Solid beer, but I’m getting a soapiness in the taste that’s a real turnoff. And no, it wasn’t the glass.

Double Duckpin pours a vibrant bright orange color with lots of unfiltered goodies floating around. Not an opaque looking juice bomb, but a liquid orange marmalade color if you will. A hefty and foamy white head sits on top then ripples out to just the sides of the glass. Moderate lacing.

Orange and grapefruit juice surround the air. The citrus is well met by what a morning walk through a damp forest of pine gives off. A touch of lime zest brings it back full circle.

The domination of citrus flows directly into the flavor. More tangerine like in this facet, but all are still there. There is a quick notion of what might be mango or papaya, but it's quickly taken over by a rind and pine needles taste, and yes, I've had pine needles in my mouth once or twice (or a thousand times...don't ask).

The medium juicy feel comes to a bitter and dry finish. It's a bit bubbly and prickly as it flows from front to back. The bitterness lingers,and I like that.

Double Duckpin should be able to please any DIPA fan out there, regardless of style preference. It's fresh, flavorful, big, bold, familiar, and unique all at the same time. It's what a DIPA should be without being monotonous, and a real pleasure to experience. Cheers, and thanks Craig!

Poured from a can dated 8/18/17.

L - A deep orangish-amber color with a very thick, foamy white head that leaves decent lacing.

S - A great mix of pine resin, citrus fruits, and maybe a little floral underneath.

T - The pine resin hits hard first with a nice citrus and floral pop underneath. There is a small taste of alcohol and lingering bitterness on the finish.

M - A big, think feel with medium/high carbonation.

O - A very nice beer, smooth and great flavor. The finish is a little harsh, but it's still very good.

Wowza! This is a good beer. On level with Pliny the first time I had it. Great taste, less filling, and packs a wallop. Love this beer.

Poured into a Tired Hands pint glass a really nice slightly hazy dark orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), some pineyness. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty well. with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Glad to have gotten a chance to try this one. Thanks Craig!

Poured a copper body with two-finger head that left a lace ring down the glass. Aroma is oily, piney, citrusy with hint of sweetness. Smooth, easy to drink, piney, earthy, dank, oily, resin, yet still has this grapefruit/almost tropical fruit sweetness that offers great balance and flavor and finishes easy and is so easy to drink.
