Ocean Reach Cosmic _Dip

Dip Hopped IPA

They have a knack for making IPAs at Ocean Reach and to celebrate turning six, they’ve naturally marked it with another. That birthday beer is Cosmic _Dip, a 6.4 percent ABV IPA that makes the most of dipping hopping and while the space-age, trippy can might suggest that drinking it will send you to a place spinach seems to take you to, the technique is really a little more straightforward.

Effectively the brewing method takes away less desirable myrcene qualities of hops and leaves behind the fruit notes we know and love - you can read more about it here. In the case of Mosaic, El Dorado and Vic Secret there are a lot of really clean flavours to dive into, with Cosmic _Dip providing sweet tangerine, pawpaw, grapefruit and pine. Tie in an excellent structure with a building bitterness and you have a clean and vibrant IPA that's a fitting tribute to Ocean Reach's six years brewing on Phillip Island.
