Great color on this beer that makes you think its gonna taste very tropical and delicious and it does not dissapoint. Amazing beer super well rounded, has tons of tropical fruit notes but also has great pine/resin notes in there as well, enough of a malt backbone to make this beer super drinkable and it finishes eaassyy...love this stuff

Bottle poured into a Spiegelau glass, compliments of BRClemons - thanks for this one Brady!

A: Pours a hazy light copper with just over a finger of white frothy head that reduces fairly slowly and leaves a fair amount of lacing. When the head reduces it leaves a thin dense layor across the entire top of the glass.
S: The aroma coming out of the bottle before I even poured was a total dank bomb. I get a near even balance of pine and citrus, which I would give the slight edge to pine. When poured into the glass the same balance remained, but once it started warming up the pine became even more dominant.
T: The taste is the opposite of the aroma for me. It's almost an even balance, only with the slight edge going to citrusy fruits. It remains this way through the whole glass. I can't believe just how much flavor is packed into this beer.
M: Perfectly carbed, leaves a slightly dry finish.
O: My new benchmark for the style. The balance in aroma and flavor is near flawless. I am always nervous going into a highly rated beer, fearing it's all hype. Double Sunshine has absolutely earned it's reputation.
