The Dudes Double Trunk (473ml Can)
They say an elephant never forgets. When it comes to this double IPA, you won’t either. This gentle giant certainly certainly has mad hops, but ferments out dry, so it’s not too malty on the finish. Clocking in at 10.8 percent ABV, it’s definitely not for the timid mice amongst you. Put on your trunks and dive in.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
