Our last pilot batch left our trademark American hops behind and focused on a roasty yet smooth malt profile. While we are OK with this it pleases us to announce that the hops are back – with a vengeance.
Our latest brew is a hop forward West Coast IPA brimfull of both Chinook and Centennial. Hop lovers rejoice.
In this brew we’re marrying a balanced malt base with a whopping 1/4kg of hops in 22,5 liters of beer. We’re pushing hop bursting to the limit by adding 55IBUs of the total 65 during the last 15 minutes of the boil. And staying in the Andrimne/Black Cat mindset – no hop monster is complete without massive dry hopping. The IPA will be double dry hopped with a mix of Chinook and Centennial.
The brew, codenamed “Colic IPA”, is primarily brewed for a new pub in a new town. We promised earlier that we’re hard at work spreading our brews to more pubs and places. Well – we intend to keep our word. Care to venture a guess on where it ends up?
More on this beer and where it ends up later.
