The Lads

This is our own try at the under evaluated Imperial/Double IPA style. Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. You can thank west coast American brewers for this somewhat reactionary style.

Tip, drink it young to benefit from all the hop aromas!

Where the name does come from, you'll ask. Hint: Zeus and Apollo are Higgins' beloved, highly trained, and exceptionally loyal, Doberman Pincher guard dogs. They provide an additional layer of security for Robin's Nest. Higgins often refers to them as simply "The Lads".
