Persimmon colored body was clear and lively, with a three finger thick head. Extra props for the classy caged and corked presentation, with a little informative cardboard foldout tied around the neck. The aroma was rich with pine straw and grapefruit smells from the hops. The taste was citric and quite bitter. There was not a whole lot of malt backbone here, and the sweetness was mostly comprised of simple sugars. Pretty sticky on the palette, and a long aftertaste with a pepper like spiciness. Not a beer to make me go wow, but a solid detour indeed.

Many thanks to Chris! Dark amber colour. Extremely malty sweetish beginning. Nice fresh and intense hops around, sticky pine, hints of caramel. A bit bitter till the end. Too sweet, nice intense hops. Round, nice.

Many thanks to Chris!! Pours a golden brown with a tan head. The smell is green hops, pine, caramel. The taste is dry and bitter with pine, caramel...a bit sweet. Medium in body with nice, fine carbonation. Bit too sweet for my taste.

I really like the way this one is built. I’m digging the big resinous, dank hops with a touch of grapefruit juice behind. Malts are full and rounded with a caramel sweetness but not over-stepping the hops at all - rather it stays at most semi-sweet to balanced, with plenty of hop resin coating the mouth leading to a long piney finish. Clean.

Deep copper. Dank nose of citrus and grapefruit with sweet caramel malt. Flavor is citrus rind bitterNess and more caramel sweetness. Big mouthfeel. Plenty of malt presence. A good, balanced IIPA.

Pretty good DIPA. Pours a slightly cloudy, copper-gold, with medium-sized head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is a bit boozy, with lots of sweetness, some pine and citrus from the hops, smooth, sweet finish. Not a bad example at all...

Thought their regular IPA was pretty good; hoping the DIPA is nice also. Here we go. Sweet, piney, even slightly cheesy aroma; bit sharp for my liking. Flavor is sweet, resinous, and quite onion and catty as well. Ugh. Some good elements here, but it’s too overpowering. Definitely not a fan of IPAs, double or otherwise, with cheesy, onion, catty elements. I’ll stick with their regular IPA.
