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 from preimer. Pours golden amber hue with slight off white head, gobs of lacing. Nose of tropical fruit and pine. Taste is more of the same with a bit of light caramel. Bitterness is cutting but not overwhelming. Ohh boy!!

12oz bottle. Over a year old. Was told it was better as a year old barleywine than a fresh barleywine. And they’re right. Bitter English barleywine. Caramel malts. Slight booze. Not bad.

hfmejias (818) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 14, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber, huge off white head, nice lacing all over the glass. Hoppy aroma, some malts, fruits and some booze. Taste starts bready and malty, hoppy and fruity towards the end; a bit boozy too. Very enjoyable and quite drinkable.

Deep cloudy orange color, head isn’t there but the lace is all over the glass. Aroma is hop, wheat, dark fruit, yeast, alcohol. The fruits come flying out of the wine glass I’m drinking this out of. Excellent. Flavor is hop, roasted malt, stone fruits, lime, vegetables, oak, pine, spice. I feel the warmth from the ABV after only three sips. Delightful.

Transfer from BA review on 9-13-12 - Poured from bottle into snifter Appearance – Pours a beautiful vibrant orange color with a small white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is sweet and delicious. It’s sweetness is largest in a tangerine smell, but has other sweet smells of caramel, banana, and some tropical fruits. Along with the sweet is a nice bready aroma and some notes of a yeasty nature. Overall it is a wonderful smell. Taste – The taste begins of a big bready and malty flavor with hints of a the tropical fruit and tangerine are present. The bready and malty flavors create a base for the brew and remain rather constant throughout, but the fruit sweetness varies through the taste. The fruit initially starts light, grows stronger toward the middle, and then fades again toward the end. During the sweet flavor transitions the hop flavors transition as well. In the beginning there is a light citrus hop. More toward the middle of the taste more grapefruit and lemon citrus come to the tongue. In the end, the hop flavors increase again as some earthy hops join the mix. The combination of the malty, hoppy and light fruit are joined by a medium alcohol presence to leave a bitter hop and light tingling warmth on the tongue. Mouthfeel – At 10 % abv the body of the beer is medium with a carbonation level that is average. Overall –This beer has a very nice taste, smell and look. It’s pretty good stuff and well worth a try.

Steverus0 (198) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Radiantly floral on the nose with sweetness behind it. Pours a hazy caramel with diminishing and long lacing head. When this brew bursts on the palate it is all hops at first with varied but all floral hop character and sweetness from the well balanced malts. Finishes with a boozy burn and a clean palate. Whoa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle given to my buddy Jeremy into a pint glass a nice honey orange color with a lightest beige head. Aroma is upfront sweet almost like honey. A touch of grassiness. Flavor really sweet which didn’t balance with the hops as well as other DIPA (and DIPAs are my jam so I have had quite a few) Don’t get me wrong this is well above average DIPA but it lacks the quality finish of a hops finish that better DIPAs have within their profile. Won’t run out & buy but not completely dissed by this brew.
