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.

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.

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.

Une bière dorée ou orangée, c’est selon. Une dentelle laissée par une tête plutôt fondante. Au nez, le bouquet houblonné est intéressant et surprenant. Je sens des fleurs et des aromates. Il y a aussi des notes d’agrumes, des aiguilles de pin et quelque chose de bien exotique. Le profil malté n’est ni trop doux ni trop rude : quelque chose comme un ovni toasté. Le goût est très intense. Du pamplemousse et des citrons bien verts se mêlent à un alcool poivré et à des fleurs sauvages. Les céréales maltées sont dans les derniers retranchements. Le corps est moyennement rond et m’apparaît bien touché par les bulles. La texture est franchement huileuse et très plaisante pour les papilles. La finale est pleine et intense de pamplemousse, de résine et d’alcool. Une DIPA marquée par la robustesse qui reste bien facile à boire.

NikkTwist (1602) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Tulip. Hazy amber pour with a large fizzy/foamy white head. Lots of lace. Feels more like a Barleywine with lots of tropical fruit notes. Piney pineapple. Mango pits. Honey tangerine peels. Fresh oak. Varnish. Sugarcane. Sticky amber fruit. Decent palate. Not bad at all. The most unusual, and maybe the best, to come out of Stoudts.

Nice grassy hops, light mango. Cloudy orange, offwhite lacing head. Mellow well balanced fruity. Fullbodied smooth, very drinkable & dangerous

drsordr (1051) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle pour clear yellow with orange hue. Nose slightly fruity hop, oranges, and malt. Taste of grapefruit bitterness, followed by astringency and some alcohol heat. Mid palate sweetness and a long bitter finish, but a high in the palate bitter, not the pleasing bitterness of most DIPA

ryanscourt (744) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2013
Well balanced and very drinkable despite the big 10.0% ABV. I like citrus DIPAs more than big strong alpha hops and wood/pine characteristics. This one has a little bit of both and is fairly nice. Liked it, not up there with great DIPAS, solid starter on the B team though.

12 oz bottle. Pours bright amber yellow in colour, very little head. Warming mouth feel not as hoppy as one would expect!

Bottle. Light cloudy amber color. Good head. Unique initial aroma. Very unique taste; not my favorite. Light on palate for a double IPA.

This is a pretty good iipa that could be great if it wasn’t so strong. The hops and maltiness in this ipa are balanced pretty well as far as flavor, but there is so much alcohol in it that it is kind of ruined. It’s really difficult to brew beers over 9% abv that won’t have a strong alcohol bite. If I have a good double ipa, I’ll drink it myself because they are still relatively easy to drink. Whenever I drink one of these, I find myself splitting a bottle with someone else.
