Picked up a single in early February from Fry's as part of a mixed sixer for $1.50. Best by June 2014.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that dissipated pretty quickly but is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is light cereal with hints of citrus.

Taste is pretty well balanced between the cereal malts and the citrus and tropical fruit hop. Finish leaves a bit of of pine resin.

Mouthfeel is decently carbonated and refreshing.

Overall this is a pretty tasty brew that is nice and refreshing. Makes for a nice warm weather refresher.

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...
