Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) recently announced that Liquid Truth Serum IPA is hitting shelves and taps now as the brewery’s latest Limited Release offering.
Developed to be the newest addition to Dogfish Head’s family of innovative, off-centered India Pale Ales, Liquid Truth Serum IPA has been created with a “unique process [that] involves pelletized, powdered, leaf and liquefied hops that are all added post boil creating an intensely aromatic ale with soft, citrusy fruit hop notes.” Even though 100% of these various forms of hops were added post boil, Liquid Truth Serum was still able to pick up over 60 IBUs. This all results in a 6.8% ABV, “hazy and golden-orange” India Pale Ale that is “super-aromatic and juicy-hoppy without being deceptively bitter.”
MYTH: Beers can only pick up IBUs by adding hops during the boil.
TRUTH: Here is a 100% post-boil hop oriented IPA that picks up over 60 IBUs in process.
Liquid Truth Serum IPA is rolling out now and will be available through December 2017. You can find this Limited Release offering in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware, and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution network. Prost!

Fun Fact – Concerning the label artwork: “To kick off the Dogfish Head Art Series, the brewery once again teamed up with longtime friend and highly acclaimed designer, Marq Spusta, a California-based artist known for his distinct illustrative style, to create the Liquid Truth Serum label and artwork. The hop-forward India Pale Ale is part of the annual Art Series beer line up where the brewery collaborates with artists to create custom pieces of artwork for their seasonal ales. The label features Spusta’s version of a traveling medicine show unveiling the all-seeing “eye of truth” exposing the myth that all hops need to be added in the boil.”
