From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume III, Issue II:

Massive and dense cream-colored head, completely hazy orange-amber color that is most likely from the amount of hops used and obviously not filtered. Big whiffs in the nose of mango, ruby red grapefruit and lime zest from the hops, then there is a bit more fruitiness from the alcohol and a hint of toasted biscuit from the malt. Smooth and bitty with a creamy, slick mouthfeel and a medium to full body. The hops pop with a slightly coarse bite, pleasant but rough around the edges. Big toasted cracker maltiness throughout lays down a solid foundation. Hops stay dominant for the most part with a heavy- handed flavor that keeps on dropping citrus rind, hemp seed oil and blond tobacco flavors. The alcohol comes through after several sips to let you know it's there; warmth and a ripe fruitiness hit middle to end. Finishes bittersweet with a thick layer of hop flavor that sticks to the taste buds.

There is no fine line separating IPAs and Double IPAs, so this ends up being a hefty American IPA, a lovely one at that. Old-school rough-and-tumble style with hop bitterness and flavor fighting it out, and the blatant unfiltered look. If "punk rock" was a beer, it would be HopArt IPA.
