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.

Poured from bottle into a modified tulip glass.
A - Deep golden color, billowing white cap, stunning gentle lacing makes its way to the top.
S - Apricot, ripe peach, passion fruit. The tropical smells are blended so well. The nose is very complex.
Warm grains and some grilled white bread.
T - Fruits of the field, deep rich malty body, a slight bite of complex hops. The taste lingers as softer elements come forward.
Lemon reduction, white burgundy, some touches of hop oils. A little bit of Alcohol resonates.
F - A large body, gentle and relentless carbonation. A smooth coating of the palate no intention of letting go any time soon.
O - A big approach to a pilsner, the hop profile is dense and only one part of a very complex and very enjoyable beer.

Bottled beer served in a glass.

Appearance -
Pours a thick, white and fluffy head, that dissipates slowly to a thin 5mm layer. Leaves plenty of lacing. A hazy yellow/gold colour, no sediment but not clear. Moderate carbonation.

Smell -
Pineapple, rockmelon, peaches, passionfruit, honey, pine, floral, citrus, lemon, lime - a lot more fruit on the nose compared to some beers which are very much dominated by hops and citrus. Very strong aroma - could smell it before I even poured it from the bottle.

Taste -
First up a bit of honey, wheat, rockmelon, pineapple. After the first sip you get a good hit of hops and those passionfruit, peach, caramel and strong grapefruit flavours. Grapefruit peel after-taste.

Mouthfeel -
Very creamy, full bodied, and a very light carbonation tingle. Smooth and refreshing and a hint of stickiness.

Overall -
A very full flavoured and unique brew - full of rich fruity flavours. Very enjoyable, unique and refreshing. Hard to fault and well balanced.
