The little brother of this beer became my go-to brew in the summer of 2015, so I’m looking at this 16 oz. can meaning to crush the life out of it. Best by 11/29/15 on the bottom of the can. I don’t know what that means.

The pour is a darker, filtered orange. The nose, perhaps drifting over from the visual, is mostly oranges, with a bit of caramel & birch bark. Really, not much going on in the nose even after resting on its ass for 15 minutes out of the fridge.

Double Day Tripper reminds me of a mean older brother. Most of the things I love about Day Tripper are absent or crushed here except a nice, sharp bittering hoppiness. After that there is enough onion to repel Dracula, & said rooty bulb was not washed before being tossed into the kettle. Caramel malt emerges & disappears in the mid-palate, as does a sliver of orange. Boozy. Thick & syrupy, which is nice, but it’s perhaps the first Indeed beer that I have way, way too much of in my pint glass.

I’m not sure if it was intentional, but the onion in this is overpowering, & not in a good way. For my palate, this is a very bad beer from a very good brewery; I’m not going to get close to finishing this, & feel an overwhelming urge to scrub my mouth out. A shame.

16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Love the froth on top, sticky lacing all the way down the glass. Fresh toasty malt, caramel, warming alcohol, orange rind, fallen apples, and hay in the nose and on the palate. Smooth and crisp with a slightly bigger body. Alcohol, toasted grain, and some citrus rind flavor linger in the finish. Quite the strong ale, very easy to knock back ... dangerous for its size.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into IPA glass. (Update: simply ecstatic that this is now canned)

Appearance: Mostly clear orange with foamy, off-white head and good lacing.

Smell: Dank and citrusy, with tart grapefruit, orange, weed, tropical notes, pine and spiciness. There are also some nice caramel and toasted malts.

Taste: While the hops are the centerpiece here, this is more balanced than the standard Day Tripper. Pretty much everything I noted in the aroma is in the taste, which is great. Some bitterness on the end, but I was surprised by the balance here and by the fact that, in many ways, this is milder than the standard Day Tripper.

Feel (4.5): Moderately high carbonation, with a surprisingly light body. Or maybe it is medium bodied, but it is certainly lighter than expected for the style. Mostly dry and even tart finish. Slightly boozy.

Overall: Dank! Great beer here that actually tastes like a stronger version of Day Tripper, which I don't usually find to be the case with these Double beers.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an Indeed shaker glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head which slowly settle into a thinner layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy and dank hop forward aroma with big hints of pine and citrus. Citrus hops with big hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon zest, tangerine, and melon. Big mix of earthy and herbal hops with hints of spicy pine resin and fresh grass. Background malt hints of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Very hop forward and ripe smelling. Pretty good.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a big dank assault of hops with big notes of pine and citrus fruit. Big notes of earthy, herbal, and floral hops with some spicy pine resin and wet grass. Ripe citrus fruit presence with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, mango, tangerine, melon, and passion fruit. Solid backing presence of sweet malt with notes of caramel, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A very good hoppy taste.

Mouthfeel: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Very juicy and fairly chewy. Finishes pretty dry. A little alcohol heat is noticeable but it’s not overly hot.

Overall: A very good bulked up version of an already great ale. Good dank mix of juicy citrus hops and pine.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml foiled and capped bottle into a Founders snifter.

Pours a big, frothy 2 finger light cream colored head with great retention. Lacing is thick, layered and webbed with excellent stick. Beer is a slightly muddy dark orange-peach. Great looking beer.

Nose is pine resin hop bitterness, brown sugar, tree sap and a slight touch of booziness. Moderately aromatic. Nice but I already know this isn't my type of hop offering.

Opens tea, tree sap and pine resin hop bitterness balanced by a touch of brown sugar. More resin, bark, and dried leaves in the middle. Ends more tree sap and amber. Aftertaste is bitter and slightly grainy. Again, not my style but this is a well constructed beer.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down surprisingly smooth and a bit sticky. Finishes messy with a long, lingering aftertaste. Solid.

A decent beer up and down but the flavor profile just isn't my cup of tea. Worth trying if you're into the more resin-y and tea flavored hop profile beers.
