Also known as Smokehouse Double Dog Dare
Bigger than either an English or American IPA in both alcohol strength and overall hop level (bittering and finish). Less malty, lower body, less rich and a greater overall hop intensity than an American Barleywine. Not necessarily as high in gravity/alcohol as a barleywine. A showcase for hops. Warning: this ale is 10%+/- alcohol by volume and extremely bitter!
