Bottle into a sam adams glass. Clear copper color, lot of carbonation. Decent white head with good lacing.
Smell is grass and butterscotch, with just a bit of alcohol.
Taste is malt sweetness with a nice balance of hops. Alcohol taste is non existent. Easy to drink and smooth. Each drink makes me want to have another one. Helped by the velvety mouthfeel and dry finish. Has a bit of a plastic taste, but it is overshadowed by the other good parts of the beer.
Overall, very drinkable. Especially considering the ABV.

Not a bad beer and is palatable but not to my personal liking. It has a very thick syrupy feel in the mouth. Smell(in a can) was too sweet for me. Taste was not hoppy enough for a double ipa. And lacks bitterness which I like. I would not write it off as a bad beer but I feel it does not live up to traditional double ipa standards. I'll have to try it in a glass to see how it taste on draft.
