This one pours a clear light yellow color, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells really funky and interesting- there's blood orange, gummy candy, mint, weed, pine, forest floor, and apple skin.

This is straight weird, but in a good way. It's just so earthy, it's almost like patchouli or potpourri, with fresh cut grass, weed, mint, and that sort of earthy layer of the forest floor- that's called loam right? There's no real malt character here. This is so hard to unpack.

This is light bodied, crisp, but not super clean, with a slightly lingering bitterness on the finish.

This is tough to figure out, but I think I enjoyed it.

Just one month old, still young. Dark amber pour, dense head, fair retention. Of course, it has hop aroma, this has also the same backgroud notes we experienced when walking through a field of harvest-ready hops - grassy, herbal. The beer grabs you and doesn't want to let go. Layers of flavor, lingering citrus flavors in long finish.

From BeerAdvocate magazine #130 (November 2017):

Bright amber with a super creamy, foamy head, Killer Green is piney, fruity, and juicy, with blood oranges, citrus rind, berries, a hint of melon, and an herbal quality throughout. Plus, it’s resiny with a leafy, raw edge. I also got some candied fruit-like sweetness and a dry bread crust finish. This IPA is packed with the fresh flavors of Centennial and Simcoe hops. Even at 96 IBU, it’s so damn smooth, too.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a speiglau ipa glass.

Look is a dark reddish amber with a big white head.

Aroma is astrigent herbal hops.

Taste is piney bubble gum. An intense mix of both.

16.9 oz bottle, PDT 09-12-17, approximately 3 weeks ago- Pours burnt orange with a large white head that reduces leaving cobwebby lace and a blanket. Aroma is sweetarts, pixie sticks, spicy hops, with a name like Killer Green, you're expecting dank, resinous, weed, not candy, but still pleasant. The taste is spicy hops, piney, sweet malt, medium light bitterness that really shines long after the swallow, the carbonation tingles the mouth, enticing actually. Love this time of year.

I bought a couple of 16 oz bottles of Killer Green in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny gold color, clear with a thick white head.

Smell is a pine a citrus aroma, More sweet citrus, orange and lemon blossoms.

Taste is a sweet fruit flavor. Light on the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is a bit thick and cloying for the style.

Overall a good IPA. Not sire that the wet hopping does much for it, but it is a very sweet tasting, aromatic and floral brew.

My first experience with this brewery - definitely a positive first impression! Bottled 9/27/2016, so getting on a bit, but still quite pleasant in my estimatiion. The head was substantial and lingering, with quite active carbonation. Taste is where this brew stood out for me - there are many flavours at play, including the aforementioned mint. This is an enjoyable IPA and I'm glad I gave it a go!

500ml bottle poured into tulip 4/12/16

A almost clear golden orange, tiny bubbles are everywhere but only manage a finger of dense foam that leaves just a few random spots

S soft caramel, herbal, leafy, sweet candy like hops, faint spruce, overripe mango and orange creamsicle

T more spruce and pine, some citrus rind, there's just a little booze popping up

M medium weight, the tiny bubbles cream it up, I wouldn't guess 97IBU's but it has a bitter bite, slick inside, sticky on the lips, big herbal piney finish

O decent wet hopped brew, couple months on it but still drinking fresh, maybe I was a little hard on the taste and smell score so a little inflated here

I liked it but I doubt I'd go back for a second crack at nearly 10$ for the half liter, I'll give next years batch another go if I see it around

Cloudy and orange with a bubbly head that diminished slowly and left a film. Streak lacing. The aroma is mild tropical fruit and citrus. Caramel malt and hints of floral as well. The flavor is well balanced with a malty backbone and a citrus body. Hints of pine, herbs and spice, even some banana. The finish is crisp and dry, but still leaves you with a resinous mouthfeel. A very good beer overall.

Less than 1 ago bottled on date. Appreciate Double Mountain's user friendly dating. Fresh hop goodness comes to the forefront. Very smooth for 7.5 abv. The bottle notes "hints of mint..." and thankfully they are very faint. Has a nice hop/malt balance for a DIPA. Excellent beer.

Had this from the cask. Pours a pleasing clear caramel tan. Sweetish green citrus aroma, overly sweet finish with a pleasing smoothness from the cask conditioning.
