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.

Pours a murky, orange/light brown with lots of sediment and white/tan/orange-ish head that leaves residue all over. smells of sweet, citrusy, piney hops, with an overwhelming fruit characteristic reminiscent of strawberries. just fantastic smelling.

tastes largely of pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. orange and tangerine seem to be present as well. purely fruit IPA. exceptional. this is like the fruit juice parents take to their kids for an after-soccer-game snack, only with alcohol and a nice bitter hop bite that lingers along with the sweetness of the fruit in the aftertaste. reminds me of the Dole pineapple juice that is so awesome. i could definitely drink this for a while.

mouthfeel is thick and chewy, lots of sediment. reminds me of high pulp orange juice. honestly, this is like a good mixed fruit juice in the morning with a bagel and eggs. perfectly carbonated and drinkable as all hell. highly recommended for summer consumption. a great ipa for anyone who loves fruit juice and hops.

overall a great DIPA. tastes and smells a lot like fresh hopslam, which makes me think that it would have a lot higher ratings if it had the same hype around it as does hopslam. this beer is waaay underrated in my opinion.

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
