4/5  rDev +27.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a La Chouffe Tulip

A - crystal clear dark orange/amber, one finger white head and a tiny bit of lacing

S - Lots of sweet flowers, nice sweet malt, gentle bitter hop, a little bit of alcohol, earth, grass and lots of nice citrus

T - Tons of floral notes, a bit of citrus, really mellow but nice bitterness, great crisp sweetness, grass, a bit of wood, earth and very balanced malt

M - Medium minus body, medium complexity, well balanced, low acidity and medium plus finish

D - One of the easiest drinking beers I have had in a long while. Tastes great, goes down like water and gives you a bit of a buzz

Final thought - $7 a sixer and 6.9% abv. If you haven't had this one. Try it!

I am one who does not enjoy citrus style IPA's and this one from Double Take fits citrus throughout. A nice head and color, for me thats about it for enjoyment of this IPA. A sweet, citrus flavor is over-powering and at 6.9 alcohol, I was very surprised by the over bearing citrus content of this IPA.

Double Take IPA is not a heavy IPA, rather I bet for many, this would be a good IPA for a hot summer day/evening. For myself, I'll move on to something else.

Cheers!

This review done so by glass and bottle.

3.25/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

No bottling date,

Into a pint glass:

A: golden orange yet fairly clean body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a fair amount of speckled lacing

S: a fair amount of hops up front and a decent amount of hops

T: balanced but mostly staying true to an AIPA style, a somewhat malty yet bitter aftertaste, sticky sweet finish

M: light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation seems subdued for its style but really just mediocre for the most part

O: not a bad AIPA, but nothing spectacular and nothing to quickly come back to

3.34/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

I picked up a sixer of this up at Dominick's for $6.99 on a whim, so I didn't have huge expectations since the price was right.

A - Looks and pours like a perfect example of an IPA. Golden color with a 2 finger off white head and some nice lacing.

S - The smell was well.. Pretty absent. A little bit of hop bitterness on the nose. It doesn't smell bad, but there isn't much.

T - Its pretty easy to drink and hides the almost 7% abv pretty well. That being said, if you are looking for a nice hop punch... It really isn't there. Finishes nicely though and it does the job.

M - Again, typical mouthfeel for an IPA. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation level.

O - If I was having a family party or something I would definitely throw a couple 6 packs of this in the cooler since its about the same price as your standard American adjunct six pack.

2.84/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Color is an amber copper with a frothy one and a half finger head that hangs for a while and leaves some nice lacing behind.

The smell is not the IPA smell I had hope for. Only light hoppy aromas to speak of.

Taste isn't what I hoped for either. Drinkable but not deserving of alot of explanation here.
Price is right for what you get though.

The feel I got from this brew was not unpleasant but doesn't make want to go out and get more either. Dry is the main thing that comes to mind.

Overall it has a picture of a pretty girl on label and is priced ok for a party but not anything special.

2.93/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A - hazy orange in color. thick frothy white head, serious lacing.

S - slight hops smell - some pine and grapefruit come through. can't get a lot out of the smell.

T - good malty backbone is actually what i notice first. some grapefruit hops come through here as well. slightly metallic at the end

M - a little watery and undercarbed. unpleasant to drink in my opinion.

Overall - pretty average beer, nothing special here. for all of the good IPAs out there, don't bother with this one.

2.85/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a standard pressure-cap 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live. No best-by date.

A- Finger-thick white head. Medium retention. Light amber color with high clarity. Sticky lacing.

S- Very fruity floral hops. Tropical fruits. Quite pleasant actually, but not a very profile IPA.

T- Very bitter, pine and alpha hop oil. Some of the fruitiness exists, but not much. One of those too hop-forward IPAs that plague the U.S.

M- Thick and almost chunky. Dry finish.

O- About medium. Not good, not bad. Drinkable without being super enjoyable.

The IPA by Double Take is an interesting beer...not so much that it is awesome....but more by how easy drinking it is. The beer poured a clear yellow with 1/2 finger thick white head that is leaving a lace. The smell is more earthy type hops...no citrus or pine present....at least that I can pick up. The taste is a very mellow IPA that has a good compbination of bittering hops and sweeter malt. The mouthfeel is a medium body with smooth carbaontation. Overall I like this a a good session IPA...some may find it a bit sweet...this is definitely an East Coast IPA.
