Polly's Brew Co - Wave Mix - Double India Pale Ale - 440ml Can

£6.50

Whilst they love the DIPA game up there at Polly's, they've got a lot of time for reeling things back to the lower end of the DIPA spectrum - hitting all that flavour intensity and mouthfeel but at a sliiiightly lower ABV.

Wave Mix takes this idea and runs with it big time; coming in at a modest 7.8% but punching way above its weight.

Their signature pyramid dry-hopping technique is in full flow here and starts proceedings with a hefty 30kg addition of Mosaic, before 20kg and 10kg additions of Vic Secret and Citra finish the dry-hop bill off.

The result is a DIPA that accentuates the incredible characteristics of each of these varietals - think big punchy tangerine and blueberries from Mosaic, masses of pineapple and passionfruit from Vic Secret, before rounding off with pithy citrus from Citra.
