Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: illidurit on 05-09-2009

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.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

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.

Draft service into a goblet at Brix in Sunset Beach.

A: Slightly hazy and luminous light orange-amber with one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Piney hops are featured alongside juicy, semi-dark citrus and a backbone of shy caramel malt--it's there, but it's trying not to be noticed. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with extremely bright and energetic hop aromatics that combine grapefruit juice and zest as well as darker citrus with resinous pine. Acidity lends a further citric quality that elevates the early flavor qualities even more. Flavors deepen in the middle, staying bright, fruity, and aromatic with practically all hops represented. Bitterness develops quickly into the finish, becoming intense, as toasted and caramel malt are able to gain traction. Aromatic flavors, mild by comparison to their previous intensities, linger to the end. No alcohol is detected.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, sticky on the palate and lively with acidity that creates a resonant buzz in the corners of the mouth threatening sensory overload, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer stood out as a stellar example of the DIPA style on the day I had it--poured from the tap. Full of layered West Coast hop complexity, it comes across as a focused and carefully-crafted vehicle for hop oil delivery. Although appealing, the smell only began to suggest the world of citrus and pine flavors that awaited in the flavor. As with the best beers, acidity plays a pivotal role that is enhancing, rather than distracting. This beer tasted and felt so fresh that it could have been brewed yesterday, leaving an impression of liveliness and energetic character that makes me look forward to our next encounter. I knew Grand Teton was good: Sweetgrass is a delicious--if inconsistent--hoppy pale ale; Pursuit of Hoppiness is a smooth and appealing imperial red; Trout Hop and Sheep Eater remain my favorites of each of their respective styles. Despite my favorable history with the brewery and its other products, I was caught completely off-guard by this brilliant DIPA that, I now realize, is tragically under-valued even with its B+ rating here. This is in top-tier DIPA territory, without a doubt.

Appearance: Pours a dark honey color with a nice 3/4 inch tan head that lingers for a minute or two but stays long enough to provide excellent lacing.

Smell: Lots of hops, hops, and a few more hops. Lots of floral and citrus nots go along with these hops. A very true hop smell.

Taste: Hop heaven, this is my new favorite tasting beer. The hops are sweet, juicy, and spicey. This is a great combo of hops and flavor.

Mouthfeel: Waxy and great!

Drinkability: The only downfall is that they only sell 4 packs of this stuff. I would prefer this over Hop Stoopid or Ruination for a hop head fix!

First and foremost, this is one of my favorite DIPA's. Found it about a year ago and it has been a staple in my fridge since. I might be a little biased.

A - A very hazy burnt orange with a half inch of nice off white head. Nice lacing throughout beer.

S - Very sour, mildly citrus...grapefruity. Nice sweet malts as well.

T - Citrus/orange/grapefruit are wildly apparent. There are a ton of hops that have a very fruity appeal to them. The beer is very sweet at first but finishes with an overwhelming bitterness.

M - Bitterness sticks around for a while after the sip has been swallowed. Unlike a lot of in your face DIPA's this one does not coat your mouth with that weird film. This one is very clean and fresh. One of the reasons I like it so much.

D - Very easily drinkable. Then again, I am a DIPA nut. I think this beer is and can be very sessionable if you are a fan of this style.

Poured from a bottle into a imperial tulip glass.

Nice golden copper hazy color, with a awesome aroma of citrus hops. Two finger white head.

At first this beer seems to be sweeter than most IPAs than you get that nice citrus aroma both at the nose and tongue. With both great taste and aroma this beer is a must for all to try.

375ml foil-capped bottle purchased from Berkeley Bowl West in Berkeley, CA. Shared with Rich some months later.

Pours a slightly hazed orange hue, with a messily bubbled, if not particularly thick head of white. Lace forms in tiny specks but no more. Body is extremely pleasantly thick, and holds the fine carbonation very well indeed. Overall, though, it looks very good.

Nose is awesome. Big fresh citrus hops like slightly underripe orange and mandarin. Big sweetness underneath mingled pleasantly with it providing a stretchy toffee character that plays off the citrus fruit wonderfully. This bottle is some months old, I know, and the fact that it still stands up so damn well is a testament to just how good it must be fresh. Fantastic stuff.

