A Note on This Beer
Tip for Hop-heads: To get your hoppy beers like IPAs and Pale Ales delivered super fresh go into your crate and move up your shipping date to the soonest available.
Devout hopheads hop off the plane at LAX and cruise down Sepulveda Blvd. for just 10 minutes for a pilgrimage at SoCal’s hottest hop temple: El Segundo Brewing Company. Their hop-worshipping brewers create beers that show off every kind of hops (or as they call it, “that glorious flower”).
Their Hop Plunge Double IPA is an 8.9% ABV tribute to Simcoe’s aromatic lemon and floral raspberry side AND its pine and woodsy qualities. With some backup vocals from Centennial and Citra, this IPA combines rose and apple aromas with deep sticky resin for the full Simcoe West Coast DIPA experience.
Aromas of mango and ripe blackberries tinged with thyme rise from a rich golden pour. At first sip, papaya and grapefruit flavors sweep in before bitter juniper and earthy pine take over for a resoundingly bitter finish. Hop Plunge’s interplay between sweet and bitter, dank and fruity keeps your palate on its toes -- the way a great West Coast IPA should.
Hop Plunge is the kind of DIPA that never gets old. Made by hop geeks, for hop geeks, this is a beer that keeps you coming back for more dank, fruity, and fresh AF hoptastic flavor.
We bet Q-Tip left his wallet at El Segundo Brewing.
