Introducing the Belgian take on IPA: unfiltered, blond and subtly hoppy. With the typical fruity fullness of an IPA and dry-hopping that delivers a tropical citrus note. A cross between the Belgian tradition of top-fermentation beers and the British-American tradition of the IPA - the best of both worlds.
4 different hop varieties and hopped 4 times - Hapkin is a beer to be proud of. And this BIPA goes even further with three additional hops from the US: Sabro, Amarillo and Centennial. But what makes the Hapkin BIPA truly Belgian is the fine balance between these hops and how it creates a harmonious interplay of bitter and fruity flavours. At the end of the process, the BIPA is also refermented in the bottle. In this way, it really is a local beer.

How to make your Hapkin BIPA taste like heaven? Cool the bottle at 5° Celsius and make sure your Hapkin glass is clean and spotless.
Open the bottle. Tilt the Hapkin glass to a 45 °angle and slowly pour the Hapkin BIPA without the bottle touching the glass.
Halfway through, bring the glass to an upright position and continue pouring until the full, white head of foam reaches the rim of the glass.
Leave about a centimeter of beer in the bottle. This way you’ll prevent the yeast cells at the bottom to render your beer cloudy and a bit more bitter.
Enjoy your perfectly served Hapkin BIPA to the max!
