12 oz Bottle poured into a small goblet

This beer gets style points for its darker appearance (a ruby brown) and its aroma. As some people have noted, it's much more towards the Belgian end of the spectrum than toward the IPA - its thin, eggshell colored head and lack of carbonation goes more towards a darker Belgian dubbel or tripel. Same for the aroma: nice grapefruit citrus from the hops settles in with the fruity, spicy aromas from the yeast. Very well done there.

It also tastes more like a hopped dubbel or tripel than a slightly spicy IPA, which, again, I'm a fan of. Lots of tart dryness, ester, tang from the hops. Even though the Belgian qualities are to the fore, let it sit for a bit and you'll know you're drinking an IPA. Minor critique there: although the beer's full and thick, I could have gone for a bit more fizz.

Overall, definitely one to check out. Not too big, not too small, not too pricey: worth it for the smell alone. Good thing the rest of it's not half bad either...

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #65 (June 2012):

LOOK: Weathered amber; tight, tiny-bubbled lace

SMELL: Buckwheat honey, peppery, guava, persimmon, lemon pith, medicinal, estery, yeast, dried grass, toasted bread

TASTE: Smooth, medium bodied, bitter snap, phenolic, ripe tropical fruit, grassy, evergreen, yeast, peppercorn, leafy, porridge; dry, bitter finish

From the first sip, Double Cannon goes right to the palate for a submission. We are not going to tapout, though it doesn’t let up much at all, which of course makes us want to take another sip. A vicious circle that we’ll sit back and enjoy. Great marriage between two thoughts of brewing.
