Had this as part of a four-beer sampler over at Duckworth's. Kicked things off with Foothills' Hoppyum IPA, then stepped my game up by over three percent alcohol content with this Double.

It's a good Double, for sure; but I am a little partial to standard IPAs. I'll try to not let my bias affect this review too much.

Pretty appearance. Didn't look to be any more menacing than the Hoppyum, or the Dale's Pale Ale that was also part of the four-pack. Oh, but my parents taught me well: Never judge a book by its cover. And ladies and gentlemen, the same must be said for beers: Never judge a brew by its shade.

As soon as I took a whiff of this baby, I knew I was in a different league. Huge floral, hoppy tones that made the back of my throat tingle with anticipation. It smelled SWEET. The maltiness was poking its head through. I could tell through my nostrils that this beer packed a punch.

It tasted...good. I can't say great, because it was really just too malty and sweet for me. Again, that's probably my bias. Very thick and syrupy in my mouth.

Honestly, the 4.5 ounce portion I got of this beer was enough for me. I'd certainly enjoy a full pint of the stuff; I'd just be spinning after a couple of them. But, this beer is very good for what it is. Perhaps as I get a little more hardcore in my beer consumption, I'll rate this beer considerably higher.

3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.

Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.

Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.

Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.
