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.

Not bad but more powerful than good. Needs better balance.

This had a nice malty balanced, with some old world piney hop flavour.

Deep amber colour with off white head leaves some lacing. Scent is hoppy but not over powering, grassy with a citrus presence, orange or grapefruit maybe. Taste is similar to aroma but with enough caramel malt to balance. Mouthfeel is great. I always sip IPA'S so enjoying this one is not a problem. I love west coast IPA'S with spicy BBQ meats and am sure this one fits in fine. 4 out of 5 stars. Enjoy!

Great hoppy aroma with a 1" head with good mouth feel. The bitterness is a little overwhelm. If they can reduce the IBU with the bitternes while keeping everything else, this would be a great beer.

New review: this is Speakeasy's reformulating recipe that was recently released in 12oz cans. Poured from can to Speakeasy goblet. Pours a hazy deep orange with one finger off white creamy head. Nose is bright with tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and dank notes. A pop of grapefruit and orange bitterness on the front f the palate leads into a nice but restrained malt sweetness. No caramel flavors to mess up this dipa. A lingering piney and resinous bitterness costs the palate on the back end. Mouthfeel is a bit above average for the style. Finishes dry with nice dank and grapefruit notes. An improvement for sure on the old recipe.

Bottle poured into a Speakeasy pint glass

A: Pours deep amber with a frothy off white head that settles and laces well.

S: Sweet caramel malt, some grapefruit, and some light fruity notes.

T: Citrus hops, grapefruit stands out, also some orange, a little pine, a bit herbal, with nice caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Maybe not super special, but a solid brew none the less.
