I'll admit this one is a tad thing for a DIPA, but the flavor profile does it justice. The aroma does not have the punch of some of my favorite doubles but the notes of pine and fruit create a really well balanced flavor that is just so enjoyable. Great balance of sweet and bitter that works so well. This one is a staple in my beer fridge. At 9%, canned in six packs at a hell of a price, this one is a winner!

A - Dark gold, almost reddish. White head leaves heaby lacing.
S - Hop heavy of course. Pine resin, some earthy notes, grass. Light caramel.
T - Little bit of the malt sweetness before the hop bitterness lands.
M - Medium body (which feels thin for a DIPA) Medium carb. Moves over the palate. Bitterness doesn't linger.
O-Surprisingly drinkable for a double. Well put together. Happy to have tried.

Certainly not bad. But kind of thin for a IIPA, like Dirtwolf. And not getting much in the rather mild aroma. And there isn't the wonderful ripe-fruit sweetness of Dirtwolf. There's also an aftertaste of bright ethanol that blunts what IIPA-goodness came before it. Definitely a nice, bready grain.

Wait, wait. Actually, as it warms, it's getting a lot better. A bigger malt sweetness has emerged to counter the astringent aftertaste. I'm gonna raise my original score (3.75).

The aroma is still really not good.

I have consumed this nectar from the gods’ dozens, if not hundreds of times. So maybe I figured I would write a review. Firstly, some of the reviews here that came in under a 4 – I automatically assume that you are part of ISIS, or un-American. This is without a doubt, one of the top 5 beers I have had to date. Most craft beer “snobs” would not know a good IPA if it slapped him in the liver. Firstly, for some reason here in South Dakota the glass bottles are cheaper than the bottles. I poured out of the glass bottle for this; It pours a very light orange color with a bright white head, the head stays throughout the duration of the beer and lacing is great. The Aroma didn’t quite slap me with hops as expected out of most (double) IPA’s where as you have a pine/grassy/grapefruit smells. After tastes are Carmel and a very apparent malt after taste. They nailed this double IPA, not bitter but smooth. Carbonation is perfect throughout the entire beer. As a warning this beer hits the scales at a whopping 9%ABV- Know that polishing off a 6er of this will incapacitate you for a bit. We have all been young and grabbed that $2.00 tall boy of “high gravity” in our younger days that tasted like a mix between ethanol, nail polish remover, gonorrhea and your worst headache. Squatters Double IPA I would venture to say is the grown up high gravity for people who don’t want to punish their liver with old English. I will reiterate, three of these sets me just right after a long day of work, more than 3 getting up early is more of a chore anymore. I have tried numerous other DIPA beers and only other beer that has come close has been Rogue’s Brutal IPA.

Nutty biscuit nose with some citrus. Pours bright orange with a slight haze under a yellow tinted 1” white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The palate begins with biscuit, a hint of nuts, fruit – orange and then melon followed by a hint of lemon ending with a citrusy bitter finish that lingers. Medium carbonation and body with a finish tending towards dry. 9% alcohol not very noticeable.
