2.5/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.25

22oz bottle poured in pint glass. Beer is a bright red amber with a thin white head. Aroma is again slightly estery. Flavor is oddly sweet. I object to the label "double I.P.A." to describe this. This is an American Strong (pale) Ale, and not a good one. I think it tastes of adjunct and perhaps corn specifically. The balance is all wrong to be any kind of IPA, and there's no distinct hop flavor of any kind, flowery, citrusy, spicy -- nothing. Just syrupy sweet and alcohol with a light carbonation and a back of the throat bitterness. 8.4% ABV and 75 IBU ought to give the brewery enough room to pack in a lot of flavor -- in fact it rather mandates flavor. This is even worse than the Boatswain "single" / American IPA. Inexplicably my expectations were higher. Oh well, it sure was cheap.

3.09/5  rDev +17%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, couldn't find a date. Pours a bright orange with a one inch off white, that leaves some traces of lace. Smell is odd, turpentine, orange, pine, and cloyingly sweet. Taste is a little better, not bitter as you expect, the alcohol isn't as strong, some tropical flavors, and grapefruit. Body is medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and once you get past the odd flavors it goes down o.k. $2.49 a bomber and I know why, it could be worse, but not much.

I don't know I guess I had to see what a $2.98 IPA taste like. I knew it would be to good to be true but I am in Seattle..curiosity killed the cat for sure. A Natty Light drinker might be impressed! Great for trick or treat or a spoof on your best friend.
