Epic DDH Dust (Loopy IPA) (500ml Bottle)
Magic Dust has been truly magical. We had trouble making enough using all the Mosaic dust we had, so we made a new IPA using some other hop dust varieties. We have used Citra and Simcoe lupulin powder (the sticky yellow powder on hop flowers) in DDH Dust IPA.
DDH = Double Dry Hopped. As always, we at Epic try to make beers bigger than before. So this time, with a recipe inspired by Magic Dust, we double dry hopped the beer. Why Loopy IPA? It is a play on the word Lupulin. Magic Dust was a Lupulin IPA, so this one is a Loopy IPA, because the level of dry hopping is a bit on the crazy side. This beer has been described as both smelling and tasting like a fresh hopped beer. A fantastic huge hop aroma that will put a smile on the face of any hophead. Flavour is just a great blend of Citra and Simcoe hops.
India Pale Ale & IPA
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
