Appearance is a clear copper-goldish, light carbonation (a tad lighter than typical for the style), served with little to no head.
Not much head retention, near to no lacing.
Flavor is certainly not bad, but I did not rate high seeing as they market this as a "double IPA" and therefore I expect much; this came in at a normal IPA range for IBU's and gravity, at least taste and mouthfeel wise.
Aroma is certainly this guy's thing; much dry hopping for great complexity and inviting sniffs.
Not so drinkable, this is one that wares on you half way through and you are looking towards the next beer in a more favorable genre; could definitely use a better balance of malt.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from bottle into rocks type glass thing in my hotel room.
Nice thick-ish head sits atop for a while and laces nicely. Clear, just shy of amber coloration. Aroma leans to the tropical side, but some resinous tones are there as well. Taste starts off really malty, but bitterness isn't far behind. This is a pretty bitter beer that needs the strong malt backbone to bring it through. Mouthfeel consists of good but not too much carbonation with a thick, chewy, looong finish. Satisfying and even though you know with the assertive malt that it's going to be high gravity and even with the aggressive hopping, it comes across smooth and drinkable.
