McLeod's Shipwreck Double IPA (440ml Can)
Pouring deep gold with a hint of hop haze, seasonal Shipwreck DIPA has big fans for good reason. All lemon peel, pine, resinous dank hops & light bready malt up front & on the palate, the finish is pine-like & lingering with firm bitterness. Wicked drinkable, but with an ABV worthy of respect.
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.
