COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It all began in September, last year, when we invited our “Rainbow Project” collaborators and good friends, Naparbier, to come brew our first DIPA – “Bone King”. Super drinkable, high ABV beers are Naparbier’s bread and butter, but was something of learning experience for us, being the first time we used Dextrose in a brew (which increases sugar content and therefore ease of fermentation, along with decreasing fusel alcohol making for that cleaner, more IPA-er flavour you know and love!) Well that learning experience turned out to be an absolute treat, resulting in incredible feedback and not only our and Naparbier’s first (of many, hopefully) 100 rating on ratebeer.com, but also a feature in the top 50 beers of the 2014. Excellent news all round, except it was so limited, hen’s teeth were regularly mentioned…   We couldn’t simply let it lie, but simply repeating the collab recipe felt a little half hearted, so we have sampled, tweaked, sampled, then tweaked some more in order to bring you what we are confident is the best final product possible! This marks yet another milestone, as it will be the UK’s first canned DIPA too! As mentioned, the dextrose makes for a much cleaner taste profile, meaning you will hopefully be able to taste the vast complexities alongside how much care and attention has been put into this big, juicy, hoppy, aromatic, in your face double IPA.

Tin, April 2016. I love it when a DIPA doesn’t taste of throat sweets and peach iced tea. God bless Beavertown. Alluring white grape, mouldering pineapple, tropical Starburst, lychee and guava Rubicon aroma squarely in the modern English camp. More grape, Rubicon, Darjeeling and lemon zest taste. There is malt but of the right kind and unobtrusive paleness. Soapy and floral without a trace of peppery heat. Green and stewed and subtly multicoloured. All about the hop. Bonus point purely for the can.

Draft. A hazy golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of fruits, hay, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, fruits, and malt, leading to a bitter finish.

Keg Half Pint at BrewDog, Clerkenwell, London in Jan 2016 - Hazy Amber Gold in colour. Good off-white head. Good lacing. Very Fruity; tangy tropical and citrus fruits, peaches, grapefruit, mango, oranges. Very Hoppy; resinous piney hops, big assertive hop hit. Malty; bready malts, caramel. Dry throughout. Bitter very tropical and citrus fruity and resinous hoppy throughout. Very dry hoppy fruity finish. Enjoyed this a lot. Terrific fruity Impy IPA! (2016-01-30)

Can @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Pours deep golden with a medium white head. Aroma is very hoppy, grapefruit, citrus and passionfruit, medium malt profile. Flavour is medium sweet with a strong bitter end, well balanced. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

33cl can @ Bishop’s arms, Västerås. Poured golden color with a thick white head. Juicy, tropical fruity hoppy aroma. Inviting. Flavor has tropical fruits, malt, sweetness, warmth. Feels smooth. Huge drinkability considering the high abv. Great stuff! Did I say juicy?

From old notes. Medium carb with immediate long bitterness which lasts throughout. Spicy, juicy and clean yet controlled and def on point.
