Very good. Sweet, northeastern ipa goodness. May actually prefer sip of sunshine but we're talking about "do you prefer the best or the best". Would buy truck loads of this if possible.

This is the best double IPA out there in my opinion. Sip of Sunshine is a very worthy replacement for it, but double sunshine was everything I want from an IPA. The dankness of heady with the brightness of SOS. Edges out Abner as my favorite double IPA. Pumped I finally got to try it.

Fresh on tap at the Lawson's 8th Anniversary party. Great color and flavor. Blows regular Sip and Triple Sunshine out of the water. Looking forward to cracking the bottles of this.
