Double IPA is a style I love to drink, but not something I necessarily want to have a keg of at a time when it’s just me and my wife doing the majority of the drinking in our socially distant present. Double Kapi from À la Fût is really doing it for me these days. The hops (Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic) are well handled and it has an underlying acidity (not the first thing you notice, but noticeable) that I think makes it way too easy to drink for 7.5% abv. I can also pick it up at my local IGA when I do my grocery shopping.
Homebrewing side note: In the past, I have played with adding a small dose of lime juice at packaging to dial down pH and add some citrus flavor for hoppy citrus-forward beers, and I think this is inspiring me to try it again on something like a hoppy pale ale.
I’m also a fan most hoppy things out of MaBrasserie (e.g. 3 balles 2 prises, Momo, etc.), and I’ve found myself going to back to Unibroue for the classics (la Fin du Monde, Don de Dieu. etc.).
Anyone have any other recommendations for good, easily accessible (especially in COVID times), commercial beers that you’d rather buy than make?
