Van Dammage

Belgian IPA

A refreshingly different nose abundant with tart fruity esters accompanied by complex coriander spiciness. The overall malt profile is low with faint red apple sweetness that’s complimented by the spice flavors throughout. Subtle citrus hop flavors lead into a pleasantly bitter finish resonating slightly before an overall dryness endures.

  • ABV: 6.9%
  • IBU: 73

Origin Story

For anyone working in the craft beer industry, it's really no big secret that hops are "in" these days, particularly with the focus from many breweries falling on the beloved American IPA. Short's is no exception to this new standard, as our Huma has created quite a name for itself and still leads the pack as our number one selling beer. When it comes to the creative/innovative side of things, many brewers look at this new obsession with hoppy beers to see if they can fuel new styles to go with the increased desire for bitterness. This can be seen through styles like India Black Ales, India Brown Ales, and even India Pilsners. Another common theme that plays into these hybrid hopped beer styles is to simply change up the yeast that normally accompanies most IPAs. One practice in particular that caught the eye of our very own Tony Hanson was fusing bold citrusy American hops with the unique flavor profile of Belgian yeast strains. Tony had made it a point to try numerous versions from other breweries who attempted to unite these two worlds and, needless to say, he was less than impressed. Therefore, he took it upon himself to see if this union was truly meant for success or just another fad that would come and go like big hair in the ‘80s. Besides, we had some Belgian yeast lying around that we needed to use up, so it just seemed like the perfect opportunity.
