COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stoudt's Double IPA is a strong, full-bodied ale with an intense hop character and deep golden color. This unusual brew is characteristic of the newly recognized style of extremely hoppy and malty ales of American origin. The Double IPA is our strongest beer with an alcohol of over 10% abv and bitterness of more than 75 IBU's. Multiple kettle hop additions and generous dry hopping contribute to the powerful yet smooth and fragrant hop character of this beer. 10% abv.

Pours golden amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is tropical mango-apricot and some light malts. Taste is sweet tropical flavors with a blast of pine and a bitter finish. This is a powerfully flavored DIPA!5

keanex (1401) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is slightly hazy with an amber hue, the creamy head is light tan and has great retention.
Aroma: The aroma is caramel and bright orange, perhaps peach too.
Taste: Very nicely balanced with only a slight hint of alcohol on the finish. Big malty body is balanced by orange and peach hop flavor and a light bitterness.
Palate: Medium body bordering on thick with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is a really good IIPA that I’ve been passing up for a while. I won’t any more.

Dr_Fellini (373) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light amber orange color with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is a bit off-putting, almost soapy/musty, with a slight hint of citrusy hops. Flavor more than makes up for it though. Well balanced citrusy hop bitterness with a light malt and fruity sweetness. Light bitterness and heavy fruity sweetness linger in finish. Medium creamy body. I like drinking this, but if it weren’t for the aroma, I would have rated this beer much higher.

GSB Draught: Great hoppy sloppy big beer. Tastes like a mouthfull of malty fresh cut dewy grass.

rougeau13 (1977) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Cloudy golden amber with an off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, citrus, grass, and tropical fruit. It tastes like it’s full of raisins and toffee; very malt forward and mildly bitter. Medium-full bodied and smooth. The alcohol is well integrated. Good, just not entirely my style.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2013
translucent gold with a foamy beige head.full body, but not too creamy or sticky. medium carbonation.

aroma: metallic stoney minerality, grassy hop bitterness, pale and caramel or aromatic malt, ans a slight citrus note.

taste: grassy hop bitterness, malt sweetness, bright citrus hops, and metallic stoney minerality.

i would prefer a softer cleaner water profile, to let more of the malt and late-hop character come through.
