Limited Edition – Supernova DIPA

eight-degrees-brewing-supernova-dipaA double IPA with double dry hopping of Simcoe, Amarillo and Enigma, this beer is an explosion of flavour. Expect a big hop aroma of pine, grapefruit rind, tangerine and peaches with a good assertive bitterness, followed by a dry finish that leaves your palate demanding more.

Like a supernova, this beer might just be your brightest shining moment of the night.

Although we genuinely hope not…

Tasting notes
Colour/appearance: light orange with a fluffy off-white head

  1. Where can I find bottles of the Supernova in Dublin? Would like to bring a bottle or two back to my beer geek friends in Canada 🙂