Taste is also extremely good. The malt basis is strong, but neutral enough to just give the stage to the hops, which roar through with a pleasant intensity, touching everything as they work from front to back. Clean bitterness throughout, with a brightness that reminds me of Pliny. Slight green kiwifruit and leafy chewiness on the back gives a cleansing flavour, while the bitterness and hop oils linger for some time. It's really excellent stuff.

Feel is clean but smooth, with a thickness that supports everything, and a lightness which lets the flavours do their work.

Overall, this is blissfully drinkable, amazingly balanced and just damn *good*. The flavours are really beautifully put together to produce a beer of great substance and character while maintaining a pleasant approachability. Fantastic stuff.

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

Appearance - This poured a rich, darkish orange in color with an amazing head that was big, white, and frothy and left a filmy retention on the inside of my glass.

Smell - This is a deep, rich, heavily hop-infused bouquet. The resin is very strong and shows lots of depth. The malts too are very sweet and full of caramel. The character of the nose isn't so much unique as it is the intensity of the aroma.

Taste - This is a huge, monstrous beer. When I saw that the ABV barely qualified this as a DIPA I was expecting a wimp but this is a true heavy hitter.

The malts are deep and rich and full of caramel goodness but none of that cheap artificial sugary flavor that you find in so many efforts at the style. The piney hop resin is in full force as well and there's a tinge of tangerine to keep things diversified.

Mouthfeel - This is close to full-bodied with some very mild carbonation and a terrific smoothness in between the cheeks.

Drinkability - I was pleasantly surprised at this offering from Grant Teton. They are hit or miss for me but this was a home run.

Poured a nice honey gold color with an awesome head & lace.

Grapefruit seems the dominate nose with some piney reson for good measure. Hints at a smooth caramel maltiness is subdued, but in a good way. It seems all about the hops, cool.

Clean bitterness with creamy caramel malt that gives way i a big way to grapefruit creamcycle(? spelling lol) mango and ather tropical fruit.

Nice and creamy dry mouthfeel.

Good brew nice price, served at about 60 degrees and really enjoyed.

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.

A: pours a cloudy red golden color with very little head, but it does leave behind a nice lace down the glass

S: strong hops at first, citrusy and piney, a little floral touch as well. Smells and looks sweet, fruity notes on the nose

T: Smooth for a DIPA, sweet/floral hop notes up front, followed by a middle full of fruity sweet, then a very slight alcohol touch just before the hops shine through full of citrus and pine.

M: thick and low to moderate carbonation

O: a great beer, thicker than most DIPAs, but an awesome example nonetheless.

Pours a cloudy, golden/copper color. One and one quarter inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops, sweet malt, toffee, and earthy malt. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol up front, then strong hops, sweet malt comes through next, and slight citrus. Overall, a pretty darn good beer with strong alcohol flavors that blend nicely with the hops and malt.

Poured into a SA perfect pint, it glows a hazy amber. The head is modest, mostly large bubbles that cling to the edges but don't dissipate until the beer is a memory. Small filmy lace spots speckle my glass when all is commenced.

Loads of bubblegum and citrus fill the nostrils, primarily sweet and bitter pink grapefruit. Leafy garden greens and The malt base is substantial and offers bold caramel, toffee and sweet flavors.

Zesty orange and tangerine flavors are up front accompanied by a pine and grapefruit bitterness that escalates and eventually dominates the finish. It is all checked by a moderate amount of sweet and toasty malt cues. They certainly did not neglect the grains needed to back 90+ IBU's, therefor balance and flavor are right on.

The viscosity of this one is excellent, it just fills the dark corners of the mouth with a resiny goodness. The carbonation is sharp initially and mellows out with just a bit of a tickle and all finishes dry and earthy.

I wouldn't expect anything else from GT brewing. They have always delivered a robust west coast hop profile and balanced it wonderfully with more than a minimal malt backing. This beer is 5 months after the brewed on date and still delivers.

