Liberty Knife Party IPA (500ml Bottle)
Originally brewed for the West Coast IPA Challenge in 2013, the name of this beer wasn’t always planned to be so grotesque. You see... I had penned the name "Yakima Kitchen Sink" as it had pretty much every hop variety I could get from the USA thrown in. However, whilst filling the kegs for this esteemed competition, a song came on Spotify and made the task so much more enjoyable that I decided to change the name. But let’s face it: Yakima Kitchen Sink was a bit rubbish really! Anyhow, regardless of the name... the beer continued to take out the champion spot which was one of the most proud moments of my life. It’s just a shame I wasn’t there to enjoy the celebrations! Enjoy the taste of indecision and victory at refrigeration temperature with your friends or family.
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.
