Good beer, clear and clean and super dank. It was not as juicy as other NE beers and did not have as good of mouthfeel. Overall a classic IPA and very good

Had this at the West Coast v East Coast event in Denver (Oct. 16). I don't think this was the freshest version of Double Sip as it was a little malty. It was really good, but didn't move me like I had hoped.

Was lucky enough to score a bomber on my last trip to VT.
This is by far one of the top beers I have ever had. It is so full of flavor. An absolute fantastic brew.

Extremely malty, to a fault for a DIPA. I had the August 2016 bottling within a week from the release. By far the biggest disappointment IPA type beer that I've had.

Hoppy tropical booze-juice. First had this beer years ago side-by-side on tap with Heady Topper and HF Double Citra at Prohibition Pig in VT, and Double Sunshine blew them both away. Drinking it again from the bottle I can see what it has on those -- a richness and warmth that fills all of your senses. A notable DIPA.
