This was really enjoyable. A really nice imperial IPA. A lot of West Coast IPA profiles in this one with lots of citrus hops. I’ve only had a few beers from Speakeasy, but I’ve enjoyed them all.

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.
American Comfort Fare:
Fried and spicy foods like hot wings and jalapeño poppers will stand up well against Double Daddy’s assertive character.
Bitter-braised greens w/ citrus vinaigrette, cold soba noodle salad w/ sesame oil, or anything with yuzu will bring out the crisp citrus notes of DD’s six hop additions.
Spiced desserts w/ butter and crème brûlée will round out this Imperial IPA’s bitter hop profile.
