Very good although more of a regular IPA than double. Poured at a good temperature with a medium size, cream color, foamy, thick head that settled after a bit and a bit of lace. Color is a clear amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a nice blend of hop, caramel malt, citrus and a little resin. Flavor's like nose with all of the characteristics enhanced and bolder. Very good balance between tang, bitter, and sweet. Body/carbonation are just right. Finish is like flavor except the resin gets stronger and turns a little bad. Still, I really like this beer and wish I could get more.

Clear golden copper. Dense beige frothy head. Big tangled sheets of lace.

Super floral and citrus. herbal resins. sweet pale malt lingers in the background.

Rush of juicy citrus, bitter grapefruit, pine, floral, spicy resins. Toasty, light caramel, touch of booze. Big ol bitterness.

Medium body. sticky and drying. slow and low carbonation. just enough. some creaminess to the body. some acidity.

Drinkability is great for abv. there is a little kick. Plenty of hops make this one a real Pass Whooper.

From bottle ordered on-line.
Poured in a Belgian Scotch Silly glass.
Copper color with big head.
Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malts.
Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel.
Flavors of roasted malts, grassy and piney hops, funky fruit rind, white grapefruit, Italian herbs...let me give this 5 minutes...
OK...head remains with mixed size bubbles...aroma is still there, with a touch of oxidation/wet cardboard. Flavors are big and bold, with a touch of funky melon fruit, biting grassy and pine sap bitterness, alcohol, mango rind. Humm...might well be better at the brewery, but in this form at this time it's bitter and rough, certainly not for the timid but beyond that, for the double IPA fan, it's not compelling.

Poured chilled into a tulip.

Pours a nice bronze color with about half an inch of beige head that quickly recedes leaving a light surface layer with moderate lacing.

Aromas of carmelized sugars, candied citrus peel and pine.

Taste follows through the aromas with really nothing coming to the front. A lingering, bitter aftertaste that I found a bit cloying.

Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall a fair DIPA, but not one of my faves.
