How Do You Say Monkey In Latin? ~ Dubbel DIPA

Brewed with our friends at MicroBrasserie Charlevoix this beer shines with the malt body of a Dubbel, yet is fermented low like a Brut IPA. It’s dry-hopped big-time; think American Double IPA on the backbone of a subtle Belgian yeast strain.

Admittedly, you probably haven’t had anything quite like it, but this one has something for everyone! It is irresponsibly hopped with an insane amount of Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy hops. How Do You Say Monkey In Latin? is a mind-melting blend of hops and malt. It brims with aromas of berries, grapes and stone fruit while remaining super dry and easy to enjoy. Get it while it lasts!

Sam’s Take

Fred Tremblay, founder of MicroBrasserie Charlevoix, along with the good folks at Black Oak Brewery and I first brewed this way back in 2012 as the official event beer for the 10th anniversary of the Canadian Brewing Awards. Our plan for the collaboration was to brew something that tested people and stretched their idea of what beer could be. We took two styles of beer that at first glance don’t seem compatible but really can work quite well together. The raisin and plum flavours from the Dubbel malt body blend seamlessly with the fruit and berry flavours of the Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy hops. The yeast strain we use helps to promote both aspects of a traditional Belgian-style dubbel and a North American IPA simultaneously.
