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.


This review done so by glass and bottle.

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.

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.

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.

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.
