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.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Pours a nice clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and hops. Wow, an explosion of flavors: a ton of hops, grapefruit, citrus, pine and sweet fruits like mango and pineapple. Has a nice alcohol presence while somehow remaining non-overpowering. Pleasantly bitter and sweet, perhaps a tad too sweet - but Iím nitpicking here. Great malty body. Very full, round and creamy on the palate with lively carbonation. Good lacing and head retention. Definitely bottle conditioned as there is a ton of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Good stuff.

argo0 (11712) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 12, 2004
(12oz, bottled on 11/10/04) Big beige head atop a cloudy amber body, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, pineapple, pine, grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange, alcohol. Light alcohol burn in the finish. Resinous full body with light acidity. I think this is a good beer, but I guess the sweetness, and perhaps the obvious alcohol, prevent me from being blown away by it as some others are.

12 oz bottle. Yeasty orange in color with a nice tan head. Massively fruity aroma. Lots of fresh hops in the aroma. Malty sweet aroma and flavor. Enjoyable. Busy beer, lots going on. Good.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Extremely hazy light copper color with a slight head but good lace. Aroma is a blend between piney and citrus hops with some fruity esters. Flavor is overwhelming with hops yet it also has a huge backbone of light crystal malts. Very smooth mouthfeel and the alcohol is very well hidden. Awesome double IPA.

Thanks Larry (goldtwins)
Poured a murky blonde/green, largely because I got the bottom of the bottle. The good news is that the hops and yeast were dancing and singing a swet song. The aroma is like herbal orange cookies, strange and buttery. The flavor- mmmm- pine and bubblegum - good combo! The finish even gave off a little ginger. Nothing offensive about the hop bill here - a pleasant surprise (I had no idea this was rated so highly)..

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2010 1/22/10: Draught at TJís: Aroma of hops, pine, and crystal malt. Poured amber/gold in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of hops, pine, crystal malt, and light citrus. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. 10.6%ABV us well hidden. 7/4/7/4/14 = 3.7 12/10/04: 12oz. bottle: Smelled of citrus. Medium to dark brown, murky color. Small white head. Good lacing. Tasted of fruits, like a pack of LifeSavers or something, but also bitter and malty. Too much malt flavor and not enough hoppy bitterness. Did not leave he high and dry. 7/3/6/4/15 = 3.5.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Great beer. The alcohol is so well hidden. Wow. The aroma is fantastic and the taste is like apricot and Graitfruit. Quite good indeed. I had a Westmalle Duppel before this. Nice combination. It is so easy to drink. Really great beer.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Bottle - thanks so much to slob!! Pours like nothing Iíve ever seen before - dark orange-amber and so hazy itís completely opaque even when held to light - almost like a burnt orange sherbert. Creamy tan head diminishes leisurely to a film of bubbles. Aroma is heavily hops - citrus, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is a big yum! This has a big hop blast, but also a caramel and citrusy sweetness from the generous malts. A biting finish gives way to a lingering grapefruit and turpentine (not in a bad way) aftertaste. Full, thick body and creamy carbonation. This is a solid and enjoyable DIPA.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Bottle. Dark hazy orange ale, thin head and thin lace. Starts off with lots of juicy hops - melon and pine - long sweetbitter finish - none of the smoked, burnt roasted peaty malt that is in DFH 90. Knockout.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 Iíve heard and read great things about this Imperial IPA, so I am tasting it after drinking a DFH 90 Minute IPA and Victory Hop Wallop... This beer rocks!... Murky, amber ale with a small, quickly dissipating, white head. Sparce lacing. The aroma is very malty with tons of fruity esters. Peach/apricot, honeydew, pineapple, leather, toffee, cotton candy and a whisper of pine. The flavor is fruity and sweet up front, but after the hops kick in, the backside is all about pine and grass, although a trickle of melted caramel makes itís way through. Full-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. A world class effort on the part of Stoudtís. Still, falls short of Hop Wallop and 90 Minute IPA IMHO.
