Poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a gorgeous strong golden color with some copper hints. A nice .5 inch head is present. When it recedes in leaves a nice thin film with some sticky ring.

S - Sweet grapefruit hints with a citrus backbone as well. Nice grassy hops! SO appealing. Some nice biscuit like grain is in the nose as well.

T - Nice grapefruit citrus quality first off with a nice mix of sweetness. A nice grain back bone guides the massive hop character of this beer. I can see why all the comparisons with HopSlam. Some nut like quality right before the massive hop bitterness and citrus character carries the beer down. Nice bittern dry finish.

S - Crisp, medium body with a nice hop earthy tone. Nice CO2 content.

D - Incredible for and IPA and a beer with 9.4 ABV. Good Job.

I poured this into a Belgian ale glass because I can really appreciate the aroma.

A - a mildly cloudy, copper color with medium head (about a half inch thick).

S - big grapefruit aroma with a clove/pine earthiness.

T - The "double" factor is definitely evident in this one (i.e. don't chug). The warmth of alcohol is mellowed by sweetness and quickly followed by bitter pine. Minimal aftertaste.

M - medium body.

Overall - This is a great example of the style. I haven't found anyone who doesn't appreciate this Double. Thanks Founders!
