Cloudwater DIPA

Brewery: Cloudwater Brew Co.
Country: England
ABV: 8%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Aroma & Flavour – Overripe mango and papaya, supported by peach and passion fruit with a light, sweet malt profile. Body – Full-bodied, smooth and juicy. Aftertaste – Lasting juicy orange and noticeable peppery character

Brewer Description: (from can) The Double IPA is a style we’ve become synonymous with. While its roots stretch back to a full-team West Coast beer tasting in September 2015, and our scene-changing V series throughout 2015-2016, it is significantly different to the IIPAs that originally inspired us and acts as an ever-evolving representation of a hazy, soft and deceptively drinkable strong IPA.

Cloudwater Here’s Another Thing To Think About

Brewery: Cloudwater Brew Co.
Country: England
ABV: 8%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Aroma & Flavour – Orange pulp and dried apricot, leading to pithy grapefruit and big, sticky pine notes. Body – Clean and smooth with a restrained sweetness followed by a long, dry and bitter finish. Aftertaste – Lingering pine, pithy citrus and resinous hop notes

Brewer Description: (from can) Think about a Californian sunset. Think about a lush, dense, coniferous forest. Or let all thoughts gradually slip from your head as you savour this bold, yet clean and deceptively drinkable, West Coast-style Imperial IPA.

Bright & resinous. Punchy yet clean, balancing bold hop flavours and subtle sweetness with a dry, bitter finish.
