’Tis the season for fresh/wet/what-have-you IPAs! And we’ve got a dang tasty one for y’all!…
This newest addition to our line-up is a nod to Trappist brewing traditions that are marked by diligence & exacting details. Our take on this globally-lauded style gets pretty dang close, short of being in Belgium ourselves.
Built on a large, sturdy, yet delicate base of Pilsner malt…. with bits of Munich, White Wheat, & Acidulated to round out the body & add nuance. Belgian Candi Sugar was also added to boost the ABV & help dry out the back end. Loral hops provide a firm, yet approachable bitterness, as well as slight notes of noble grassiness & candied lemon. A traditional Trappist ale yeast was utilized to drive forward esters of pear, apple & mixed citrus… with super light peppery phenols present throughout.
Big & bold with a fuller body… yet smooth, with a wisp of sweetness & a crisp bone dry finish. Be careful… this one will sneak up on you quickly!
(Did anyone catch the math reference in the name…?)
