Poured in tulip. Surprised by the almost pink color. Sweet malt aroma. Not as much citrus hop aroma as I was looking for. Earthy first taste notes. Strong grapefruit aftertaste that is almost overbearing. Not very balanced for a double ipa.

Really good beer. The "4" rating, Very Good, captures my impression.

I prefer my brew bitter so this one actually tastes somewhat sweet / cloying, but I'll take it over 90% of what's available today. And the price is right. Last time I bought a 6-pack the cans were sort of pink colored. Squatters claims they will donate 5 cents to breast cancer research for every pink can sold. So, 2 reasons to try it and enjoy !

This is an old school classic DIPA. Good malt backbone, nice hop bite, balanced, and No grapefruit taste. Sorry, but some of us don't care for the current fascination with grapefruit flavored beer. This is a good solid, bold, DIPA, or Imperial IPA that reminds me of the extinct New Belgium Rampant, before they ruined it with all that Voodoo nonsense.

Nice looking amber color, relatively clear. Healthy two finger head that lingers and has really great lacing. Inviting scents of orange-peel, grapefruit, pineapple and pine tree. Bold front palate flavors of pine, grapefruit, freshly turned earth, then the finish is a long lasting malt with slight hints of caramel. Medium-full body with a long, long finish. Slightly prickly carbonation. I would have never guessed this was the same beer from the nose to the palate. Thought it would have picked up more fruit flavors based on the scents. Interesting beer if you're in the mood for a change of pace from the fruit bombs.

Look - clear golden color with to big of a head, before tasting it I'd guess it to be over carbonated
Smell - piney resin dank scent
Taste - big caramel malt backbone with a piney hop
Feel - medium body with a light creamy carbonation, almost taste like a nitro
Overall - I really feel the carbonation put this beer down otherwise I think it would be much better.

As an experiment I got both a bottle and a can as I haven't tried anything in a bottle and a can side by side, I'm only doing one review for both but I'll note any differences I notice.
Pours deep amber with a thin medium head
The smell is balanced of hops and malt with a sharp burn of alcohol
The taste is of bitter hops and alcohol, I can feel the hair growing on my chest as I write this

As for the difference between bottle and can, the can just seems to have preserved better, very very slight stale aroma in the bottle one

This is a solid double, not too hoppy, but 9% all the less allowing the hops to bring a relieving finish after the burn of alcohol

12 oz can.
Enjoy by 10/27/17

Something interesting and good going on from what I get when smelling the can.

It has a nice creamy mouthfeel, and great flavor.

I am impressed with this double IPA. It's gooooood. For $8 a six-pack, this beer is a bargain.

Sweet fruit with a real earthy hop character.
Cloudy amber with gold/red and a thick and dense off-white head that took awhile to show and showed some nicely sticky lacy qualities.
A nice mixed sweetness up front with some fruit noted. Hop flavor is largely earthy again and the malty sweetness helps round this out. Light on the overall bitterness although it grows with warming and time.
Not a slick body. A little bigger than moderate. Hints of alcohol. Smooth enough carbonation.
Thanks Jason.

Picked this up today on a whim at a local store. Overall to me it seems like an IPA rather than a double. It has a 9% abv but there is not much going on here. Hops are not what I would expect in a DIPA. Taste is OK, just not exciting.
