12oz bottle. Purchased while travelling. One of my favorite styles of beer though this one didnít quite stack up to some of the better ones in this category. Still quite tasty though.

A nice, highly hopped double IPA. Appearance/palate thin for a double IPA. Alcohol presence is a bit over-the-top, but it is a double IPA, so what do I expect? There are other IPA competitors out there who can top this for flavor, but if I had it on a deserted island I would not turn away from the Double D (or maybe 2 for balance).

20100515 Sampled at PilsnerPeterís 2nd Annual Spring Gathering. Shortbread and citrus, pretty sweet stuff, sticky palate, thick. Sweetness a bit much for me even among the many big stouts of the day. Tropical and citrus hops linger. Coating.

Poured into a pint glass it produced a finger worth of white head that lasted. The body of the brew was a cloudy burned orange in color. The aroma was a little sweet for a DIPA the malts were a little dominant. The hops did show up in there as well but a little subdued for the style. The flavor is following the nose starting off sweet and finishing dry with hop bitterness. It had a medium feel to it in my mouth and good carbonation. Not a bad DIPA but not my favorite. I did finish the bomber by myself with no problem. I looked for a date on the bottle; I think it might be a bit old but no way to tell for sure with out a date

Growler poured into a trappist glass produced an amber body with thick tan head. This is one of the best IPAs Iíve tasted. Smooth with flavors of pineapple and orange with a nice hoppy finish. Very well balanced and very enjoyable.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Pours slightly cloudy orange/yellow with a minimal white head. The aroma is very hoppy, with lots of citrus and orange notes as well as some piney resin. The flavor is lots of pine, but not too much bitterness. Very drinkable, medium mouthfeel.
