Had this one again on 08/01/2015 at the brewery in the new location. Poured into a snifter glass, fairly clear amber color with a thin head that eventually fades. Really great initial aroma of sweet citrus and herbal hops. Great strong flavor, definitely an unknown DIPA that can keep up with others. Big citra flavor here, super juicy hops and a nice sweet orange note. Bartender says that it is dry-hopped on citra. Easy to drink but they start to feel a bit heavy when warm, this one is more of a sipper. Had two and it started to hit me so I called it quits. They do have plans to bottle it so I can't wait for that.

Excellent local brew! Plenty of bite and a really nice aroma/taste. At $12/6 pack a great value. If you like Road2Ruin from 2Roads you'll like this. Try it, you'll like it!

No bottled on date. Pours a beautiful straw amber color. Smells of malt, grass, and lightly citrus. Taste is very English type hop forward, with Amarillo hops in the mix, and a strong roasted malt backbone. Alcohol taste is present, but not overpowering. A very interesting DIPA, not a hop bomb by any means, but very enjoyable.

Pours clear, amber, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is very herbal with some florals, tangerine, cracker, and biscuit. Nice mix of bitter and sweet. Not the most bitter double ipa, but a very solid brew. Thimble Island is right up there with my favorite Connecticut brews and this beer is at the top of that pack.

A nice fairly smooth double IPA made in Connecticut with a nice 8% kick. Has complex flavor with hops, pine resin and citrus rinds all playing off each other and has a smooth crisp finish. I would compare it with Dogfish 60 and Lagunitas Sucks

So the look is great and I'm a tough on Dipa's. A good double should maintain a foam ring till the last sip and it did. The smell is hops and booze which for 8% is a bit disappointing but the hops were there. The taste was stronge and stouty with a kick of hops not bad but I would have expected a slightly higher apv for the taste. The feel was on point nice and stiff but still finished smooth. Overall not bad but not great. The look and feel was awesome but the taste and smell were a bit to boozy for 8%
