A Note on This Beer
Big Grove Brewery might just be the coolest Midwest brewery you’ve never heard of.
- Their hoppy brews are top-notch — at last year’s US Open Beer Championships, they took home the highly competitive Gold Medal in the Juicy/Hazy Pale Ale category!
- They were named one of the Best Breweries in Iowa by the beer nerds at The Beer Travel Guide AND Culture Trip.
- Their hyper-focus on local sustainability earned them the prestigious Platinum-level Certification from the Iowa Green Brewery program.
- Their beers have never crossed state lines before now!
We’re stoked to introduce these Midwestern brewmasters to you with the Double Dry Hopped DIPA they call “one of Big Grove’s greatest Hazies” — today’s Color TV!
To make this ultra-plush juicebomb, the brewers used Mosaic and Ekuanot in the initial dry hop for underlying notes of evergreen and orange peel. Then, in the second dry hop, they added an “irresponsible amount” of Galaxy Hops to give every sip potent flavors of fresh OJ tang and candied tangerine sweetness.
The brewers told us that some locals are pretty miffed they’re even sharing it with non-Iowans at all. This cosmic hopjuice only comes around a couple times a year!
Once you’ve had a taste of all the sweet n’ pillowy citrus juice inside every can of Color TV, we have a feeling the only thing you’ll be miffed about is not discovering Big Grove sooner.
