12 oz. bottle from mix o pack from Von's. Pour is a clear deep golden in color with a one finnger cap of off white foam. Brief retention. Nose of light caramel and old hops yet nothing to deter. Taste is ooooold. No date code to be found but this beer is surely past its prime even though I just bought it yesterday. No real hop notes and tastes more of an amber at this juncture. Does offer a touch of spice and bitterness on the fnish. Overall run away...

I am one who does not enjoy citrus style IPA's and this one from Double Take fits citrus throughout. A nice head and color, for me thats about it for enjoyment of this IPA. A sweet, citrus flavor is over-powering and at 6.9 alcohol, I was very surprised by the over bearing citrus content of this IPA.

Double Take IPA is not a heavy IPA, rather I bet for many, this would be a good IPA for a hot summer day/evening. For myself, I'll move on to something else.

Cheers!

This review done so by glass and bottle.

I picked up a sixer of this up at Dominick's for $6.99 on a whim, so I didn't have huge expectations since the price was right.

A - Looks and pours like a perfect example of an IPA. Golden color with a 2 finger off white head and some nice lacing.

S - The smell was well.. Pretty absent. A little bit of hop bitterness on the nose. It doesn't smell bad, but there isn't much.

T - Its pretty easy to drink and hides the almost 7% abv pretty well. That being said, if you are looking for a nice hop punch... It really isn't there. Finishes nicely though and it does the job.

M - Again, typical mouthfeel for an IPA. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation level.

O - If I was having a family party or something I would definitely throw a couple 6 packs of this in the cooler since its about the same price as your standard American adjunct six pack.

Color is an amber copper with a frothy one and a half finger head that hangs for a while and leaves some nice lacing behind.

The smell is not the IPA smell I had hope for. Only light hoppy aromas to speak of.

Taste isn't what I hoped for either. Drinkable but not deserving of alot of explanation here.
Price is right for what you get though.

The feel I got from this brew was not unpleasant but doesn't make want to go out and get more either. Dry is the main thing that comes to mind.

Overall it has a picture of a pretty girl on label and is priced ok for a party but not anything special.
