Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with the "bottled on" date printed on the neck. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Clear gold color with a pure white one finger head. Amazing lacing that covers the whole glass.

Smell: The strong, piney, hop aroma is front and center with a hint of grapefruit peel note in the background.

Taste: As expected, a big hop kick throughout with some grapefruit and citrus at the end. The high ABV does not come through in the taste at all.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with higher than average carbonation.

Overall: There's better DIPAs out there, but not that many. The high ABV does not show at all, so this beer just stands on it's merits: A fantastic hop smell and a big hop kick in the palate. Double trouble indeed.

The appearance had a somewhat hazy yet clear copper body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies. Carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell had some pine hops, light mango, some light peppery spice. The taste was bittersweet and peppery with the pine and citrus aspect combined fairly well, dry sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, decent amount of carbonation on this bad boy, ABV not felt so its fairly sessionable. Overall, this is a good DIPA, but still think there’s other DIPA’s out there that I like more.
