On tap left over from the Legendary Duckworth's Stone Total Tap Takeover in October 2010. Poured into a proper pint glass for the low price of I do believe $6. I have had this before and it has been good, but this time it simply blew me away.

A. Simply gorgeous - this is sparkling, crystal clear and effervescent bubbly Heaven-cobblestone gold. A large, dense, tight and uniform crown sits arrogantly atop, knowing it's just that good looking. The lace descends in strata down the glass as you sip - positively lovely. Times like this I wish I could attach a picture. It hardly gets any better. Perfect score.

S. Dank green hops, bright and lively, quite grapefruit forward but with the addition of two other hops (which, I wonder?) the complexity is turned up a few more notches. Plentiful sweet Amarillo is here, and the whole endeavor is fruity with enough malt sweetness to be sun-kissed and succulent. Excellent.

T. Big resiny hop upfront, there's that fruity, almost peachy Amarillo hop again, and the bitterness is getting close to distracting when the malt sweetness asserts itself and saves the day! The hop flavor is all over the place and gets a bit woolly, but never outstays its welcome. There's lots of green, grapefruit, slight vegetation (grass), and it's all quite bitter and citric. Grease cutting, and just the thing to go with my jalapeño bacon cheeseburger! Delightful.

M / D. Perfection for quaffing - soft body, sprightly carbonation, fine, and goes down very easily, tickling your palate with visions of fields of hop bines and scantily clad brunettes harvesting therein. Ok, I made that last bit up, but still.

Stone Double Dry Hopped IPA is a sheer delight to drink and is highly recommended - it has been a very long time since I've had an IPA I enjoyed this much. Huge thanks to Stone and Duckworth's for this memorable gem.
