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.

Find it hard to believe I would hate this as much as I did. I pray I just got a skunky bottle. But man did this suck. Perhaps the worst thing I ever put in my mouth. I would give another shot as I assume I got a bad batch. Hope so anyway ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (198) - 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 (2232) - Greater London, ENGLAND - 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 (1539) - 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.

An interesting aroma of fruit, malt and a hint of hops. Great looking beer with a medium white well laced head, cloudy caramel color. Sweet malt and fruit taste with a medium body and a dry malt finish.

Poured from a bottle. Murky golden color, full frothy white head. Fruity malt and hops aroma. Medium body with a sweet fruity hops flavor and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zizzybalubba (1604) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2015
12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC (9.43% ABV according to the label). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of lemon, tangerine, and wet grass. Taste is good with tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, and oranges) upfront and a slightly sweet malt profile to balance. Lacks any real hop bitterness that I would normally find in an IPA/DIPA as the hop profile is just fruity. Much better than I remember from when I first had this years ago but still this would not be my go-to DIPA.

rondphoto (2784) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 3, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Cloudy dark amber, frothy off-white 1" head, streamers of lace. Taste is strong sweet malt in a brew that has the audacity to smash it with equally strong citrus hops. The hops aren’t up to the assignment, as the malt re-takes the brew in a long, slow, finish. A really big brew that isn’t as good as it pretends to be. A solid brew, but not a top dog.

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.
