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.

ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! (Early hours of the morning rating). Clear amber beer. Light crisp palate with an alcoholic snap to it. Sweetish malt base on which sweet piney hops come to the fore. Finishes dry and with more sweet hops. Nice! Original rating 3.7

5th August 2011
GBBF. Cask. Hazy deep amber beer. Residual off white head. Amazing nose of intense marmalade, orange liquer and tangy fruit. Light palate, semi dry. Taste follows the nose to a degree. Caramel malt base. Trace of red friuts. There is an overall sweetness to the beer despite the hop attack. Finishes semi dry with mild aniseed aftertaste. Very tasty!
