Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks, one of my favourite BC breweries, has announced the release of Valis: its first ever imperial IPA.
Knowing their love of fantasy and sci-fi, I’m assuming the name is a reference to Philip K. Dick’s final trilogy. If so, that is awesome!
Valis comes in at 9% abv and 68 ibu. It’s a full bodied IPA with hefty stone fruit notes and a dank floral hoppiness from the use of 007: The Golden Hops and El Dorado Hops.
The beer will be launched at the VBW 2017 Craft Beer Lift off event and will be available at the Fuggles & Warlock tasting room the same day. Bottles will begin shipping to select private liquor stores next week.
