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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Golden slightly hazy beautiful white head nice lacing

S: Just an overwhelming amount of citrus and tropical scents in the nose this jumps out at you

T: Kiwi, melon, grapefruit, berries just every tropical fruit you can imagine soothing your taste buds before fading to a biscuity refreshing malt character and very little bitterness.

M: Medium bodied and fairly dry

O: World class. Had this just before Heady and preferred this. Just an incredible beer. Preferred by me over Pliny as well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

a - Bomber to snifter, 2 finger white head left some soapy lacing, color is orange/yellowish , a bit cloudy

s - citrus and tropical fruits combine with some resinous hop notes to make a wonderful aroma

t - the taste starts off with similar flavors as were present in the aroma, a bit of malty sweetness comes through but is balanced out with a hoppy bite that sends you off with a lingering bitter finish

m - great carbonation and a medium to strong body, dry finish

o - A world class beer no doubt Many thanks to @dwduncan2 for hooking me up with this! I am definitely glad I got to try this and would recommend seeking it out to try at least once. However, don't know if I personally would go through much trouble to acquire again, whereas I will definitely be seeking out Heady Topper many more times!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Hazy golden appearance

Smell - Bright, clean citrus nose

Taste - Nice citrusy hop forward taste with a great malt backbone

Mouthfeel - Clean and concise presence in the mouth

Overall - This is a beer I've only ever seen reviews and heard about. I was finally able to obtain these from the Warren Store on the Thursday release day. I was very excited to try this and was not under-whelmed by this beer. It pours a very nice hazy golden color with a nice citrus aroma. The balance and malty support of this beer in the mouth makes it fantastic.

Bottle received in trade. Pours a slight murky golden color. Nose is a big herbal, resiny, and fruity smell. Taste is similar with the slightly bitter herbal and resiny taste but with sweet fruit notes. Overall one of the best IIPA's I've ever had. Can't find a fault with it honestly
