3.9/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Fine head. Slightly pee-colored in that it is a dirty-yellow/light orange, yet very clear with little bubbles still climbing up. Smell hit me initially with orange peel or lemon peel. Not just sharp citrus, definately some funk in there, no doubt a twist thrown on by a heavier malt base. Taste is surprisingly light with bitterness throughout yet never overpowering. Hop flavor is more obvious than hop bitterness. There is a perfume-like floral quality to the hop profile. But there is a lingering sweetness that sort of reminds me of an orange tootsie pop. That sweetness keeps the alc off quite nicely, too.

Since the bitterness is manageable, the sweetness cuts the high abv, and body is rather light, this double ipa ends up being a surprisingly drinkable brew, especially considering the stats. I say, "Go for it! Connect four!"