From bottle (3-5-15) to snifter. One finger off white medium-dense head, fades slowly into thin island of film. Spotty lacing. Translucent burnt orange, with a good bit of bubbles inside. Mild aromas of grass, sweet oranges, bright hops, hint of pineapple, lighter on malty behavior, though maltiness warms up well. Tastes just like aroma, but much more bright, a lot of focus on sweet oranges and peaches/apricots with very strong bitterness riding passenger seat. Feels medium-thick in body, kind of dry on finish, and a bit boozy, considering the abv. Lighter malt character lends to this, though it retains some slick, slightly syrupy qualities. Higher carbonation. Pretty good, true to the style, maybe a bit light in malt. I would probably buy this again.

Sampled from a firkin (cask) at the Happy Gnome Firkin Festival in St. Paul, March 2010.

Sampled from a 4 oz. sampling "snit" glass, full amber colour, white frothy head, looked lovely to me and as if it needed to be drunk immediately.

Big'n hoppy, floral grapefruit, very "fresh" aroma directly from the firkin.

Delicious...big hops, not too sweet, rich malty backbone, long bitter finish....what's not to like?

Full somewhat heavy mouth feel, not syrupy but had some weight on the tongue.

One of the top 4-5 beers enjoyed at the Firkin Festival out of about 60 brewers there. An excellent double IPA - especially directly out of a fresh firkin cask. Cheers!

06/18/09- Purcahsed at Mollie Stones in San Mateo, CA.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with no freshness info. It is, however, a 2009 release. Poured into a random pint glass.

Appearance- Lightly clouded rust orange pour. About a full inch head on the pour which settles at a light rim. Some light lines and spots of lace remain.

Smell- Pine, grapefruit and sweet orange hops with a lightly toasted caramel malt backing.

Taste- Super balanced DIPA. Maybe just a touch more caramel malt. Orange flavor sweet juicy hops play nicely with the malt. Nice and sugary, but not too sweet.

Mouthfeel- Spot on carbonation level...a bit lower than medium with a nice bitter grapefruit pith flavor.

Drinkability- I'll be getting more of these in the future. Quite a nice DIPA.

Picked this up at Marty's in Newton where I also got a Leffe Brune now in bottles a great beer which I will review soon.
to save you a search here's its link http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/470/1862

Comes in a 4 Pack didn't see it in Bommahs (Mass.MA Accent) but didn't really look. In case you don't know I'd say 5% of BA users a Bomber is a 22-24oz or so Double size beer usually made for non mass produced specialty beers like the Harpoon 100bbl (barrel) series and others like Brooklyn's Local.1 and Local.2 beers which are excellent.

Look L: Bright Golden Hue mid cloudy 40% opacity just a guess no detailed measuring was performed at 3am

Smell (nose)S: Floral hop color Lemon or citrus feel. only first taste I hope I can edit this later this is my virginal review so bear (beer) with me. :)

Taste T: Slow appearance of hop flavour then gradually increases to mid perfect hop happyness hoppYness instead of Iness. Wonderbread style light yeast feel.
Post: Aftertase has a nice slght hop linger to it not over or under pimped

Mouthfeel M: very light body but has a syrupy fluid(liquid) behavior as it moves around the mouth talking to your taste buds and budettes.

Overall O: Great beer definately on my will have in future not an extremely hoppy IPD but it's pretty good and definately hit the spot.

HOPHEAD79 it's my cap sensitive user name but I like being all caps :)

Have a good 1 everybody.
post rules minimum NicE almost never see that one I thought I'd be overtyping my review being character blocked. Hopefully I don't get booed for any puns I may have let loose.

Thanks goes out to Bitterbill for this brew.

12oz. Bottle
Gold Foil

Pours a very nice cloudy golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, leaves some very nice thick/creamy sticky lacing and small islands. The nose is hoppy, with some nice malt notes, citrus, and some pine notes. The taste is sweet on the lips, malty, very nice hop notes, citrus, and slight pine notes. Medium body. Very drinkable, this one surprised the shit out of me, very tasty. Thanks Bill.

A large bomber, with bold foil, picked up at Green's in Columbia, SC. Label states bottle date of 2/24/12.

A - A cloudy orange/amber, with lots of head and sticky lace. Lots of sediment, cloudy, zero clarity. Love it! I will take a cloudy brew over a clear one anyday.

S - Citrus hops and alcohol very present. Pineapple.

