Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ThatsThatDude on 05-30-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Mostly features Galaxy and Amarillo hops. Curt loves to use Apollo hops in his hoppy beers so we threw in a small splash of those as well. This Double IPA comes in at 9% ABV, 90 IBUs and is loaded with flavors of orange citrus, kiwifruit and passionfruit. It’s a different hop combination than we are familiar with and has a really unique flavor to it.

Pours a light amber gold color. Darker than most of Cellarmaker's hoppy stuff but still on the paler end of the DIPA spectrum. Small white head. Growler pour might be affecting that. Little lacing. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. Peaches, white grape juice, pine, some tangerine. There's some malt sweetness, gets a bit bubblegum-ish. A touch of booze. The taste has a lot of hop flavor but is a bit harsher than I've come to expect from Cellarmaker. Lots of that peachy, white grape juice hop flavor. Fairly dank. Big pine note with a dose of resin. More bitterness than expected. Some citrus pith. A bit boozy but not bad for 9% abv. It's still fairly subdued but there's more malt charater than I'm used to in their beers. Pretty standard carbonation, maybe a bit low. A touch of hop oiliness. Finish is a bit harsh with booze and bitterness. Good DIPA but probably the weakest of the hoppy stuff on recently. It's more of an old school, punchy hop DIPA. It's hard to call it disappointing because the beer is still quite good, but my standards for this brewery's hoppy offerings have gotten a bit ridiculous.
