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.

Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is alcoholic, with notes of peaches and caramel, while the flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, leading to a dry hoppy end.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a handsome, creamy head. Lightly perfumy, floral aroma. Sweetish malty - actually distinctly sweet. Completely dominated by aroma hops, but not overly bitter. A very accessible IIPA. 271105

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange big white creamy head, lacing. Fruity nose. Fruity, hoppy and alcohol in flavour. Hoppy fruit in aftertaste. The IPA works, and the alcohol suits the flavour completeness pretty well.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2005
Bottled. Hazy amber, small head. Peach aroma. Sweet and very malty with shampoo-like fruitiness and bitterness. Extremely hoppy - like concentrated hop juice wiyh thick,oily mouthfeel. The finish is salty with huge bitterness. The beer is all about hop flavour. Alcohol and sweetness are ramped up in an attempt to balance it out, which is quite succesful. I still feel that I’m getting a bit tired of the American trend to throw in all the hops possible and then try to balance it, rather then starting from the other end - the idea to make a good beer and use as much hops as that requires.

Hazy amber beer. Decent frothy white head. Light hops on the nose. Soft palate, a little dry. Quite a sweet IPA. A little caramel malt gives way to sweetish marmalade orange and a trace of pineapple. Quite a bit of aniseed alcohol in the soft finish. Nice.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
Amber color. It’s the kind of sweetish Pale Ale, with some hopping but not particularly aromatic. Very simple.

Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Cloudy orange/copper colour with lasting beige head. US strong IPA typical nose. Lots of hops, grapefruit and some chocolate limes. Good in mouth with full velvety feel. Very intense flavours but some softness. The finish is a bit one dimensional, but overall a pleasing US strong IPA
