look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance isn't something to write home over. Orange and clear, not a lot of head or lace but not bad either, just kinda meh.

That's where the ordinary or uninteresting ends tho. Aroma and flavor are great, especially aroma. Very hoppy with oily hops aroma sticking to the inside of your nose. Flavor isn't lacking either, but has an element of balance (for an otherwise un-balanced style). The malt and grain profiles do come through a bit, but mostly it's all hops, delicious hops. Pass the shovel and put in another scoop!

Body is IIPA ready, not heavy, not blasted with tons of crystal malt, just clean with plenty of room for the hops to shine. Carbonation is within tolerances, but slightly lower than average.

I will certainly be picking up another four pack of this in the next day or two, because this one won't last. Once again, RABC makes it easy to buy local and support your local breweries

12 oz. bottle, with 'best if consumed by' date of 01/21/2015 printed on the back label. My first beer from Real Ale Brewing Co., acquired as an extra via my first trade with Texan956. Thank you, sir. "Edition No. 010".

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a good coppery orange colored body with some nice clarity to it. About a finger of off-white head that leaves behind good scattered lacing. Looks about average, but it looks very nice.

S - Smell is comprised of juicy earthy piney hops, grapefruit, oranges / tangerines, caramel malt, and some soapiness. Floral and tropical smelling. A fairly average smelling IPA, but it smells very fresh and appealing.

T - The taste follows the nose - this is more or less just another nice IPA, nothing very "Double" or "Imperial" about this IPA. No massively amped up malt or hop content. Very juicy / floral / herbal hop content though - pine needles, tangerine, orange rinds, grapefruit. Bready caramel malt to balance things out. Tastes very nice.

M - The feel is crisp and clean, with good hop resins / bitterness clinging to the palate. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a slightly above average IPA from Real Ale, but a very nicely made one at that. Simple, yet delicious and drinkable, with a well hidden abv (7.50% abv according to BeerAdvocate; not listed anywhere on the bottle). A nice IPA, glad to have tried it, but it isn't something I would seek out again.

Real Ale Brewers' Cut Double IPA ---4/5.
