Maybe there is too much going on with this one. Not real hoppy a little too fruity for my liking however I may give this another shot plus it is 10% ABV which is important if I am going to spend 16 bones for a six pack. I’ll keep woking on other offerings from Stoudts because people from PA know how to make great beer.
bottled - nice golden color and hoppy Belgiany aroma. Flavor is strong with major hops. ffaoe (1017) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2017
malty aroma. amber and lightly hazy in color with nice long lasting head. taste is well balanced hop notes up front balanced by sweet malt background. PanMarek (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Golden, reddish pour with clouds and a thin white foam. Strong hoppy nose that has a little of everything. The citrus and floral notes seem strongest. The malts are sweet and caramel and manage to pick up the floral aspect of the hops. Very active carbonation, slick texture and slightly sour finish. On the tongue, some resiny notes come out in the hops, but it is still heavily bitter citrus. Almost tangy. Strong alcohol kick.

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.

MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, 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.

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 (565) - Bethesda, Maryland, 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.
