look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber with a 5/2013 bottle date(cant tell if 02 or 20th).

A: Beautiful golden color, nice, creamy appearing, off white head.

S: Nice citrusy/piney hop aroma, faint hint of malty goodness. Do I detect some sweetness?

T: VERY balanced. Nice hop bite right off the bat, then the malt rushes in; well done FW.

MF: Bit thin IMO. It dies on the palate the minute you finish the drink.

O: I like it but I want to like it more. This may be me but, IMO, a Double IPA should be very hoppy and very malty. This is hoppy on the nose but both the hops and the malt die way too quickly. It's well put together, and I'd buy and drink again, but it's not quite up to snuff.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grapefruits, hops, strong and flavorful. Taste is lots of citrus, grapefruit in paticular, some bitter hops, tropical fruits, tasty and alcohol is well hidden. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worth seeking out.
