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.

Bottle: Nice aroma with lots of citrus hops. Pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a white head with some yellow tint. Decent balance of malt and citrus hops, but maybe a little too much malt. Not as hoppy as you would expect from an IIPA but still very good. Thanks to Styles.

Cloudy orange thick white head. Orange, citrusy aroma, with hints of, I donít know, Allspice maybe? Thick, juicy palate. Flaovrs include orange and some other citrus fruits, plus hints of pine, some alcohol flavor, too. Peppery hop finish. Thanks to Doclock for the trade!

First...thanks to zathrus13 for this fine beer. It is one that definately should be allowed to warm a bit. More akin to a strong ale or american style barlewine, which is cool. Definately becomes more complex and layered as it warms. Intitially the dry, astrigent hop flavor dominates but after a bit of heating up the vanilla and cherry tone follow with a tart hoppiness that is very complimenting. The one drawback is the lack of malt complexity or backbone. More tart than sweet, but good nonetheless.

Now this is a heck of an interesting beer. According to Ed and Carol Stoudt theyíve been playing with the recipe and it is up to 95 IBUís. I didnít think it was THAT strong, but it was very pleasant. Very mild aroma.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2005
A very dark orange, almost red. Very liight aroma with just the lightest touch of hops. However the flavor was just full on hops. A decent balance kept it from being too over the top. But still nice and hoppy

I had this beer in two forms at the brewery--tap and cask. The casked version is a clear amber in color--much less orange than the one on tap. The head is thin and bubbly, much looser than the head of the tapped IPA. The aroma is alcoholic and citrust--in the tapped version, the alcohol is masked better, in the aroma and the flavor. Both flavors contained floral notes. Both versions are good, but the tapped version is much more drinkable.

Gold/orange color, with a quickly disappearing white head. Aromas are hops, grapefruit, pine, and some malt. Taste is sweet malt, grapefruit and has a crwamy mouthfeel. Very nice...

For a double IPA, I found this beer to be very lacking in hops. My first impression was of sweetness -- too much malt I guess. The malts overpower the hops in my opinion. The flavor is pleasing nevertheless -- more lika a Belgian than a double IPA. I love the color -- deep amber like grade B maple syryp.

Holy crap...this is beer. Perhaps one of the most flavorful beers iíve ever had. Creamy/frothy head with mild lacing. Body very murky, with obvious suspended particles. Smells very intriguing, notable yeast. Very thick. Big, big big time hops with a very long and delicious finish. A truly spectacular beer that is, of course, very highly recommended.
