Poured out of a can into a snifter.

Aroma
Bubblegum, pineapple, dank fresh and citrusy hops.

Appearance
Dark gold, tinges of orange and amber. Opaque. Thin creamy white head quickly dissipates; lacing lasts on the side of the glass. Low to moderate carbonation.

Flavor
Hop bitterness and flavors lead the way. As is not uncommon in highly-hopped beers, it is difficult to detect a distinguishable malt flavor, although it's no doubt there due to a quick venture into sweet flavors before once again being pelted with hop flavors and bitterness, which returns at the end and leaves a lasting impression in the jowls. Despite this being a double IPA, the flavors feel well-placed (not overly hoppy while still having a great hop presence, if that makes any sense.)

Mouthfeel
Mostly medium-bodied, although the hop bitterness makes it feel a bit more full. Smoothly slips over the tongue.

Overall Impression
It's a great double IPA. Hits its marks on aroma, flavor and mouthfeel. Very drinkable, and the 8.8% is hidden well up front. If I was a douche bag (I'd like to think I'm not), I'd dock it for being opaque. It'd be nice for the head to stay around a bit and to have a bit more carbonation to continue surfacing the nice array of hop aromas throughout the glass.
