Extra Sprinkles IPA
What’s an anniversary without extra sprinkles?! For this recipe, as is the case of Anniversary IPA recipes of years past, we wanted to make a quintessential “Cloudburst IPA” – something bright and fruit forward, bitter, with a dry finish so that it’s built for drinking. We start with a clean and simple base of Rahr 2 Row and Weyermann Pils malts. And then we implemented our favorite hop varieties – Chinook, Strata, Citra, Mosaic. BUT THEN, we threw in an unpredictable twist – a little bit of Nectaron, a newer hop variety from New Zealand that we’ve never used before. The end result is an assertive blend of citrus (like tangerine & white grapefruit) and tropical (like pineapple & passionfruit) notes, with a touch of watermelon rind, papaya, and white grape must from the new guy. Thank you for allowing us to brew something like this for over 7 years – here’s to 7 more!
