Jopen Northsea IPA

Appetising ship’s beer

The Dutch response to American IPA’s , 6,5%

Jopen Northsea IPA (aka Mooie Nel) is an IPA containing plenty of American hops, which creates bitterness with lots of fruity tones. Back when long journeys by sea were the norm, IPA was brewed to be extra-strong, and extra hops was added so that it could be drunk in the colonies. In the 17th century The Netherlands produced its own version of IPA, or ‘duraebel scheepsbier (long-life ship’s beer)’, for the Dutch East Indies.

IPA has returned to Europe thanks to the American Craft Revolution. It is the fastest growing style of beer in the USA. Jopen Northsea IPA is our Dutch take on the modern IPA; Every swig of this beer is a pleasure.

Flavour associations

In tasting the flavors associated with Jopen Northsea IPA:

On draft at Burg Bier Festival 2014. Hazy golden coloured, medium-sized head. Hoppy nose, tropical fruit. Smooth bitter flavour, besides hops also some malt character shining through. Seems like Jopen has chosen its Mooie Nel to be a more hops/malt balanced beer instead of a one-dimensional hops bomb. Too bad for the hops heads, but good for me :-).
