Draft at the Big Picture Show in Waitsfield. Pours a lovely deep copper with an off-white head that lingers. Aroma is a pungent, mixed spicy hops flora. Flavor rich with citrus high notes, but backed up with a solid caramel on the bottom - but not enough to be sticky. Medium body with soft carbonation. Lovely long, twisting aftertaste that finishes softly and leaves you begging for another sip. This is a gutsy IIPA that takes no prisoners. It’s probably the best beer I’ve had out of the Two Roads Brewery. Different, and bigger, that it’s name-alike Double Sunshine which seems a little shy by comparison. No compromise here I’m happy to say.

Alpha10 (707) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
2017/03/26 - Pours a clear, medium gold colour with a soapy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is very fruity; grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, guava, light bready malt, onion, a hint of pine and floral hops. Taste follows nose with tons of fruit. Lots of tangerine, grapefruit and citrus rind. A light caramel backbone with hints of tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, etc...) more onion, light resin and floral/herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with soft carbonation and a citrusy, medium bitter, drying finish. Very crisp, refreshing and fruity. Hides the ABV surprisingly well. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got in a BIF from Roguer. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 2/7/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/fruity hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with fantastic malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from lingering bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Touch of rind near the end of the glass. Alcohol is well hidden with a mild warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible DIPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced bitterness. Super dank/juicy hops with balanced malt sweetness; with just enough dryness to not be overly sweet or astringent on hops. A highly enjoyable offering.

Heard a lot about this one before trying it so was excited to see singles on sale at a local liquor store even though they were way overpriced. Anyway, the actual beer itself is pretty great though not quite a mind blower like you may be lead to believe. The aroma is very nice, strong and seductive with delicious hoppy zest. It pours a slinky gold cloud. Tastewise, it’s got some pretty round lupilicious hop action going on that just slithers its way into your tum tum. This is a very good beer, one of the best really, but in a battle of VT’s biggest and baddest, I gotta go strong on the side of Headdy Topper/Focal Banger in the great VT IPA head to head. It is certainly a sip of sunshine, but it’s not a sip of the best of the best. BTW- "Best of the Best" is a movie on Crackle right now, starring Eric Roberts.

growler6 (146) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Pineapple and lemon aromas are in my face before the first sip. Moderately dank, piney, resinous. Slightly oily texture but it is brief. Bitterness is spot on and lingers in the back of my throat-yes! Not enough malt for my taste. If it had a bit more of caramel presence I would rate this even higher. Still ,one the better DIPAs I’ve had.

halfonit (1343) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of hops, grass, grapefruit, earthiness, weeds, and hay. Heavier palate with a little carbonation. Flavor is of hops, grass, grapefruit, citrus, leaves, and some earthiness. Nicely balanced. Leaves a fresh (and dry) grapefruit hop finish. Good stuff. Very similar to Maine’s Lunch Box.

Keg at The Farmhouse, Burlington. Hazy golden, small head. Huge pineapple and passionfruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Papaya and resin, syrup and metal. Edgy and rough. Raw aluminium finish. Did somebody tell these guys that hops is a spice, and that you also need to brew a beer? This beer is like a hippo in a fancy dress.

Great beer. Hints if tropics fruit come through clean and the a crisp bitterness comes in. Tropical notes are mango, touch of grapefruit, orange hits the front of your tongue. Then the most crisp bitter flavor takes it from there. Exceptionally clean. Smooth and you don't know it's 8%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Jabic. Pours golden colored with a nice fluffy off-white head. There’s lots of pineapple, orange, and overall tropical fruity hoppy goodness here. This is scary drinkable for 8% as the glass empties quickly. Sweetened a touch by a light malty base that is nicely kept in check. Crisp hop bitterness and a touch of grass sneaks in there. I love how this drinks rather light, and refreshing for the abv, and never gets sticky or too thick. Right up my ally. Thanks Jim!
