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.

Very good DIPA, on tap at The Cannery Row. Cloudy orange and Lacey. Big hops, hop aroma, fruity apricot , peach,citrus, and earthy. Good drinking for the style. Good Fall beer. Dry hop and toasted malt finish. Fuller mouthfeel with a good malting, caramel.

Poured from a botte into a chalice glass.

As always with Speakeasy, the appearance is stunning. Incredible crimson gold with a small foamy head that sticks around. Beautiful.

Smells like a standard IPA. Doesn't blow your hair back like some of the hoppier DIPAs I've had.

Very buttery taste, again, with typical IPA balance.

Feels perfect on the tongue. Nothing else to say.

Overall I went with a 4 rating because I feel a DIPA should knock you out a little more. That said, this is a delicious beer. Go out and get some.

On tap at Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a slightly funky flavor on the finish. There is a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that seems to be displaying a slight infection issue perhaps.

Pours a nice clear coppery color, with a cream colored head of a couple fingers. Leaves minimal lace. The aroma is tropical fruits, and a bit pine and resin note, backed by a proficient caramel malt backbone. The taste is very malty. Caramel and nutty, but also an almost rich chocolaty taste. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness that still lets you know it's an IPA. It's creamy, sticky and a little rich. Full bodied.

Definitely a malty DIPA, but it's good.
