Especially for the 5 year anniversary of the Beertemple in Amsterdam we were asked to create an awesome westcoast style IIPA. Our answer was the big fat double 5 IPA. With 5 hop varieties and some love the beer got a warm welcome!
However, the owner of the Beertemple was so impressed he decided to have the beer as his new house-beer! Eventually it became the house beer of the Beertemple, ‘t Arendsnest & Craft&Draft; all located in Amsterdam.
The Big Fat Double 5 was given the Gold medal in the Dutch beer challenge for best Imperial IPA of the Netherlands..

Please note that we don’t really “rate” beers. We are beer geeks, not beer snobs. There’s a time and place for almost every beer. But…
For our own purposes we use the following system:
4 = We would definitely order another of this beer
5 = We would go out of our way to find another of this beer.
