Cervejaria Dogma | The Hop Is In The Head Batch #1

The Hop Is In The Head was born when we still brewed homebrews. The idea behind this beer was always to unite classic hops with the newer ones in a simple and neutral malt base which would allow this ingredient to shine as the protagonist. On this first version, we united the traditional Citra and Galaxy with two newer ones that are drawing attention, the Aloha and the HBC 586! The result is a citric, fruity and floral IPA that combines Guava, Pineapple and Passion Fruit due to the 28g/L of hops that were used.

  • Beer: The Hop Is In The Head Batch #1
  • Style: Double IPA (22A. Double IPA)
  • ABV: 9.5%
  • IBU: N/A
  • Brewery:
  • Look: yellow color, clear, with a great white head formation that leaves marks on the glass.
  • Aroma: present herbal and floral notes. There is an alcohol presence as well. As the beer heated on the glass, citric fruit notes became noticeable.
  • Taste: on the first sips, the alcohol was really present, to the point that it was distracting me from other flavors. But, after about three sips, fruity notes started appearing, bringing passion fruit and grapefruit notes. Light herbal notes became noticeable as the beer heated on the glass.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry and long finish.
  • Overall: Good Double IPA. Really boozy at first, to the point that it disturbed the beer tasting. But, after some time, it showed itself a good beer.
