A big, hoppy IPA with plenty of bite! Our assertive, hop-centric Double IPA has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral, not-for-the-timid!

A great pick from a local brewery. This beer pours almost amber with a nice head that trails the glass. The smells are mostly pine and citrus from the amount of hops in the beer. The taste is full and thick, with pine sap almost coming to mind. This beer is definitely for hop enthusiasts but seems to remain just levelheaded enough to be drinkable by everyone. If you're looking to get into more bitter and intense beers,

This brewery came out of nowhere, at least for me, local brewery making good beers, and suddenly have a ton of them. They probably had these for a bit, then started shipping all of them to MA recently. Either way enjoying them. Bottled 8/13/14, this batch at 7.6% abv

Pours a smaller fizzy bubbly head that sticks around for a while, wafts of lacing, very murky mostly orange slight reddish amber hue.

Nose decent hops, some bright citrus and grapefruit, a bit of a grapefruit pith, candied orange marmalade like, but not very sweet just a bit of a candy amber malt. Quite light overall though.

Taste brings more of the hops, again on the lighter side though, a mild citrus, some grapefruit, a little pith and faint candied orange peel, no sweet marmalade though. Mild amber sweet like malt, little toasty note, but plenty juicy mostly from the hops, which turn a bit spicy and earthy. Mild to fair sweetness, with a little alcohol tasting booze coming on strong on the back end, especially on the drying finish, which lingers with some mild grapefruit rind, a little melon rind very rind like, mild spicy hop too.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, some warming booze mostly on the back end, decent carb.

Overall OK, nothing too special, a decent DIPA, hops are so-so, mostly rind and pith and a mild grapefruit, spicy too, decent malt profile, and nice balance, but everything is toned down quite a bite, pretty light.
