Epic Jackpot DIPA (440ml Can)
We have had a long streak of luck with making West Coast style IPA’s. Actually we are famous for it. The winning streak continued earlier this month when we won the 2020 People’s Choice again for the West Coast IPA Challenge with our new beer Grain Dead IPA. We have decided to double down and create this new double IPA version of a West Coast IPA. At 7.77% alc/vol it is a high roller but we are willing to bet it's the wild card in your six pack tonight.
We have used some classic hop varieties which have made this style of beer the most desirable there is in the craft beer world. Mosaic, the sweetheart of every brewer these days, is kind of like the Queen of Hearts. Simcoe in this hand is definitely the King of Spades as it brings that awesome green piney hop resin that we all long for. And the Joker in this hand is Magnum, now considered more of an old-school hop, it is nice to deal up something of interest from our deck of hops. These hops all come together to bring you something new and exciting but also a hint of the familiar, and it gives you that certainty of flavour that will keep you coming back for more.
So we have laid our cards on the table. Are you in?
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.
