Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This double IPA is hazy orange, dense bubbly white head, good lacing. Aroma - big tropical fruits, sweet fruity malts, grapefruit pith, lots of pithy resinous fruits, super aroma. Taste as the aroma, great background of sweet fruits, mango, tropical nots, juicy citrus, resinous hops, good bitter sweet balance, complex flavour, so drinkable for the abv, cracking stuff.

Wow, this was a shock. Double IPA can sometimes be a bit to much to enjoy imo but this goes down great and really is one of the best IPAs I have had in a long time. Well done guys!

500ml bottle from McCambridges of Galway, Galway (€7.15):
Excellent stuff, easily the best Irish beer I've tried & well ahead of the next closest, the same brewery's Full sail IPA. This one opens with lots of tropical fruits, nice pine bitterness & some sweet malts that help balance things. Full of flavour from the start with good fruits early on & alcohol content well hidden. The beer was an easy one to drink & well worth the fairly high price I paid for the bottle; definitely worth hunting for if you find yourself in Ireland at any point.

Pours a dark orange/catamel colour. Very hoppy nose, sweet malts, robust aromas, and definitely smells like a big beer. Tastes sweet, caramel malts, quite hoppy, but well balanced with the malts. Citrus nitesnotes, orange, passionfruit, heavier-bodied.
