It's a beautiful day for a hazy IPA.
Maybe you're out on the course with your friends, tossing a disc, trying to make the DGPT(Disc Golf Pro Tour). Maybe you're a dues paying member of the PDGA(Professional Disc Golf Association).
If that's you, we're sorry we called it Frolf. You'll want to enjoy this refreshing beverage AFTER your round.
But if you're just out there, tossing a F***bee with your pals, you might want this beer to sip as you stroll, looking for your wayward tee shot.
We used a few tricks we’ve learned along the way to make this delicious IPA. We started with a base of Canadian pale malt, wheat, and oats. Instead of adding hops during the boil, we held off. After 90 minutes of boiling, we cooled the wort down to 85C and added a generous amount of Ekuanot, El Dorado, and Polaris. This lends a gentle bitterness and means that more of the volatile aroma compounds stay in the beer (we want those!), instead of being driven off during the boil.
Fermented with our house hazy strain, we then dry hopped with a heavy (and we mean heavy) dose of Galaxy, Amarillo, and Vista hops to get a bright tropical punch flavour profile.
This beer has a full body and luxurious mouth-feel with notes of pineapple, melon, mango and gooseberry. Gentle bitterness balanced with dynamic fruit forwardness and a round finish.
