In celebration of their 11th birthday this month, independent Bristol-based brewery Wiper and True are releasing a very limited edition celebratory take on their flagship beer, Kaleidoscope.

An 8.4% double IPA, the celebratory beer KaleiDIPA uses the same premium quality American hops and British malts as Kaleidoscope, the 4.2% pale ale that helped Wiper and True establish their reputation across Bristol and beyond. For the special birthday release, the brew team doubled the quantity of these ingredients, creating a bigger, bolder that still delivers the same rounded, balanced flavour profile as Kaleidoscope.

Speaking about the birthday release, Wiper and True’s founder and CEO Michael Wiper said:

“This is a proper birthday beer – our brewers have really gone to town to celebrate everything we love about Kaleidoscope, and quite literally doubling it. We used twice the amount of hops (Yakima Chief’s finest and freshest harvests of Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic) for bigger and bolder flavours of tropical juice and refreshing citrus zestiness. We also doubled the quantity of wheat for a thicker, fluffier mouthfeel that’s really satisfying without becoming cloying or sickly. This is the biggest beer we’ve brewed in years, in a style we don’t usually explore at Wiper and True, and we’re so pleased with the results. It tastes fantastic – like Kaleidoscope with its party hat on.”

Released to consumers on March 18th, KaleiDIPA will be available both on draught and in can, across the United Kingdom and within Wiper and True’s own taprooms in Bristol. The beer can also be purchased online through Wiper and True’s website:
