Thanks to mar for sharing this growler.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a ton of dank hop notes, as well as some piney and resiny hops. This smells like a hop bomb. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of dank hop notes, but I also get some grassy hops as well as some biscuit malt and somewhat surprisingly, some very refreshing orange citrus hop notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice beer that I could drink several of.

The beer style captivates me, the artwork on the label has me sold, but the name Double Fist...c'mon. Okay I'm over it let's talk about the beer, excellent DIPA that's not dumb and boozy. That makes me happy, it looks delicious, deep amber ruby highlighted body with a light off white cream colored head, thick bubbled at first starts streaming fine effervescence. Dip the nares into your chalice, we have pine citrus and floral players from the hop industry dig further and I get pure hop bliss it's that combination of different hops that just serenade the senses and have converted most of us to a conglomerate of beer nuts who call ourselves hopheads. The revolution or change that this beer influences is backing the hops with minimal sweetness finishes almost bone dry with ample hop bitterness and flavor without tripping into barleywine territory. The nose let's you know that there's candy coated hops interwoven throughout this beer, but that first mouth puckering bitterness balanced by subtle sweet caramelized sugars, tropical fruits, citrus, and earthy pine has me begging for another sip. Flavor doesn't let me down in fact for some odd reason it's the mouthfeel the slick oily hops I come to know and love a bit resinous with lingering waves of bitter citrus peel, you might as well brush with a combination of hop pellets and soda water. Okay not that bad but it's one dimension of a really nice beer that could have gone better, carbonation satisfies not overdone just right for this papa bear, however it's the slick oily resinous mouthfeel that clings to your teeth and doesn't let go...oh wait that's what hopheads really enjoy. Okay overall a great DIPA that's not in the ridiculous 10 to 12 percent zone keeps it real and hoppy with an 8% abv, that is just about approachable if not mouth watering for a hophead like myself.

Pours a beautiful rich caramel color. Thin head that goes away pretty quickly. There is an off smell to my beer, but that is quickly erased by the taste. Not much citrus smell, but a great balance in the flavor. Started off a little weak for me, but after a few sips the citrus and malts really opened up the beer. Quite enjoyable in the end.

Enjoyed this on tap at Revolution Brewery in Chicago, IL in a 5oz sample glass.

A - Golden, light patchy lacing

S - mellow citrus, carmel, lemon, hint of grapefruit

T - Hoppy citrus and carmel. 7/10 bitterness. get a bit of the booze on the finish.

M - Thick but not frothy, med/full body

O - Descent. Loads of hops and dry citrus. Wish is was a bit sweeter, the booze hidden a bit more and more frothy. love the hops tho.

Has a neat fresh rolled copper sheen to the pour. Off-white dense head.

Subtle nuances of flora and fruit medley. Hoppy and lite pine tar. Nothing really screaming out-I'm here!

Deep rustic dry hop and pine resins. Just enough malt sweetness to support as such. Leans more bitter than sweet.

Creamy, smooth, clean and cuuurushable!

Great hop lineup of Centennial, Chinook, Cascade and Amarillo. Getting nice little whack off of one bottle. When can we expect this in 4/6 pack can/bottle format? Really!! This is one freak'in great concoction!
