ART+24 Oat & Spelt DDH DIPA—tasting notes
ART+24 Oat & Spelt DDH DIPA is a collab between Browar Stu Mostów and American brewery Whiplash. It is an Imperial IPA brewed with lots of oats and spelt, and brewed with double dry-hopping. It has a very fruity aroma, with hints of malt and citrics. Taste is sweet, with some maltiness and also bitterness from hops.
Imperial IPA or Double IPA is a strongly hopped strong pale ale. Its appearance is golden to light orange-copper, with almost no hazyness. Aromas are predominantly hoppy, with notes of American hops—pine, citrus, tropical fruits, etc.—, and additional dry hopping may give some herbal character. Flavour is highly bitter, very hoppy, with floral hints from the American hop varieties. Finish is dry to medium-dry and medium to high carbonation. It's bitter and hoppier than a English IPA or an American IPA, and less malty and less alcoholic than an American Barleywine.
