This is a big, tasty double IPA that is truly double all around. It is creamy and malty enough to stand up to the heavy hops. It's pretty and clear in the glass and pours with nice color throughout the brew (lightly colored head).
It is about what I expected, though, and that is not a complement. I expected it to be heavy in a bad way. It turns out it is just a bit too bitter - slightly off balance, but still quite drinkable - you would be a fool to refuse one and for some people this may be the perfect balance.
Overall, it's a nice glass full of hops and I would buy it again (but not at the same price - it was too expensive).
A later view on the same beer:
I really shouldn't complain about an American Double IPA. I love these beers. This one in particular is not something to complain about - it isn't overbearing or wimpy, and for the style is quite drinkable. I'm not sure, but I think even the price was quite palatable.
Based on MY mood, though, it needed to be a bit srtonger - maltier, hoppier, etc. This would be a thin line to tread, as the balance is quite good. The other beers I was drinking today erred on the other side - too much. If the price is what I think, I will give this brew another chance, in large quantity.
Not the same sentiment, but the same drinker and the same beer. Just in a yard work setting.

12oz bottle poured into traditional pint
Pours a hazy rust color with a thin, delicate, cream colored collar of foam.
Mild herbal, citrus-fruit nose.
This is where it got me. It was maltier than, and not as hop-forward, as expected. A bit of honey with all the citrus characteristic that I had smelled earlier, but the malt had mellowed this into an easy drinker.
It felt smooth on the tongue with the slight bubbly finish(surprising due to the lack of initial head)
Not just "good for what it is", it's just plain good.
