Yeastie Boys Her Majesty 2014 (750ml Bottle)
Her Majesty 2014 is our first foray into the murky realm of Double IPAs. Need we say more? The world of Double IPA is a place where beer geeks wax lyrical over what hop varieties have been used, so we’ve kept them a secret for the first time ever. The only clue is that we’ve used something trendy, something that used to be trendy and something that should be trendy. It’s a beer that is not inspired by, but reminds us of,the Cranberries’ 5x platinum selling “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?”Drink now or cellar for up to 18 months.
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.
