Big DIPA by Wallenpaupack Brewing Co. is a Double IPA and is being evaluated as a Double IPA (category 22A in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). The focus of the Double IPA style is hops, hops and more hops. Additionally, despite being a high-alcohol content style, Double IPAs are fairly drinkable and lack a heavy malty body, which are more typical traits of beers of this alcohol content. Big DIPA is brewed with Galaxy, Comet and Vic Secret hops and measures in at 8.0% ABV and 55 IBUs.

Big DIPA pours light golden in color with a moderate haze and a big, fluffy, white head. The aroma is prominent peach, resin and citrus hop characters; just a hint of malt stands out among the big hop aromas. The flavor is moderate tropical fruit, resin and herbal hops over a hint of pale malt. The beer finishes moderately bitter with big hop flavors of tropical fruit and generic citrus.

Big DIPA is a solid Double IPA with a wealth of hop intensity and flavor. Hop heads, seek this one out!
