Herevana – Garage Project – 11 Triple IPA

Here we have: Garage Project 11 Triple IPA. I had the ’10’ almost a year ago! where I mentioned that the first GP beers I had was in 2013, so I’m a few years behind the timeline, but still in touch.

And to double down, or up, they made a 11 Stout! What could possibly go wrong?

Garage Project make the Garage Project 11 Triple IPA in Wellington, 🇳🇿 , New Zealand, which is a IIPA DIPA – Imperial / Double Hazy (NEIPA) beer of 11.0% ABV. The can is 3.8 standard drinks in NZ

Cracking the can releases a familiar to hazy beer aroma, fruity, juicy. A really cloudy hazy pour with a brilliance of a stark white head that settles into something more manageable but still proud atop. The Aroma in the glass hints that this has got some heavy hitting flavour.


Which is what it is. A heavy dense beer with a couple of things going on, you almost shy away from what could be alcohol burn, to get a spoonful of sweet sugar on top of a prickly bitterness. The second sup is less scary or traumatic , without that up from tang, but sill with the syrup and the bitterness.

Not a quaffing beer.

As you sit and sip it seems to settle more into itself and becomes easier, although still big and bold, and that tang, the burn, that moves to the end, where it pops into just to remind you.

I lovey big beer or some class and substance, a bit of love and care and a big celebration.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 on the arbitrary number scale. A bold party beer just because they can, delivered in a lovely easy access package that shifts and moves as it warms and you get used to it. A big beer for a bit birthday.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.

11 Anniversary IIIPA, brewed with light lager, wheat and oats and jammed full with eleven different hop additions, no two the same, using everything from hop pellets to cryo, incognito and aromatic hop extracts – starting in the mash, continuing through the kettle, whirlpool and the multiple additions to the fermenter right up until it’s packed

Brewers Notes

IIPA DIPA – Imperial / Double Hazy (NEIPA)

The “Imperial / Double New England India Pale Ale (NEIPA)”, also known as “Imperial / Double Hazy IPA” or Double Juicy IPA, is an strong IPA with intense fruit flavors and aromas, a soft body, and smooth mouthfeel, and often opaque with substantial haze. The term “Double / Imperial” is arbitrary and simply implies a stronger version of an NEIPA, generally based around the standard Hazy IPA with 8.0 to 9.5% ABV. The emphasis on late hopping, especially dry hopping, with hops with tropical fruit qualities lends the specific ‘juicy’ character for which this style is known. Appearance ranges from hazy, often opaque, straw to yellow and sometimes with an orange hue. The juicy effect refers to an impression of fruit juice or ripe fruit, not actual additive. Haziness comes from the dry hopping regime, starch haze, set pectins, or other techniques but not suspended yeast. Compared to Double IPA, the Imperial NEIPA has a fuller, softer mouthfeel, a more fruit-forward late hop expression, a more restrained perceived bitterness balance and a hazier appearance. The style also includes the “Triple Hazy IPA” or “Triple NEIPA”, a massively hoppy beer of at least 9.5% ABV with outrageous amounts of dry hopping flavor, malt flavor, alcohol and bitterness, without the big maltiness balance of an American barleywine. The Triple NEIPA may be similar to a Double NEIPA in hop character, but is differentiated from the style by a thickier, syrupy body and often accented by even more intense dry hopping that makes it a heavy sipping beer.
