Great hoppy aroma but something is amiss in the taste. Not liking the finish. Tasted at the A6P.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Samuel Adams Double Agent IPL has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, orange-golden appearance, streaming bubbles, and a lot of thick lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is sharp- strong, citrusy hop oil and some sweet bread. Taste is of sweet bread, strong hop oil, and a bit of citrus juice. It is pleasantly bitter. The mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Adams Double Agent IPL finishes crisp, refreshing, dry, and drinkable. Another winner from Boston Beer Company, this one scores high marks. RJT

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a clear orange type color with a medium frofthy white to off white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and earth; some citrus. Flavor had a more bready presence. Lager like backbone, gives way to a piney/earthy hop taste that finishes rather muted and subdued. If this is a pale lager, obviously a good one.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear light orange pour with a big foamy white head. Citrus and floral nose with a bit of lager yeast. Taste brings some pine into the mix - easy drinking, flavorful, and a crisp clean finish. Really well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mari’s. I was nervous about this one but it sure didn’t disappoint. Pours clear copper with a small off white head and some carbonation. The aroma is pretty fragrant with some big pine, floral notes, and then some of that bready lager. The taste has a nice hop bite followed by some citrus balance.. with a dry finish. This guy is pretty wild and the best lager i’ve ever had.. cool concept.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of orange, citrusy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready and caramel malt some cotton candy fill the moth. Finish is long IPA like. There is some mismatch of flavors but, on the whole, it is good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear, light, orangey-golden with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up fresh pine, black pepper, and citrus hoppage over sweet caramel and bready notes.. fresh and quite nice. The flavor found bitter pine resin and grapefruit throughout, with caramel and lesser fruit supporting.. bitter, refreshing finish. Light-medium bodied, bitter, and engaging on the palate.. great stuff overall!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well this certainly wasn’t that hoppy but the beer itself was okay. Light and a bit crisp. It was good but not nearly as good as it seems to be rated.
