I poured this into a Belgian ale glass because I can really appreciate the aroma.

A - a mildly cloudy, copper color with medium head (about a half inch thick).

S - big grapefruit aroma with a clove/pine earthiness.

T - The "double" factor is definitely evident in this one (i.e. don't chug). The warmth of alcohol is mellowed by sweetness and quickly followed by bitter pine. Minimal aftertaste.

M - medium body.

Overall - This is a great example of the style. I haven't found anyone who doesn't appreciate this Double. Thanks Founders!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – Pours a clear orange amber color with a very nice head and light spotted lacing.

Smell – Smell is great! One of the better IPA nose I’ve experienced thus far. A sweet citrus – lemon/grapefruit hops smell with no bitterness. Some malt is there too. Very good!

Taste – Malt, grapefruit, a touch of pine, with a hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel – Crisp, dry, medium carbonation. The 9.4%abv is well hidden. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability – Not overly hoppy. Smells great, tastes real good. My only small complaint is a lingering bitter aftertaste.
