It’s called Tidal Shift DIPA, and it’s not Fifty West Brewing Company’s first time to the Double IPA rodeo. Their Punch You In The IPA, which clocks in at 9.25% ABV, 100 IBUs and gets a score of 96 on Ratebeer.com, is frequently on tap at various Cincinnati craft beer bars and trendy eateries. Fifty West is no stranger to general high-gravity beer, either. Tidal Shift will be the 33rd craft beer release from the brewery that has an ABV at or above 8%. The new DIPA will be released tomorrow in the brewery’s taproom.
Fifty West’s founder and brewmaster, Blake Horsburgh, about the craft beer release:
“What’s really great about Tidal Shift is that it let us explore three of our favorite things in the beer industry: big flavors, big hops, and the art of the DIPA.”
Below is a description of the “insanely delicious” brew.
Packed full of Columbus, Citra, and Mosaic hops, it’s no surprise that this DIPA sports an intense hop-forward aroma and flavor profile where each sip begins refreshingly juicy and sweet before shifting to an immense, mouth-coating hop-bitterness that’s sure to please the true hop-enthusiast.
