I'm giving this a 1 out of 5 b/c this beer is not a IPA by any stretch of the word, let alone a double IPA as its states on the label. Wouldn't classify as an English IPA or an American IPA. If it was listed as a Red Ale it would be a 3.5/5.

A: Red/Brown

S: Burt caramel, toffee, sour cherries and some citrus fruit

T: Caramel Malt bomb with a hint of bitter orange peel

M: Medium bodied
