Pleasant floral hop aroma. Orange amber color, a bit hazy. Not much head. Bitter but balanced with the malt. There’s just a touch of chocolate flavor in the finish that works nicely. The use of dark malt and the color are out of range for a DIPA, but the beer never actually claims to be a DIPA, it may be better suited for the "American strong ale" category on ratebeer. Anyways I think its a pretty solid big beer for the price.
Draft at the source. Pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Mostly malt on the nose. Flavors add some bitter hops, caramel, toffee. Long warming finish, noticeable alcohol. naivepegasus (388) - USA - MAY 9, 2017
Pours a cloudy orange amber with about two fingers of slowly dissipating foamy off-white head. Brown sugar and raisin notes. Has a sweet brown sugary vibe that fades into a hoppiness. Mouthfeel is only okay but I dig the flavor. LetsGoState (886) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2017
Appearance is cloudy amber with medium white head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is a mix of spices, alcohol and bitter hops. Overall not bad, not great. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma is full of malt and some caramel. The taste matches the aroma with the addition of some fruit flavorings. JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Lightly hazed amber colored liquid. Moderate sized beige head. Decent lace. Nuts, citrus peels and caramel in the aromas. Alcohol is quite evident from the first sip sending a quiver through the body. Flavors of berries, orange peels and toasted malt. Actually the finish is quite malt and enjoyable. A bit unbalance in other areas. 10/11

Poured from bottle.
Aroma of malt.
Appearance is cloudy gold. Looks frozen.
Tasting pine resin, loads of malt, floral hops, brown sugar, alcohol.
Palate is heavy and slightly metallic.
Overall, this one did not appeal to me. And what the heck is "double pale ale"? radagast83 (8193) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2016
