Epic Big Hop DIPA (500ml Bottle)
After an amazing summer of beer, which included our new hit Lil Hop, we thought it was time to ramp things up again. Big Hop is exactly double the abv. of Lil Hop 4.4% at 8.8%. Big Hop has some Big Shoes to fill following its predecessors in the Epic Double IPA family; Thor, Big Bang, Hop Zombie and Lupulingus. The Hulk like green on the label almost glows in the day looking like the Hop Zombie label would glowing in the dark. This beer is driven by Cascade, Simcoe, Amarillo and Equinox hops and will deliver some big fruity dank goodness married together with the English and German Pale malts
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.
