Brewed by:
Speakeasy Ales & Lagers
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Doubling down on malt & hops, Double Daddy raises the stakes. Double Daddy pours a fiery orange with a lasting creamy white head. Triple dry-hopped with Pacific Northwest hops, the aroma is lush and floral with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and spice. Fresh pale malts and an orange marmalade tang balance the bold, bitter hops and lean mouthfeel.

See this beer in bottles all the time in the city, had to have it on tap.

Pours a beautiful bronze orange sandwiched with lemon highlights.

Floral, hoppy, alcohol smell to it up front. Deep penetrating smell.

Has a deep malt, biting hops, and alcohol finish to it.

Dizzying aftertaste of hops and alcohol. Speakseasy, and Drinkseasy.

Hazy yellow-gold body, topped by a thick slab of creamy white froth. Good lacing.

Pleasing, inviting nose of citrus, heavy on the grapefruit.

Nice malty start that throws down a landing pad so the hop assault has something to build on. The opening burst of sweetness is strong enough to register before giving way to a delightfully bitter and fruity bite in the back of the throat. Traces of hops linger long after.

Good medium mouthfeel. Very good drinkability.

A well structured Imperial IPA which hides its alcohol and gives you some malt along with big hops. Recommended.

Nice when fresh Speakeasy makes it way to NJ/PA. This sample was only four months old.

Bottle Pours a hazy amber with a good creamy white head, which is mostly lasting and produces good lacing. A very hoppy aroma of spruce and pine. With a touch of herbs and a pepper base. Has an oily texture with a great mouthfeel. Carbonation is really good. A very clean crisp taste. Has a wonderful duration. A great bitter finish. A great tasting IPA. Definately an upper tier IPA. I would highly recommend this one.

pours a golden orangish hue with a haze. Poued rather easy to not disturb the sediment. Small head resulted.
Nose is big hops earthy and grainy with an alcoholic hint as well. Malts peircing through the edges.
Very big on taste as well. Thick, bitter and floral hops blasting the palate with a moderate balance of malts. The hops are so powerfull it tends to outpoint the malt. Alchohol burn as this one lingers.
