TUPPS Brewery – Double Dry Hopped IPA Series #2
Word on the street was there aren’t any amazing hazy IPAs from DFW. TUPPS from the northeast Dallas suburb, McKinney proves that DFW has at least one amazing New England India Pale Ale (NEIPA). Series #2 is brewed with a break down of 50% Galaxy, 35% Citra and 15% Mosaic hops. The aroma and flavor both provide bright, juicy tropical and citrus notes. I just love the hop flavor on this one, everything seems to hit just right. Bitterness is low, providing the smoother feel you expect from this style. If you’re wondering about the appearance, Serie’s #2 is super hazy, but not at the chicken soup extremes you see from some NEIPAs. This one can hang with some of the greats from B-52, SpindleTap and Baa Baa. I’ll be excited to see if TUPPS will push to make more in the style and will seek Houston distribution.
