12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass
Best by August 2011
Appearance: Semi-clear in clarity with a honeyed copper color. Beautiful off-white, creamy, yet slightly frothy head. Excellent retention. Rings of lacing are left on the glass. I can see tiny bubbles in this one.
Smell: The first thing I noticed was my beloved spicy Belgian yeast. Slightly malty, earthy, and very floral. I'm also picking up some faint banana notes. Hints of lemongrass and coriander are in the background. There is a mild fruit presence in this one as well. Hints of biscuit.
Taste: The arrival is very balanced. I'm getting some spicy citrus notes. The taste is very similar to the nose. I noted a juicy, crisp, and drying citrus finish, which dissipates until all that is left is a Belgian spiced orange memory. The alcohol is nicely masked with the hop/yeast balance. Faintly on the sweeter/dryer side, but not nearly to the extent of Chimay Tripel. Quite enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: A small margin lighter than medium bodied. Sufficient carbonation (not over the top). Very refreshing. Easily sessionable.
Ending notes: When I saw this on the shelf, I had to pick it up as I am always ready to try a new BIPA. I liked this brew a lot; will definitely have to get it again. Overall, I must say that I was impressed. Nicely done, Clipper City!

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.
