12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Well, this is... interesting. A big chunk of... something... just poured into my beverage and broke apart into sediment, which seems to be settling at the bottom of my glass. Poured a deep orange with about a finger-width of a white foam that's leaving a little lacing along the side. Lots and lots of bubbles in this one.
Smell: Lots of pine-sol in this one. A small bit of grapefruitish notes, too.
Taste: After watching that chunk of whatever come out of the bottle and into my glass, I'm gonna let the foam subside first. I'd like to see if there's anything still floating on top, you know? **5 minutes later** Yeah, this is nice. Pine and citrusy. Some malt notes. Don't taste the alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Not the heaviest double IPA I've ever had. A little creamy and bitter on the finish, but not a bad thing necessarily.
Overall: Pretty good. Still a little puzzled about the big chunk o' stuff that poured out. I reserve the right to revise this if I feel ill from any particles later.

Pours a rich, perfect amber, into a traditional pint glass. Head quickly dissipates, and there is little lacing. Usual IPA scents of pine, citrus, and a hint of honey, breadiness, and certainly detectable booziness. Taste is similarly citrusy, with a more heavy breadiness component that lends an overt sweetness to the citrus. Despite a heavier boozy note on the tongue, it is much less bitter than expected. This contributes to a heavy but balanced and not overpowering mouthfeel. Recommended, for a higher ABV, yet very drinkable, double IPA.
