2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very bready and the hops were a bit underwhelming. It tasted like the hops were stale or not covering the full palate of flavors necessary from a double IPA.

"a surprise on tap at the Pike pub. not a letdown, but less focused and not as good or as well balanced as their regular IPA. the body was a little bigger and juicier, and the flavor a little more bitter and sweet. not the best, but not bad at all."

Draught (as Doubble Hopulus) @ The Pike Brewing Co, Seattle, WA
Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, fruits, citrus and herbal notes. Taste is sweet, malty and herbal with some citrus and grapefruit. Finish is sweet and caramely with some bitterness. A bit too sweet and malty for my taste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy light amber color with small head. Sweet caramel aroma, some toffee, mild hop fruitiness, olive oil. Lean mouthfeel, with just a moderate level of sweetness; strong caramel flavor with a toffee accent; powerful bitterness; the hops are very resiny, piney, and also with a strong bitter orange character.
Old school; pleasant because not sticky; among DIPAs, a quaffable one.
