3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Brouwers Café: Orange hued golden, faint haze, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing. Soft citrus and tea leaves. Smooth on the tongue, bitter but not biting. Rich, flavorful, citrusy and hoppy yet not overly bitter. Can’t say this is a big Double IPA, but its a big clean IPA that’s bigger than most. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Soft citrusy finish, a little tea leaves. Very smooth. Makes for a good 1 1/2 IPA, but not sure about a double IPA. It is very smooth tho!

Draught. This is another super aggressive IPA from the hop masters over at double mountain - worth a try.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught at dble mtn - pours out a perfect clear copper color, small white foamy head. Nice lacing. Nose of hop and malt, taste is a well balanced strong hop presence with sweet malt and grapefruit juice. Leaves oily hoppy goodness on tongue. Boozy finish.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
It is tremendously hoppy, pine and resin notes but with a buttery body that mellows it all. Hoppy but with an enjoyable palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at uber. Pale amber, decent head. Aroma is weedy, juicy, and almost cheesy. The armpit description in a previous review sounds about right. Taste is the same - quite juicy, plus grapefruit. Big bitter finish. Full body, soft carbonation, lasting bitter finish. Not particularly sweet. Texture slick and almost flabby. Overall: this flavor combo really didn't work for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewery in Hood River. The aroma is three-day armpit and fumes rising. Clear medium copper color, thin filmy head, and great lace. Strong, packed candyish initial / smooth and roasty mid palate / something phenolic and airplane glue-like, along with rotten dates, near the finish. Medium body and bit sticky. Has Mosaic, Simcoe, and Perle ramped up to 85 IBU. They call it a "Triple Pale Ale." Way way over the top, with a brandy-like character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted at SIBF 2013. Really hazy orange pour. A super hop bomb. Definitely tasty, but maybe a little skunkier than I prefer. It’s a palate wrecker, that’s for sure!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured hazy golden with a moderate white head. Awesome, dank vegetal hopped and citrus juice nose. Same notes came through in the taste with and added grapefruit character. Some sweetness for the higher abv, but quite smooth and balanced since it wasn’t too bitter or too malty. Definitely it the top tier of Double Mountain beers I have had.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Intense hop nose full of citra/simcoe danky and piney hops. Soft malt. With a semisweet finish. Hops seem to fade into the malt flavor and leaves a soft alcohol honey character.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at PIB, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of piney hops, citrus notes, and just enough caramel malts to back. Flavour brings out an uncompromising blast of piney hops, with a touch of citrus, and a dry biscuity malt backbone. Phenomenal flavour profile, with a dry piney dominance. Excellent stuff.
