Bottle #3! Thanks ATLBeerdog. A quickie, 'cause we have lots to drink.
A gold hazed DIPA with a short head, lace and reeking of delicious hops. Seriously one of the better noses on a DIPA I've smelt lately, reminds me of Pliny the Younger (yes, really) all tropical and mango / pineapple and dank, green and sweet and fun. Alas, the flavor is a bit pedestrian after all that, the malt not really standing up to the hop rush. A bit thin and the finish is short and doesn't stand out. Still... worthy, and should be better fresh.
Double Sunshine isn't outstanding, but it is a very good smelling DIPA with a lot to like about it.

I thought this beer would be more tropical. I think Lawson's has underwhelmed me on all the expectations I had for their beers.
A- Foggy non-transparent golden. Thick head with no retention.
S- Very mild tropical fruit, with more malty smell than anything.
T- Very sessionable, which is not a good thing when talking about a beer of such magnitude (though Pseudo Sue is sessionable too, but crushes this). Mild tropical fruits (mango, papaya, pineapple).
M- Medium to high grade on this. Thicker than most. Lots of carb follows.
O- I had expectations that this would be the best ever pale that I have had. It was way short of that. I could go shelf local and be just as satisfied. I will take one more look at this, as I just crushed a Godiva Dark Chocolate Bar that my have f*cked with my palate. I will seek out another bottle to look back on
