Friends of Friends IPA
Every time we visit Denver, Our Mutual Friend Brewing is a must stop. Their beers are fantastic, their vibe is welcoming, and they emphasize locally sourced ingredients – especially when it comes to malt. And thus, a collab was born! After settling on an IPA (obvs), we decided to emphasize local maltsters from both our regions in our base recipe – Troubadour Pevac Pilsner Malt from Fort Collins, CO; Skagit White Wheat from the Skagit Valley; and Linc Spelt from Othello, WA. As for hops – we used something familiar and predictable – Citra + Centennial – so that you (our drinkers) could pick up on the subtle differences from these unique and distinct base grains. The end result is a classic Hazy IPA that has delicate notes of water cracker and dried hay, along with a pop of ripe tangerine, ruby red grapefruit and blackberry, because it IS an IPA after all.
