L - A nice light golden caramel
S - Hop forward and sweet malt
T - A nice balanced hop blend that does a wonderful job hiding the high alcohol content
F - Medium mouth feel that balances well with the aroma and hop bite
O - A darned good double IPA. Many times these stronger IPA's are hard to drink, this one is smooth and easy.

This was a double IPA. This was not a bad double IPA. Very drinkable and would happily drink again, but also wasn't anything life changing.

Outlier review here... underwhelming aroma, piney on the palate (as this review is whiney), no distinct hop character, overall unpolished compared to some fantastically brewed 2x IPAs on the market right now. On the positive I thought this beer produced a wonderful pillow-like head.

* Reviewed from notes taken on 11/11/14

Gold, straw colored, not much head and mild hop, citrus smell. Taste was OK, not much going on? Not as good as DFH 90 minute, but easy drinking like a session IPA, 8.20 % ABV? A good solid DIPA.

Enjoyable 2x IPA. Tastes like a draft pour but this is from bottle. Well done.

Cellarish temperature in my tulip.

Pretty appearance. Bright, light golden orange with fine sediment interspersed throughout an otherwise clear liquid.

The aroma is a somewhat floral, fruity perfume of mango, grapefruit, nectarines, and honey. Smells sweet!

Citrus fully asserts itself in the flavor, transitioning to more of an astringent citrus RIND with resiny pine bitterness, and wrapping up with a mix of the lingering bitterness and bread in the finish.

Feels prickly on the palate. Medium-full.

True to its title, I would say this delivers about two times what the average similarly-priced IPA does.
