Appearance was a striking copper color with slightly over a finger of head that dissipated rather quickly. The nose had notes of pine and hops. There is a solid malt profile to this offering and it is followed by a relatively potent dose of hops bitterness on the finish.

This is a DIPA in the style of DFH 90, but it is just not in the same league. It is solid, but unremarkable.

Serving type: on-tap

I love IPAs and have tried two for Stoudts. The hoppier the better as far as I am concerned. I am definitely not a professional when it comes to these things but I know what I like.

The Big Nasty is one of the best IPAs I have ever had. But be careful before you order the third glass! I liked the taste so much that I did not keep track of the amount of alcohol intake....

Overall, I loved it!

750 ml corked & caged bottle, served into a Hill Farmstead stemware glass.

A: No pop on the cork. Deep burgundy colored body with almost no head as the pour started but eventually filled up into a frothy, bubbly two finger head in the glass. Big sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Piney hops, faint citrus, darker malts, touches of floral notes too.

T: A bit sweet at first but then quickly (and nicely) balanced by some bitter, earthy hops. The profile here is certainly in the East Coast IPA realm, with plenty of malt for a solid backbone.

M: Nice and creamy, quite smooth on the palate. A bit of stickiness in the mouth.

This was a really nice showcasing of a big, hopped up East Coast Double IPA. It doesn't have that bright citrus profile my palate tends to crave but this certainly kept me interested throughout the bottle.
