This is not remotely close to what a double IPA should be. There is no noticeable hop flavor or aroma. It's certainly strong enough, even closing in on fusel-ly. It's also bitter enough for the strength but would be better described as an old ale or barleywine.

Bought at Trader Joe's, no clue how long it's been on the shelf.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance- Light brown with a lot of carbonation. Little to no head retention.

Smell- Not a lot of excitement on the smell. Smells sort of like a bud light with a slight hint of hops.

Taste- A little but of hoppiness but not noticeably citrus or floral, just bitter. Maltiness is more noticeable than the hoppiness.

Mouthfeel- Oily and slick. Alcohol is noticeable.

Overall- Definitely the least expensive double IPA I've ever bought but I wouldn't really call it a double IPA. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this for human consumption.
