This is the Snobby Beer review of Drake’s Hopocalypse from Drake’s Brewing Company in San Leandro, California. Hopocalypse is an imperial IPA (or double IPA) brewed with several varieties of hops (including the popular Citra variety). The beer is also brewed with Rye and and Vienna malts. The brewery says that the beer is loosely filtered to preserve the flavors.
From the Drake’s website:
“Hopocalypse Imperial India Pale Ale — 9.3% ABV, 100+ IBUs**
This deep orange monster is loosely filtered to keep the integrity of the malt & hops intact. Equal amounts of American 2-row malt and English pale malt are combined with Vienna and Rye malts, then balanced with Citra, Simcoe and Chinook hops for flavor. We then dry hop it with Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops for an intense hoppy aroma. Enjoy the massive aromatic Revelation and prophetic flavor of this beer now and forever after. — Available in February”
