Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly dark hazy orange with a thin white head.

Aroma is a slight lemon mixed with biscuit malt.

Taste is a sweet lemon candy.

Delicious beer.

Now this is a great double. None of that fruity, fluffy New England stuff... clear gold (alright, maybe not perfectly clear) body, big head of foam with lotsa lace left behind... Aromas of pine and resin and caramel backed by the same on the sip... sweetness and bitterness vying for your attention, has a nice tacky aspect, something sticky and sweet, but with a shellac of bitter resin... Medium-light feel, smooth - almost creamy? - and not a lot of carbonation comes through on the tongue. Finishes with a nice bitter hum on the palate. Don't know about the hops used, but this is a great brew. 2/23/17 canning.

Poured into Berliner glass..1 finger small bubble head..continued lacing throughout..good notes of citrisy fruits..not too much pine..good retention of carbonation...reddish tint to a wonderful cloudy appearance...very slight bready taste with a good fresh malt flavor..surprisingly alcohol burn is absent (8.%)..great aftertaste..***
Good IPA drinking beer..for more than 1 at a sitting...***

Pours a beautiful amber with a billowy white head. The nose is of floral, grass and crackers. Taste of floral, hay, toasted crackers with a small citrus and peach undertone. I have been drinking quite a few citrus bombs recently and it was nice to switch gears and appreciate this beautiful and very floral/grassy brew! There is enough citrus underneath all the floral to keep it interesting but I would say it's not the star of the beer and that is fine by me. Medium body somewhat creamy mouthfeel that finishes crisp and somewhat dry. Love me some Double Daisy Cutter!

Hazy, orange/amber color with a creamy head. Streak lacing. Aroma is sweet, ripe fruit and caramel malt. Apricot and peach, orange and melon. Flavor has similar characteristics, along with grapefruit, tangerine, pine, mango, and bready malt. It's resinous and has a bit of a tangy hops bite. Dry finish. Most excellent!
