Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at James Joyce in Ybor City. Served in a pint glass.
A: Nice gold color with a fair amount of chill haze. One finger of white foamy head and an average amount of visible carbonation.
S: Hoppy aromas up front (pine, grass and herbs), and some light malts and lager yeastiness. Low sulfur character, if any.
T: The clean malt flavors show the lager style, but the hops become a nice counterpoint - pine, grass, and some grapefruit citrus. It isn't a bitter hop bomb at all, just well-integrated.
M: Fairly light-bodied for an IPA, but certainly more do it than most American Pale Lagers. Carbonation sensation is fairly low, and the alcohol is quite well-hidden.
O: I found this to be pretty enjoyable. Recommended if you're in the mood for something a little different.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle with a transparent amber color, plenty of bubbles, and a foamy, long-lasting white head. Has a grapefruit and pine aroma. Taste is the same, with a little bit of hops. Has a crisp medium-body feel with medium carbonation. This is a very nice session beer that doesn’t sit heavy on the stomach and tastes delicious.

I bought the "Double Agent IPL" as part of a Sam Adams "IPA Hopology" case that I bought at Costco...
Frankly, it's a thin beer that has just-average IPA flavors and it just doesn't get to join the "Awesome IPA" family...
