While it is a double IPA, the hops presence is not "double", more like your typical IPA. My bottle must be pretty fresh since I got it from a company rep just a few miles from the brewery.
High in ABV at 9.7%, just what I need today.
Clarity is great.
Flavor is crisp, citrusy from the hops. Very drinkable.
I like it, would drink again.

I like the level of "hopiness" here, it's not very high, just like a typical ipa, and flavors are nice. Color is almost like copper, interesting but I don't really care about that. Clarity is very good, not like my home-brew. Overall it's a great beer when you want that Double IPA kick. Lots of ABV value I suppose, well, not really when a bottle of Gin is $20 at 50% abv, but that's not an IPA either.
Yes, I reviewed this After drinking a bottle so I may be bias.
