Bottle dated 11/2014; consumed a few days ago.
Second time I've given Seeing Double a try, and the second time I was under impressed.
Reminds me of an English IPA, which are generally too malty for me.

On tap.

A - Clear light amber with a generous and thick foamy off-white head; corresponding lacing.
S - Appealing, for sure, but less hoppy than expected.
T - too sweet and short on hops, if judged by style. Ignoring that, this is a bold, well balanced APA with well-hidden ABV, although the alcohol adds complexity.
M - near medium body with medium+ carbonation. The higher ABV adds some warmth
O - this surprising "double IPA" is balanced and easy drinking.

I was really surprised by this. It's very evenly balanced which is something that I usually do not care for but this has a back end sweetness (very slight) that really makes everything come together nicely. I could crush these even at 9.5%

By the standards of a DIPA, this is a smooth, mellow, easy-drinking and delicious beer. If I dare say it, it's an English DIPA.
