This is a deep, richly honeyed sort of amber color, fairly thick in the middle and opaque, for the most part, with some cloudiness to it. The head is a creamy yellow-tinted one, almost a full finger's height with adequate lace sticking to the glass.
Lots of citrus and a boozy note hit the nostrils, an impression of triple sec before some candied orange peel and powdered sugar sweetness transitions to more of a floral and perfume note.
Hops show up a little more strongly in the flavor; it's not an exceptionally hoppy beer, particularly for the style, but it isn't weak. It works in such a way that it does find balance without being overly malty. Oddly, it's a beer that someone who doesn't like hoppy beers may actually like, but it doesn't give up the bitterness. There's a ton of overall citrus character, but the zest (rind) and pith show quite a bit.
The body is medium, fairly creamy and plenty crisp, going ever so slightly astringent just on the end.

Not really my kind of Double IPA. To sweet and no balance. I can't even find any hop flavor at all. The only saving grace is that the bar I am at serves it in a 16oz pint glass. That is all I have to say and why do these things have to be so damn long.
