2L growler obtained at the brewery then shared with science friends a few days later at a conference in Boston. Funny that the description here calls it a double IPA, but at the brewery they called it a double Pale Ale. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Beautifully hoppy nose, fantastic citrus and pine taste. I could easily have enjoyed the entire growler myself!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from a swingtop bottle a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, hops and malt. Medium body with a strong pithy grapefruit character and flavors of floral hops and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering zesty citrus hops aftertaste. Very good IPA all around.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Golden peach. Unfiltered and cloudy. Aroma is good and fruity - grapefruit. Taste is lovely fruit, body and solid bitterness on finish. Overall, great double - prefer to both the Double Citra and Society and Solitude. Strongly reminiscent of Pliny the Elder.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark yellow with an off-white head. The aroma is perfect in a classic way - bright citrus (oranges and grapefruits), pine, pineapple juice, starfruit, mango and white flowers. One of the cleanest IPA aromas ever. Tight and wonderful malt nose with ckrackers, light straw and a touch of white bread. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium to heavily bitter (very clean bitterness) and tiny acidic with notes of citrus, topical fruits, pine, flowers, grass, crackers and light bread. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth with a light to medium carbonation. Grapefruity and clean finisg. Medium bodied.
