This poured out as a very nice looking yellow color with a fluffy white head on top. The head retention is strong and the lacing is very good too. The smell is loaded with floral, fruity and citrus aromas. The smell is almost addictive. The taste of the beer is solid as well, lots of piney citrus and melon flavors with a great malt backbone as well. The mouthfeel of the beer is very drinkable, soft and refreshing. Overall it's excellent. Very happy to have tried this beer finally.

Tapped at 3pm on 3/2/2013 at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier. Served in a standard pint. Pours a light, golden-orange hue with a dense, half-inch, cream-colored head embedded with tiny pinpricks. Nose is fairly subdued with some light citrusy notes only really coming forth. Taste reveals citrus, buttermilk and an earthy/herbal quality. Finish expresses a slight biscuity character. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a creamy texture and a slightly oily quality. An easy drinking IPA, but not what I would consider a DIPA per se (perhaps it's the cask conditioning). I was lead to believe that Double Sunshine was a juicy DIPA loaded with fruit; however, I don't get this here. I'll have to see how the presentation in the bottle compares with the cask.

Logged from notes circa 7/22/2012
Appearance: Golden yellow straw, pale reflected sunlight haze with a small white head.
Aroma: Subdued grass, slight lingering citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple
Taste: Initial bitter pine followed by the citrus. I notice the presence of chinook and certainly citra hops in leading roles. Luscious and juicy with a finish like taking a bite from a ripe tangerine. The ABV is well hidden.
Mouthfeel: Balanced and well carbonated. However, it taste fragil, as if this beer could not stay cohesive in the long run.
