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.

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.

This was my favorite beer. Nice fruity aroma with a nice bitter kick however Gate City Hopface has taken them over. Regardless Stoudt’s is my favorite location brewery in the country. Their beer fest is amazing and their restaurant us to die for. Highly recommended. Don’t miss the chance to get a little German culture and fantastic beer!

Hop and malts right away on the aroma. Initial taste is sweetness that builds until the mild bitters overtake it. Left on the palate is a slight bitter, while the malt is dominant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2813) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Cloudy, amber-orange with a cement-colored head and very good lacing. Aroma of pine, mango, hay, stone fruit, red berries, leaf duff, floral hops and fruity malt. Taste of fruity malt, resin, hay, well ripened stone fruit, earthiness, floral hops, mango and more. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization. A very complex imperial IPA and very challenging to describe. Not like any other IPA I've tasted. But, I love complexity, so I'm happy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Albion. Dark orange with smal beige foamy head, light floral hops aroma, low carbonation, sweetish hoppy taste with grassy flavor, smooth texture, longish finish with low bitterness. Interestingly not bitter enough as advertised.

Aroma is a little off putting, but the nice blend of sweet, fruity character blends well with with hint of pine hops at the end. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

Jabah (385) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This is almost like a wine, a bit sweet for a double IPA, but the aftertaste is hoppy to balance it out a bit. Not much carbonation, but that is probably planned to bring out more of the flavor. Pours an orange-dark gold color. Semi-hazy medium texture. Pretty strong alcohol content. Overall a top-notch beer.

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours amber with a white head. Sticky, sweet veggie, funky fruit aroma. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Sweet with irn bru, orange squash, pine, lemon, carmel, candy... Some booze heat... tasty enough but and nicely balanced but too sickly sweet for me on the whole... OK.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Very complex IPA, so much so that it doesn?t really taste like one. Don?t get me wrong there is hop bitterness, mango and other tropical fruit notes. A candied sugar sweetness that melds well with hop and malt profile. Very enjoyable.
