HopDog C-Bomb

We all drop the C-Bomb sometimes and we’d imagine that Tim from HopDog dropped it when he learnt that we hadn’t received our last delivery of his beers because they had been “disappeared” by couriers from Fastway. This time around he has a much better reason for dropping the C-Bomb, given it is the name of his latest beer. And it is a beer that lives up to the brewery’s name: a double IPA crammed chock full of American and Kiwi hops, this is one not to be messed with. According to Tim it “weighs in at 9.3 per cent abv and a calculated bitterness of 150 IBUs. It’s not for the faint of heart. Hopped with Chinook, Columbus and the mighty NZ Wiamea/Big Banger, it’s intense and full on. On the first sample bottle tasted at the Dubbel T Brau Haus it was fresh cut grass (with a hint of 2 stroke), stone fruits, citrus and tropical fruits. A huge whack of bitterness, a bit of alcohol warmth, and a loooong bitter finish. It bought out a couple of expletives.” It’s in 640ml bottles too.
