Reviews by Style: Double/Imperial IPA

Galaxy Showers Double IPA

Tropical fruit & oily hops; grapefruit, mango, & peach; balanced bitter cereal mid; boozy; crisp.

Dammed! Double IPA

Malty, herby, & earthy nose (garlic?); bready & malty, sweet; lots of caramel; resiny hops; spicy & boozy.

Pliny the Elder Double IPA

Grapefruit floral nose; citrus & peach on tongue; soapy, hoppy, piney mid, lingering bitter finish.

Bitter Monk Belgian Style Double IPA

Settling in with a Bitter Monk DIPA. Lemon zest, citrus hops, pine tar, and oak. Bam! So that’s what 100 IBU feels like.

Dorado Double IPA

Grapefruit and earthy hop nose; orange rind, sweet caramel, and pepper tongue. Big, big bite!

Chesebro IPA

Stone 16th Anniversary Celebration – Sample #8 Delicate at first, but quickly turns palate-wreckingly bitter. Wow!

Liberation IPA

Stone 16th Anniversary Celebration – Sample #5 Nice and bitey. Tons of hop character. Bitter finish. Foamy by far.

Enjoy By 9-21-12 IPA

Stone 16th Anniversary Celebration – Sample #1 A fresher smelling-and-tasting, lighter, smoother variant of Stone’s IPA.

6th Anniversary Ale

Big, bold Cali DIPA. Mega head. Grapefruit and pine nose, caramel and lemon on the tongue.

Moylander Double IPA

Biscuits & grapefruit on nose, citrus & pine resin on tongue, dry bitter finish.
