Serving glass: Poured from bottle into IPA glass.

Appearance (4.25): Mostly clear orange with foamy, off-white head and good lacing.

Smell (4.5): Dank and citrusy, with tart grapefruit, orange, weed, tropical notes, pine and spiciness. There are also some nice caramel and toasted malts.

Taste (4.25): While the hops are the centerpiece here, this is more balanced than the standard Day Tripper. Pretty much everything I noted in the aroma is in the taste, which is great. Some bitterness on the end, but I was surprised by the balance here and by the fact that, in many ways, this is milder than the standard Day Tripper.

Feel (4.5): Moderately high carbonation, with a surprisingly light body. Or maybe it is medium bodied, but it is certainly lighter than expected for the style. Mostly dry and even tart finish. Slightly boozy.

Overall (4.25): Great beer here that actually tastes like a stronger version of Day Tripper, which I don't usually find to be the case with these Double beers.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an Indeed shaker glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head which slowly settle into a thinner layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy and dank hop forward aroma with big hints of pine and citrus. Citrus hops with big hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, and melon. Big mix of earthy and herbal hops with hints of spicy pine resin and fresh grass. Background malt hints of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Very hop forward and ripe smelling. Pretty good.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a big dank assault of hops with big notes of pine and citrus fruit. Big notes of earthy, herbal, and floral hops with some spicy pine resin and wet grass. Ripe citrus fruit presence with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, mango, tangerine, melon, and passion fruit. Solid backing presence of sweet malt with notes of caramel, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A very good hoppy taste.

Mouthfeel: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Very juicy and fairly chewy. Finishes pretty dry. A little alcohol heat is noticeable but it’s not overly hot.

Overall: A very good bulked up version of an already great ale. Good dank mix of juicy citrus hops and pine.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml foiled and capped bottle into a Founders snifter.

Pours a big, frothy 2 finger light cream colored head with great retention. Lacing is thick, layered and webbed with excellent stick. Beer is a slightly muddy dark orange-peach. Great looking beer.

Nose is pine resin hop bitterness, brown sugar, tree sap and a slight touch of booziness. Moderately aromatic. Nice but I already know this isn't my type of hop offering.

Opens tea, tree sap and pine resin hop bitterness balanced by a touch of brown sugar. More resin, bark, and dried leaves in the middle. Ends more tree sap and amber. Aftertaste is bitter and slightly grainy. Again, not my style but this is a well constructed beer.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down surprisingly smooth and a bit sticky. Finishes messy with a long, lingering aftertaste. Solid.

A decent beer up and down but the flavor profile just isn't my cup of tea. Worth trying if you're into the more resin-y and tea flavored hop profile beers.

Steasy66, the man.

Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy orange-amber with a half finger of thick and sticky looking off-white head.

Smell. Wow, papaya, green onion, oranges, and sweet toasty grains. Smells better than those components sound.

Taste. Big sweet toasted malts and honey, Big floral hops, sweet tropical fruits, grass, bitter citrus rinds especially in the lightly astringent and oily bitter finish. No booze. Very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Lots of flavour and all good stuff. Cheers buddy!

Appearance: A gorgeous amber color with a thick khaki head that was bubbling and dissipating slowly.

Nose: What a great beer should do, especially one that is increasing it's stature from its smaller version. Like great original artwork, or style... you just know the beer when you smell it. I could do this with Kind Sue, and I can do it with Double Day Tripper. I get huge astringent hops notes of lemon, fresh cut grass, almost "Squirt soda" found in Day Tripper Pale Ale. I also get dank mosaic notes and a clean bread malt.

Taste: Immediate citrusy hops in the front, followed by a dank and tropical passion fruit. Notes of citrus, papaya, kiwi, backed with a stable cracker malt that helps give the beer depth, but also keeps it fresh and moving. It's not overly malty at all, or too sweet like a Dog Fish 90. This is really well crafted beer. It's a little tease for me to have to wait for March for their Let It Ride release, which is one of my favorite beers of all-time. Fantastic balance.
