22oz bottle $7.99. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, hint of malts. Flavor is hoppy but in a fruity way and a thick malt behind it. It is not bad at all. I am totally biased towards West Coast beers and this isn't one but its a decent beer, sort of chewy malts. This won't knock your socks off but you won't regret the purchase, at least I don't.

8.0% ABV. "Double India Pale Ale." 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle acquired at Lone Tree brewing this afternoon and served into a Guinness goblet in me friend's gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger wide head of beige colour. Nice soft complexion. Decent creaminess. Nice thickness. Good (~5 minute) retention. Nice frothiness.

Body colour is a clear vibrant copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Transparent. Translucent.

Overall, it's pretty standard fare for the style but it's appealing.

Sm: Floral and oily hop character. Clean pale malts. Soap/detergent. Some lemon zest.

No yeast or alcohol is detectable. A mild strength aroma.

T: Soapy - this spent too long in primary. Clean pale malts. Some floral hop character. Light fruit: tangerine, maybe orange. No naked hop bitterness comes through. I guess the balance is okay, but the soapiness ruins the flavour profile.

No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Flavour intensity is timid for the style; this isn't very flavorful at all. Flavour duration is also a bit mild.

Little complexity or subtlety here. I'm not a big fan.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Soapy. Lightly oily. Decently carbonated. A bit too thick on the style. Doesn't really suit the profile well.

Dr: Tolerable but ultimately rather mediocre. A rather poor Imperial IPA, but it's passable in general terms. I certainly wouldn't get it again. Alcohol is hidden okay. A(nother) disappointment from Lone Tree brewing.
