Speakeasy Brewery Double Daddy IPA is the next brew that is being featured in this beer blog. As many of you know, I have blogged on this brewery and I am huge fan of their brews. If you have not read those posts, please, read those beer posts to get to know this brewery. Let us get into another everyday brew from Speakeasy Brewery.
It has a deep dark copper color with a white constant head. The smell is a mango or tropical fruit to the beer. The taste is a carbonated mango without an aftertaste. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Doubling down on malt and hops, Double Daddy raises the stakes. With its good looks and no-limit style, Double Daddy takes the pot every time.

Closing out, Double Daddy is not a joke and you should not mess with this dude. They took their Big Daddy IPA to the next level. If you are a fan of their everyday six-pack IPA, you will love this Imperial IPA. There is a nice balance between the hops and malt unlike most Imperial India Pale Ales on the market. I would put this up against many Imperial IPAs in my market. It is drinkable but has the punch like most Imperial IPAs on the market. It is not over powering like you get from most Imperial IPAs. I highly recommend this brew from Speakeasy. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