T - Sweet up front, major hops! Citrus flavors, pineapple, pears. Very well balanced. Damn tasty

M - Full bodied, well carbonated. Smooth.

O - This one is 9 months old, and I think it has aged very well from a DIPA to a strong ale. Hops still kick. Very good. Will look for this one again.

GLASS: Unibroue Tulip
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees

This pours a fairly hazy, lightly golden, orange color. It has a two-finger head of clover-honey colored foam sitting on top. The retention is very good and the lacing is very sticky.

Big piney citrus notes come at me first. They are backed by strong hints of caramel malt sweetness. Light touches of orange blossom honey. Grapefruit, orange and pine notes are drizzled with golden brown sugar and light bits of caramel.

This is one of the better IIPA/DIPA's that I've ever had, as far as balance goes. The bitter and sweet notes coexist in perfect harmony, within this glass...and then, my mouth.
Good hops presence, brought forth by notes of grapefruit, pine, orange peel, and other citrus notes. They're side-by-side with a nice dose of sweet caramel malts. Nice touches of honey and vanilla are detected. A mild hint of yeast presence supports it all.

This has a nice full body. It has a mild-to-medium level of carbonation, which keeps it active and interesting, but doesn't overpower.

The 8.0%abv is fairly well-hidden, helping to make this a nicely drinkable beer. The level of balance here is a highlight, but hopheads will find it less than stellar, I'd think. Oh well, I think that Grand Teton has made a tasty, drinkable beer.

This is a murky golden pour that puts out a nice, rocky head. I only bought one bottle, wish I had bought the pack.
Quickly the aroma of citric hops and oils come forth. I can smell it two feet away.
Taste is loaded with hops, yet without a whole lot of dryness. Heavy on the citrus, orange peel and tangelo flavors without the acidity. Some sweetness comes into play and just when I think it will ruin the beer, it fades into a nice light malt presence.
Again, not a very dry feeling beer. Yet the alpha oils do come through. Slick. A quick burst of alcohol warms things up. Slight pine finish.
Overall this is a very nice beer. I knock it on bite, and the sweetness almost comes too big.

4 pack from the Davis Co-Op. Pours a cloudy orange brown with a 1/4 inch yellowish head and nice sticky lacing. Smells of strong grapefruits, alcohol and sweet, sweet malts. Flavor very nice, grapefruit and lemons on a good sweet malt base with strong but appropriate alcohol coming through. A double IPA that features the hop flavor in a high alcohol beer, rather than just going for extreme bitterness. Full bodied and not quite syrupy (though close). Drinks well, i enjoyed each of the 4 bottles entirely.

Damn, I missed being the first taster by one day, even though I bought this beer yesterday... anywhoooo

Pours a murky amber viscosity, just below syrupy into my 16oz snifter... there is a small head with little retention, but there is smooth, creamy carbonation... no worries... the smell is hop acids very bitter with pine, grapefruit, citrus and grass... very nice smells... the flavor follows the smell with sweet light color apricot, peach, and grapefruit compote... and bitterness lingers on the end... mouthfeel is viscous and full... I like this one... Grand Teton (while little known) is one of my favorite brewers... they make some stellar stuff... I just wish more peeps knew about them.

Hazed copper body with a small khaki head. Lacing is sporadic. The aroma is tempered compared to some of the big boys, but this does have a nice little complex hop aroma if you dig deep enough (sniff long enough that it). This beer doesn't have the big bitterness and huge malt/hop properties usually associated with DIPAs, but this is very sound flavorwise with hop attributed tropical fruit nuances galore. Mango and pineapple and tangerine to name a few. This is quite tasty. Nice caramel malt base. Think of grilled pineapple and you'll be getting the picture. The body is medium. The carbonation moderate. A nice refined DIPA for a change.

The beer is a foggy amber color and has a somewhat decent 2-3 finger white head when poured into a pint glass. The head lingers longer than most beers. The beer has a very strong hoppy smell and has hints of sweet citrus. The taste is hoppy but not too much and has a strong orangy citrus flavors to balance out the hopps. To a lesser extent there is the taste of toffee in the background of the beer. The beers carbonation was perfect (as seen in the head) which allows the aroma to fill the top of the glass.

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.
