A firm citrus hop punch is combined with a soft wheat character in this white IPA
[Character]Rich fruit and resinous hop character balanced with soft and silky mouthfeel from a large addition of wheat.[Food Pairing]Sweet Pork with Orange, Frit of Sirdine with Spice, Croquette with Comte Cheese[Brewer's Voice]Each year the recipe for each Kimagure beer is different, so we never make the same beer twice. There are themes for each season though, and for the last two years we have used citrusy and sweet hops in this White IPA to make a connection with the wide variety of citrus fruit that becomes available every winter. This year, though, we decided to focus more on the resinous character of hops with more bitterness and sharp flavor.
We are using Strata hops for their unique tropical character. Old favorites Idaho 7 and Mosaic help bring out the pungent and resinous side of hop flavor and aroma. This is balanced by a high percentage of wheat to keep the body and mouthfeel soft and refreshing. Think of this beer as the warm winter coat that keeps your body warm while the sharp cold on your nose and ears keeps you feeling invigorated!StyleWhite IPASeriesKimagureABV6.0%IBU50Gas Volume2.5MaltGolden Promise, WheatHopPolaris, Columbus, Centennial, Idaho 7, Strata, MosaicYeastAmerican AleCategoryBeerJAN4589718740102Best Before2023/02/08
