Double IPAs (also referred to as Imperial IPAs) are a stronger, very hoppy variant of IPAs. American hops are used in this recipe to give a very refreshing citrus aroma and flavor as well as a strong bitter component to balance the additional malt this style is known for. The rich flavor from the malt and the hops balance the high alcohol of this style making it have a robust flavor and warmth to the finish. This beer will have some sharpness to it while the ingredients come into balance. Drink it young for bold sharp flavors or let it age for a few months to let them mold into deliciously complex beer.
