Bottled 1/23/13. Wish I hadn't sat on this one for almost 6 months. Golden hazy pour w/ a 2-3 finger creamy white head in an IPA friendly glass. Nose of light pine and malt. Carbonation is on point as the mouth feel is smooth and not at all sticky as sometimes is the case w/ double IPAs. Strong malt backbone keeps it from being overwhelmingly 'piney'. Very well balanced. Not the typical citrus you would expect, much more piney w/ a grapefruit, tart finish.
Sometimes collaborations feel more like marketing ploys, this one certainly isn't. Seek it out & give it a try. Not what you would expect from a double IPA - in a good way.
