Pours a hazy orange with an almost white foam.

The flavor profile is a lot like it's sibling, Sip of Sunshine. Lots of citrus, pineapple and maybe a bit of papaya. Double Sunshine, however, starts out a bit sweeter and finishes with just a bit of an alcohol kick. Definitely more complex than its more readily available brother.

I'm not sure I prefer this beer to SoS, but it's definitely one of the best IPAs I've had the pleasure of drinking.

Btw, thanks Joe for the chance to try this brew.

Bomber. Pours deep orange, finger white head fades to a ring, soapy lace. Sweet citrusy aroma, mild ripe tropical fruit. Delish tropical fruit citrusy taste, touch of ripe fruit, dank piney woodsy hops, perfect balance. Soft creamy mouthfeel. Incredible brew, met the high expectations.
