Hop City is a celebration of the humble hop, bringing some of the leading masters of brewing from around the world to Leeds, UK. Expect juice bombs, DIPAs, sours and murk, there will be something for everyone. This DDH IPA is the festival’s ambassador brew, created with Yakima Chief hops.
We Are Europe, 2020 edition: This double IPA showcases HBC 692, one of the most exciting experimental varieties coming through Yakima Chief Ranches’ breeding program. It has an exceptionally high oil content which leads to a really resinous profile with prominent notes of pink grapefruit as well as pine and tropical fruit which make it suited to a wide range of IPA styles. We supported this with the unique pina colada character of Sabro and the signature tropical fruit vibrancy of Citra, both utilised in T90 pellet and CryoTM format. A total of 32g/l of hopping across whirlpool and dry hop is supported by a New England IPA base loaded with multiple oat formats and some malted wheat; all ideal for building the silkiest and fullest mouthfeel for this juicy double IPA.
