15% Quadruple IIIIPA. Epic is turning 13 in December so they thought hey what better way to celebrate than with a 13% IPA SO how did it end up being 15% ??? Well they put in so much effort to make sure the beer hits its high abv it ended up well over shooting its mark and up at 15%. After tasting it in the tank it was decided it tasted so damn good at 15% they’d keep it rather than diluting it down to 13- so 15 it is !
To keep the base pale and dry as possible they used a large proportion of Pilsner malt then dry hopped with a ridiculous amount of hops but the alcohol and dryness needed more so they added the same amount of dry hops again.
Yup the Ol’ Double Dry Hop !
This is the biggest beer Epic have ever made, granted there’s a lot going on flavour wise within this IIIPA but given its 15% abv it drinks surprisingly easily (just make sure you’re sitting down)
Available in 12 x 500ml & 50L Kegs – yes (gulp) 50L
