Double IPA

COLLAB WITH EL SEGUNDO

To celebrate 6 years of brewing at The Propagator, we teamed up with our friends at El Segundo on this modern take on a West Coast DIPA featuring new hop varieties Vista and 1019, as well as our trusty Citra and Mosaic for explosive flavors of peach ring, plantain, strawberry, honeysuckle, and mango.

    To celebrate The Propagator’s 6th Anniversary this year we teamed up with our friendly neighbors over at El Segundo Brewing to make a modern West Coast Double IPA, a style that they have thoroughly mastered over the years. We took our standard Gen 1 recipe and started by swapping the standard base malt for pilsner malt, then added dextrose to make sure we achieved a nice dry finish at a higher ABV. We then built on the classic hop duo of Citra and Mosaic, adding Mosaic Cryo for a fermentation dry hop addition before adding a second dry hop of Citra and new USDA variety Vista, as well as experimental hop HBC 1019. The combo with these two new hops adds layers of tropical fruit, citrus, berry, and peach ring aromatic flourishes over a well-balanced flavor with just enough bitterness in the finish to remind you that this is a West Coast IPA.
