texture of the beer. good soft carbonation and nice body. there's enough sweetness to hold it together

overall, generally liked the beer. wasn't crazy about the bittering hops and the hot alcohol really is not for me. the nose also left me wanting more, but generally: big, malty, bitter and strong. could use some tweaking.

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

Reviewed from my notes of a generous half pour in a pint glass at Sebago's Full Moon cask event. This was a preview keg of the upcoming batch of Full Throttle to be released this spring. It is a very hazy--some would say foggy--orange. It has a big head of white soap bubbles. There is a very dry, grainy hop aroma. It smells old fashioned, and brings to my mind images of antiques stores. It has a sweet, hearty hop flavor. There is a bit of a graham cracker taste to it. The aftertaste is subtle, but the hop bitterness is there. It has a medium body (maybe just slightly heavier than medium) and a slightly sweet and sticky mouthcoating. It's very good for an 8.2% ABV beverage. It's also very drinkable considering the high alcohol content. I can see myself going through an entire four pack of the Full Throttle all by myself, assuming the bottled version of this beer is as good as the cask version.

4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer begins with an expected enough look: Solid copper with a bright and glowing haze (dry hopped), very good head formation and retention with some lacing. Definately looks the bill.

A blended balance of big malts swirl with big hops making me sway from Double IPA thoughts to American Barleywines. Though the hop variety shines well with pine, citrus, and fresh cut grasses; the more-than-adequate malt sweetness prevents the hops from becomming showcased as needed for a great Double IPA.

Quite fruity with the malts and yeast give the impression of English ales, especially up front and early in the nose. Fortunately, the beer dries out a bit at mid palate allowing for a much more drinkable and enjoyable beer in the end. Equally as fortunate, the beer seems to be largely error free- only a slight fusal and acetone taste deep within the sweetness of the malts and would be hard to notice if not looking for reasons to mark it down.

With all that's great about the beer, it still seems to lack that 'it' quality that it takes to compete with the Leviathan Imperial IPA's, 90 Minutes, and Double Troubles out there. Maybe a bit drier and less sweet and fruity early on would help. Also the larger focus on hop flavor and aroma could set it apart as well.

Thanks jlindros!

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

Poured into snifter glass

A: Semi clear rusty brown color with light head

N: Decent bill of noble hops with some pine, a musty charred earthy malt nose, touch of brown sugar

T: Starts with earthy dark malts and some brown sugar, some juicy fruits in the center, some hop bitterness in the front, with juicy hops in the center, the bitterness seems to build as it goes, some spiciness and pretty sweet taste, huge malt and sweetness seem to mask some of the hops and alcohol, but there is some alcohol in there as well

M: Pretty thick and sticky, light on carbonation

F: Still pretty sweet on the finish with lots of bitter hops hit at the end with some pine and lots of spiciness, touch of citrus, lots of juicy hops that make your mouth water, bitterness fades shortly after

Final thoughts: A pretty decent DIPA, lots of malts and sweetness, lots of hops on the finish but not as much at the front (could have been more up front), it finishes a little too sweet too, but still masks the alcohol well, it sticks to the mouth well too

Pours a four finger cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is serious hops balanced with malts. Sweet piney finish. Higher ABV is totally hidden. Decent DIPA. $2.70 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

I received this as part of a trade - thanks to my east coast connection who had been down in the states recently.

It pours a very attractive orange amber colour which is quite cloudy. The quarter inch head soon dissapated to a slight ring of foam.

The smell is surprisingly slight for an IIPA of this strength. Some sweeter citrus fruit and apricots are found within.

The taste is nice but there's something about it which stops it from being really really good. It starts off with hops, sweet fruit and then transitions into a slightly overbitter almost burnt taste. While it has good complexity there is something a little strange which is hard to describe. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is smooth, slightly sticky and low on carbonation. Drinkability is about average.

Reviewed on 06/22/2009. On tap at Sunset Grill. Pours a light brown/orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweaty, grassy hops. Flavor is very bitter initially with hop oils and grassy hops and a sweet finish. The sweetness is a bit overpowering. Meh overall.

Out of a bomber this beer was a slightly hazy amber color with two-fingers of khaki head. The retention was very good as a thin cap and the lacing in consistent fishnets. The aroma was of caramel malt, doughy malt, floral hops, citrus hops and light alcohol heat. The flavors were a well-balanced blend of caramel malt, doughy malt, orange rind, and light grapefruit. The finish was mildly bitter and pleasant. The mouthfeel was smooth, the body full and the carbonation light. One of the best beers they make.

Another nice one I received in a recent BIF, this one I had in the fridge for a while before I decided to bust it out. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, I used this one as a nightcap on 06/24/2009.
 
The pour was decent enough. Medium amber in color with some light golden highlights in it. A small head, maybe a quarter inch high rose up quickly and faded just as quick, leaving a broken crown of almost bare liquid. A modest hop profile at first, I have to say I was not terribly blown away by this one. Starts to redeem itself a touch in the flavor though as I finally get a hold of a light citrus profile. Nice hints of orange, grapefruit, and a nice biscuit like flavor coming through mid palate on me. A heavier medium body that was not terribly high on the carbonation, but still it was a decent effort and was fairly easy to drink.
 
Overall this was unfortunately very forgettable for me. It just did not hit heavy enough at first for me and left me looking for more. Not a bad example of the style, just not really what I was looking for. Maybe super fresh or on top much better.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured a dark amber, slightly cloudy. 1 finger slightly off white head, with decent retention; it soon levels off to a few mm thick coating. Very nice lacing all the way down.

