3.85/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: I was getting a little excite as I poured this. First of all I have read that the head on this is not aggressive. Not in my case. I started off with a 3 inch head, however that did die down to one inches within 45 seconds or so. Second, I am impressed by the mid-mahogany body. Deep amber... yada yada... "other ways in which you could say 'mid-mahogany.'" Lacing is moderate to high.

Aroma: The malt and hops are playing off each other greatly already. I am looking forward to tasting this. There is a lot of orange citrus, but it is so ballanced, that I am second guessing whether it comes from the hops or the malt. So without making <a href="http://www.whitelabs.com/">Chris White</a> too upset here, the aroma is coming from the balance between the malt forwardness and hop forwardness here.... but I guess that is the point here, so well done. OK... caramel, subtle grapefruit, orange peel, and lemongrass.

Taste: A lot of bitterness, as to be expected (this style upsets me sometimes, yet I still love it). There is a lot of fresh cut lawn/gassiness to the taste here, and it of course dominates. It seems like the whole taste begins and ends with some level of that grassiness. It is bitter up front, and then lingers into a mild tone later on, but that is pretty much all I am getting here. A little boozie at the end, but this took a while to stand out.

Mouthfeel: Remarkebly light, and easy on the tongue (aside from the bitterness, but that is what you signed up for when you tried this beer).

Drinkability: I don't think that Double IPAs are meant to be drinkable, that said, I find this a pleasant drink, and with the right meal, I would love this on a summer day.... (why all the summer days? I don't know, I'm from San Diego, hence it is practically all I know). Overal I would give this a good "drinkability" rating which is <em>my</em> main concern with beer... that is the point right? To drink it?
