3.68/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Aroma: Ripe bananas, fresh pear, melon, and lemon zest all on the nose. Moderate fruity esters dominate with some of the citrus hop aromas taking a back seat. Aroma is more like a Belgian Tripel.
Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with a low white head. Head retention is fair. Has the appearance of river water in the glass. Not the most appealing.
Flavor: Consistent with the aroma. Lots of melon, fresh fruit, pear, and watermelon rind flavors. Earthy background hops provide a good balance. Light spicy (pepper) phenols in the background. Finish is clean and dry.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with spritzy, high carbonation. Slight carbonic bite. A slight warming on the back of the palate. No creaminess.
Overall impression: Reminds me more of a hoppy Belgian Tripel. The Belgian character is too dominant to make me think "IPA". The color seems very odd for any style. Just looks muddy and kind of gross. Overall, a decent beer. I'm glad I tried it but probably won't again.

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.
