4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: An uber-hoppy floral/fruity Double IPA that is all too easy to drink
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed very fresh. Bottle sent to me by Sherm1016, thanks a lot Todd
The look: Cloudy orange-amber body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Similar to the regular Daisy Cutter, the nose is very bright and shows citrusy and floral hops. Body is full, plenty of toasted malts with a little white sugar (crystal malts?) sensation. When you stop to focus on it you realize that this beer packs a lot of sweetness. But the hops are so dominant, bright and aromatic that the sweetness is really kept in check. Enormously hoppy, very juicy and bright but not all that bitter, the hops here and like a flower juice, fresh oranges, fresh apricots, fresh grapefruits. I liked it just as much, if not better than the regular Daisy Cutter. It drinks almost as easily as the regular Daisy Cutter, which drinks very easy. I think a Daisy Cutters are basically a Surgeon Scissors that failed med school.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orange-yellow color with a white head. I get a ton of fruit in the aroma, namely grapefruit and pineapple but there are some other tropical fruits present. I also get a little bit of bready malt in the aroma.
The flavor is just as good. I get a ton of grapefruit, pine and papaya. Very fruity and tropical smelling. There is a tad bit of biscuit malt in the aroma and the bitterness is low to medium. Very drinkable.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Thanks to Sam. Pours out a golden/straw color topped with a nice off-white head. Aroma covers all hop options citrus, floral, tropical fruit, and pine. WOW Taste is hop domination with lemon zest, grapefruit, pineapple, and a little bread malts. With the name Double Daisy Cutter I was thinking there was going to be a little Daisy action going on here

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a cloudy honey gold with a white head of about 2 fingers that has good retention and lacing.
The aroma is on the lighter side with a light cirtus hop.
The taste is outstanding. Its fresh, crisp, and amazingly drinkable. It starts out kind of sweet orange then finishes with some very smooth hops.
Overall, I was surprised as I wasn’t expecing much. This is an incredible session beer that will be added to my staple.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma:Sweet cotton candy and grapefruit with sugar on top.
Appearance:Gold in color, lots of white head, and pretty bubbles.
Taste:Hugely hoppy! Freshly cut grass, grapefruit, citrus, lemon. There is a lot of sweetness in this beer. These flavors stick around through the midtaste, but all that remains on the aftertaste is harsh bitterness.
Palate:Light to medium body, good carbonation, and a little hop astringency.
Overall:This is an amazingly delicious DIPA. The huge grapefruit hops in this beer really shine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a snifter.
4.5 A: Nearly perfect! Hazed orange brown color. Super thick, creamy off white head with great retention and a good amount of lacing.
4.5 S: This is great too! Incredibly intense flowery hops. Hops also contribute a touch of spiciness, some pine, some sharp pineapple and grapefruit. This is nearly three months old and still hoppy as hell! Malts are fairly neutral with bready yeastiness.
4.0 T: The taste is more balanced than the nose. Moderate bitterness with pine, orange, and spicy hops. Malts are somewhat biscuity, somewhat bready, and earthy like melon rind. The yeast is surprisingly clean. Overall, the taste is an elegant mixture of hops and malts with good balance and well hidden alcohol.
4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be a lot creamier, but it’s incredibly smooth for an unfiltered DIPA.
4.0 D: Good beer. I enjoyed this one a lot. Well balanced DIPAs are just as good as hop bombs and this is a great example of the former.
