Enjoyed Sip of Sunshine much more but this is a very nice IPA. Enjoyed it in Canada at the lake so everything tastes great there. Great color and a very nice aroma of citrus.

Hazy orange with a very large, off-white yellow-tinged foam settling very slowly in large round mounds, leaving thick sheets in uniform layers. Some chunks of sediment came out at full pour and the beer took on an unappetizing look from that point forward.

Smell is dank yet bright cannabic pineapple upside down cake with orange creamsicle and accents of eucalyptus mint.

Taste is tangy, nearing spicy, with a creamy, thick carbonation via a medium body, finishing crisp and semi-wet. Flavors pop of orange flesh and orange rind, pineapple cream, eucalytpus mint with a bitter piney finish. Double Sunshine dries up more with each sip, and also maintains an aspiriny bitterness throughout.

The body is insane on this beer though, easily standing out as the best aspect. It feels so divine.

Double Sunshine was near the top of my want list for a long time and it did not disappoint. This is pretty much my perfect double IPA - the malt backbone is perfectly balanced with the hops and it is a nice easy drinker, even at 8%. I loved Triple Sunshine, but I think this is even better.
