I don't normally drink IPA's let alone Double IPA's but I found this very drinkable. To me this did not seem that much stronger than a regular IPA, even weighing in at 8.3% ABV. Not as hoppy as I would have imagined, more complex citrus, floral taste, maybe because they combined 3 types of malts and 4 varities of hops, helped smooth it out. Nice and drinkable.
