Spoiler Warning ($18/4-pack) 7.1% ABV

Sour IPA DDH with Strata and Nectaron

Our goal was to replicate the character of our usual hazy IPAs, but trading the balancing bitterness for acidity. We hopped it with Strata for its beautiful tropical fruit aroma and Nectaron, a just named New Zealand variety that brings supporting citrus flavors. This isn’t a kettle sour, the acidity, alcohol, and reinforcing fruity esters are all produced by Lallemand WildBrew Philly Sour™ (Lachancea thermotolerans).

Exaggerated Truth ($18/4-pack) 7.2% ABV

Hazy IPA DDH with Cashmere

We occasionally divert a few gallons from a batch for experiments dubbed “Mad Fermentations.” Our usual goal is to manipulate the fermentation to enhance the perception of fruity hop aromatics. Sometimes the results are good, others we learn something…

This recipe started as Mad Fermentations Vol 4. It was our favorite and luckily one we immediately received calls to re-brew. It’s an IPA fermented with a blend of English Ale and Hefeweizen strains, then double-dry-hopped with Cashmere. Sweeter than our typical IPAs with a tropical aroma of lemongrass and candy.

Cloud Palace ($20/4-pack) 8.0% ABV

DIPA DDH with Citra and Simcoe

We finally brought back the recipe from the first hazy double IPA we ever canned! We dry hopped it with equal parts Citra, Citra Cryo®, Simcoe, and Simcoe Cryo® to provide big mango and citrus aromatics. The result is a balance of juice and resin, with a touch of vanilla thanks to our house English ale strain.
