Clearly one of the best beers for the bang. Also clearly better on draught. If you must drink from the bottle, be sure to pour into a snifter or other similar large-rimmed glass to get the full-on effect. This continues to be one of the brewery’s best sellers. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 17, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - a nice amber/copper color with a around a 1/2 inch head which persisted upon pouring.
Smell - Initially hit with citrus hop followed shortly by piney which then overwhelms the nose.
Taste - A little more subtle then would be expected in hop flavor then would be expected for the strength of the brew, but a nice balance of hop and malt makes it easy drinking.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation again lends to easy drinkable. The body is rather medium in demeanor - thick enough to slow you down for the high abv.
Overall - A good brew worth the experience, although a more I would typically choose an IPA with a bit more hoppiness to match the high abv of the beer. Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2013
On the 5th Day of Christmas 2013...Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus, resin and caramel. Taste is bitter with a sweet malty background. Medium bodied, sticky yet smooth. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The beer pours great with a nice amber color to it, a one finger off white head, and decent lacing on the glass. The smell is decent with the beer had a resin, piney nose. The beer tastes decent with a great smooth piney flavor followed by a smooth mild malty taste. The mouthfeel is great with a nice dry, mildly bitterness and the beer is well carbonated. Overall, a decent Double IPA with a nice smooth blend to it, recommended. Nejhleader (1559) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Nice citrus hip aroma. Decent thick body. Has a nice bitter bit of pine hop taste. Good bitter hop aftertaste.

The Double D is softly carbonated. The color is of a clear medium amber with a thin, foamy, and sticky head that hugs my glass. The aroma is of sweet carmel malts, floral hops, weak pine, and citrus notes. As for the flavor its malty, sweet, medium bitterness, and of citrus bittering hops. The finish is balanced and leaves a good mouth feel with a nice bitter bite at the end. For the style my palate was not tarnished as much as it could have been. Overall this beverage was enjoyable. joet (2606) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Tan golden light off white foam. Resinous surface. Dissipating head. Very rich malt flavors sweetness light caramel light cocoa. Substantial bitterness. Thin feel. Reminiscent of aged bigfoot. Will try again. mike67 (1197) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours orange with a short lived white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade, pale malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy, herbal hops, caramel malt, and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and very hoppy. Very nice DIPA. Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Deep amber pour. Very clear with a small tan head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Super smooth, dry, bitter, Very west coast. Excellent brew. Got a bottle from the wholesale rep at PAFlavorfest in Harrisburg. allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Otto's.
Deep copper pour with a fine light tan head. Good lacing.
Nose is resin, pine, caramel.
Lots of toffee malt balanced by a nice, biting hop undercurrent. Citrusy and fresh.
Medium full mouthfeel. Very satisfying. A nice level of carbonation to knock down the alcohol and malt sweetness.
Very enjoyable. Nicely balanced for a DIPA. It doesn't have that tooth enamel dissolving character that so many of them do.
