Notes/Commercial Description:
Grand Teton’s Double IPA was born in our renowned Cellar Reserve program. Fans of our Double IPA and XX Sweetgrass demanded we brew the style on a regular basis. In response, we created Lost Continent in 2009 and updated it for 2010. This year's version is brewed with well over three pounds of hops per barrel in the kettle and another half-pound per barrel of “dry hops” in two additions during conditioning. A revised fermentation program has produced a more traditional Double IPA flavor profile--drier, less malty, more hoppy.

We use only American Pacific Northwest hops. Galena hops are added early in the boil for smooth, balanced bitterness. We add Columbus, Centennial and Amarillo later in the boil for flavor, and Columbus, Centennial and Simcoe in the whirlpool for aroma.

For even more aroma, we dry-hop with Summit, Columbus, Amarillo and Cascade hops in the conditioning tank, and dry-hop again right before bottling with whole-flower Cascade hops. The result is fruity, floral and complex, with notews of tangerine zest and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice.

Idaho 2-Row Brewers’ Malt and German CaraHell and Vienna malts give this ale its lovely pale copper hue, with flavors of orange marmalade and dried apricots, supported by a strong backbone of hoppy bitterness.

4.5/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

pours an enticing cloudy golden orange with creamy white head

rich aromas of resiny hops, pine, citrus, grass, and a slight herbaly notes and a slight biscuity edge

solid resin pine upfront with slight herbal notes, lemon, somewhat spicy hops on the finish, with dry pine resonating again. Solid yet hidden bready malt is there, but the hops really shine.

super smooth, medium body with the hops just dominating for the duration. the dry, piney/spicy sensation lingers long after swallowing and the hop flavors really mingle quite well.

an excellent IPA. It has everything I like and nothing I don't. A big sturdy hoppiness with resin upfront leads way to a plethora of flavor, depth, and complexity that just begs for sip after sip. The long finish is crisp, clean, and lingering with plenty of action. I wish I had another one.

4.28/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap into a tulip glass.

A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.

S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.

T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.

M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.

O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.

Serving type: on-tap
