I have had the DC Mountain at Wilderness several times. It has consistently been one of my favorites. Pours with a thick creamy head and a beautiful unfiltered yellowish color. Great mouth feel with no bitter aftertaste. As with all good Doubles I have tried, it is good slightly warmed in your hands before the first sip and as it warms a bit more it is good to the last drop leaving wanting more.

Mom always said if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.

This is the opposite situation- this beer is phenomenal. I need to tell everyone.

Major IPA snob here: from Alpine to RR to Double Mountain I've searched out the best IPAs that I could find.

This is one of the all time best.

Enjoy.

Oddly, a little more approachable than their single IPA, which can get a bit sticky sweet. This one has more of a piney note, which I enjoyed, although the booze/sweetness do sneak in at the end. Not bad.

I've had three cycles of this so far, and everyone has been consistantly delicious.

A- It's a nice clean look for an IPA

S- Being a hop head I had a field day with all of the grassy, flowery, sunshine and miracle aromas the beer provides. Makes me immediately want to chug it and or get it as a cologne

T- Taste very much like it smells with a wonderful hop first and last taste. Nice amount of alcohol and flavors of everything from sweet to grapefruit to pepper.

M- I can tell you this - it felt good in my mouth, with a light bubbly feel and thin and crisp body

O- Being a huge Stone and Dogfish Head fan I really enjoy this IPA up there with them. Great for almost any meal I love drinking it in the sun (we happen to get over 300 days of that a year here) and just as good from the growler weeks later.
