Nice head and nice lacing. Smells like your run-of-the-mill IPA. Hoppy but not bitter. Flavor is almost "light" IPA with 1/2 lager, 1/2 IPA. Pine flavor and scent. Slightly better than average.

A nice hoppy finishing IPA! Nice mouthfeel and a malty initial taste.

Poured from bottle to tulip. Liquid gold and crystal clear. Aggressive pour yields three fingers of fizzy head that quickly dissolves into a small, solid cap of foam. Rings of spotty lacing line the sides. Aroma is juicy, honey sweet, and just a touch of booze. Flavor is same with a bit of resin and pine bite. Kinda sorta a DIPA, but if my beloved Two Hearted is an IPA, this is an IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look - Golden with minimal white head

Smell -nice aroma...citrus and hops

Taste - follows the smell...a little alcohol burn in the aftertaste

Feel - light and not as much chew as most DIPA, but smooth...almost an in betweener

Overall - as a south central PA boy, Troeg Perpetual and Nugget Nectar are 2 of my favorites for the price

A murky golden amber with a strong piney scent. Taste is on the piney/resiny side with slight citrus hint. For a DIPA, the mouthfeel is a bit thin but this simply makes it pleasant and drinkable. Seems like more of an IPA than a double but this is a very solid beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Golden color, minimal head, lace disappears. Sharp citrus and tropical fruit, from the hops,and sweet malt aroma. Big citric hops taste. Piney feel and resin finish. The malts are also very present as they provide a sweet contrast. Feel wise, I feel like I can't rate this one as high. The balance between bitter and sweet was uneven; cloying at times and bitter at others. the body felt thin for a double ipa and the carbonation was too soft.
