Jooooooose. An unctuous juice bomb loaded with mango, papaya, banana, guava, lychee and lime. It’s a tropical paradise discovered through Incognito, LUPOMAX and Dip Hopping techniques.
A modern approach to old skool beer. Aromatic, juicy and a dryish bitter finish for balance. Mosaic, El Dorado, Amarillo and Galaxy all playing together at various stages on the hot and cold side to pull out as much hop flavour as possible. The big 8.5% base provides a perfect structure to let the complex aromatics shine.
1X Sunset Strip
West Coast IPA
An ode to the halcyon days of pine, resin and citrus hop character. A well structured Westie with a solid body and dry finish, which allows the dominant grapefruit, cedar and hop spices to shine.
Cascade is the real hero here, supported amicably by Simcoe, Chinook and Mosaic. Chinook Salvo was used for extra punch, and LUPOMAX Mosaic delivered the final resin sack-whack. We lightened the malt base a touch, and dialled up the citrus and piney hops. Just like the good old days, like 5 years ago.
1X True Romance
Layers and layers of complexity. Subtle a topical hop notes with stone fruit and spices are melded with chocolate, caramel and biscuit malt flavours. Everything together at once, in harmony.
Folding biscuit, caramel, chocolate and dextrinous malts into each other we’ve landed on the maltier side for this one. A cavalcade of Simcoe, Chinook, Cashmere, Citra, Strata and Centennial were deployed at various stages to round out the hoppiness and combine with the layers of malt for a truly remarkable Red experience.
DDH Hazy Pale Ale
Super able to be smashed. Tropical hop flavours of papaya, coconut and banana are delivered on a creamy base and dry finish. The skill is in its simplicity and a drinkability that is dangerous.
Mucking about in fermenters, we’ve changed things up for this Hazy. Talus, Galaxy and Mosaic unite in a good old hop stand and dip hop. Nothing in the boil, all downstream hopping. A rich tapestry of pineapple, coconut, passionfruit and banana arise with a smooth body and a dry, tantalising finish.
