It’s a tropical summer for Delaware’s largest craft brewery. Dogfish Head Lupu Luau IPA is going national.
The newest India pale ale in founder Sam Calagione’s arsenal is Dogfish Head Lupu Luau IPA, a coconut heavy offering.
The tropical IPA is brewed with toasted coconut, experimental hops, and dehydrated coconut water. That might sound weird. Dehydrated water? By removing the water content from coconut water, what are left behind are natural sugars, and electrolyte heavy, coconutty compounds and flakes that further enhance this beer.
The hops in Dogfish Head Lupu Luau IPA are quite special as well. The brewery found this experimental variety to have a strong wood, citrus, and coconut flavor. So much so that Dogfish Head contracted the majority of the domestic yield just for themselves (and this beer).
This “tropical trifecta” is available nationally in 12 ounce bottles and draft starting in July.
Style: IPA (w/ Toasted Coconut. Dehydrated Coconut Water.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: July, 2017
Lonerider Magnificent 77 American IPA, brewed with 77 different hop varieties. First in the world? As far as we can tell.
I’m sure you brewers and home brewers are wondering about the process. Hops from 7 different countries were blended for the 7 hop additions in the 77 minute boil. After fermentation, Lonerider Magnificent 77 is dry-hopped with a different variety every day for 7 days, then 14 more varieties over the subsequent 7 days. If all those numbers got confusing, that means a lot of hops.
In the end Lonerider Magnificent 77 is a 7.7% alcohol by volume IPA (77 IBUs). Are you seeking this hop monster? The Raleigh, North Carolina brewery is releasing these cans once again at a dock party on July 7th.
As for the extensive hop lineup for Lonerider Magnificent 77, the brewery isn’t disclosing. Besides, would you read them all?
Hops: 77 varieties.
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited release.
