Starr Hill Double Platinum is very citric, very aggressive, yet refreshing and crisp.
It poured a light copper, almost apricot color, with a very short white head that dissipated too soon. A wall of lace rings were left on the glass. A very strong citric/grapefruit aroma accompanied the pour and that translated to the flavor which had a strong oily raw hop aftertaste. The feel was very bitter with a pleasant long-lasting sting, yet it was crisp and oddly refreshing.
With the strong citric flavor and crisp bitter feel, Double Platinum is perfect at the end of a long hot day. To me, this is the perfect summer beer. If it's available all year, it will be my go-to beer.

Pours deep and dark amber. Modest but durable head.
Aroma: Interesting aroma is hoppy, as expected, but has an unusual character that is floral and herbal but otherwise rather hard to describe.
Flavor is more earthy, with mild to moderate bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation.
