On-tap as the guest beer @ Alpine. Labeled as a 3Floyds/Boneyard collab?
A pretty beer, was expecting a bit more darkness due to the "double" moniker. Lots of roast in the aroma, swirled with the expected hoppiness.
Tasted more roast than chocolate to me. On the sweeter side, as far as CDA's go.
Mouthfeel was slightly thin, but that's all I can knock this beer down for. For hoppiness, it didn't stand up to the other Alpine beers in the flight (Duet, Nelson, Pure Hoppiness). Delicious distraction though.

Growler shared with my Dad last night.
Pours a dark brown (not as dark as I expected though) with a large off white head. Was happy to see that this beer was still well carbonated.
Aromas are wonderful. Earthy, pine, lots of resin, grassy, with some really ripe and sugary citrus notes.
Taste follows the nose very nicely. Sweet cocoa, sticky resin, hard candy sweetness, light nutty undertones, and a pine like bitterness on the finish. Very nicely balanced for the style, though the hoppiness is certainly on the forefront.
Lighter and very smooth mouthfeel. It kind of makes it easy to drink and also easy to forget that this beer is 10% ABV.
Overall, an outstanding example of the style. One of the best CDAs I have ever had.

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Dark brown. Murky. Khaki head. Nice collar and a wispy surface.
Smell - Big grapefruit and piney hop aroma. Some roasty malts, but it's all about the hops.
Taste - Still a huge hop flavor. Grapefruit hops. Roasted malt throughout. Never quite takes over, but just a bit of sweetness. Bitter finish.
Mouthfeel - Kinda light. Surprising for a 10% beer. I expected and wanted a little more body. The growler maintained the carbonation very well.
Overall - Not sure if it's because I've been drinking a lot of mediocre beer, but this is really nice.

Reddish brown, hazy and dark.
Smells super hoppy, but drinks very creamy. Truly the most buttery Pale Ale I've ever had... Finish is great too, leaves you with a sense the favors and characteristics if the region.
An outstanding beer for the habitual IPA drinker to expose the other side of the pale ale spectrum.
