Australia | Imperial India Pale Ale | 8.1%
Pouring a cloudy amber orange, get Shizammed right off the bat with the big yeasty, citrusy and stone fruit aroma. Brewed with four different types of hops and stacks of them – Chinook from the US, Australia’s Vic Secret, and Orbit and Riwaka from New Zealand – this is a hop demon for sure. But there’s some serious malt in the picture too which gives enough sweetness so that you don’t get Shizammed right off your chair at the first sip. We love the way those caramel and toffee malt flavours just melt in amongst the big piney, resiny, fruity hop uppercut to make Hop Dog’s double IPA one with plenty of snarl and bark for sure but with an unexpected nuzzle of friendly warmth as well.
