IBU of 90 should indicate this is no watered down IPA. Fun & interesting from the first taste. If you want a very Hearty beer this one is it. Not for every occasion but get your beer drinking buddies together to enjoy and critique together. This beer should be enjoyed without food, just the beer.

Poured into an imperial nonic a a clear orange infused medium golden with a tightly formed pne finger white head,a great head and a menacing looking body.Drunken fruits and pine resin in the nose,just like it should be,you can tell it's gonna be sweet and alcoholic but the hops are larege and in charge.I gotta say this is much dryer on the palate than I was expecting,not a big sweet alcohol bomb but also not a big resiny hopped up bomb either.Dryer with a firm maltiness and rsiny hops,the sweetness creeps but the alcohol is pretty big.As I drink more the alcohol gets bigger but it's still not nearly as sweet as many of the style,a resiny almost spearmint-like hoppiness prevails along with alcohol.Another NO-LI winner in my opinion.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.
A: Slightly hazy, light orange-amber color with over one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Medium localized lacing remains on the glass and tiny yeast particles hang uniformly distributed in the column.
S: Piney and slightly toasted, with a floral suggestion confined to the margins. No alcohol is detected.
T: Begins off-dry, with crisp pale malt and hops aromatics that match well the smell. Acidity peaks into the middle where a thread of honey develops after the most assertive hops flavors begin to retreat. Development of bitterness seems a bit delayed, eventually achieving moderate intensity for style. Metabolites are not obvious or cloying, but do seem to fill in the gaps. No alcohol is detected.
M: Medium viscosity, slightly acidic and syrupy on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: Apparently standing just uphill of the border between regular IPA and double, this beer features a focused hops profile amidst other nuances that make it reasonably drinkable. While proficiently crafted, it lacks the sort of quality that one would brag to others about.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. No dates noticeable on the bottle.
Pours pretty, clear coppery golden with a pretty fluffy white head, fades fairly fast and leaves a clumpy sheet along the side of the glass. Smell is mild, but tasty. Floral, citrus, honeysuckle, reminds me of A Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.
Taste is weighted toward the grapefruit rind, lots of sweetness detectable but still dominated by the hops. This is actually pretty darn tasty.
Mouthfeel is light but slightly slick. Overall, pretty good! First beer I've tried from these guys, I think.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bottle
A - goldish orange with a soft, white head that has good retention
S - faintly herbal, crystal malts
T - citrus, bready, sweet malt, alcohol, faintly herbal, faintly piney
M - medium bodied, well carbonated, warm
This is a nice DIPA. It has a nice, complex hop character, solid balance, a nice drinkability for the ABV. This is definitely worth a try.

22oz Bomber with no bottling date into a snifter
Pours a pretty orange color with a moderate white head. Smell is mild NW piney hops, typical for an IPA though I'd expect a bit more from a double. Taste is quite surprising. Not heavy at all, and in fact even lighter than their regular IPA despite the higher ABV. I'd guess this was in the 5-6% range. Light citrus and NW hops with a bitter finish. Beer goes down very smooth and this is one that you could finish a bomber off quick.
Overall a very solid IPA. Dont think of this one as a double, because it's really not.