Smell: Very strong hop fragrance at first, but subsequent smells are weaker. Sweet and syrupy. Very juicelike, with a strong grape smell. Deeper down are some darker, slightly smoky malts. Alcohol is also present. A slightly off fragrance.

Taste: Strong alcohol bite, both at the front on the tongue and at the end on the back of the throat. Strong hop taste, but the flavors are indistinct. Sweet and syrupy. Also with the strong hops come a slightly soapy taste. Some malts at the end, but nothing special.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer, with a big alcohol bite. Big.

Drinkability: A decent DIPA, but not great. The alcohol bite is a bite too strong and not well hidden. The hops are strong, but indescript. Sort of just hits you hard, without an subtlety. I didn’t mind drinking this one, but I probably won’t have this again.

3.98/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - This is a deep, brownish-orange in color with a modest head.

Smell - There is a nice, balanced hop bouquet here but it is the massive, sweetish malts that steal the show. They are rightly toasted and doughy which might disappoint the hardcore hopheads but the beer aficionado will be greatly appreciative.

Taste - The sweetish malts take over at the taste. I am enjoying the big malt flavors but you can't really call it balanced at this point. The hops are all but worn out at this point.

Mouthfeel - This is huge in the mouth. It is close to full-bodied with little bitterness.

Drinkability - I enjoyed this big, malty DIPA but others looking for a heavy hop profile will be disappointed.

We did a blind tasting of four IIPAs, with Pisgah Vortex, Sebago Full Throttle, Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Derek's homebrew - this one was lost out to the homebrew in the opening bracket, but then lay a beating on the Vortex 1 to come in third.

Copper body with a nice tan head and good lacing. Very resiny aroma with lots of pine and grapefruit. Sweet citrus flavour, with pine and chewy, almost bready malt. Fairly slick mouthfeel. I liked this one, and I guess its a credit to the homebrew that it caused an upset.

Got this bottle from mikeale, thank you for the bottle.

Poured this in an over sized wine glass at 50 degrees.

Appearance: A very beautiful orange color with a reddish tint. There is a two finger head that is ivory, foamy, and creamy. The clarity of the beer is hazy, there is some light that is able to pass through. There is some lacing on the wine glass.

Nose: A nice maltiness with some sweetness. There is a nice pine, floral, and citrus aroma.

Taste: A very grapefruit, pine and floral emits from the beer. There is a good malt backbone with a slight touch of sweetness.

Overall: The mouth feel of the beer is carbonated. The body of the beer is medium and the finish last for a few moments. This beer has a wonderful rich flavor that you would expect from a DIPA it is not fantastic, but good.

Nice cloudy medium amber with some definite yeast-floaties. Modest creamy head. Decent aroma of fruity, citrusy hops.

Flavor is good, pretty subtle for a DIPA. A lot of earthy, yeasty flavors combined with a heavy dose of bitterness. Hops are a bit fruity, not that compelling in my opinion. Mouthfeel is nice, quite smooth, and alcohol is well-disguised. Not the best New England version of the style, but a good effort.

Bottle has a Brewed on 3/3/09 stamp on it. Very fresh indeed.

Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a dense and creamy ivory colored head. Settles very slowly, staying chunky and pretty full and leaving some webbing on the sides.

Smell is not overly hoppy, but has a nice resiny, herbal hop quality to it. There's a bit of grapefruity citrus, as well, and some sweet caramel. It's pretty weak actually, and especially in the nose of DIPA I want to be smacked in the face with hops. This doesn't do that.

Like the smell this isn't the hoppiest of DIPAs, but it's nicely balanced and there's enough hops to give it a little bit of pop. The hops are primarily herbal and citrus flavored. It's almost malt forward for a DIPA, with a big caramel malty backbone. That's somewhat backwards given the style, but I'm more accepting of balance in the taste than I am the smell, and there's just enough hops to make it work pretty well. Moderate bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is on the full side of a medium body and is quite creamy. Slick and smooth, almost chewy in fact. Carbonation is pretty modest, giving it a soft, smooth feel.

This isn't too bad but it's certainly not hoppy enough to be in a class with the best versions of the style. Don't expect a hop bomb going in and you'll find a brew that's pretty easy to put back.

The pansy known as number1bum gave this one to me in our most recent trade...learn how to not be a complete moron.

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic. No freshness date anywhere that I could see which I'm not a fan of when it comes to DIPA's.

Pours a murky orange/brown with a two finger off-white head. A fair amount of stick holds on to the sides of the glass throughout tasting. The nose wasn't what I was hoping for. Syrupy hops, caramel malts, and gritty earth. Some pine underneath, but this one is really lacking in the aroma for the style. Taste is pretty similar to the smell. Muted hops, sugary malts, and toasted grains. Once again, this is not what a DIPA should be, even for an East coast version. Medium to full body with a somewhat creamy feel. Average carbonation with a dry aftertaste. I don't know if this beer is well past its prime, or just a poorly made DIPA...either way I'm not liking this beer. If I could find somekind of dating on the bottle I would review accordingly, but since I can't, this one gets a poor rating. Thanks a lot Josh, you're worthless. Luckily I have a Stegmaier Brewhouse Bock on deck to save my poor tastebuds...

edit: so this was bottled on 3/3/09 which baffles me even more because the hops were weak all around.
