Pours a brilliant, dull golden in color topped, with a two-fingered off white head. Loping bubbles join the head languidly, and carbonation seems moderate. Lacing is good and lasts throughout the drink, and duration of the head is also fairly good. It’s a pleasing drink to look at, so far, so good.

Hops on the nose are not altogether subtle but they are not overpowering, either. A blend of Simcoe and Cascade, perhaps? Slightly herbaceous. Smells malty-sweet as well…

Aromatic hops and a candi sugar-like sweetness are quite expressive on the first sip. A nice, subtle lingering bitterness keeps the sugar levels in check at first (but only-just). The mouthfeel is full, round, malty-sweet. Strikes me as much more of an old ale/strong ale than it does a Double-Pale Ale or American-style Imperial IPA. Also --shades of "Eye of the Hawk"!-- this one is quite dangerously-drinkable.

Further into the drink it's a malt-bomb, which surely some folks enjoy more than others. I'm not feeling the booze (much less heat) in the way that others who've reviewed it already have discerned, but I've been tippling more than customary of late, so I must just be high on the ladder. Not especially bad as it warms, but the sweetness matched with the medium-full body really brings the drinkability down, especially as the hop profile really tends to fade into the background.

Not a bad beer by any sense, and probably better than average to some, but just an “okay beer” to my tired old tastebuds. It seems to try for something (?) and just doesn't quite make it. A worthy effort, but needs some tweaks. As a dessert beer or a beer to get "bombed" on, this one works just fine.

Note: This reminds me of "Double Dog" from Flying Dog another one that I didn't really enjoy. No date code on either the bottle or label that that I can see....

Another gift from a buddy in Minnesota. Here we go.

A - 22 oz bomber. No, for lack of a better term, "born-on date." Poured into my Founders tulip. A light amber color with a two-finger, rock head that dissipates and immediately leaves lace. Pretty nice actually.

S - I smell pretty much barley only. I might be way off. This smells like the stuff they give you on the Sam Adams tour to try. There's a little bit of sweetness (honey?) at the end. Not much to set this apart, to be honest.

T - Sweet at the beginning and stays that way. And stays. And stays. A little burn at the end. I can see this being pretty gross if I let it warm, but chilled, it's ok. Nothing great. Ok though.

M - heavy and oily. There's a little bit of refreshing carbonation, but not much. Ugh, the maltiness won't get off my tongue!

O - A definite sipper, although I'm scared to let it get to room temp. It's a little strong to quaff regularly. Not my favorite. Reminds me too much of Sympathy for the Lager, which is the only craft beer I've drain-poured while drunk. Not a good similarity.

The pour is nearly copper in color with a white head. Rather sweet on the nose with lots of caramel and toffee. Very little hop character, maybe just a bit of an herbal note. The flavor is similarly poor. Bread, caramel, and toffee are the primary flavors with minimal hop influence.

Strong alcohol content (9%) permeates the taste to the point of being slightly detrimental to the overall experience of the beer. As a pale ale, it is, of course, hoppy. I like that. But the aftertaste of alcohol overwhelms any other taste. The serving container was large, and it is crisp for a hot summer. But I will only drink it again if I find it on tap (to see if there is a difference).
