Champion Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Champion Brewing creates the most cultish, desired, flavor-forward IPAs in the state of Virginia. Their Fruit Basket and Malibu Nights showed us how wild flavor adjuncts can bring shocking new flavors to hoppy brews -- but those were merely a warmup for today’s beer.
Their new Easter Basket DIPA really pushes the boundaries, elevating a resinous Mosaic hopped 8% ABV base with grape jam-like Ethiopian Coffee and roasty chocolate. In short, you’ve never had an IPA like this before.
It sounds like the Easter Bunny’s deranged homebrew, but this well-balanced flavorbomb might just be a taste of the IPA future. Rather than overpowering hoppiness, the additions boost the DIPA’s intense flavors. Single Origin Ethiopian roast amplifies Mosaic Hop’s berry character while seemingly doubling the 70 IBUs of bitter. Real Chocolate balances resin notes with subtle sweetness and a smooth, cocoa-spiked finish.
Chocolate and coffee in an IPA? Sounds like madness, but in the hands of Champion -- it’s a delicious, super balance experiment in the future of hoppy flavor. Bring your friends over for Easter and instead of hunting for dyed eggs, hide a few “Easter Baskets” in the grass.
