Brewery: Holgate Brewhouse
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
When it was first released in 2008, Holgate's American DIPA Hopinator was something out of the ordinary, being a rich, malty and bitter beast. In the intervening years, double IPAs became commonplace and more recently the IPA pendulum has swung to the opposite end of the spectrum with the market being awash with sweet and juicy hazies. At Holgate their brewers love playing with new trends but also like to dance to forge their own path! So, they thought it was the perfect time to improve on the original Hopinator recipe and unleash an uncompromising old school DIPA onto an unsuspecting world!
