55|01 Double IPA – Citra Mosaic Simcoe
23 Feb 2016

BBNo Tap Clip - 55-01-000165-01

Modern, pale, hop-forward beers are very much our thing. We also love challenging beers with higher alcohol, complex fermentations and demonstrable skill in their construction. A Double IPA has been a dream of ours for some time, one that remained within reach but outside of our grasp, until now.

We only attempted to brew our first Double IPA when we were absolutely certain that we had the experience, technical ability and confidence to do so. We also needed hops – lots of hops, no less than 50kg in a 4000l batch, in fact – and 55|01 uses three of our absolute favourites: Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe.

With a 100% pale malt grist, the grain character is kept fully in check: a smooth balancing texture, gentle enough to remain in the background. The huge hop additions make for a symphony of juicy tropical fruit, resinous pine, aromatic zest and slick, citric bitterness that remains astonishingly clean and balanced at its muscular 9.2% abv.

55|01 satisfyingly pulls off the Double IPA trick of being both intense and drinkable, balancing its flavours and textures even as it crosses your palate. It’s a beer that marks a level of advancement for us as a brewery, and we are delighted to launch 55|01 Double IPA – Citra Mosaic Simcoe simultaneously at Craft Beer Rising and our brewery taproom on Friday 26 February. Expect to see it in pubs, bars and bottle shops from this weekend – but not for long! We hope you enjoy it.

Cheers!
