Pours a slightly hazed glowing orange copper with a slightly off white head, fine even layered speckled coat of lacing left on the sides of my nonic pint glass.

Aroma has pungent dank citrus, mango and papaya flesh very fruit driven big juicy fresh hop profile. Sugar coated hops with a depth of malt and breadiness. The orange peel and candy notes really keep reoccurring with every sniff.

Flavor explodes with expansive hop bitterness/flavor and malt balance. Citrus peel pith, crushed aspirin, dank mary jane, notes of tropical fruit papaya flesh a hint of mango big resinous hop oils coat the palate but are sugar coated making it balanced...well hidden booze I couldn't tell you this was 8.5% abv.

Mouthfeel, is medium to full bodied assertive bitterness dries out the palate but luscious malts keep things balanced...even natural carbonation with slick hop oils lubricating the palate quite well.

Overall, I've waited a year to try this...I can't imagine how this tasted closer to 9/18/14 but Pittsburgh just got a very limited amount for the first time...what sucks was the mark up was 8 bucks a bottle. However, it didn't deter me I had to have the Double Dose I'm a big fan of the Brewmaster Mike's series of hoppy offerings...this is exponentially better with Lawson on board Clementine the VW mini-bus portrayed on the label.
