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.

Nice Beer! Pours a dark amber, cloudy with a nice white head that holds well. Aroma was malty sweet and hoppy. Taste was a nice sweetness from the malt and a good blend of hops that bitter nicely. The aftertaste was good. The mouth feel was full. A really good beer!

A- Pours a clear copper color with a nice, 1.5 finger frothy head. S- Smell sweet and malty with hints of caramel. T- Very sweet, caramel, hints of piney hops. A bit of a mettalic aftertaste. M- Thick with low carbonation. D- This was a fairly drinkable beer however I think it was a little off balance in the malt department which made it a little harder to drink.

hotstuff (3941) - Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Rated on 01-03-2010 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a small ivory head with a short retention, transparent orange body, visible carbonation, and it has spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, bitter, and citrus hops. The Taste is very bitter, caramel malt, citrus hops, and has a short dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is a beer for the hopheads, is a sipping beer and has a lingering biter hoppy aftertaste. If you enjoy very hoppy tasting beer, then I recommend trying this one.

WOW! This is what a DIPA is all about. To hell with the color and the aroma, this tastes fantastic. Nice sweet malt up front with a solid dose of grassy citrus hops. The 10.6% ABV is not really evident until it warms. Very slick and oily on the tongue and roof or my mouth. For the uninitiated beware, this very drinkable ale will drag you to the bottom of the sea quickly!

22oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is mahogany with three fingers of light kaki head. Nose is malt, hops, resign, pine, grapefruit, caramel, and cantaloupe. Taste is right on the money, with a dish soap finish. This is a very well done DIPA, and just one more reason to give Heavy Seas my hard earned green! A+++
