Tap sample at the brewery. Bronze with a white 2 finger head, medium carbonation.
Aroma is of pine resin, harsh. Does not invite me in saying, "I'm different". Nothing new here at all, new recipie notwithstanding.
Too many different hops spoiled this brew's flavor here. A muddled hop mess leaving me thinking how did they arrive at the proportions of each. At what point do the varieties cancel each other out or simply become additive of the flavor/aroma of the next? The seven varieties are a gimmick IMHO. I don't feel or taste the alleged beefed up malt bill, trounced by the hop schedule.
Mouthfeel is kind of thin compared to other IPA's double or otherwise.
I loved the single varietal Double Simcoe IPA, a new Weyerbacher release. It lets the hop speak for itself in all its simplicity and that is indeed refreshing. The aroma, in particular, was far superiour.

3.85/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
The color is that of long unpolished tarnished brass, a thick sort of brownish-orange. It's almost muddy-looking, and completely opaque. The tan head isn't large but it's pretty tight. Lacing is left in moderate to heavy spotting.
There's a raw sort of sweetness on the nose before oily, resinous pine and citrus peel.
The flavor is primarily piney bitterness with definite citrus support. It's raw, earthy and lightly, but not overbearingly, pithy. Just a touch of biscuity malts adds balance. Fruity esters add an interesting element that runs all the way through.
It's about equal parts crisp and smooth, a good feel considering how thick it looks. It isn't particularly, and it's got a nice bite that carries through in its fairly bright medium body. It leans a little cloying, not from sweetness but that thickness does almost pull into it.
