Sudwerk Big Dipl India Pale Lager

Brewed by Sudwerk Brewing Co

American IPA9.0% ABV90 IBU

THE BIG DIPL debuted on draft and in 22-ounce bottles at a free, space-themed event, on Friday May 16, at The Sudwerk Dock Store, 2001 Second St., Davis.

We have continued our mission to redefine the American Lager, with a bold brew that is a super nova of hop bitterness and aroma. It showcases the coveted Galaxy hops, a hard-to-find variety from New Zealand that combines the tang of grapefruit, melon and passion fruit. IPA fans will enjoy this highly aromatic, intensely flavorful lager, colliding on the palate for the hoppiest beer ever bottled by Sudwerk.

Sudwerk co-owner Trent Yackzan said, “We’ve been experimenting with Galaxy hops over the past year, and our brewers are really excited to finally release this beer. It’s a flavor profile that you don’t often taste in the Sacramento region.”

Beyond the Galaxy, the UC Davis-trained brewers added Simcoe and Summer hops, topped off with two rounds of dry hopping. It orbits at 9 percent alcohol by volume and 90 IBUs. Because of the higher alcohol content, the taproom will serve it in 13-ounce pours instead of pints.

THE BIG DIPL’s label unleashes a double-headed California bear, surrounded by hop invaders. The Big Dipper is part of the Great Bear constellation, Ursa Major. T-shirts featuring the intergalactic lager’s label will be available at the taproom.

Tangier is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with spicy citrus aromas and stone fruit flavors. These flavors, with the addition of lightly roasted malts and brilliant hop bitterness, make Tangier a beverage as refreshing as it is exotic.
