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 orange with brown tones. Has a warm malt character to the aroma that sits under a plesant hop character. Hops smell a bit sticky and not terribly strong. The lask of strength and hop character in the aroma is not an issue in the flavor. There is a sharp grapefruit hop flavor that fills most of the mouth. It’s bitter, but somwhat creamy. The creamyness seems to be a sweet malt that brings nice balance to the beer. Nice smooth finish with strong hop bitterness lingering and a bit of a sweetness. Thanks to DocLock

guzzler67 (1501) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Copper color with a small white head and good lacing. Piney hop aroma with some citrus. Nicely carbonated, medium-to-full bodied. Resinous, pine hop taste with some sweetness on the side of the tongue. Had this both on tap and in the bottle. Tap was smoother and seemed more balanced, but I preferred the hoppy blast from the bottle.

Bottle pours dull golden, quite cloudy, large off-white foamy head, lovely lacing, with very light carbonation.   Wonderful nose, hop resin and a thick candyish like floral flavor.   Smells very fresh, and very tasty.   Flavor is quite sweet, fresh hops are present and not bitter at all.   Big bodied, slightly viscous mouthfeel adds to the enjoyment.   Finishes smooth, very smooth for a 10%+ beer.   Lingering floral and hop notes, a bit more assertive than in the front.   Still remains fairly sweet, slightly malty.   I like my IIPAs, and this is most definitely one of my favorites.   Smooth overall, wonderful aroma and flavor.   I need more of this!   Thanks goes out to TAR for this one!

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Gold, with big offwhite head. Aroma of hops, gee whiz; pine, citrus, ganja, newly mown hay (Phosgene! On with your gas masks!.) Flavor of hops, with grass clippings replacing the hay/phosgene and a bit of malt, otherwise still pine, citrus, and ganja. Medium-light body. Oddly not all that bitter, although because of the alcohol content I’m drinking it at room temp. Colder it would probably be far more bitter. The alcohol is extremely well hidden.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2005
light tan thin head that goes quickly. murky amber color with lots of micro-particles. nice soft mellow grapefruit nose, a little musty! snappy carbonation, sweet malt and salty hop flavor. not sticky or cloying like other IIPAs. mouthfeel is light, but also a little creamy. finish is more bitter, like dry grapefruit rind. alcohol is extremely well hidden in nose and flavor, heats up a bit upon warming.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2005
Grapefruit, perfumey lavender, damp earth, icing sugar, basil and honey in the musky aroma. Hazy orange-blonde with shy off-white head that covers and lasts. Very sweet maltiness with strong orange, grapefruit, earthy hop flavour and fair bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation and a fairly sticky texture. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, Olivier and Rastacouere. Thanks, hopscotch!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bronze color with light head & lacing. The nose is very earthy with grapefruit and a very fresh hop smells. Taste is very full bodied and sweet with moderate hop bitterness and flavor contributing a strawberry melon flavor pie flavor. Finishes smooth, no trace of the staggering ABV. Awesome beer! I hardly even noticed drinking it until later when I was a little stumbling! Thanks DocLock!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Gold orange with no real head present. Some spots of lace are here and there. Aroma contains plenty of fresh hops. Ranging from spicy/peppery to citrusy to bitter. Grassy and earthy hops as well. Deep caramel backs the hops nicely. Just a hint of brown sugar. The malts are a lot bolder in the flavor and the hop bitterness shows through with some bitter orange and lots of grapefruit. There is a bubblegum about as well. The bitterness creates a strong spice presence. Pretty big body that hides the alcohol well. Thought it does come through at the end of the beer by warming up a little. Finishes fairly bitter with a good malt backing.
