Big herbal, spicy, earthy noble hop nose over light grains. Pours slightly hazy gold under a 3" off-white, persistent pillowy foam cap. Noble hop spice and earthiness are more noticeable in the head then in the body while the rich Moravian malts shine more brightly in the body but the two blend in the mouth giving the beer an enjoyable parfait quality. The beer has big malt and hops but everything is perfectly balanced. Medium body and very fine, soft carbonation.

11.1 oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap. Was told by an employee that the store received this bottle in Oct of 2013. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with two fingers of head. Fluffy and incredible lacing, downright perfect

Smell: Faint grassiness and floral hops

Taste: Complex hop profile with a lot of floral and spicy characteristics

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp in the finish, lingering bitterness

Overall: Wow, this is a year old, and still has a lot of the hop character. The nose has really dulled out but the flavor is still strong. Im impressed it held up this well.

A hazy light gold with a 1" head of foam that shrinks reluctantly. Lacing is very good.

That's a very spicy hop nose I smell. One of the if not the strongest hop smells I've ever encountered in a Pils, double or otherwise.

The taste is of that strong hoppy goodness. Very spicy, very herbal. There's a biscuit like malt in the background that, to be honest, does very little to balance this beer. Oh well, I do get a significant amount of sweetness the more I sip but the balance I mentioned, I think, is not needed.

Medium bodied, same for the carbonation. Nice.

A very pleasant surprise as I usually don not favour Double Pils brews, $8.88 for the 11.1 ounce fancy assed bottles is a bit much though.
