COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big DIPA – Double IPA
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Malts: American 2-Row, Crystal, Biscuit
ABV: 10.6%
IBU: 75.5

Big DIPA – Double IPA, is the first in the Heavy Seas Special Edition Series due to be released in mid June. Hopped 3 times in the brewing process, Big DIPA has an earthy hop aroma. In keeping with the Heavy Seas philosophy we’ve made a big beer with a surprising balance. The best part is that you’ll hardly notice it’s 10.6% ABV (est). The label artwork was created by Kurt Krol, one of our brewers who also helped to develop the recipe.

Bottled as a bomber. Served in a pint glass. Appearance: Medium amber color, 1/2 inch off-white foam head, decent lacing Aroma: Floral Taste: fairly harsh alcohol taste, not too bitter, somewhat sweet. Palate: Medium/thick mouth feel Overall: Good Beer, only complaint was the stronger-than-expected alcohol taste. A relatively inexpensive & good tasting Double IPA though.

Bottle at Uno’s in Neshaminy. Remember very little, except that the alcohol is more noticeable than the commercial description suggests.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pint from The Lackman in Cincinnati. Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a small off-white ring. Tons of fruit in this- grapefruit, orange, melon, pineapple- with caramel malts, pine resin, and some floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a chewy, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Big DIPA. Too much for my brother. I liked it.

Cask@GBBF2011. Golden amber colour with a small head. Aroma is fruits, some bready malts, mild sweet malts as well as some grassy notes. Flavour is quite much the same with also a bunch of toffeeish notes.

I’ve slated biscuit malt in the past but this one showed me how its used right as a backdrop for hoppy assertiveness which comes in the form of two of my favorite hops. But, I swear the hop quotient is more IPA than DIPA and the malts deliver the high abv. This one has a slightly tea-like finish to it which kind of dampers the exuberance. Picked this up at Chips in OBX.

On cask at Frisco Grille. Amber color with no head. Fruit and Citrus aroma. Caramel malt flavor with fruit notes. Citrus hop finish. Being on cask it was flatter than the bottled version.

22oz poured into a pint glass. Pour is a clear amber color with a bisquit colored head. Aromas are subtle for such a big beer, but there are definite malty notes and some hoppiness on the nose. Taste is a very malt forward DIPA with some bitterness, but mostly boozy and malt is what I get. The hops could be more forward to bitter the finish. Not much of a finish, quite abrupt. Overall and OK DIPA, but many better ones are out there.
