Using methods harking back to the start of craft beer boom, Jaku aims to bring into focus classic hop bitterness and herbal-ike citrus aroma to provide impact.
[Character]Jaku is what IPAs of yesteryear were all about: a firm hop bitterness and lots of hop flavor. The hop character has a herbal-like citrus note with a lingering bitterness.[Food Pairing]Peperoni Pizza, Meat dish with herbs [Naming]Jaku harks back to IPAs of days gone by.[Brewer's Voice]IPA has changed significantly since the craft beer boom began. To explore the difference we made two beers with the same recipe. The amount of each hop used is the same in each recipe, but changing the timing of usage creates a different final product. Tasting them side by side shows just how preferences have shifted from the bitter side of hops to the fruity side.StyleAmerican IPASeriesFreedomABV6.0%IBU62Gas Volume2.6MaltPilsner, Wheat, Carapils, T50HopPahto, Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe, CentennialYeastAmerican AleCategoryBeerJAN4589718740744Best Before2022/01/07
