Draft at the Big Picture Show in Waitsfield. Pours a lovely deep copper with an off-white head that lingers. Aroma is a pungent, mixed spicy hops flora. Flavor rich with citrus high notes, but backed up with a solid caramel on the bottom - but not enough to be sticky. Medium body with soft carbonation. Lovely long, twisting aftertaste that finishes softly and leaves you begging for another sip. This is a gutsy IIPA that takes no prisoners. It’s probably the best beer I’ve had out of the Two Roads Brewery. Different, and bigger, that it’s name-alike Double Sunshine which seems a little shy by comparison. No compromise here I’m happy to say.

Clear amber with little white head. Aroma is pine cone, floral hops, some sweet fruits. Taste is so much pine cone, sourness and hoppy bitterness. More pine cone in the finish, however smooth creamy mouthfeel. Overall ok.

My 400th US beer. Can from a trade with sneakychi, many thanks! Deep cloudy golden-copper color with white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, blueberry. Taste is hoppy, more tropical fruits and sweatsocks, a bit fussle oils, with a nice residual sweetness, caramel, slightly boozy finish. Medium carbonation. Very good.

Can. Golden, offwhite golden cream. Maracuja, citrus, dank notes, very classic. Earthy, tropical fruit, earthy chewiness, restrained, light sweet malt. Good fruity finish, dangerously drinkable.

(can, many thanks to sin4h!) slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy white head. aroma of nettles and herbal hops, slightly resinous, with a touch of watermelon and orange peel. flavour is mostly pale malts, yeast and nettles, with a hint of ethanol, powdered sugar and a light-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Can: The aroma consists of moderate tropical fruits, lighter candied orange, mango, peach, grapefruit, and a hint of dank hops. It pours lightly hazed golden-orange with a large yellow tinted off-white head that takes quite a while to settle to just a thick foam. There is some soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate juicy citrus, tropical fruits, and a touch of pineapple. The finish has moderate grapefruit, citrus/lemon peel, and faint dank hops. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Can given by an awesome beer friend from work. Pour was orange with nice frothy head. Sweet melon, tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. More of that on the palate. Bitterness is mild given the fruity sweetness. No alcohol present. Would be world classed for an IPA, doesn’t pack the character needed to be the best Imperial. But still, worth trying. Tasty. Very tasty.

A 1 pint can canned on 1st April 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger frothy white head that had good retention and left nice lacing. Aroma of lots of fruit with orange, orange rind, grapefruit pith, lemon and pineapple. There’s also some honey and a hint of dank mustiness. Tastes citrusy lemon, lime, orange zest, tangerine and grapefruit bitterness plus tropical mango and peach. Nice light candied toffee and caramel sweetness in the background. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall… Ahh, what a stunning DIPA. I prefer Sip of Sunshine over Heady Topper, but in the end both are really good. Great balance between bitter and sweet and easily ends up as a must buy beer for me.

Clear golden pour with a medium white head...great retention and lacing. Aroma has lots of tropical and stonefruits...juicy. flavor follows suit and adds a nice citrus rindy/spicy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry, rindy/Grassy finish. Lots of hoppy layers...crushable.
