…IPA, that is.
The seemingly annual tradition lives on. February has low-key become the seasonal month of Double IPA releases. It’s probably because Midwesterners are starting to get sick of winter by now, and need an extra kick in their glass. Whatever the reason, our beer cooler is packed to the gills with Double IPAs and it’s in your best interest to come buy some. Take a gander at some of the best we have to offer:
Lupulin/Surly Operation CoHoperation Double IPA — $15.99/4pk Cans
A collaboration between two local hop-stalwarts, this edition of CoHoperation features fruit cocktail hop aromas from Citra, Sultana, and Lotus hops and a thick, chewy, sweet-ish malt profile to back it up.
Pryes Above The Canopy Hazy Double IPA — $15.99/4pk Cans
Double dry-hopped with Mosaic, Samba, and Amarillo hops, Above the Canopy wafts tropical fruit aromas and a little hint of that resin-y, green green character.
Modist Future Pixels DDH Double IPA — $17.99/4pk Cans
You betcha’, this one is double dry-hopped too! Galaxy, Strata, and Sultana hops join forces to create a futuristically delicious hazy double.
Toppling Goliath Supa’ Sumo Double IPA — $17.99/4pk Cans
This Citra and Mosaic-hopped double IPA will pile drive your taste buds and then sit on them. Juicy pineapple and orange citrus notes with a heavy load of bitterness.
Bell’s Hopslam Double IPA — $16.99/6pk Cans
The beer that likely started this whole February Double IPA thing. First brewed in 2004, Hopslam has been the benchmark of this category for well over a decade. Brewed with six different hops and a big dollop of honey for a floral, fruity, sweet and bitter nirvana.
Three Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf Imperial IPA — $13.99/4pk
As the awesome yet frightening label might suggest, Arctic Panzer Wolf is here to rip apart your palate with a massive 100 IBUs. Certainly an old-school take on the style, it boasts piney citrus hop notes with a rich malty core and lingering bitterness.
