Duck Foot Duckzilla Double White IPADuck Foot Duckzilla Double White IPA
Notes: A hybrid of a White Ale and West Coast IPA and super-sized for your drinking pleasure. This Double IPA is brewed with Wheat to give it a pale white color and a slight sweetness in the finish. At its core this is a hop forward beer, bitter and heavily dry-hopped with a combination of Centennial, Cascade, and Simcoe hops. This blend of hops imparts notes of Spice, Citrus, and Pine in the aroma. A deceivingly drinkable beer despite its high alcohol content.

$ 6.99 (Including shipping)/16 oz can ($ 0.437/oz). Received 5/5/20 from Craft Shack, San Diego, CA. Reviewed 5/6/20.
Undated can, although there is a nearly invisible code “R2-718-A” on the bottom rim. Stored at home at 42 degrees and served at 45 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 4.
First pour – Pale straw (SRM 2), hazy.
Body – Pale gold (SRM 4), weak effervescence. When held to direct light, translucent.
Head – Large (Maximum six cm, aggressive center pour), off white, high density with rocks, average retention, diminishing to a ten to twenty mm crown with multiple arches and a thick partial cap. Small pieces of lace remain on the glass as the head retracts.
Lacing – Fair. Tiny to medium bubbles forming a ring of buttes with central holes, the beginnings of arches. See also above.
Aroma – 4 - A bit of sweet maltiness followed by weak citrus and some spiciness, no yeastiness.
Flavor – 4 - Begins with a moderate sweetness which quickly turns bitter, no malt, no yeast. Of the hop varieties, the Simcoe is by far the most noticeable. No alcohol (8.6 % ABV as marked on the label) taste or aroma. No diacetyl, no dimethylsulfide. Ends slightly bitter with an earthy twang.
Palate – 3 – Medium, almost creamy, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 3.75 (Lost 0.25 point for undated personal container). The body of this brew is influenced by the added wheat, giving it more heft than most IPAs. Otherwise, both the aromas and flavors are muted, making me think this can is old. Overall, this is a good IPA that seems to have started out much better.

May 20th, 2015 - Another brew that looks incredibly hazy (a product of going gluten free?) here is the Double IPA. With an ABV at 8.6 and 88 IBU's is packs a a wallop, which is why it's strange that its so hard to smell. Perhaps my olfactory is fried, though I'm only two tasters in. The flavor is quite light at first, then explodes with grapefruit bitterness. A long, huge, radiating explosion of dry bitterness and pith follows, like shockwaves. And again in comparison, the front and foretaste are a little sweeter, well balanced and restrained, but then the cacophony hits. It's a fun tasting experience to be sure.

A little hazy medium gold with a frothy off-white head.
Sweet floral citrus on the nose. Taste follows with hints of earthy pine and grapefruit.
Medium carbonation. Light mouthfeel with a slight spicy tang from the wheat addition.
A solid, although different, DIPA. That's San Diego for you. That's how we roll.

On tap at the brewery tap in the Miramar area. This version was hopped with Centennial, Cascade, and Citra and rated at 96 IBUs.

Rather sweet but tangy and sharp. The hop acidity gives it an eye-opening mouthfeel. It's a light but not strong-tasting IPA, in spite of the alcohol content. The luscious aromatics are the best feature with waves of melon, mango, and pineapple. [from notes at July 10, 2015 visit]
