HALIFAX, NS – Propeller Brewing has announced the addition of Propeller Double IPA to their rotating line-up of seasonal releases.
Inspired by the positive reaction to Propeller 2xIPA – a one-off beer released last month as part of the One Hit Wonder series – the brewery decided to tweak the recipe and the name, and give it wider distribution as a seasonal brand for spring.
Propeller Double IPA is a full bodied, American style Double India Pale Ale that is brewed with premium Pacific Northwest hops and a rich blend of 2-row Pale and Crystal malts. Following fermentation it has been heavily dry hopped (a process that enhances the aroma without imparting bitterness in beer) giving this bold brew its big west coast nose. Double IPA delivers a huge amount of piney, floral, and citrusy hop aroma and flavour from start to finish that is balanced by sweet malt flavours. At 8.2% alcohol by volume and 85 IBUs, Propeller Double IPA is not for everyone… It is a TRUE hop bomb, for TRUE hopheads.
