The Experimental IPA Project is an opportunity for Great Divide to flex its brewing ingenuity and showcase experimental IPA styles outside of our everyday offerings.
Experimental IPA #6
The sixth release in our rotating Experimental Hop Project featured exclusively in our HOPPY VARIETY 12-PACK is an IPA reimagined. With a heaping addition of hardy rye, this copper-hued beauty delivers an unmistakable spicy rye character, while a burly dose of American hops evokes the piney aroma of untamed wilderness. Balanced, bold, and brave, this Rye IPA claims any prize.
ABV: 8.3% | DATE ON BOTTOM OF CAN: Aug 29-TBD | SIZES: 12oz cans available exclusively in our Hoppy Variety 12-pack
Experimental IPA #5
Originally brewed as Companion Ale to support Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment (@cradavalancherescue)—a non-profit that trains teams of avalanche search & rescue dogs in Colorado—the response to this beer was so positive we decided to give it a little more time to shine in our Hoppy Variety Pack. This juicy, hazy tangerine-enhanced IPA is soft on the bitterness and heavy on the fruit flavor.
ABV: 6.5% | DATE ON 12-PACK: May 3-Aug 28 | SIZES: 12oz cans available exclusively in our Hoppy Variety 12-pack
Experimental IPA #4
The fourth release in our rotating Experimental Hop Project featured exclusively in our HOPPY VARIETY 12-PACK is a throw-back to one of the earliest India Pale Ale sub-styles—the Black IPA. Much darker in color than a traditional IPA thanks to its unusual grain bill. Chocolate notes lead the charge followed by mild roasted barley and a hop profile that favors pine and dank characteristics with a touch of citrus fruit. Hopped up with Vic Secret, Simcoe, Amarillo and Huell Melon, this beer features an exceedingly clean bitterness.
ABV: 6.9% | DATE ON 12-PACK: Feb 6 – Apr 4 | SIZES: 12oz cans available exclusively in our Hoppy Variety 12-pack
