IPA is Dead
IPA is Dead
For the last week we have been busy breaking new year's resolutions and brewing some limited edition single hop india pale ales. We have also been wearing many different types of hats and trying to come up with a secret recipe for 5am Saint tea (see above).
IPA is Dead is a mixed 4 pack of single hop IPAs. Using the same base 7.5% beer (a baby Hardcore), IPA is Dead showcases our 4 favourite hops from 4 corners of the planet. These beers will be available in early February.
At BrewDog we are insanely passionate about hats, rock ‘n’ roll penguins, avoiding ghosts and hops. We bloody love hops. We felt it was time hops went solo and got their own prime-time show.
IPA is dead showcases 4 killer hops varieties from 4 different continents. The result is 4 radically different single hop IPAs. Each IPA contains the same malt backbone and is brewed to be 75 IBU and is enthusiastically kettle hopped and dry hopped with Citra, Bramling Cross, Nelson Sauvin or Sorachi Ace.
To appreciate the true character, flavour, power and aroma of our favourite hops you need them in their purest, undiluted form. Can you say you've ever experienced 100% pure hop awesomeness? IPA is Dead is brewed and bottled to do just that.
The 4 pack design
Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Single hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Sorachi Ace, Citra or Bramling Cross
