3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Only 2 out of the 4 Double Take beers I have are on this website. So here is the IPA. Nice (almost) 7% alcohol content. Tastes, looks, and smells like a well made IPA. I think I prefer this to the Double Take Pale Ale, the Amber Ale, and the Belgian White.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m very fond of this IPA. It is different though. It is almost sweet, but still pleasantly hoppy.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not impressed. Grassy pine aroma, biscuit heavy and very little hop flavor. 6.49/six pack at the local grocery. “It’s a head snapper”? Hardly…
This is by far the most watered-down “IPA” I’ve had to date. Tried to give this one the benefit of the doubt…(the only saving grace for the money spent is the 6.9% ABV)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Vons: Appeared as a light watered down golden honey liquid and created a thick foam of head. Aroma is faint and has no available smells to be picked up other than some minor floral notes of hops. The drink is bland and hasn’t much of a flavor other than some weak hops and malts barely holding this together to be classified as an IPA style. Wonder how terrible the pale ale will taste?

Simply put, this is not a good IPA. It’s not even a good beer. I’ve been on a tight budget of late and thought I would treat myself $6.99 six-pac. I should’ve stuck with my $3.99 Rolling Rock. It was that bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Six-pack from grocery. Nice dark golden pour with an off-white head. Minimal nose, with hints of citrus and bread. A touch bitter to taste but not much of a traditional IPA "flavor". I was looking for more "hops" to taste and aftertaste. The beer is okay.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium creamy off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is pine, urine, sweat socks, old leather, aluminum foil. Flavor is about the same, artificial and not pleasant. Metallic. Buy a Budweiser before drinking this.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle from Sampler Pack from Safeway Salinas. Nose is a little citrus hops mixed with some stale bread. Clear yellow orange with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is lightly bitter with a light carrot candy sweetness. Not much of an IPA.

12oz bottle 2/23/13 (Dominick’s Grocery)-41° in Shaker-Pours a slightly orangish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of the same with more malt on the back end. This medium bodied brew is not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An average ipa. Really fruity and has a powerful aftertaste. I would probably pass at buying this one again.

In some respects, this beer tastes like miller light with "hop flavor added". That being said, it fits its role relatively well in my opinion, which is that of a bargain IPA that is much more bearable to drink than other cheaper beers.
