TORONTO, ON – Beer Academy has announced the launch of new beer that head brewer Stephen Rich describes as one of the most difficult beers the brewery has ever produced.
Beer Academy Double IPA was “a huge pain to make cause we don’t have conical tanks, and dry-hopping has caused serious issues in the past,” explains Rich. “But, I think the resulting beer is delicious, and packed with hops. Pretty much the limit of this brewery.”
The 8.6% abv and 92 IBU ale has the following tasting notes:
Double IPA is a purpose built hop-bomb pushing the limits of hopping in our little brewery. We put hops in the boil kettle, the fermenter, and twice in the conditioning tank! The bright golden liquid that results is sunny with a pitch white foam. Zesty citrus and tropical aromas of grapefruit, orange peel and passionfruit push the aroma and reflect in the flavour. The first sip will prove that malt is only here to support a big hop bitterness and loads of hoppy flavours from front to back. It’s medium body makes it enjoyable to drink and the smooth bitter finish is exceptionally satisfying.
Beer Academy Double IPA will be available starting tomorrow (Wednesday May 14th) on draught and in bottles in the Beer Academy taproom and retail store while supplies last.
