Brewery Insights: This is a big, bold hazy IPA, double dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Azacca Cryo hops…that’s the amount of detail you receive from Lakewood brewing. They should hire us to write some shit.


Overall Score: 6.9

Big D has a solid appearance with darker colors and moderate haze. The palate exceeds the look and meets the brewery expectations of providing a bold, hazy IPA. This beers offers medium hops with decent complexity and bolder flavors. This is a great hazy IPA for bolder drinkers. Hazy IPAs currently corner the market, which makes it difficult for consumers with bolder palates, but Lakewood comes through for all of us with Big D. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that ‘Big D’ is amazing; like Lex Steele if you will. Cheers Degenerates!
