Beere Brewing – Macrowave DDH IPA


Beere Brewing – Macrowave DDH IPA Review

The double dry-hopped hazy IPA. Alongside its Double IPA cousin, the DDH DIPA was the prototypical highly sought-after style that launched a thousand tall-can SKUs throughout North America in the late 2010s. Here in BC, a handful of hot new breweries forged a seemingly-unstoppable New School that dominated #Beerstagram from 2017 until COVID shook things up last year.

During our recent tour of the North Shore beer scene, we took the opportunity to stop in at one of those ‘cool kid’ breweries and see how the pandemic has treated them. Judging by Macrowave DDH IPA, things on the brewing side are under control at Beere Brewing Co.

This hazy ale poured as thick and gold as natural, unfiltered grapefruit juice.

On the nose, there was a tropical New World hop bouquet with grapefruit and coconut.

On the palate, there was a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Macrowave was soft but juicy, with grapefruit flavours, a hint of pineapple, and a bit of a bite. As the label says, this Beere is “Nice and soft from oats and wheat in the mash, with all that juicy stuff you want.”

For all the delicious DDH hazies you may have encountered in the last five years, Macrowave might make you crave the style all the more.
