Wallenpaupack Brewing Co. Head Brewer Logan Ackerley Talks Big DIPA

We spoke with Wallenpaupack Brewing Co. Head Brewer Logan Ackerley about Big DIPA.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
My favorite thing about Big DIPA is the amount of fruity hop character it has. We keep the bitterness low to really amplify the tropical fruit notes derived from the hops.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
It’s just a play on us wanting to brew a big double IPA with a fun label concept.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Hazy tropical fruit hop bomb.

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
One of the fun things about this beer is the label we put on it. Galaxy and Vic Secret hops are the stars in this double IPA so we had the label artist throw in some subtle references to them. The galaxy in the sky behind the moon (obviously) references Galaxy hops and the women’s clothing by the dock is a subtle nod to Victoria's Secret.
