On draft at Barley's Taproom in Asheville, NC. Served in a goblet. 

Pours deep amber with half finger pale white head. Very little lacing. 

Fairly subtle nose. Citrisy hops with some sweet bread too. 

Big bitter hops of all kinds- citris, piney & floral. There's enough malt to keep them under control. 

Nice full thick, near syrupy. Leaves a pleasant bitter hoppy coating after each sip. Mildly carbonated. 

A well done double IPA. Great body with a quite nice hop complexity. I'll definately have this again. 

Serving type: on-tap

I payed a visit to the brewery thinking that it was the tapping of Sexual Chocolate. I received some bad info, and was a couple weeks off. I noticed the Seeing Double on the board and figured it was worth trying. The color was a dark burnt orange, very thin head disapearing fairly quickly. The aroma, OH THE AROMA. Pungent with mango or papaya very floral.
The ABV was very present in the smell, however not in the taste. Very rich, very complex. I enjoyed every sip from the first. The addition of malts really calms the massive amount of hops. Genius. Best DIPA I've had to date, hands down. Prost!

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, NC for $5. Tapped from an unknown tap handle (sitting @ a table) into a 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Lightest mango, malty and hoppy aroma hits the nose first. Light all around and VERY tough to find any attributes out.

Appearance- Received with a 1 Finger head that dies quickly. Has a dark orange body and leaves good lacing behind.

Flavor- A mango hop flavor starts this guy off. A bit of citrus also hits the palate and a medium-full bitterness level is present. Nothing overpowering though!

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and beautiful! Tastes continue on the palate with full flavor and fruit.

Overall Impression- This was one of my favorite IPA's I've had in a LONG while but not a 2X IPA! Not enough strength and bitterness to be this style. Still would recommend enjoying this if you have a chance or if in the East. The only way you would be "seeing double" is if you would drink more than one... Didn't even notice the ABV's.
