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.

Heroes Lili

Brewery: Heroes Beer Co.
Country: Hong Kong
ABV: 8%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: The Marvellous Magical Broom. Hazy DIPA. Flavor Profile – Tropical fruits, citrus, dank. In collaboration with Pink Boots Society

Brewer Description: (from can) After her journey with Kiki and Jiji, Lili went on to become an all-round magical broom. From basic broom skills like sweeping, flying, soup-stirring to rare ones like broom-fencing against self-righteous snobs, she somehow manages to always handle with flair.

In a Pink Boots Society fundraiser, Lili stirred-up a glass of her signature PBS Hop Blend soup for Albert. It was so good that he immediately begged for an apprenticeship. Lili said yes, in the condition that he will do all the housework and always keep the toilet seat down.

This Hazy DIPA is Albert’s graduation project – to master the PBS Hop Blend 2020. Loaded with tropical fruits, citrus and dank hop aroma. Drinks with a smooth mouthfeel and finishes with a sweet impression.
