Had in 500ml bottle. Pours a hazy bright yellow-oj, white fizzy sticky head. Nose is in short hoppy. resinous, piney, citrus peels, sweet candy malt. Solid hop backing throughout but this is to be expected. Not an overpowering double, definitely have had stronger. Good drinking here though.

It’s easy to grin, when your ship come in,
And you’ve got the stock market beat,
But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile,
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.

bottle - Pours hazy copper with a one finger head. It has a hop led aroma with citrus and resin. The hop forward flavor is citrusy and supported by a solid, sweet malt body. To me it doesn’t stand out for the style, but it’s pretty good. Bottled on 4/23/14 and consumed yesterday and while most of the intervening time was spent in the fridge, I’d still recommend drinking this one sooner. I suspect the hops aren’t as intense as they’d have been a few months back.

Hazed chalky golden color with soft, sudsy white head. Dry hopped aroma. Very dry in flavor with a pleasant earthy hop dominance. Quite good.

500 ml bottle from my Utah Santa shared with the group. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have resiny and spicy hops, some citrus, sweet caramel malt, lightly toasted, good flavor, moderate bitterness, some grassy notes, not a crazy hop bomb DIPA, but a more balanced version.

Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer and exceeded my expectations.
