Double Thunder FunkDouble Thunder Funk
Notes: Double Thunder Funk is the big, bad sibling of our best selling beer, Thunder Funk. To make it, we took our original thunder funk recipe and made everything bigger: more grain and more hops, resulting in more power and more flavor. Despite clocking in at 9.2% abv, this monster IPA is surprisingly subtle in its strength yet delivers intense hop aroma and flavor.

4.13/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a nearly transparent golden color with a short lived head.

Smells of pine, citrus and apricot. Tastes of pine and citrus. Initially this beer has an intense almost styptic bitter hop finish. This mellows after a few minutes allowing the fruit notes to come forward. The alcohol hides well.

Light body for a DIPA ( which I do appreciate). Low carbonation.

This beer and it's local brewery are happy discoveries for me!

4.09/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 2/24/20. Pours a amber orange, with a finger sticky white head that leaves a bunch of thin webs of lace, with solid retention. 4.25

Smell is tangerine, pine, apricot, and grapefruit. 4

Taste follows old school pine, tangerine, apricot, and a healthy shot of grapefruit in the bold lingering finish. 4

Mouthfeel is big, plenty of life, a tad dry and sticky, and at 9.2% goes down rather easy but if you are only a into haze you may struggle with this one. 4.25

Overall this is very solid, but again if you aren’t into West Coast aggressive DIPAs you may be a little overwhelmed. 4.25

3.9/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a somewhat hazed & effervescent amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Some breadyness, faint citrus.. Citrus gets stronger over time

T: Pineapple, rich breadyness, a touch of caramel & pine as well up front. Biscuitty malt, grapefruit & pine as this warms. Finishes cakey, dry with plenty of grapefruit, a little pineapple & some more pine

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, good balance

A good drinkable DIPA

One of my favorite local DIPAs that can be picked up at most stores around Mass. Great hop flavor, however slightly metallic. Goes down much easier than the 9.2% ABV would suggest.

A very solid DIPA. I might have done it a favor and glassed it rather than drank from can. A bit metallic but not sure if that is can or intentional. Well balanced brew.

No dating on the 12oz can.

Poured an unfiltered amber with almost 3 fingers of dense off-white head. Notes of over ripened citrus, dank earthy tones, amarillo hops and a bit of floral. Taste follows the nose with a little more emphasis on the dank earthiness and leaves a smooth bitterness that tapers off. Medium body that coats the mouth, love it! A great unfiltered DIPA in the west coast style, hitting all the notes it should with a smooth body + aftertaste.

I’m surprised by the low ratings.
Also the current ABV is not correct, it’s 9.2%.
Nice color.Cloudy, copper color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Fruity,floral. earthy aroma.
Medium to heavy body- I like this. Heavier than most beers in the style.
Excellent taste, earthy, citrus, fruity.
Moderate better finish.
Excellent double IPA I was surprised. Definitely worth checking out.
