Emelisse Double IPA (330ml Bottle)
IPA - India Pale Ale - has lately been on the rise. This traditional extra hopped beer is taken firmly in hand by American brewers. Americans brew beer there so hopped that once you remove the crown it resembles a mushroom cloud. Emelisse have attempted and successfully "hopbom" this: although extremely reserved, Emelisse Double IPA has the perfect balance between fruity and bitter.
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.
