Pours golden yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet pineapple citrus. The flavor is a nice deep hop tea flavor and a nice malty. Kind of resiny. Really solid. Nice bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours crystal clear amber with a large lasting head and nice lacing.
Nose shows lots of resin and pine along with a load of crystal malt and some cookie-dough character.
Flavours are completely dominated by grass and resinous, piny hops. A full on assault of pine really. Not much noticeable malt, the alcohol provides a kick though.
Body seems a bit weak.
Not much complexity, just solid pine, but nice nonetheless.

bottled. Clear golden ale, crystal & crisp. Aromas of resinous hop buds. Taste is sweet then harsh, but always bitter. Muscadine sweet? Great looking IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at White Horse Parsons Green post GBBF. Rather a decent IPA, if a tad over carbonated. Gold colour. Lots of PNW hops on aroma. Bit harsh, burnt toast. Not as impressive in the mouth as on the nose.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colour... golden with a thick white head. Nose...smells like a fresh hop rub! Palate... offrered more on the nose than the palate but generally a nicely balanced, moderately hoppy ale. Hard to imagine that this is actually dubbed a "double" IPA.
